Re: “Officer identified in Park Plaza shooting UPDATE

Just curious...when did it become okay for thugs in a parking lot to approach a juvenile female minor and entice her to enter the vehicle with them (probably not wanting to take her to Starbucks for a drink, or the library to ponder the great works of philosophy), and THEN after being alerted by the girl's mother, the LRPD officer approaches the car, orders it lawfully to stop (suspicious behavior, at the very least), and then seeing the officer, throw it in reverse and stomp on the pedal in an attempt to get away? This is acceptable behavior now? We are condoning this and casting a guilty verdict on the officer in question for using unacceptable amounts of force? WTH??

I'm guessing folks that sit in their ivory towers and don't have to rub shoulder to shoulder with this kind of thuggery can sit back and pontificate on the merits of the case before the investigation is really even started. Great for you. As SHolmes points out, it very well could have been my daughter. Hot news tip, it hit a lot closer to home for me. The 17 year old in female works with my daughter, a 17 year old female. Thank GOD for the quick actions of Mall Security and the LRPD in this case. I agree, it would be a nice rosy little sweet world if we did not need the security or the LRPD on site at Park Plaza but once again, hot news flash, the bad guys are out there, and they are relentless in their pursuit of injustice.

Laws are in place, laws were enforced, we are a nation of laws and not the law of the jungle, or the whim of what is politically correct or least distasteful. Sorry gang, if this had been MY daughter that was approached, and then I saw the carelessness that the bad guys demonstrated towards the public at large, including law enforcement, I would have been mildly upset that all three thugs didn't catch a bullet. We The People are angry, and demand justice (that's right, if the officer is wrong, then push it to the max. If bad guys are wrong, push it to the max once again. True justice is blind.)
