What about Arizona swat team using 60 bullets to stop an innocent man whose wife saw strange figures moving outside their window while attending to her infant and the husband clearly worried, took his weapon with him to see what was going on.

Her husband a young Iraqi war veteran who was sure he might have to protect his family opens the door to be shot 60 times.

What are America's police smoking or popping? This over kill agenda that's been growing by leaps and bounds reeks of officers clearly out of control.

Cops killing family dogs and on their own property. Cops killing unarmed people. What in hell has gone terribly wrong with-in America's police departments that this sort of violence is the order given?

A grand mother was killed a few months back as she fled to a relatives home next door because of her fear that someone was lurking around. She was so frightened she forgot she had her pistol when fleeing to her relatives home and the police killed her.

Who needs a police force if this is to be the order of the day! All civilians armed or not, guilty of a crime or not, will be shot on sight! Who needs Marshall law? We have a police killing spree going on through-out the nation.

I have talked with folks who claim they will never call the police if they need one because they are unsure how it may turn out! innocent folks, even critters, are being targeted. How crazy is that? These officers were so gun ho they even shot up their own police cars.

The man and women in this car could not even be identified as a man and women at first because they were so brutalized by the bullets. I don't know the ins and outs of this story at the moment but just say, for example, that the women was being abducted and the man her abductor! Does the abducted person pay the price for being kidnapped? This could well be a scenario that one day plays out. Could it not?

America's so called peace makers, here at home and in other parts of the world, wars, have been operating in a mindless way for far too long..

The police have a hard job, but too many of them are obviously taking out their stress in totally inappropriate ways. This wasn't Bonnie and Clyde they went after, so WTF?

When numbers like in the article come to light are there no investigations ? This is unbelievable and the question raised there might well be justified (as to acting drugged) Even one such incident is one too many, but by now I've been reading these police horror reports for years here, that must be stopped!

Yes, we do have a second amendment so trying to protect home and family should be no surprise to police. In the Az case.

One of the problems with so many guns in private hands is that police do over react and for people, it tends to bring out the worst. A linebacker with the Kansas City Chiefs, killed his girl friend and then himself, they had a child together.

Another 17 year old boy was killed for being in a car that was playing music too loudly for another customer at a gas station, the other customer shot into the car. Then this man that is now claiming "fear for his life" left without calling the police. He was later arrested and his claim of a shot gun in the car with the 17 year old boy, none was there. (Need I say that this happened in Florida?)

The police in Cleveland show about 10 rounds per-cop, but why? Not that I don't understand the situation, I do. Blood is pumping and adrenalin is rushing while trigger fingers are working. However, if this couple did shoot a police officer where is the gun? None was found. I think that to call this a regrettable situation is a vast understatement. Two people are dead. So again...why?
