    NC - cop shoots guy - charged with just manslaughter

    http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-...hot-by-police/

    An unarmed man who may have been looking for help after a vehicle wreck was shot and killed by a police officer Saturday as he ran toward him, police said. The officer was later charged with voluntary manslaughter.




    Sounds like murder, not manslaughter to me...

    just goes to my argument that LEO should be disarmed
    Luke 22:36 ; 36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    Our military in WAR ZONES, many times are under "Do not fire unless fired upon" ROE, why is it that American citizens aren't afforded the same consideration by US Law enFORCEment?????????

    It sure would save the lives of an increasing number of UNARMED people who are killed by police.

    You do know that manslaughter is classified as a murder, don't you?

    BTW--- a voluntary manslaughter charge would seem to be appropriate in this case IMO UNLESS there is evidence that a higher level charge of murder is justified!

    If one is not willing to stand for his rights, he doesn't have any Rights.

    Don'tchaknow...it is VITAL that we assure all LEOs that they will "go home safe" at the end of their shift...regardless of the collateral damage done under the color of law.

    That, and their disgusting sycophants need to be shunned and face severe economic reprisals for the scum that they are. I'd love to own a grocery store chain and refuse to sell to cop lovers. I'd tell them that they deserve to starve for enabling these vermin.

    Screw that. These cowardly pukes were not drafted. I'm fed up with their b!tching about how dangerous their jobs are [sic: their jobs are quite safe according to occupational studies].

    I agree .. being killed in a car accident or being shot -- you are still as dead as the fisherman -- who suffer much higher death rates.

    Police said Kerrick was charged with voluntary manslaughter, which under North Carolina law involves killing without malice using 'excessive force' in exercising 'imperfect self-defense.'
    I don't know what to say to this. Without malice?

    Police initially called Ferrell and Kerrick's encounter 'appropriate and lawful.'
    The go-to response.

    Highly unusual for the CMPD to blame one of their own...especially since they regularly do all investigations internally.

    remember guys he has only been charged with manslaughter. he is still a long way from conviction.

    the civil suit should really rack up, and that might be the reason he was charged. to make it look like the dept. is doing everything legal to try and get away form responsibility
