Where are we now in this country?  First that there is so little respect for the law that people -even poor or homeless -think it's okay to steal and when caught, fight with the cops?  And THEN cops that are so without discipline that they lose perspective and take a human LIFE over something stolen from -A WALMART!?!
Imagine what things look like if the economy really crashes and suddenly you have hungry people out there with crying children.

What I gathered (from the video) was that the woman was shot because she was attempting to run down the security officer.  Theft is one thing, attempting to run over a cop is another. I highly suspect this event will be analyzed to the max. If it's found that the officer should not have fired on the woman, he'll most certainly pay the price for his action.

I considered that angle but they didn't make that accusation specifically - though I'm sure it will surface if it's true - they just said he fired after the car began to move.  The behavior by the women was outrageous but not deserving of an execution.  I could certainly see how this officer could have been enraged over their behavior.  I'd have been incredulous myself.  People seem to think that the world owes them something these days and if "it" isn't willing to pony up, well they'll just take what they want.  They deserve to be in jail if they did what is alleged.  But not dead.

So now the kids are traumatized after having their mother blown away by security cops.
What I found disturbing was the harsh, racist and totally callous comments made by people who seen the video.
I just couldn't believe the venomous hatred, racism and mind numbing ignorance displayed by the people who posted comments.

Sad, just sad and nauseating. It's all too easy to take a life and people will use any reason under the sun to justify it too.

Next thing you know the school crossing guards will be packing heat and maybe even librarians too. Is this what constitutes a "civilized" society now days?  :no:

naturally though, a librarian's gun would have a silencer on it.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

If you watched the video it was the Sheriff's Deputy that shot the thief. Don't steal you won't get shot......a toy ain't worth dying for.

i totally agree, but i would like to point out that some people think it's ok to shoot and kill someone who takes things from their home.
is this different?

Neither is it worth killing for though.  IF they weren't actually trying to drive him over then he could have just recorded the license # and pick them up later.  If the CCTV doesn't prove his version he is going to be in big, big trouble.  I support law enforcement but I don't think they are perfect.

He shot at a car with kids in it. He could have hit anyone in the car if it was moving. That's the thing that upsets me the most. Right in front of them is not cool, ever, nor will it teach them respect for authority.  Walmart has security cameras inside and outside of their stores covering all entrances and the parking lots and they should show what happened. The broadcast doesn't say they tried to run over the security officer or that they were going in his direction. The security officer didn't say that either, only that one woman hit him with her purse when he tried to stop them from leaving the store. They could have just enlarged the security film showing the make and license number of the car and sent police with a warrant to the owner's home. The altercation would be grounds for arrest and in-store cameras would have recorded what was stolen. This could have been handled much better than it was.
