    I'm afraid I can't muster much sympathy for this guy.

    Though I hate to see police brutality, This guy sounds like a thug & a low life for stealing those PS3's. I would guess this guy has done things like this in the past and would have done more in the future. Society has 1 less bum.

    Not really "funny" in the ha ha ha sense (well, maybe just an ensee weensee bit), but funny in the sense of "funny... what comes around goes around". I may start believing in carma...

    I'm curious if after the cops shot him, they looked over and said "and your little dog, too <wicked laugh>" BLAM!!! BLAM!!! BLAM!!!

    Yeah, me too, but you're right, this doesn't seem like that. They figured he was a violent criminal, his German Shepard looked like he was going to attack and he was holding what looked like a gun. Turned out to be a game controller, ironically. Kinda sad for the wasted life and fact that the one who shot them is probably a little upset, but I agree, instant karma.

    I can't say I blame the cop at all.

    Sux to be him.

    At least he won't be a repeat offender.

    carma is actually the distant cousine to Karma. Similar but not quite the same. ;)

    The local news said police were a little on edge because they pulled a pic of this kid and his roommates from the interweb, they were all standing around holding various weapons.. what appeared to be an AR-15, a bazooka, and 2 handguns.

    Of course his parents and friends from high school claim he was a good boy and this is an unwarranted allegation and shooting.

    The real problem here is that there is a law in NC that prohibits law enforcement from firing weapons from the outside into a dwelling. Which is apparently what happened, as the coronor claims that the wounds appear to be from bullets that went through interveneing materials (the front door).

    Update, as of yesterday they had indicted one of the deputies on murder 2 charges and cleared the other two deputies. Even had a press conference with the DA for New Hannover County.

    Today.. not so much.

    EDIT: Fixed incorrect county

    Too much bloodshed over the PS3. Does this make 2 people that have been shot for it?
