Justified, appropriate and

Justified, appropriate and exactly how they are trained to react. Loss of life is always ashame but this man made his own decision to try and escape capture by driving his vehicle towards a deputy aiming a gun at him and the deputies job is to shoot, as he did. Once he tried to run over a deputy is was very clear he would do anything to avoid capture and had no regard for life and again, the deputy shot to STOP the suspect, as he is trained and should do. Those who don't understand would be the same who wouldn't understand if the deputy failed to shoot when he had a chance and instead of this vehicle hitting a tree, ran the stop sign and killed 3 inocent lives - they would then blame the cops for not stoping the vehicle when they had the chance. It is very clear, when you are told to stop and a cop is pointing a weapon at you, you had better stop, if you fail to do so, you are asking for the deputy to shoot which may reslut in your death. To stand up for this criminal in any way, shape or form shows ignorance of the situation and lack of respect for those who put their lives on the line every day to protect us. Thanks to the deputies for their hard work and dedication.

You do the crime you do the

You do the crime you do the time. His time will be spent under ground. Enough said. Money well spent on the CST that RCSD has. Asitisinaug I so agree with you well said.

After seeing this video I now understand why RCSO had to do what they did. My prayers go to the families and officers affected by this tragedy.

He definitely was not

He definitely was not cooperating and brought on himself the consequences. Mentally challenged or under the influence of something whether it be drugs, alcohol or just being a punk. There are multiple threads about this lost soul today. AC, please give it a rest. He does not deserve further comment.

He was always causing troulbe

He was always causing troulbe around here and wasn't suppose to be here no ways. I no most of these cops and they are nice and try hard to help us keep out the bad guys that sell drugs to our kids and give everyone here a bad name all of the time. Managers here are to scared to do anything to keep out the drugs and gangs and makes it bad to live here but with no husband aymore and kids and working 2 jobs it really is tough to get ahead. Elmore could have run over my kids or others and anyways he had dealt with these police many times before so he noes he should stop and he would have just gone to 401 and gotten out again like always. Glad he is gone just going to be scary here for some nights cause people talk trash and live on rumors and dont care about our community like some of us do. Cant our mayor and all make these managers clean up our neighborhoods and keep the bad guys out all of the time.

Did you watch the videos?!

Did you watch the videos?! Unbelievable. He didn't try to run over anyone. He was being smart azz, so what. There were at least 3 cruisers surrounding him. My God, that poor family.

Augusta would be a better

Augusta would be a better place if the tenants of Cherry Hill and the Richmond Summit were transported elsewhere and the locations razed.

Wait. Let me guess. Don't tell me. The grand jury was loaded with racists. Yep, I knew it.
