    If someone shoots a cop in front of me, you can be darn sure I'm gonna drop him. The world needs more cops and less bad guys.
    Gun Control means never having to say "I missed you."

    “No one has a right to take a life, regardless of what happens,” said Beth Starbird, 24, of Boscawen. “He should’ve tried to stop it or called for help.”
    Well, he did stop it. And I have every right to take the life of someone who is trying to take mine. Who says someone else has the right to make mine forfeit. Use your head and think lady, I wonder how she thinks we should have responded to Hitler and Pearl Harbor.

    Kevin Miller, 18, a business major at Plymouth State College, said Floyd couldn’t have known who was at fault in the situation.
    Well Kevin, in modern society if somebody is shooting a uniformed police officer, its usually pretty clear who the bad guy and who the good guy is. Stop watching so many movies, if you always wait to act until you know everything for absolute certain, life and opportunities will pass you by. Could the cop have been an imposter and the guy shooting him an elite counter terrorist unit member, sure, especially in James Bond, but odds are that is not the situation.

    “How do you know the truth?” said Miller, who was out with friends at White Park in
    Concord on Monday. “How does he know what really happened?”

    He Did correctly and as trained the man deserves a comondation.

    And we wonder why 3 people did nothing while a 91 year old man was beaten by a carjacker.

    Those sheeple are people not much younger than I. I'm at a total loss for what the heck is wrong with most of the younger adults today. Maybe its a lack of life experience? I don't know. I don't think I'll ever understand them because I try oh-so hard not to associate with them. Grrrr

    I wonder how she would feel about taking a life if it was her life, or say that of her child, that the BG was about to take? Of course, we all know the answer. Too bad that it takes a life threatening situation for these people to wake up .

    About the difference between a Liberal and a Conservative. The liberal wines and moans when confronted by a deranged killer and blames themselves, the conservative shoots until empty. A Texan shoots until empty, reloads and shoots some more. These winers are moaning and groaning about killing a killer, and how do you know this or that. You go with what you perceive to be the situation and help the defenseless, namely this officer.

    Thumbs down 24 year old girl victim

    People can be real stupid when they are not actually involved. Let the 24 year old girl be in a situation where she was about to be kidnapped or killed and I'll bet she will change her tune real fast. She must have been born to be a victim.

    He did both, did he not?

    Many kudos to him and his son for their bravery and decisiveness

    I've decided long ago that seeing a uniformed officer in distress was enough info to act. I'm a scientific blackjack man and don't play hunches, I play the odds. In this case the odds are overwhelming that the uniformed officer was NOT the Bad guy! Some people need to hand in their membership card that allows them to stay in this country. It is not enough to say, but:

    Thank you for your service, officer Mckay.

    Nice to know there are some who are willing to help PD still. Sounds like some folks are clueless, no matter the circumstances.

    I have read an article on Line of Duty (a police forum) that indicates that Floyd was no angel himself. He had numerous run-ins with the law, and on at least one occasion, verbally threatened to shoot officers in the head. I came away with the impression that he probably has more than one screw loose.

    That being said, I can find no fault whatsoever with what he DID in this instance, killing a murderer who refused to surrender.

    All I'm saying is: Praise what he DID, by all means, but let's not be too hasty about labeling him a hero. He may be no more of a true hero than Travis Bickle in Taxi Driver.....

    As someone who lives in a small town in New Hampshire fairly close to where this happened, I know first hand that this was a hard nosed cop, but a good cop. To him the law was the law, and EVERYONE had to follow it (including himself). I admire Floyd for what he did. Others could have kept on going and avoided the whole situation all together.
