    Well HAG we'll never know if he did indeed point the nozzle at them, but if he was drunk and doing something STUPID then the officers responded correctly!

    Being "stupid" (sitting on a porch with a water sprayer is stupid?) means you deserve to be killed by police?

    I look at it this way: If it was you or me we would be in jail for this shoot.
    Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”
    And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

    Was a hose attached to the water nozzle? I doesn't sound like it, so how was he watering anything?

    Still doesn't exactly sound like a good shoot from what we know.
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Don't know how old this story is, but I read a follow up report that the family received a 6.5 million dollar jury award in a civil trial against the Long Beach PD. Must not of just happened in the last day or so.

    In the dark and using a two hand pistol grip, I doubt if either of us would be able to tell if it was water nozzle or a pistol he was pointing at us. We're talking a microsecond judgement call! From what I've read the victim was not watering the plants at the time! Additionally the 911 caller set him up for the fall by describing a small handgun he was pointing in a threatening manner. Why else would the PD be carrying a shotgun and well as their service pistols! Listen to the 911 call!

    I've seen kids point toy guns at people and end up shot. Making a Furtive movement is cause for action, i.e., reaching in a glove box which may or may not contain a gun during a traffic stop!

    I sorry the guy got killed, but it all goes back to the Darwin Awards!
