    Beaumont Man Killed Trying to Rob Detective in North Texas

    Del.icio.us | Digg | Print Story | E-Mail Story | Font Size GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (AP) - A man was shot and killed after
    robbing and getting into a gun battle with a man who turned out to
    be a plainclothes detective, authorities said.
    The Grand Prairie detective, whose name was not released, had
    finished an undercover operation involving businesses selling
    alcohol to minors Thursday at about 11:20 p.m.
    An armed man identified as Stephen T. Richards, 22, of Beaumont,
    approached the officer, unaware of who he was, said detective John
    Brimmer. Richards ordered him to place his wallet on top of the car
    and to lie face down on the seat, Brimmer said.
    After the officer was able to grab his own gun and get out of
    the car, shots were exchanged between the two men, and Richards
    kept shooting as the detective chased him into a nearby motel
    breezeway, Brimmer said.
    Although the detective ordered Richards to stop and drop his
    weapon, saying he was a police officer, the suspect ran toward a
    parked sport utility vehicle as the gunfire continued, Brimmer
    said. Then Richards ran around the corner of a building and
    confronted the detective, who fatally shot him.
    Brimmer said police later found the detective's wallet in
    Richards' pocket.
    A woman had driven Richards to the hotel in the SUV but fled
    during the gun battle and called police. It's unclear if the woman
    faces any charges. The SUV was reported stolen from Beaumont.
    The officer will be placed on paid leave, but it does not appear
    that he violated any laws or department rules, Brimmer said.
    It was the second police shooting in as many days in North
    Texas.
    After Fort Worth police responded to a call about an apparent
    suicidal man Wednesday, Officer T.S. O'Brien fatally shot Clarence
    McNeill, 68, after he raised his gun, said Lt. Dan Draper. As
    officers went toward the porch to check on McNeill, another officer
    shot a dog that lunged at them, but the dog survived and was taken
    to an emergency veterinary clinic, Draper said.
    The initial investigation shows that the shooting appeared
    justified, said Fort Worth police Lt. Paul Henderson.

    You guys have no environmental awareness.

    Do you realize how much global warming was created by firing off that much gun powder and how much lead was released? The good news is that over the next 50 years (BG estimated life span), his carbon footprint will be recovered by recycling his remains and the lack of oxygen he breathes. Somebody alert AlGore.

    Another one bites the dust,
    Another one bites the dust.
    And another one's gone,
    And another one's gone,
    Another one bites the dust.
    Hey Hey!!

    Well, I guess he should not have been in the area. Give that officer another box of ammo and a 10% pay raise.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.
