    Important details

    I think it is very important to note that the BG, who had been a boxer, had the officer on the ground, was on top of him, pounding his face in.

    Media stories up to now didn't make this clear.

    Perry Stephans is a hero and saved that officer's life.

    Yup. A hero. Great to hear that no charges will be filed against him. Hope they return the pistol as I'm sure it was confiscated for ballistics.

    I agree completely, also, even though the Sheriffs Office will never admit it publicly,(reasons could spawn 20 new threads I'm sure) I hope that at least privately, they give that civilian a big collective THANKS.

    And maybe overlook that next parking ticket.

    The guy had to have been on something to take 5 shots, one adomine/four torso, and keep on going.

    Also, I would be willing to bet that Mr. Stephans had some training under his belt to have hit 100% when that close to the officer.

    Why do we alwyas see this crap in these kinds of stories?

    'He was a successful man trying to make it in life,' Parker, 22, said. 'He always worked hard for what he had; a lot of people love him; it's sad.'

    Other friends said Temple, a 1999 graduate of Glen Oaks High School, was a quiet man.
    He would never even hurt a fly. How could such a bad thing happen to such a good guy?

    Oh...wait...
    According to court records, Temple was on probation for simple battery and simple damage to property at the time of his death.
    Maybe we shouldn't set up the memorial foundation or nominate him for sainthood just yet.

    It's like the gravesite services, all you hear are the good things, not really what a mean SOB the person really was *grin*.

    Something about talking only good about the dead as a form of respect.

    I want them to be honest at my death... tell em who I really was *grin*.

    How long does it take before the toxicology report becomes available? I have a feeling that some of the questions about this case will be answered then.

    The medi could not resist mentioning that the officer had been suspended for a shooting inquiry (they don't make that real clear) over 10 years ago! But spare no space to make the BG's background and pending cases somewhat fuzzy.
    The BG had a temper, was or threatened violencet on more than one occasion (pending cases) and yet it is a tragedy that his lifestyle caught up to him.

    Y'all should've heard what some people said when calling the local talk radio show. Their online poll showed only 8% of the people around here thought that deadly force was NOT needed. 80% for it, and the rest was awaiting more info.

    I heard callers say:
    He should've called 911 instead.
    He should've hit him in the head with the gun and knock him out.
    He had two guns in his car so he was looking for trouble.

    But mostly they thought the bystander did the right thing.

    The latest is a witness came forward, read about it hear:

    Thanks for the story update. If it came out before I'd missed the part about the shooter being in a neck brace.

    He had already been shot once by the officer, and then took several more shots to the body before one to the head did the trick.

    At least the majority had it right, I guess their will always be a select few that will disagree with anything.

    A nun could have probably shot Manson and their would have been some that objected to it.

    Thanks SVT for the update.

    The NAACP is upset with the officer, the investigation and the Baton Rouge Police Department's policies.
