thinkbeforeyouwrite, you are right, this is, and should not be a black and white issue. But the Trib is trying very hard to mak it into one. Why else would they print the SAME story almost word for word for three of four days? They change a little bit of info, but, you can almost see where they copied and pasted from one day to the other. The trib is just HOPING a group of black people, or an individual will step up and cry racism. I am NOT saying it is, I am saying the media, both local and national strive to create racist issues even when there is none. It sells papers and gives lazy reporters something to write about.

My educated guess is you'll have nothing to say about anyone who is not African American, the object of your obsession!

As I've said before, cure the ills of your own community of drugs, crime, teen pregnancy & joblessness and let us know how you accomplished it. At that point you'll be qualified to make demands on other ethnic communities...

Here's a flag for you to wave F&G, the Hispanic community seems to have serious inclinations towards holding teen girls captive and often killing their victims.

Anyone would agree this is a much more urgent & serious matter than acknowledging thug behavior in Warren. In Cleveland these people are much worse in every undesirable character trait.

So we look forward to you spending as much time & effort demanding Hispanic leaders speak out against their behaviors as you have against blacks. Otherwise you'll never be taken seriously...

No Crap. Just pointing out the failure of their "leaders" to address their OWN problems.

Not a big deal in 21st century America, seems every week the cops are shooting it out with a suspect.

Probably because a killing in New England is not likely to sell papers or incite violence in Warren. I'm gonna have to agree with you on this MR, the videos & never ending articles are designed to provoke strife & unrest.

This incident is the natural result of pulling a gun on a cop and happens weekly in America. The proper way to quell any potential violence & civil rights crap is to report the story and drop it.

The Tribune wants to force this subject into our faces then prevent any serious attempt to reach across the racial divide to promote peace & civility among angry citizens...

Sure, that's why the Urban League & NAACP "tried" to make it one.

Here we are, 6 days after this incident still waiting for the black "leaders" to condemn the thug lifestyle, reject the baby machine mentality, and denounce the lack of education.

Instead, what do we get from them? Silence. HYPOCRITES they are!!!

This is not a black/white issue, it's simply an issue of someone pointing a gun at a cop, not complying with the officer's orders, and being shot and unfortunately killed. Not racially motivated at all.

This is a classic example of how the media promotes the double standard of blacks killed by whites. No mention anywhere about the 14 yr old black kid in New England who bet a white teacher to death. The media is attempting to encourage the black community to speak out against this white cop. Run the story for a week until someone decides they need to organize a protest and talk about how good of a person this scumbag was. Why is the girl not being charged with having a stolen gun, she was in the car also.

Come on Tribune, did anyone believe this fool actually went out, had a background check to buy this gun legally, really?

You're intentionally riding this story into the ground or attempting to inflame & incite the public for a reason unknown.

This incident is sort of common when you find suspects challenging police with weapons. I believe if the Tribune had reported the incident and let it go, no Civil Rights or racial implication would have entered the equation...

@Fairandequal,for the first time I am in agreement with you.Your 9:25 AM post is spot on.These people decry the behavior of these criminals and then they want every salacious detail to fill their morbid fascination.I bet they watch Nancy Grace also! This is done under the guise of "being informed",when in reality it is nothing but common,low level gossip.National Enquirer is the perfect read for them.Well said F & E!

"Warrenproud Why stop with guns let's quit selling tvs and cars. That will stop people from stealing them and cut way back on crime."

Let's add jewelry, money, bikes, copper pipes, etc., to the list.

I am confused. This convicted criminal, who had two guns, one of which stolen. This convicted criminal who pointed his gun at an officer and was on his way to shoot up a bar and who knows what else along the way? What are we questioning? Thank you to this officer for taking this scum off of our streets. Thank God for this officer for stopping this piece of trash for walking in to II hype and possibly killing many people.God bless this officer. I thank you. You stopped a catastrophe..
