Hays police officer shoots, kills suspect after traffic stop

Apparently the people who live next door know the neighborhood better than you and your family.

Hays police officer shoots, kills suspect after traffic stop

Do your own research. Start with "Unarmed people killed by police 2016". I really hope you spend some time and read about some of the people who have been executed without a trial. Just because someone has an interaction with the police doesn't make them a criminal, and the police need to remember that.

Hays police officer shoots, kills suspect after traffic stop

I read these points regarding his disability and the house on KWCH.com. You are correct, and I may be wrong. However, I will not hoist the police up on a pedestal and say that they do no wrong. Staying quiet about a problem does nothing to solve it. Also, you call me a moron for jumping to conclusions, but I think you've already made up your mind about me..

I will agree that my last sentence was not choice.

The dude was unarmed and is now dead. It must have been very scary for the officer when someone didn't respect his authority.

Spending your SWIC money? what's that mean?

Hays police officer shoots, kills suspect after traffic stop

We do not know that. There are many cases of innocent people doing exactly what they're told and still get shot. This is not a black & white issue, it's a power/fear issue.

Bicycle group latest to raise access concerns about K-10/Kasold Drive intersection

The crossing at Waka/27th/K10 is NOT a safe crossing. Let me paint you a picture. There are two stop signs leading to that intersection, both of which are largely ignored. There is a crosswalk at one of those stop signs, but it is not a safe space. Routinely cars come to a rolling stop somewhere in the middle of the crosswalk, well beyond the stop sign, in order to turn and wait at the red light and turn onto K10. Now, K10 is a whole different beast. This is a 65 mph (70 usually) state highway, with a single stop light in the middle of it, though it does thankfully have a pedestrian button and crosswalk. Most people actually accelerate for yellow lights, regardless of who is standing at the marked crosswalk. This is also the place for those who missed the stop sign to also go ahead and make a rolling right turn onto K10, again, regardless of who is standing there, and regardless of whether there's a Walk sign lit or not. We wouldn't need pedestrian bridges if drivers were more attentive. Bicycling around Lawrence has given me a much greater appreciation for how many people are pedestrians, and that I do need to be a more attentive driver, as does everyone!

Hays police officer shoots, kills suspect after traffic stop

I don't think you know the whole store, only what the media has shared with you, which is what the police shared with them. In this day and age, where police tactics and actions are under heavy scrutiny, you want to say something like "if he'd just do whatever he's told, things would be better".. Nowhere in this story does it say the guy was armed.. it just said that he ignored their commands, and they shot him one time, killing him. And what "traffic infraction" did he originally commit, speeding, run a stop sign, fail to signal? I bet it was fail to signal. I guarantee I'll never stop in Hays for anything ever again.

edit: I just read somewhere else that he had a disability, and was shot in front of "a place where those with intellectual disabilities gather to spend time with one another and learn social and life skills."

So in other words.. more trigger-happy policing from America's finest.

20-year-old Lawrence woman stabbed while out for a walk

That's a pretty strange neighborhood to be stabbed in. It's higher-end apartments, a retirement village and a police station. And on top of that, not even a little bit of a description? was she also robbed, or just walked up on and given a poke?
