    Ooooooops. As the saying goes, he won't be doing that again. It's the dog I feel sorry for.

    Just goes to show that old life lesson: Don't steal someone's Playstation 3, or you will die.

    It's not Sony's fault, it's the GTA games. Blame them. When it comes to violence and video games, they're used to it. I bet you the kid was Playing San Andreas on the PS3, and the Cops was playing Vice City Stories on the PSP before all this shit happened.

    Heres a thought; lets just not cooperate with the cops when they're at your door- that always works out to your advantage.

    I'm wondering what really happened. Not answering your door fast enough is not reason to shoot someone to death. Poor doggy....

    To quote my dad: "To make an omelet, you've gotta break a few eggs. Shouldn't have fuckin' stole the PS3's. Do stupid things, cops are gonna get ya."

    My first thought was "Did they blow the fucker's head off?" ....which is pretty terrible.

    No one deserves to die over this, nor should I want to know such a thing.

    What the hell is wrong with this world?!

    I was born in Wilmington, lived there for most of my childhood, and went to college at UNC-Wilmington. Crazy that this happened there...I definitely believe it though. The police in the area are batshit insane.

    Death is an appropriate punishment for stealing a PS3 these days?

    An interesting tidbit about the original buyers of the PS3s from the article I linked:

    So they were "dirty, filthy scalpers" eh? Hell, judging by some of the posts in this thread, some probably think they got what they deserved.

    He didn't deserve to die.

    That said, we don't know the full situation. We know the angle from the friends and family, which is naturally upset.

    I read about this on Digg, and many are saying he almost killed someone. If that's true, then yeah, he did deserve to die.

    "almost killing" someone does not earn you the right to be killed.

    If he presented a threat to the officers, and they were in danger, then they were justified in shooting him.

    But being guilty of a crime - even murder - does not automatically warrant a death sentence.

    (btw - the article posted by PopCulturePooka uses the term "bumps and bruises" to describe the victim - so depends on your definition of "almost killed" and how reliable you find the readers of Digg.com.)

    looks to me like they mistook a Sixxaxis for a gun... glad he wasn't holding Megatron... we'd never see him over here
