High Point chief defends officers in man's death

HIGH POINT -- The police chief in High Point is defending his officers in the shooting death of a robbery suspect earlier this week. Police Chief Jim Fealy told the group High Point Community Against Violence on Wednesday he is confident the officers who shot 21-year-old Jeremy Antonio Mills on Monday acted properly. The officers have been suspended while the State Bureau of Investigation looks into the shooting, which is standard procedure. The SBI identified them as K.H. Kish and C.C. Wolf. Police say Mills was one of three men who robbed a home and that Mills didn't respond to commands and threatened officers with a handgun. Fealy said it was untrue that Mills was unarmed or that he was shot in the back. Another suspect has been arrested and officers are looking for a third man in the robbery.

I will bet

And I will bet that Mills won't ever rob anybody else ever again. Now that is justice.

I understand he will never

I understand he will never rob again but he did not kill anyone in the robbery, not saying that what he did was right bc it was wrong and all I am saying is he was still someones child and as a parent myself, you can teach your kids right from wrong but when they get older they will tend to make there own judgements and all you can do is pray for your child. I hope you will never have to bury your child and have someone say,"Now thats Justice!"

I forgot

Oops, I forgot, we are supposed to coddle the criminals that prove over and over that they can't live by the rules.

Armed robbery shows some pretty poor "judgment"...

...and refusing to drop your weapon when ordered to by the police is beyond stupid. This young man got exactly what he set himself up for. He stopped being a "child" the moment he decided that criminal activity was a legitimate occupation. One less felon is always a GOOD thing.
