Hope they get every penny. That case was cut and dry 'roid rage cops shooting a guy that could have easily been chimpy. They had no signs of threat, no corroborating calls (though not required), a guy who didn't act suspicious in the slightest, trained cop snipes that could have easily waited for verification of a weapon prior to firing. Instead we're left with cops who've grown up watching shows where baddies are capable of drawing a concealed weapon, training and shooting with amazing precision; baddies that require a shoot first ask later mentality.

I think they should execute the video game player that was in another state, a sore loser, and called into the police and gave the wrong address for the person he was trying to "swat". The intended victim didn't even live there. This could easily happen to anyone. Do you know who lived in your house before you moved there and if they have enemies?
