^^^^^ what tragedy? The kid took a deadly weapon and tried to kill a cop.

These Karen parents need to get on with their lives. Paying more attention to dead kid then when he was alive is counter productive.

The parents can't admit their own fault in letting the kids mental health get so bad. Now he is just their meal ticket. The parents are disgusting.

He was a nut job that Karen and Ken ignored. Own it!

A lethal weapon? The kid was backing out of his garage in him mom’s minivan. Officer chose to fire indiscriminately versus stepping aside and allowing him to stop the van. He wasn't armed. He had no weapon. He threatened no one. if he had not stopped the car when given a chance, the worst case scenario is that he would have backed onto the quiet cul de sac where multiple cop cars were waiting.

The parents are doing this because they know they were at fault but don’t want to accept it.

It was wrong to kill the young man. We need to have better intervention for people with mental health problems.

Kid is a nutter. There is no help for those with major psychological issues. If they have good parents, those parents set aside their lives and care for the child until their deaths, then the now adult with major mental problems is shipped off to a care facility. It's no life to live.

The police need a really cool net like what Scooby Doo and Shaggy use to capture bad guys.

Scooby and Shaggy never get hurt and they always catch the bad guy.

The FBI has to look into this because Johnson County District Attorney Steve Howe covered up the facts of the case, slow walked the release of this video, and refused to file any charges against another reckless cop that killed a kid.

Remember, Steve Howe is running for reelection and is on the ballot. We can't fire a protected cop, so we need to fire the DA.
