    As long as our justice system allows convicted criminals to be set free, tragic stories like this will happen again and again. The mother knew what her son was involved in. For her to be "surprised" is a bunch of crap. My condolences to Mr. Roger Marshall.

    "Davis said Murry’s shooting has prompted criminal and internal police investigations, which are ongoing."
    Uhhhmmmm....WHY? Put that cop back on the street and let him do his job, which was what he did on Tuesday. Actually, I should say "....which is what he did WELL on Tuesday."

    No black woman thinks their children ever do wrong. None of them want to take responsibility. She is obviously one of those black women that doesn't have a man to provide a stable, nurturing, loving, learning environment to raise the kids right. This piece of cr*p was out trying to do things to "fit in" and to impress the other people because he didn't have any other positive male role model in his life. Maybe if the little son of a bi*ch had had a father in his life, he wouldn't have been such a sh*tbag. I am glad his reign of terror is over. Anyone with that many felonies on their rap sheet is nothing but a complete piece of sh*t. He deserves to be taken out of society!!

    "After spending nearly two months in the Pulaski County jail, Murry was sentenced to three years of probation and was released from the lockup.

    “What judge released that criminal who killed my friend?” Marshall asked Wednesday."

    Very good question (but one might also ask about a prosecutor who made such a deal). Had this punk been in prison where he belonged, he wouldn't have had the opportunity to break in to this home, or to kill one man and seriously wound another. And he would probably still be alive.

    The "legal justice system" fails us again.

    I feel sorry for Mitchell... Your kid is your kid and you love them in spite of the bad choices they sometimes make. I'm just sorry Mr. Posen had to pay the price for that bad choice. I commend Officer McDaniel for a job well done. Criminals have to learn that "stop" means "stop or get shot". My condolences to Mr. Marshall.

    For heaven's's not only young black men who rob and kill. Anyone who breaks and enters with a firearm and shoots the resident or anyone who is intervening is very bad news, regardless of their race, or the race of the victims. It's too bad the man who was killed did not heed his friend's warning to merely watch, monitor movements, and report to the police. Our jails and prisons have too many folks in them for drug possession charges, IMO. Domestic batterers and robbers are released so we can imprison drug users. It does not serve us well.

    His mother thinks he made "poor choices" and was trying to "fit inn", is robbing and killing someone a "poor choice" and trying to "fit in".
    Tell me I misunderstood this!!!!!
