This cop should be given the key to city by the Mayor on TV. This needs to happen way more often,no wasted tax payer money S on this scum Our sheriff Welington doesn't believe in the carry conceal law, but then again this guy needs to quit double dipping and retire! We need a Sheriff Joe Arrapio in this area!

"Police are investigating the fatal shooting of a would-be robber by an off-duty officer at a North Side business."

No need to investigate. On to the next one! Hopefully more of the same.

Some well intentioned attorney will take the case for this man's family and tell us that there is no death penalty for robbery . He will tell us that if this cop was visible and not hidden the robbery attempt would not have happened . Next we will be told how he was gunned down without a chance to surrender . Will the rights of the subculture supercede the rights of mainstream society ? I predict that we have not heard the end of it .

Right you are Stan. Or that he was a good kid and never in trouble before, or that he was just trying to feed his children. It definitely will be someone else's fault. Kudos to the Officer who went immediately into Protect and Serve mode. This Officer will need all the support he can get as he experiences the trauma of this experience while the rest of us go on with life as usual.

Excellent!

One more felon off the streets and it only cost 50 cents for the bullet!

That's how much I value the life of these jerks who think they can do what they please with the public and the businesses we support.

Let's pray for them at their funeral and go on to the next one, as there are far too many of 'em running the streets.

Next, please...

Wow Vindyak...you are quite wrong. That bullet probably cost 75 cents, with rising prices and all! Just messing with you! Nice job officer, I hope you don't suffer any fallout over this.

For all of you negative human beings, that did not know this man. He had a family that loved him dearly and let us not forget that we all fall short at times. We are so quick to pass judgement on those we do not know. I would like to send my prayers out to Bemo's family. May God have mercy on those who are so heartless and mean.
