    smh

    This makes me angry and upset that Nino Brown Jr. didn't care and value his child's life enough to just turn himself in and do the time for his crime(s) so that she may live. God Help Us...smh again

    White Supremacy made the brother hold that child up as a shield to save his worthless soul... Sad is not the word for him, nor those of us who fail to put the blame where it squarely belongs - on Nino Brown, no-account negro...

    Peace!

    I wanted to get a few opinions on this before I share what some others said about this situation.

    Most people empathize with the child. I've heard some say that the police had to do what they had to do since this guy shot at them and one policeman was shot in the shoulder. They also saw the baby as NOT being a hostage. It was this man's child and therefore she was not a hostage.

    But, to shoot 300 bullets. That's ridiculous. Do you guys believe this was over excessive on the policeman's part?

    Since I am looking to be a positive person who thinks positive and acts positive - I will pretend that I never heard this. Although, I will pray for the best of this outcome.

    The Father of the child was shooting at people during the day. Someone called the police...who, in turn, called SWAT. They tried to negotiate with the man but he wasn't listening.

    The man shot at the police as they were trying to get one of his neighbors out of harms way. Three rounds of shots were fired. In the last round, the man walked out of his house shooting at the police with his baby girl in his arms. Some say that he allegedly had her up as a shield and not just in his arms.

    The wife was begging the police not to shoot him. She said he was losing or had lost his business and was in a deep depression.

    I agree with you. They could have shot him somewhere without shooting him and her like that with all those bullets. Someone said that policeman are not the best shooters in the world. So, it probably was one of their bullets that killed the little girl. But, after awhile, you should realize that the man was wounded by someone's bullet. Why keep shooting so many rounds...unless their were a large number of cops their shooting all at the same time.

    Either way, this seems to be excessive force to me.

    In my conversations about this, someone actually had the audacity to say that the baby was better off dead. smh You know that pissed a lot of people off.
