I've been a Costco member for well over a decade now. Come to mention it I've never seen a gun there either, or managed to get myself shot. And our cops are armed.

btw, avoid their clip on sunglasses. They're way too flimsy in the middle and end up sitting cockeyed on your glasses.

Kind of hard to believe the cops killed his dad, too. Just tragic.

Where are these reports of 'it happens so often?'


Police shootings happen a lot, and it doesn't require the victim being armed.
Your kidding me right?

Just judging by the amount of threads on this small board has pointed out the amount of violence in the USA.
I dont endorse the cops actions but I certainly understand them

How many threads can you present that support your claim that 'it happens so much?'
What does 'the amount of violence in the USA' have to do with the chance to be the victim of a cop shooting an innocent person?

Given the 'wink', you seem to endorse them.

The amount of violence has a lot to do with why this guy was shot. Its also the reason he carries in the first place.
I certainly agree with who ever called the cops in the first place. Better to be safe than sorry and ironically they DID find a irresponsible gun owner. The man behaved like a baby having his soother taken away from him which lead to his death.
IMO

That is quite ridiculous.

You agree with whoever called the cops in the first place? They are the ones who created the impression of Erik as a dangerous person, when it wasn't valid.

So, you are in agreement with creating a false police report which results in the death of a citizen.

Surprisingly the victim's narcotic addiction has not come up here!?!?

"At the inquest, medical examiners showed that Scott, who suffered from severe back pain, was taking a potentially lethal amount of prescription painkillers."

That right there may have precluded him from legally carrying a concealed weapon?

Nope, they were presenting what they thought to be a threat to all involved. Had the fool simply complied things would have worked out just fine.

Interesting how folks try to prevent incidence without gun fire isnt it.

How have you determined that he was a 'fool?'
How do you know it wasn't the loss prevention person being the 'fool?'

Huh? There wasn't any incident to prevent. The one that CostCo created DID end in gun fire, didn't it.

Erik left with the rest of the customers. It wasn't until he was yelled at that anything of 'incident level' even happened. If Erik was such a threat, how come he wasn't still in the store menacing people with his <gasp> gun?

Really? What do you base that upon?

Frankly, if you feel there was some suicidal penchant, he had access to enough painkillers to do so.

He was on prescription medication specifically for a high level of back pain, not for some addiction or desire for suicide.

He was at CostCo, with his girlfriend, shopping.


I currently have a prescription for oxycodone, and at one time, had enough in me to just about stop urination. Do you diagnose me as having a penchant for suicide, or an addiction?
