That is the 3rd person Avery County Officers have shot in like the last 3 months. The first one they killed (Mentally handicapped) and these two. They will pop a cap in your ___ quickly. Is this good or bad?

This isn't Dukes of Hazzard, or even Mayberry for that matter. it's real life, with real consequences.

Ok first of all i can say what i want about the situation,I'm his sister. First of all yes all three people have families! why was all the bullets from behind and at an angle. surely if someone is trying to run over you, you would first of all. have enough sense to move out of the way and not stand there like a retard. and start shooting right away duh! why was my brother shot all to hell seems like Avery co needs to figure out how to control thier trigger happy selves! I know there is two sides to this story, and thats fine only one side is the true side, and you know what my brother might be alot of things but a lier isn't one of them,and think about it why would the higher athority be investigating the cops instead of my brother if they didn't think something was going on here? yeah Avery co is being investigated not my brother. makes you wonder what all the so called cops are hiding and not saying to cover thier asses! And also my brother is no threat,no danger,and not a problem. If he was so DANGEROUS why wasn't there cops at the hospital with him. that happened what saturday night? well it's monday and still no Avery co cops even showed up. yeah a real good batch of pigs you got there. see he isn't a threat they knew he wasn't if my brother would have tryied to run over a cop or 2, i think they would have been at the hospital making sure noone got hurt. but they didn't so you shut up about your Daddy ok! i don't care who he is in my eyes he is nothing but a trigger happy, untrained, son of a bitch who needs to go to anger management classes, and why do cops always bring more cops into the situation. hey if your scard don't be a cop if all you know how to do is shoot someone, Don't be a cop its rediculous just cause you have a gun, and you think you have a little bit of power doesn't mean you can do what you want. if that would have been someone out of the blue shooting someone like that it would attempted murder right? well the same thing should happen to cops your no different ok, so get off your high horse, calm down, and get your nose out of the air. your no better then my brother actually, he is better than you. you can't just go around shooting people he didnt have a weapon and neither did his girlfriend. she was innocent and you all still shot her! how stupid are you? let me ask you a question. how would you feel to get woke up, go to the hospital and see your brother covered in bullet holes. EVERYWHERE!!!!! let me tell you it's not fun. the guy who shot my brother can burn in hell. Yeah YOUR FATHER is a danger not my brother. dangerous cops they are all dangerous think about it. they carry guns, they think they have athority, and they almost all are assholes. those things mixed together make a deadly combination! think about it!!!!!!!!! O yeah and everytime i ever needed a cop they were never around so no i dont need a cop i take things into my own hands like people should anyways. the only reason people use cops is cause they are scard, dont be scard take action!!!!!! so no i dont need cops they are just a bunch of pigs!!!!!!!!!!11

maybe the officer was trying to get out of the way of your brother. did you ever think of that. that would explain why the gun shot wounds were at an angel. i thak you mom for being so nice about the officer in the county. but take it from someone who know the sbi didn't tell anyone what they thought. they are there is a sbi agent for everyone invalved and they question the subjects then go back to the DA and tell what there person said. then the DA decide if someone is in the wrong. so she doesnt; know anything. your brother maybe a good person but so is the cop. he has 4 kids and 1 grandson. what would you do if there was a car coming at you after it had stop. i would have shot him to. i guess you think that the officer should had escorted him through the county. if he didn't do anything wrong then why was he running from the law. he was not running from the guy who shot him he was running from two different officer. the guy who shot him was just trying to get him stopped before he killed someone. from what i have heard he stop and the officer was trying to get him to get out of the car when he decided that he was going to try to run him over. just try to think what you would have done. the one thing that i can say that your mother said is that no one is ever going to no the truth because things happen so fast.

YOU GO KATRINA, HE IS LIKE A LITTLE BROTHER TO ME, AND I KNOW HE WOULD NEVER INTENTIALLY TRY TO HURT ANYONE. HE IS THE MOST CARING ,RESPECTFUL AND TRUTHFUL PERSON YOU WILL EVER MEET.HE IS THE TYPE OF PERSON THAT WILL ADMIT HIS MISTAKES AND OWN UP TO HIS FAULTS. PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THE SITUATION AND THE TRUTH BEFORE RUNNING THEIR MOUTH. THEIR IS TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY. SO ALL YOU PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO ARE ONE SIDED AND CANT ACCEPT THE FACT THAT EVERYTHING YOU HEAR ISNT ALWAYS THE TRUTH NEED TO WAKE THE HELL UP !! WAIT UNTIL IT IS SOMEONE IN YOUR FAMILY THAT YOU CARE ABOUT GETTING SCREWED OVER, THEN YOU WILL SEE HOW IT FEELS, AND WILL THEN AND ONLY THEN HAVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE YOUR NONSENSE , SCREWED UP COMMENTS ABOUT SOMEBODY THAT YOU DONT EVEN KNOW! SO UNTIL THEN ALL YOU PEOPLE OUT THERE THAT WANNA RUN YOUR MOUTH , HAVE RESPECT AND GET YOUR STORY STRAIGHT FIRST. ALL YOU ALL JUST REMEMBER HE HAS A FAMILY THAT LOVES HIM VERY MUCH . AND WE ALL STAND TOGETHER AS ONE, AND WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH THE TOUGH GET GOING. WE WILL STAND BY HIM TILL THIS IS OVER AND THE TRUTH IS KNOWN, AND THEN WE EXPECT APPOLOGIES FROM ALL YOU KNOW IT ALLS THAT WANNA RUN YOUR MOUTH AND MAKE YOUR STUPID LITTLE COMMENTS.

I must really be odd. If I ever attempted to hurt a cop, my family would swear that I am not related to them. Let alone get on this forum and rant and rave about my goodness.

But then, my Mother no longer knows who she is anyways and my sisters have always thought I was sent home with the wrong set of parents, so no new news there.

And free, you are killing me.(laughing)

I am very sorry about what happened to your brother and his passenger. But if I were in Officer Shraders position I would have responded the same way. Your brother obviously did not have good intentions when he tried to run over the officer. I would not have any sympathy for someone who was trying to run me over. And I would not just step out of the way and give them another chance to run over me. I would shoot and not think twice about it. Your brother might not be a liar but he is apparently a thief and possibly a drug addict. The car he was driving was reported stolen and he was charged with possession of methamphetamines and possession of drug paraphernalia. And the higher authority you refer to, which by the way is known as the SBI, always investigates shootings involving law enforcement officers. In your eyes the cop who shot your brother may be “a trigger happy, untrained, son of a bitch who needs to go to anger management classes” but in my eyes he is a hero and I am glad he stopped your brother before he seriously hurt someone.

Yeah YOUR FATHER is a danger not my brother. dangerous cops they are all dangerous think about it. they carry guns, they think they have athority, and they almost all are assholes.
Lets just point out a few points for the blatantly ignorant
1. The State Bureau of Investigation investigates every single officer involved shooting in the state of North Carolina. It keeps the cops in check, and you can bet your ass before they squeeze off that first round they are aware an investigation will follow. They won't just pop off at anything.
2. An automobile is a two-ton weapon. Take a hit from a moving car and tell me the effect it as on you. My guess is you would change your statement about him not having a weapon.
3. A law-enforcement officer's job is not to run away from criminals. It is the citizen's duty to obey the laws. So your statement about them needing to run from your brother is just ridiculous.
Katrina, your brother is a moron. I have no sympathy for him.
YOUR brother put the officer into the situation to take action. The officer wasn't out looking to shoot someone. YOUR brother made the decision to attempt to run through a police roadblock with his car(a weapon).
So Katrina, stop all this whining about the "pigs" because it really doesn't help your credibility when you can't structure a proper sentence or use halfway decent grammar.

I cant believe the judgemental people putting comments on this board. Your lack of empathy disgusts me- owe i forgot, most of you have never made any mistakes. People like you are what allow this violence and negativity perpetuate itself. So apparently it is okay too shoot (with the intent to kill) someone for stealing a car or for doing drugs (or because you are not quite intelligent enough or too lazy to move out of the way of a speeding car driven by some "drug crazed madman".

I realize this happened a couple years ago.

The officer was in the right for shooting this man, as well as the other two that were shot. The officers do not take pleasure in shooting people it is hard to sleep to think that your bullet killed a man. The subject in the truck was a danger to every motorist on the road that night as well as to the officers. The officers tried to peacefully check out the situation with out going to extremes and the driver stupidly chose to turn it into a chase. Officer Shrader is a hero because he put his life on the line to protect the lives of all the other people who might have been on the road that night. And FYI the truck swerved toward the officer, a direct attempt to kill him.

That low-life Derek Roberts wasn't part of this escapade, was he? I'd like to know how many of you would like to get their hands on him? He's a grown man running scared because of all of the people he harrassed while he was the "narcotics officer." Pathetic.
