It's all very confusing as to the details of what happened. I can't say the cop was wrong or right at this point. Do you know what happened, well I don't because I wasn't there. I can tell you a lot of hearsay, but what good would that do.
The thing that we should be doing as human beings is giving our sympathy to the family who lost their child, grandchild, brother, cousin, or even a friend. I feel for the parents of this man the most, as parents we aren't supposed to have to bury our children. Despite whatever may have happened yesterday morning he was still their child. So my deepest sympathy to the family.

My deepest sympathies to all the families involved too but, an armed person charging at two officers with his weapon pointed directly at them? To serve and protect is what they were sworn to do. Ask yourselves what would have happened in that neighborhood had the police not shown up.

The young man who died was a full time college student that had turned his life around and had every reason to live. He had been hanging with a poor choice of friends years ago, cleaned up his act, joined the Army, served in Irag, and was using the education money provided to vets to get a degree. He was familiar with weapons, with police tactics, and knew how to respond to the police. We are hopeful that the complete truth will be revealed as to why he was shot. He did not desreve to die this way. Thank you for your service, Adam. We love and miss you.

Thanks for all your sympathy. I am a relative of Adam's and although I don't know what happened, we must remember that a family has lost a son, so soon after losing their oldest son. Let's not put blame on anyone, but pray for all those involved.

He wasnt charging at anybody. He dropped the gun and they shot him anyways. My bestfriend was his roomate and saw eveything happen. He dropped the gun and stumbled because he was drinking. Adam wouldnt ever hurt anybody. He sserved this country in Irac and he was in school he had everything going for him. R.I.P. u will forever be loved and missed. Take care of Brittany and Jay Are for me.

MUST BE NICE TO JUST HAVE THE ABILITY TO SAY WHATEVER YOU PLEASE AND NOT HAVE TO GET ALL THE FACTS STRAIGHT FIRST.
COPS DONT JUST SHOOT PEOPLE FOR NO REASON. YOU PEOPLE NEED TO LAY OFF THE TELIVISION.

YOU EXPECT US TO BELIEVE THAT THE GALION POLICE JUST GO AROUND SHOOTING PEOPLE?
IF HE WAS SHOT, THEN OBVIOUSLY HE WAS PUTTING SOMEONES LIFE IN DANGER...

you uneducated people need to get your facts straight,
if the man wouldn't have gotten himself intoxicated and pointed a weapon at the police, then he wouldn't have been shot!
put yourself in the officers shoes, they have a responsibility to protect and serve. and that includes protecting themselves as well.

WHAT DO YOU KNOW KELLY? YOU'RE IN WACO TEXAS, GETTING ALL OF YOUR INFO SECOND HAND. YOU NEED TO GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU GO CURSING THE POLICE. IT'S TOUGH BEING COP, EVERYBODY HATES YOU, UNTIL THEY NEED YOU. NOW, ABOUT ADAM YES, IT IS TRAGIC HE IS GONE; BUT HERE'S A COUPLE OF QUICK TIPS FOR ALL YOU KIDDIES OUT THERE:#1 DO NOT WALK AROUND(ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE INTOXICATED) WITH A GUN.#2 DON'T POINT GUNS AT POLICE OFFICERS. THAT OFFICER HAS/HAD EVERY RIGHT TO HOME TO HIS WIFE AND HIS CHILDREN, WHAT WAS HE SUPPOSED TO DO, GET SHOT? YOU WANNA BE GHETTO SMURFS NEED TO SHUT UP AND REALIZE THAT IF WEREN'T FOR THE POLICE YOUR SORRY SELVES WOULD PROBABLY IN A WORLD OF HURT. HULK OUT!

Police officers are not trained to disarm, and less lethal weapons are not to be used in lethal force situations involving firearms. Police officers are trained to neutralize the threat, when they go to the range they train to shoot center mass until there is no threat. So yes as sad as it may sound police officers do train to kill when it becomes necessary. What would you be saying if your friend who is the police officer was put into a situation where he had to make a split second decision to shoot or not? How would you respond to the family and friends of the person in that situation. Put your anger aside for a minute and let the Ohio Bureau of Investigation and Criminal Identification and the Crawford County Sheriff's Office finish their investigation. I am sure all the evidence will be taken to the grand jury for a bill or no bill vote.

My support goes out to the Officers involved. God bless them for responding to this situation to make us all safer. I in fact know the Officer's involved, and can state for FACT they did their job correctly, and by the book. I have sympathy for the life lost, however seek these kind of people help before these incidents. Don't come to the podium after tradgedy. God bless GPD/and the family!

You sound like a really intelligent person. I love the use of foul language for everyone to read. Let's wait until the results of the investigation before you make judgements
