This is ridiculous. Officers fired 8 times because their lives were in "imminent danger"? What a complete and total joke. The man had a small gardening tool. Also, doesn't Downey PD use TASER GUNS?? HELLO????? There was no damn reason they shot him 8 times. Obviously they were shooting to kill, not to stop him with injury only. Shame on those officers for taking that man's life. Taser gun would be much more appropriate and would have not left 2 small boys without a father. I still think his family should SUE.

Never bring a "gardening tool" to a gunfight. Your an idiot, he got what he deserved when you put the public in jeopardy.
