Death wish Boro fan killed by cops

Recommended Posts

A DEBT-ridden soccer fan was shot dead by cops in a siege yesterday  after being pushed over the edge by seeing his beloved Middlesbrough lose.

Keith Richards, 47, fired at officers with a crossbow in what is thought to have been “suicide by copâ€Â.

Did he need to be killed? could they not of shot him in the arm or leg to disable him so they could arrest him?

Terrible story - he was obviously suffering from depression and needed help not shooting yes he was wrong doing what he did but like you say David surely they could of shot him in the leg - very helpful comment from the supt saying they are lethal weapons.

I don't think the Police should be given the right to shoot and kill any member of the public, a shot in the leg or arm would disable most criminals enough to surrender Or the bean bag gun which simply winds you.

The guy obviously has issues that he needed help with he didn't deserve to die.
