Good God, what the hell is WRONG with these people?

A veteran Orange County sheriff’s deputy feared for the safety of two young girls sitting in a parked car when he shot and killed a Marine sergeant in a dark parking lot near San Clemente High School, authorities said Friday.

Sgt. Manuel Loggins Jr. was shot early Tuesday as he started to get into the SUV where his two daughters -- 9 and 14 -- were sitting, authorities said. Jim Amormino, a spokesman for the department, said the deputy was fearful that Loggins -- who he said appeared to be acting irrationally -- was about to drive off with the girls.
There'd better be a damned good something beyond "I didn't like the way he was acting." Especially with this:
A former commanding officer said Loggins routinely went to the school with his daughters during the early-morning hours to walk the track and read the Bible.

Amormino said Loggins was not armed and that it doesn’t appear the incident was alcohol- or drug-related.

Added: Loggins wife is pregnant.

Is there a bounty on veterans?

Sounds to me like we haven't heard the whole story yet; something is missing here.

Did Harless get a job already?

So, we are afraid that kids will be harmed if he drives off- naturally we pull out the pistol we can't hit the target on out yearly training quals with and open up.

Yeah, I see you point officer Obie.

BTW- I notice nobody mentioned that Loggins was black....
