UC Officer kills carjacking suspect

HPD: Officer fatally shoots carjacker

News Link

Quote:
An undercover Houston police officer shot and killed a man Wednesday that he said tried to carjack him during a surveillance operation at a northwest-side apartment complex.
Quote:
Several people who said they were related to Garza denounced the shooting.

Cynthia Rodriguez denied that her son would carjack anyone. "I have a car. If he wants a car he can borrow mine," she said. "I want justice. I want to know why they shot him seven times."

Other relatives acknowledged Garza had a checkered past but said it was for "nickel and dime stuff."
Shot seven times because that's probably all he had in the mag and as far as the "nickel and dime" stuff anyone want to make a bet an agg. something or other was in there?

Yes, he was a good boy caught in an unfortunate situation. He was in the process of turning his life around and was going to use the car to go to church.

Seven times? It sure took him a long time to fall. All's well that ends well.

From the headline, I thought that University of California cops upgraded from mace/pepper spray to guns!

Darn, but that was a bit of a downer.

Who knows what he did between August and now. He was just hitting his stride until Darwin intervened.

That actually sounds like a 1911 issue. 9mm would probably have been an 18 shot kinda thing...

Why can't I once read a story that the mother apologizes for raising a worthless son?

Weapons charges are now considered 'nickel and dime stuff'?

Sounds like he was on a roll in that short span of two years when he became an adult. Wonder how his juvenile record looks like? Bet we all know the answer to that.
