  • Police Kill Man Who Threatened to Kill Baby He Took Hostage

    KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — A police officer shot and killed a man who took his girlfriend's infant son hostage and threatened to kill him with a knife, authorities said.

    Jesse Lee Johnson told officers surrounding the home Friday in this town near the California state line that he was drunk, high on methamphetamine and ready to kill the 11-month-old boy.

    The officer shot him in the head after the man walked outside the home holding a knife to the baby's throat, said Klamath County District Attorney Ed Caleb.

    Johnson, 27, died at a hospital. The baby was not hurt, Caleb said.

    The name of the officer was not immediately released.

    Police said Johnson was acting erratically when he grabbed the baby, and that negotiations with him lasted about 30 minutes before the shooting.

    It was not immediately clear if others were in the house.

      Good for him. I wonder if the GF is all up in arms and saying, "I don't know why they shot Jesse!! He wasn't gonna hurt nobody!"

        But, but, he just had a knife!

        No, seriously. One good shoot. I'd buy that officer a beer anytime.

                Thank goodness it ended well.

You honor them by holding them in memory and, in law enforcement, proceeding in vigilant, ethical police work. You honor this country or deceased soldiers or whatever you're honoring when you salute a flag by thinking, feeling, and continuing a life of freedom.

                    In a way, yes.

                    It still didn't end well, though. That poor kid is going to need a lot of therapy.

                      Therapy?! The kid is 11 months old. He probably already forgot about it.

                      How could it have ended any better?

                      I would rather have years of therapy then be dead.

                          Exactly. Get that kid something with Spiderman and he's good. I might have felt SOME remorse for the asshat if he had taken an adult hostage. Take a kid, you deserve to die, quickly.

                          That shooter, is now my idol.

                            So far the top gun of 2007! Now as for the baby get him some new toys that make noise and have shiny things on it and hopefully he'll be just fine.
                            GREAT SHOOTING.
