  • Passer by shoots man who killed officer during stop.. WITH THE OFFICERS GUN

    I am just wondering if this is going to "smooth over" for the passer by.

    I am glad he was there, and I agree with what he did, but will this go "the right way" when it comes to the media and the suspects family?

    Opinions?

    Here is the link to the story.

      Sounds jusitifed to me from what the article states. But no doubt there will probably be a civil suit against the passer-by.

        Cousin of Ski Champion Bode Miller Killed After Shooting Cop

        http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,271853,00.html

        FRANCONIA, N.H. —

        A cousin of skiing star Bode Miller fatally shot and ran over a police officer, then was killed by a passer-by who grabbed the officer's gun.

        Liko Kenney shot Cpl. Bruce McKay four times and ran over him after a traffic stop Friday evening, state Attorney General Kelly Ayotte said. Gregory Floyd, who was driving by with his son, grabbed McKay's gun and shot Kenney when he refused to put his gun down, Ayotte said.

        The 24-year-old Kenney was convicted of assaulting McKay and resisting arrest in 2003
        . Ayotte had no other details of that previous incident between the men, and rejected suggestions the officer should have let someone else handle the traffic stop given his history with the driver.

        Officials said McKay pulled Kenney over for speeding on Route 116. Kenney took off, and McKay pursued him for about 1 1/2 miles before pulling in front of Kenney's car and pushing it off the road.

        The officer used pepper spray on Kenney and his passenger and then turned around and was shot, Ayotte said Saturday at a news conference in Concord. Soon after, Floyd arrived and confronted Kenney while his son called for help using the officer's radio. Authorities said Floyd was justified in shooting Kenney.

        The 48-year-old McKay was a 12-year veteran of the Franconia Police Department.

        "It really tears at the fabric of the community and the fabric of the state," said Gov. John Lynch, who visited the town of about 900 residents Saturday as people paid their respects and brought flowers to a police station.

        Bode Miller's father, Woody Miller, said there was a history of animosity between the officer and his nephew.

        "They had a long relationship," said Miller, who operates an international tennis camp in nearby Easton. "There's been physical altercations between them before in the course of being arrested."

        Miller said Kenney, who lived next door to him, didn't have a steady job, but often took work cutting firewood and picking fiddlehead ferns, a wild green that grows in the region and is considered a delicacy.

        Bode Miller, who once bailed his cousin out of jail, was on his way home to Franconia, his father said. Miller was in Park City, Utah, this week, meeting with officials of the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association. At that meeting, the former Olympic medalist told officials he was cutting his ties with the U.S. team.

        The shooting happened near this town in theWhite Mountain National Forest, popular with skiers and tourists who visited the Old Man of the Mountain, a rock formation and the state's symbol that crumbled into pieces four years ago.

          I think he was entirely justified, and I read the article on CNN and it seemed to definitely be in favor of the passer-by. While he may be opening himself to a civil suit, I would imagine that it wouldn't stand up as he could claim self-defense. I may be wrong though as I am not overly familiar with the law in that manner.

          Either way, the guy got what he had coming.

            A citizen who did a great thing. One more dead dirtbag in the world. I am sorry to hear of the officer. To his family may they find peace, and God rest his soul. I see others points about a civil suit but I hope the guy beats it if it comes to that. I sure hope there are enough intelligent people/judges in this world to see that what this guy did was a great thing, he came to the aid of a slain officer and exacted the revenge the dirtbag deserved. I only hope this piece of garbage dirtbag suffered when he died.

                  The sad thing is that it was over a traffic violation and they new each other.

                  My question is why is it worth this when the officer knew who it was.

                    This POS Kenney got what he deserved! The world is a better place without him and a sadder place for the loss of McKay. I hope they give Gregory Floyd and hos son awards for heroism, they deserve it!
                    RIP BROTHER.

                      Hopefully the Good Samaritan will articulate well why he shot the p o s.

                      RIP McKay.

                        I'm sure he will have plenty of help articulating that.

                            What happened is a tragic loss, a 15-year veteran of the NH Police, and the shooter, 24, who recently had begun a new job, and had a "great future" according to his boss. My prayers are with both families.

                            A more detailed account of events by the Union Leader is here http://www.unionleader.com/article.a...8-299d170dd507

                            And here is the Concord Monitor http://www.concordmonitor.com/apps/p...TORY/705130419

                            If Kenney, the shooter, really did flee the traffic stop at a slow pace, as his passenger said, and continued to operate his vehicle at a controlled speed, to me it seems excessive to physically disable the car and pepper spray both the driver and passenger. No one is ever justified in killing someone, but why risk unnecessarily provoking someone in this way? Did it have to escalate that far?

                              I thought that I would link these two threads together since they are talking about the same individuals. I hope the civilian does not get charged civilly, either. From reading the article in this thread it appears that some of the members of the Miller family are a bunch of morons as far as obeying the law is concerned. Isn't 83 mph in a 40 mph considered reckless driving? Who did he think he was, Mr. Ski Celebrity? Idiot sounds more like it. As for Kenney, I feel he got what what he deserved. I was taught from a very young age that you don't disobey a command from a LEO, ever. But my dad was a Reserve LEO back in the 1960's so go figure.
