I can't as that much swearing would get me banned.
However, I find it a great pity the cops shot him before someone had the chance to chop his balls off and feed them to him.

Can we now get serious on their ass or do we have to wait for the next one?
As long as fear doesn't change side, it will keep happening and we will be posting another round of condolences to more innocent victim's families.
Unfortunately, I fear that no one in the western world has the will or testicular fortitude to address the issue seriously.

Sharing feelings of anger and vendetta sentiments...
