    Cornelius Harrison was my brother. My brother wasnt volient. He stole but he was never physical. I am sorry that the cop was hurt in the altercation but he still shouldnt have taken my brother's life. Justice was not served in the right way. My brother was shot and killed over $50 worth of material stuff. He did not deserve to die over that. I dont care what you all say but I knew my brother and I know he wouldnt have tried to kill that cop. I feel if they were not rustling for the gun then no life should have been lost. That cop shot my brother in the side of his head. Cornelius had to been running away from him. My brother leaves behind a four year old daughter who does not understand where her daddy is and just says he is in heaven but she does not understand why she will never get to see her daddy again. Just like I dont understand why I will never get to see my brother again. If you can prevent someone from losing a life then why wouldnt you do that? Its unfair

    Sad when children go wrong. His dad was a good man and the most generous person. Maybe this will impact others on the wrong path.

    I love my kids to death, however if they chose to go down the wrong road, they will not lay up in my house running from the law, you must pay for what you do no matter how much I love you. Why are some parents so stupid to just let them in, so maybe they will be the next one's robbed and shot. I don't think so not up in here as the saying goes.

    I have always said: our men n women in the military, teachers, cops and fireman don't get enough respect, praise, or money for what they do. Thank God for them all.

    As long as career criminals are allowed to get out and roam our streets..we have to hope the law enforcement officers are able to keep up..good luck! Add to this the REAL poor state of the economy and it's a recipe for disaster.

    HE SHOULD BE GIVEN A METAL OF HONOR. Too many people in blue are being killed these days because the criminals are protected and have more rights than the men/women in blue. Instead of paid leave, give the whole family a vacation for 2 weeks in Orlando. Other officers take note, we will support you and understand how dangerous your job is these days. Earn respect back for the men/women in blue. Jurors these days will find it difficult to convict you of protecting your life and others-----take them off the streets for good.

    I am sure it was not easy for the officer to take a life, but thank God he saved his own.
