56. Nothing that hasn't been on TV, the net, papers and statements from family,

friends, public and private records. Nothing. You have either not been paying attention to this or are shining us on here. I'm not saying the guy is guilty in the classic sense as there are many defenses that can be made by his lawyers.

You say that:

I use quotation marks in "justify" because before a final investigation I can't assume lethal force being used against a suspect is just. It may have been necessary, I don't know. I'd rather them having a plan b to get the suspects alive.

The lethality has been described to you, they were firing back as they fired at police and threw bombs. The younger brother ran over the older brother with a getaway car. The police were not the only witnesses to these events, an entire neighborhood was looking and listening, as well as live television coverage which I listened to.

Your charging lethal force being used when it was not said to be. It was not even equal force, the police only had guns but the two brothers had guns and more than one kind of explosives. The police were ordered and did bring in the second brother alive. There was order for nor was a standard of lethal force in effect, or the second brother would be dead now. They did have a 'plan b' and used it.

There's nothing we know so far about their motivations and if they planned this or were just executing it.

Their family and friends say differently. More are coming forward. Their family even called law enforcement a few years back because they were suspicious of the older brother getting into radical groups. His youtube page for the last few years spoke of violent jihadism. The younger brother was said to be heavily influenced by him, despite being well liked. He had made failing grades in classes for a few semesters. The older brother was bothered by being refused full citizenship because of a domestic violence charge, and his uncle claiming he was going off the deep end with religion and refusing to take responsiblity for his own failings. If none of those are motivations to you. I've given you more than enough informatiuon, but you will not listen. What was done was not only just but legal, and the brother in custody is being treated with more humanity than he would have been in other countries. I am glad.

EOM.
