Nude, undarmed student shot and killed by campus officer

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/49349728

Apparently the student had consumed alcohol and LSD for a prior music event. He banged on the police station window or something like that, and the officer called for backup before going outside.

After the student pursued the officer for a distance, the officer shot and fatally wounded the student in the chest.

The teen allegedly assaulted two other students previous to the shooting.

Again, the student was nude and completely unarmed.

I think a simple warning shot would've done the trick, but maybe that's why I'm not in the police academy

With all this recent face eating shit, I think shooting a naked man running at you without a care in the world is pretty much self defense against zombies.

Why did he have to be shot? Surely, a police officer who has been trained would be able to take a nude guy out.

LSD doesn't make people go all whacky. That's what really confuses me.

But to the main point: Even if I were under the influence, I think the sound of a close-range gunshot alone would halt me. I know I'm not the only one thinking it, but it was just unnecessary to shoot the kid.

Probably linked to improper training. Every officer should know that.

I wish this happened more often.

Not just the tackling of naked people, but the less-fatal handling of situations, as well.

5'7" 135lbs is not a threatening size. Naked! The hell? This guy shouldn't have a gun on his belt.

To all of you suggesting they fire a warning shot. Really? Are you kidding me?

I don't see why they couldn't just tackle the guy though. It's not like they've been specifically trained to handle potentially dangerous people or anything.

Wow, I didn't know campus cops carried guns. I guess pretty soon mall cops will have them too.

Either way, the kid sounds like an idiot. Darwinism at work.
