    Title was edited to post a warning.

    It's sad, but I'm kind of wondering why he just walked up to the car and sprayed the pepper spray and walked away like it was nothing.

    I hope they caught the guy. :x

    I can’t believe the officer just walked away with his back to the suspects after using the pepper spray. I hope and pray he survived and was able to go home to his family.

    These thugs should get the death penalty, if officers defending themselves during the arrest don’t kill them.

    EDIT:

    "This video was taken from a dashboard camera on the cruiser of police officer Bruce McKay, who was killed. It shows shots being fired by the suspect who was killed by a passerby."

    I did not see that at first.

    "It shows shots being fired by the suspect who was killed by a passerby."


    It sounds like the suspect was killed by a passerby? If so I would love to shake the hand of the guy that did it.

    From what ive read the cop and suspect had bad blood between them. Apparently an Ex-marine saw the incident, grabbed the fallen officers gun then chased down and put an end to the SOB. All the while the marine had his teenage son w/ him.

    From:http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2007/05/13/feud_turned_deadly_in_nh/

    FRANCONIA, N.H. -- New Hampshire authorities said yesterday that they will not press charges against a former Marine who stepped into a deadly shooting and killed a 24-year-old high school dropout who had moments earlier fatally shot a police officer.

    The former Marine, Gregory W. Floyd, 49, was driving with his son along Route 116 in Franconia on Friday night when he saw Liko Kenney, 24, shoot Franconia Police Corporal Bruce McKay, 48, four times in the torso. After Kenney drove his Toyota Celica over McKay as the officer lay on the ground, Floyd grabbed the officer's service weapon and shot and killed Kenney.

    Authorities said the double shooting was the bloody climax of a long-simmering feud between McKay, a 12-year-veteran of the three-member department, and Kenney, a cousin of World Cup champion skier Bode Miller.

    In 2003, Kenney was convicted of assaulting McKay, authorities said. Kenney had contended that McKay had assaulted him, breaking his jaw and leaving him in a coma, according to Bode Miller's father, Woody.

    "It was a bad mixture waiting to happen," said Connie McKenzie , a nurse who said she had tried to ad minister CPR to McKay on the lawn in front of her 18th-century farmhouse on Route 116. "They hated each other."
    Message Board YOUR VIEW: What do you think of Floyd's actions?

    New Hampshire's attorney general, Kelly A. Ayotte, said Floyd will not face charges because he was justified in using deadly force.

    "Based on the results of the investigation, our conclusion is that Gregory Floyd's actions were justified based upon dangerous circumstances confronted with and efforts to assist McKay," Ayotte said at a news conference in Concord.

    Captain Russell Conte of the New Hampshire State Police condemned the slaying of McKay, a New York native who had a 9-year-old daughter, Courtney, and in June was to marry his fiancée, who has a 14-year-old daughter, Kylea.

    "Something this egregious affects everyone in law enforcement, and it is the ultimate act of defiance for someone to shoot a police officer when he's doing his duties," Conte said.

    The attack unfolded Friday at about 6:30 p.m. after McKay stopped Kenney for speeding on Route 116, a two-lane country road dotted with wooden barns in this rugged, picturesque town 80 miles north of Concord.

    Neighbors said Kenney was driving home from his job at a market in nearby Littleton with a friend, identified by authorities as Caleb Macaulay, 21. Kenney told McKay to "get another officer," and then he sped off, according to Ayotte. McKay gave chase in his cruiser, caught Kenney about a mile and a half down the road, and stopped his car in front of Kenney's car, forcing Kenney to stop. McKay then sprayed Kenney with OC spray, an irritant similar to pepper spray, and backed away from the vehicle, Ayotte saidKenney pulled out a .45-caliber handgun and shot McKay four times. As McKay stumbled across the road, bleeding, Kenney ran his vehicle over the dying officer, Ayotte said.
    Floyd, who had been driving by in a Chevrolet Tahoe with his son, also named Gregory P. Floyd, saw the entire scene, Ayotte said. A video camera in McKay's cruiser also recorded the shooting, Ayotte said.

    The elder Floyd drove his Tahoe into a spot between McKay and Kenney as a shield and told his son, who is in his late teens, to run to the officer's cruiser and radio for help.

    The elder Floyd picked up McKay's gun from the ground and ordered Kenney to drop his weapon. Kenney refused, and Floyd saw Kenney appear to be reloading, Conte said. Floyd then shot and killed Kenney, Conte said.

    The slayings brought to light a deep history of tensions between members of the Kenney family and McKay. In 2003, Kenney had challenged the assault charge, alleging that McKay had assaulted him and broken his jaw, Woody Miller said. But Kenney lost the case -- officials yesterday were unable to say what his punishment was -- because there were no witnesses to corroborate his account, Woody Miller said.
    Message Board YOUR VIEW: What do you think of Floyd's actions?

    After the case, police had agreed that if McKay ever stopped Kenney, Kenney could request that another officer come to the scene, Woody Miller said. Bode Miller had also had confrontations with McKay, and had gone to court in 2005 after McKay ticketed him for driving 83 miles per hour in a 40- mile-per-hour zone. Bode Miller told Sports Illustrated at the time that he wanted "to try to get my fine reduced and to antagonize McKay."

    The shootings reverberated throughout Franconia yesterday, where the American flag outside the white clapboard Town Hall was lowered to half-staff.

    Kenney lived alone in a cabin built by his father in the woodlands off Route 116, just over the border in neighboring Easton. He raised chickens and turkeys and liked to ride his all-terrain vehicle, said his uncle, Bill Kenney.

    The uncle said Kenney " had a rough life, a tough background, but it seemed like he was in the process of changing these past few weeks."

    "I don't know what triggered that, but basically he's the type of guy that's an independent-minded fella. He doesn't buy people telling him what to do, maybe a little stubborn," Bill Kenney said yesterday . "He's basically a good-hearted kid. He'd had some trouble in his past and his upbringing as so many young people do, and he's a Kenney, and it's a family thing. We've been around here for hundreds of years basically . . . he's as native as you can get."

    At Town Hall, about 20 residents gathered yesterday afternoon to mourn the death of McKay.

    "He was just a nice guy," said Sally Small, the town administrative assistant. "Obviously he and Liko Kenney had issues, but there were just as many people who thought he was very professional. He was usually the officer who would prosecute cases at the court. He did his job."

    Robert Thibault, town clerk in Easton and a former selectman, said he knows Floyd because Floyd had stopped into the town offices to have his truck registered. "He seems like a nice guy," said Thibault. "I'm glad somebody did something to try to stop Liko. It was a pretty brave thing to do. Unfortunately it was too late."

    Steven Heath, owner of Franconia Village Store on Main Street, said Floyd walked into his shop yesterday at about 1:30 p.m., looking for copies of local newspapers.

    Floyd was dressed in a T-shirt and shorts and using a cane. "He had a slight limp," Heath said.

    Floyd asked the clerk for the newspapers, Heath said, and when she told him they were all sold out, he replied, "I'm the person who shot the kid."4

    i cant believe that they would even entertain the idea of pressing charges on him.

    check out this load of crap. http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2007/05/20/ex_marine_in_nh_lived_by_his_own_code/

    "Judging from his history of gunplay and boasting about violence, detailed in court records, Gregory W. Floyd was a tinderbox waiting for a spark."

    -witnessing another person being murdered (regarless of LEO status) isnt a muthaF#*$^ing 'spark' as they put it!

    utlimately the marine was the swiftest form of justice. Eye for an eye, on the spot.
    avoiding lengthy legal proceedings and at the very best (depending on the state) 5yrs sitting on death-row paid for by taxes. Otherwise Life in prison paid for again by taxpayers.

    Totally agree GlockMan. I know I would not want people "watching" my brother getting killed. I would not even want it posted on the web. It did not even occur to me until you posted that.

    What I meant in the previous post is that if the above quote is true, then he wouldn't have cared enough to take out the BG. In that quote, they make it sound like he doesn't like law enforcement.
