I\'ll go ahead and reply for \"Peace Officer,\" partly because almost anyone with common sense could.

: First of all Larry\'s last name isn\'t even spelled right people should
: know how the name\'s are spelled before they write about them.

Alvarado, Alvaredo, an insignificant difference in spelling for this type of news report.

: Secondly who the hell gave the right to this so called peace officer
: to determine when it was time to shoot Larry,

Um...your friend Larry?

An inmate who ignored orders to stop stabbing another prisoner was shot to death by a correctional officer on Tuesday, officials at the Corcoran Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and Prison said.
Inmates Lawrence Alvarado and Jose Garcia attacked Ricardo Acosta in the prison\'s maximum security housing unit with homemade weapons, refusing to pull back when ordered by officers or when targeted by foam rounds, officials said.
Alvarado, 24, was then hit with a rifle shot, and taken to a community hospital. He died about an hour later.

: why wasn\'t the other
: guy shot, what was this guard in on it
: was he told to shoot Larry?

While the report doesn\'t explain exactly why only one of the two attackers was shot, common sense suggests that either

a). the officer shot at both attackers but one of the attackers was hit
b). the second attacker either quit shortly before the officer fired, or shortly after, making any further shooting unnecessary

Ever seen that kind of situation go down?

Are you suggesting that if you saw two men stabbing another with a knife...you would side with the stabbers?

Then using your own logic, WHAT GIVES YOU THE RIGHT TO LET RICARDO ACOSTA BE MURDERED?!!! He does have family that cares about him and loves him, and now you\'re angry because he wasn\'t stabbed to death???

NOBODY!!!

(lol, that\'s a flourish, only).

: Just because he was in there for a long time doesn\'t give
: NOBODY!!!!!! the right to take his life. He does have family that
: cares about him and loves him, now this guard has taken him from our
: family and no matter what happens we will never get him back but
: hopefully this peace officer (if that\'s what you want to call him)
: gets what he deserves and they find him guilty of murder because
: that\'s what it was MURDER!!!!

No it wasn\'t murder, it\'s evidently what is called \"justifiable homicide.\"

If someone is trying to stab you to death,

and you have a gun

Go ahead and shoot him (or her) right in the head.
