  • Comments:
    1 kyle was murdered by washoe county sheriff deputys
    1 kyles son,kylan has been born,but will never get to know his daddy.
    1 because wcso riddled kyle with bullets murdering him.
    1 kyle did not show a gun,or shoot at the officers.he opened his door and they killed him.
    1 im sure it haunts them everyday,as it should.the da s office needs to do the right thing,
    1 and prosecute for murder,instead of justifying the shooting.its been almost 7 months,
    1 and the da s office still hasnt received everything to make their decission,but when they do
    1 if its justified,im told it eill go to the supreme court,and that kyle will not die senceless death
    2 in vain,and that something good must come out of this,and his mom will make sure it does.
