I am sure that the officer that took the shot felt he had good reason, to keep himself or colleagues or innocent members of the public safe, they are put in an unenviable position,i very much doubt any armed police officer that has ever had to use their weapon comes out of it emotionally unscathed but i for one thank them for the tough job they do and unfortunatly in what seems an ever more dangerous society they will be called on more and more for our protection.

tbh pull a gun on an armed police man and not put it down you get shot, simple as... too many idiots running around with knives and guns on our streets.. im sorry he died but hopefully it will make people think twice at pulling guns on police in the future..

This is the British police we're talking about. Sure, some of them aren't perfect and some make bad decisions, but this isn't America. Police over here wouldn't just shoot someone without good reason.

We don't know all the facts, but the guy had a gun in his car, police had intelligence of this and knew of him, hence armed police. In that split second a decision was made. When it's a matter of life or death, it's extremely naive to assume the police didn't know what they were doing. Like I said, our officers don't go around shooting people for the fun of it.

IF he waved a gun at armed police then totally justified to blow him away.

An MP has appealed for calm after a man was shot dead in a police operation, sparking a protest in West Yorkshire.
Yassar Yaqub, 28, from Huddersfield, was shot when police stopped a car near junction 24 of the M62 motorway on Monday evening.
On Tuesday evening, protesters carrying banners reading "stop the killings" brought traffic to a halt in Bradford.
Police said the protest was largely peaceful but damage was caused to some vehicles, including a police car.

How sad that you feel the need to generate this thread at this precise time.

Anyone might think it is to justify your point of the jewish soldiers execution of the palestinian injured man on the other thread.

He was armed. What would you do? I know, let's see if he shoots me first. There'd be less of an uproar if he actually shot the copper. Ridiculous.

was surprised this wasn't posted yesterday, the headlines have come out today about what he has been up to, and yet his supporters say he was a nice fella. Well nice fellas don't have guns in their cars when they are stopped by the police, don't fly drugs into prisons and no matter what your opinion is of the police you don't wave a gun around when you are stopped by them, allegedly.

He was obviously worried about something. had more CCTV cameras on his house than a small town centre.

The guy was also in court in 2009 for attempted murder so it says a lot about the type of person he was.

Buttt just take into consideration facts that the media have released... whether these are true or not these are all the public have to go off; he was not armed. The gun was found in the vehicle afterwards. So what actually went on to give the police a reason to shoot this man.... he was not reaching for the gun, he did not have it in his hand?

None of us were there and sadly the Media feed us information which creates what they want us to believe, whip up a frenzy. People fall for it.

Lets hope the investigation shows exactly what happened and if indeed the only way out of this situation was for the police to shoot.

As far as I'm aware there aren't enough facts in the public domain to know whether it was a justified shooting or not.

Forgive me if I'm mistaken but what's been stated is that a gun was found in the car, yet we have people in this thread saying he 'waved' the gun at police or that he 'pulled' a gun on police.

Hopefully it turns out to be justified but if the police stopped him, executed him and then found the gun afterwards then that's wrong. I'm not for a moment saying that is what happened but clearly we need more information before we celebrate this event.

if you are up to no good and you have a gun there are two ways its going to go down, one you drop the gun and everyone walks away happy or you don't make it out alive, nothing to do with proven innocence, in a short space of time action needs to be taken and what we don't need is do gooders trying to say other wise or protesting, in a split second he could have short someone and sadly a decision has to be taken which no one involved would have wanted but reality is if you don't have a gun then you wouldn't have been in that situation.

For security. Again, not an offence that carries the death sentence.

By all accounts this man was scum but that doesn't mean he deserved to be shot. Now if he was holding the gun and the police officer's life was in even the smallest danger then it was justified.

All the rational, sane people in this thread who actually respect British values are saying is that the facts aren't in the public domain so it's impossible to know for certain.

who knows but lets be honest with ourselves, the police no matter what some would think will not go around shooting people just for the sake of it. This was a major operation on a known criminal who obviously was known to have guns, and again no matter what we all think they would have given him a chance to put down his weapon and given clear instructions to do so. If the investigation comes out against this I will take it all back which sadly can't be said for the mans death but in the spilt second that a decision has to be taken it had to be taken. If you don't want this to happen, don't carry guns.

Shouldn't be too worried someone would have been assigned their patch within hours, infact there might be another shooting over it.

"...The operation which resulted in Mr Yaqub's death is being investigated by the IPCC after it was referred to the police watchdog by West Yorkshire Police."

From BBC

I guess we'll have to wait for the verdict. From what I've read (limited) - the victim has previous

"In 2010, Mr Yaqub was cleared of attempted murder and a firearms offence after it was alleged he opened fire on a car in Birkby Hall Road, Huddersfield. "
