SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.A San Bernardino man wielding an 8-foot-long chunk of lumber has been shot to death by a police officer.
Sgt. Dave Dillon says 47-year-old Penimina Sue had threatened his family Wednesday night and also threatened an officer with the piece of wood. The officer tried first to subdue the man with a Taser stun gun but it had no effect.
Dillon says the family called police because Sue was throwing items around the house and threatening to hurt people.

Hey, good thinking slick.
Since California has more combat vets in Iraq and Afghanistan, maybe you'll get your wish and something will happen to them too.
You really ought to keep your stupid ass juvenile comments to yourself.
You are living proof, not all idiots are in California.
I guess you did not see the wink, jerkoff.
I was just joking around too ;)
