Adrenaline fueled simians, also known as US police officers, kill Marine in front of his 2 children in California.

"IRVINE, Calif. (KABC) -- An Orange County Sheriff's deputy shot a Marine inside his car while his two young daughters were in the back seat.

The driver's-side window of an SUV was shattered by at least one bullet. The Orange County Sheriff's Dept. says Marine Sergeant Manny Loggins was shot inside his vehicle in front of his 9- and 14-year-old daughters seated in the back.

'Here to explain and not to defend: The perceived threat in the deputy's mind that the girls lives would be in danger if he were allowed to leave,' said Jim Amormino, a spokesman for the sheriff's department.

The department alleges the Loggins, 31, crashed his SUV through a gate at San Clemente High School before 5 a.m. Tuesday. An Orange County Sheriff's deputy parked nearby quickly pulled up and called for backup.

'All during this time the deputy is giving him a set of commands which he is ignoring,' said Amormino.

Investigators allege Loggins then walked to the athletic field where he stayed for up to five minutes. Loggins then returned to his SUV, ignoring the commands of the deputy, who now had his gun drawn.

'Because of the irrational behavior of Mr. Loggins, his failure to obey commands, the threat perceived by the deputy was for the safety of the children,' said Amormino.

Authorities are not saying how many times the deputy fired but confirm Loggins did not have a weapon."

 Quoting: Spitting Into The Wind

The incident comes a week after police shot to death an unarmed teenager in his grandmother's apartment in New York. Police say the 18-year-old was attempting to flush a bag of marijuana down the toilet. The boy was unarmed and the police did not have a warrant to enter the home.
