(NEWSER) – The Des Moines Register reports on a fatal police shooting this week, and a quote high up in the story from the victim's father pretty much tells the tragic tale: "He took off with my truck," recalls James Comstock. "I call the police, and they kill him. It was over a damn pack of cigarettes. I wouldn’t buy him none. And I lose my son for that." Comstock explains that his 19-year-old son, Tyler, took off with the truck after their argument, and he called police to teach him a lesson. Then things went horribly wrong. A police cruiser tried to pull Tyler over, but he refused to stop. At one point, he even rammed the officer's car.
