What would happen to me if I shot at a criminal that was fleeing from me? I expect that cop to be held to that standard.

That is not to defend the scum bags in the van. They started the escalation, but firing on them was uncalled for.

I was told this a couple years ago, but I thought only the feds were allowed to shoot at fleeing suspects? Local cops (At least Philly cops) could NOT shoot at a fleeing suspect unless they were shooting at them while running away or trying to run them down with their vehicles (those are just examples, but scenarios similar to that). Shrug


Anyways, except for the idiot shooting at the minivan, I see nothing wrong with everything else.

You would think that the backup cops would have pulled in front and back of the minivan, to prevent it from driving off...AGAIN! But that would take some real police intelligence, of which we all know is non existent these days.

You are still allowed to shoot at fleeing felons if the circumstances are right.

So.... in all your police wisdom... you would pull in front of a van that took off from you? So let me ask you this.... why did the van pull away from you in the first place??

Here is a nice little story about a Pennsylvania officer who had to have his face put back together after he pulled his car in front of a guy who took off from the police....

The Officer who was shot...David Sassa.. pulled his car in front of the driver who took off (for no reason) in order to block him in. The driver shot him in the back of the head with a .30 rifle. The bullet entered the back of his head and exited out the front of his jaw.

That's one of many reasons you don't pull in front of cars..... so they pull away... you can't out run a radio and spike strips.

Actually, you can outrun a radio in the right circumstances. But I digress ...

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.

Regardless of what the mother did, shooting at a van with children in it is 100% total piss-poor, cowardly "police work". That cop wasn't just shooting at the driver, he was shooting at children. Period. His judgement is shit, he should be charged and tried. he's not a cop, he's a fucking moron with a gun.

Good thing they didn't have a dog.
