Ive had a policeman run over my mailbox in a chase. I had a nice 200 dollar check from it a month later... This guy is NOT shouldering the cost unless his county is backwards and ridiculous.

Holy crap! Now that is a hell of a lot of damage to get one shoplifter armed with a pistol.
To be honest, if you have a gun then you should expect this.
That's exactly the problem. One should expect this---in, say Chechnya.
As a matter of expectation of our government, we should expect better.
How does it work in other developed countries with shoplifters and pistols?
What would Canada do?
What would USA policemen do in 1963? They had pistols and shoplifters then too.

The police must be made to pay for the damage that has been done. It must come out of their budget as the damage shows that much more than reasonable force was used in this case. The police are suppose to use only reasonable force. Most other civilised countries this would be considered excess force and would also be considered dangerous to the public safety.
For all their faults isis shows what happens to policepeople when places go feral. When and not if shtf police in Amerika police can expect similiar treatment to police in Iraq where isis is in control. They are draged out of their homes and executed and groups of locals will not care or and even may support those doing the executing. The only way to avoid this is if police do not use such tactics and instead engage with the community. Confrontactional tactics eventually attract confrontactional approaches from those that you are confrontational with. I am sure that this case could have been resolved with little damage to the house and no endangerment to the community wear this house is located. These thugs will not learn until a lot of them are killed and i dont mean someone using small arms fire or necessariy by engaging them when they are on duty. Police have to remember that they do not live in armed fortresses 24 hours a day and can be attacted any time any where. police are also putting their families in danger by acting this way as those that are violent attract violence to themselves and those around them.

OMFG!!! WTH is wrong with cops nowadays????
Do cops have no conscious? It seems they have no acts of interests for innocent people!
If you studied the history of the state you would realize that aggression is the nature of government.
This isn't anything new.

They should be going after the crooks in DC instead.
