Wow, sounds like a bunch of scumbags to me. Maybe the cop here got what was coming then? Maybe he was one of those guys, daddy of a girl hired a PI and tracked him down, and he had his revenge?

All I know for sure, is cops need to clean ranks, or it is only going to get worse. God/allah/whatever forbid a cop does that to anyone in my family. It will be a bad day for that PD, they will not know what hit them. Me and my crazy uncles who trained me would do some serious damage, if we had a good reason lol.

Of course.
There was a gun store in the back of the police car and the handcuffed Mr. Boys filled out the federal paperwork and went through the background check, then went through the waiting period before he killed the cop.
What new gun law would you suggest that would have prevented this incident?

One less criminal on the street, looks like they arrested this waste of resources.

"Travis Boys, 33, arrested in shooting death of Officer Daryle Holloway. "

So it wasn't the officers gun that was used.

Unless they don't want to be the case and are just covering that up.

I hadn't seen anything about his gun being taken, no. The least I saw was "we don't believe it was his gun."

To be honest, if they wanted to spin that angle of it I would think they'd go the other direction.

"This guy is so evil he beat the officer into submission and took his gun, then killed him with it." In the grand scheme of things, something being missed in a search is a lesser problem for Boys than getting the cop's gun from him.

I think anyway.

i do not think you can prove that.

you seriously need a sense of humor

Seems the suspect broke his cuffs and still had them on

how does a cop miss a .40 caliber when searching a suspect

2 weapons were found in the vehicle a .38 used in the battery charge then a .40 that shot the officer

Is there video or audio recording of the event? How did he get out of the cruiser? Was there not a full cage in the back? How did he remove the cuffs? Theres suspicious lack of details here.

Good point.

I agree that most likely it was human error and a very costly one.

My sense of humor is just fine, thanks. Hearing the same old cop-bashing crap when there's not one aspect of the event to support it isn't hysterical to me, though. Perhaps I'll start making pithy remarks about unarmed folks when they get gunned down. That'll be a riot, won't it?

You're right, I can't prove that. It's a hypothesis. Which is why I said "I think."

What I CAN prove is that Boys was taken into custody and not shot. What YOU can't prove is that he wasn't shot because a cop's gun jammed.

Humor and such

Bingo! Give that man a cigar!
I heard a radio report of this incident in which someone (didn't catch the name or rank) from NOPD was speaking and said something to the effect of, "The suspect was able to remove his cuffs because he is double-jointed, then he got through an opening in the cage and retrieved the officer's gun and shot him, then escaped."
None of that sounded right to me....then later I heard another official commenting saying, "He obtained a gun that was in the vehicle." which didn't sound right either.
But your explanation of a sloppy search makes the most sense---at least to me. The perp was armed when he was arrested, something that was overlooked by whoever searched him. While he was in the back of the car, he was able to get to the gun in his pocket or sock or whatever and shot the driver then escaped.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the officer's family and to the guy/s who didn't find the weapon.

Sorry, I meant to say Give that man a cheesecake!

Now, a question that has arisen in our household: Do seat belt laws apply to prisoners being transported? I've just finished reading the Louisiana seat belt statues (as found on the net) and can find no exemption for cop cars. Perhaps there are regs applying to cop cars that were written later?
From some of the random videos of people being placed in cop cars, (Roof the most recent) it appears that the suspects were indeed being belted in.

In most if not all states officers are required to secure the seatbelt of the detainee because the minute you are in their custody they have a professional obligation to ensure your safety and well being. However as I said earlier though handcuffs can be slipped out of if they are not closed tightly enough around your wrist if you have small wrists, hands and a flexible thumb.

How many people can break cuffs?


How many people with his build could break the cuffs?


Givin that and the gun was missed which is extremly rare and cuffs broken which is even more rare givin the conditions i am chalking this up to super natural forces at work and say that it was no fault of arresting officer and that it would have happened to any officer in that set of circumstances.

Point being is that suspect may not have ever crossed the barrier to pull this off and i do not think that police are in any more danger of 150 pound suspects breaking cuffs any more than before.

The way it happened is indeed the most unlikely scenerio.

'Being transported' implies he was being taken from one jail to another place...perhaps someone on the inside slipped him the gun to make his escape with?
