The 2 robbers started a gunfight at a jewelry store in Coral Gables (Miami) famed Miracle Mile with at least one bullet striking City Hall across the street. They exchanged fire with the owner without any lives lost, yet. They fled in a Uhaul and then spotted a UPS driver, who they then carjacked and kept as a hostage. They got to Miramar while police pursued them in cars and air. The UPS truck hit bumper to bumper traffic. In the video you will see an outside shot fired at the UPS truck in the middle of all of the civilians followed by an inaccurate barrage of gunfire by the police. This resulted in the death of the 2 suspects as well as a 2 civilians.
Why are the police firing on a blocked in vehicle in the middle of civilians?

This is disgusting and every single officer involved needs to be fired and possibly charged with manslaughter. They have birds in the sky and everything. A hostage was involved, the best course of action would be to follow from a distance AND SPECIFICALLY not engage in heavy civilian traffic. It was a UPS truck for Christ sake. It wasn't out running a heli.
This vehicle could have been followed once it got off the expressway. Why risk all of those innocent civilians lives?
