Hey, you know I have several friends who are cops and wouldn't want them to get shot accidentally...
But seriously, okay... number by number the percentage of cops getting shot on calls is very low, particularly when you look at it by the call per
day... Many cops go their entire carer and don't get shot at
last I checked... this wasn't 1909 it's 2009
These guys have choppers... and numbers and bullet proof vests and radios and phones and non lethals
This is poor police work when put into perspective
Who called in a robbery? was the person on the phone...I'M SURE they were, if not did an alarm go off? Is this 99% of the time a reason to draw
why is this cop running alone like rambo instead of waiting on back up
Usually the way this works is they surround a place and give you the option to come out with hands up to AVOID this happening
sooo... why did this happen?
This cop was obviously being a bit too trigger happy and a bit of a Hero... I don't see anything that read of imminent danger to anyone that this guy
ran alone gun drawn...
this zero tolerance always get your man crap doesn't work...
if he pulled up and no one's life was in imminent danger, he shouldn't have charged through with a gun... a chance to surrender, or even get away is
preferable to a gun being used at all... they were there to investigate a possible theft no catch a murderer
no need for this level if no one was in imminent danger...
he never should be running in without giving the suspect a chance to come out peacefully or even run
I saw a kid in cali who stole a truck a few years back...
it was a 20,000 INSURED vehicle, that certainly would have been found a few days later
Total cost 6.7 Million to pursue him, cops, choppers, closing down the highway, lost income, traffic and oh yeah... someone could have died...
For what an Insured vehicle he took?
Those of you who respect cops... really do you Need your loved ones cornering people making them desperate, increasing the odds of conflict as the
response orders they are given
This guy in any normal society should have pulled up Stayed SAFE himself and gotten on the bull horn... "Come Out With Your Hands up"
Call me crazy but that's what I would have done
