I hope I'm never in that situation but maybe I can give you a little insight from the legal side of this. Number one, telling the family about the details is definatly cruel and not needed. Number two, you can't just shoot someone. If a bullet is fired there must be an investigation into the officer. Even if there was 100% no chance of her surviving the accident that one bullet would negate that and he could be charged with murder. The reason for this is because at that point the bullet ended her life, not the car accident or resulting fire.
This is just terrible on all sides but you cannot blame the officers at the scene for not shooting her. That's just insane.

She was pinned into the car and the fire department could not get her out, they gave up and stopped trying to save her. There was no saving her, and not one iota of mercy granted to her. So it's better to just let her die screaming in agony begging for her life? That is unacceptable.

Omg how horrible.
They could have told her she died instantly or something besides those details.
That poor woman is going to have that to think about for the rest of her life. I would much rather be lied to then told that someone I loved died in this manner.
How could the fire dept not get her out or put out the fire. They are the FIRE dept?!
I have seen two videos in the recent months of complete strangers saving people from accidents, how did the fire dept not get her out? They are the fire dept. Im confused there. They put house fires out but a car fire they couldnt? They could have put it out and then cut her out..
My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and her bf, because he is going to have to live with this as well.
