It's HIGH TIME that civilian oversight of all police forces become the obligatory norm.
Enough of this investigating and disciplining themselves. Clearly they have shown us that they cannot do it right. And until they begin to measure up, can the suspensions-with-pay attitude. They've taken that too far as well.
Some LEOs need to be fired, period.
It isn't clear whether a shot was actually fired at the officer who initiated the chase.

I live just east of Cleveland. The police officers that started the chase stated these two fired shots out of the window near police headquarters. No gun was ever found in the car or anywhere along the chase route. It's believed that the car backfired.
Why the two ran is anyone's guess. It was a long pursuit that involved several police departments as well as the Highway Patrol.
I'm glad some disciplinary action was taken. That many shots is completely unnecessary. Yet another example of overkill involving out of control law enforcement.

Cops are junk. Only used to intimidate and generate revenue. Good cops are few and far between.
In November, about 60 police vehicles pursued the two suspects in a 25-minute chase spanning three cities

Ya the story says he was shot 23 times and she was shot 24 times. Out of 137 shots 90 of them missed their target, and they were in a school parking lot. I wonder if school was in session?
