Back to the link between law and money. Know for a fact traffic law enforcemt can be very lucrative to the recepient of the fines. Back in the 80s a Texas Trooper with a good radar stationed in a hick town could bring in a hundred k per year with the bulk of the money going to the county of offense...bridge and road fund maybe. The State got 2.50 tax out of it..then I think it went to five bucks and no telling how much they get now...or how much they can rake in. Thats why the County Commisionsions would buy us all the cool radars we wanted. Some Counties also funrnish machine guns and walkie talkies etc. Now they hated us in some counties and wouldnt buy us nothing. Mainly in S. Texas. lol.

Its been awhile and I am not sure but didn't the perp use smoke bombs/grenades to cause confusion??? How many here would be willing to go into a hot situation when you probably could not see your intended target...Not to mention all of the other people running around and going ballistic...IMHO the officer was between a rock and a hard place..Go in and probably shoot someone that just bumped into you not knowing whom they are...This was a M.C.F. from the git go...
