    Thoughts on LE shooting

    Had an officer involved shooting tonight on one of our freeways. Not a lot of info coming out yet but from what they've said it seems a little strange. Wonder what y'all think.

    This is what the suits said at the press conference:

    Officer did a traffic stop on a white GMC truck. During that stop the officer decided he was going to impound the truck. Went to his car and started doing the paperwork involved. At one point the suspect re-entered his vehicle and produced a rifle (caliber not determined). The suspect fired on the officer who was able to radio "officer in need of assistance/shots fired". Officers from multiple agencies responded and a gun battle ensued with many many rounds fired. 6 officers in the shoot out, suspect killed, 1 officer killed, 2 others injured.

    Here's what seems odd to me:

    1. Caliber not determined? They know what it was why not release that info?

    2. Why was the suspect not handcuffed if the car was being impounded.

    3. Why was the truck not checked for weapons?

    Wondering what you guys think.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    The suits, you never know what the hell they're thinking.
    Complacency is one of the top cop killers.
    It's draining to stay on high alert all the time, but these days you have to.

    Not a lot to go on here. Seems prudent that you secure the driver first if your impounding his vehicle. Whet ever the caliber of rifle he used I am sure it is a evil looking black one that needs to be banned.

    Crappy Journalism, Crappy Police Work and Crappy Press Conference.

    Why would Highway Patrol Impound a Vehicle without Arresting the driver/owner? This BS where Law Enforcement gives a half-ass press conference and leaves out details that are either obvious or easily obtained leaves me with the impression that they do not want to provide the truth...yet they continue this ridiculous practice of a Press Conference.

    Looks like an AK if that's the guy shooting in the video at 2 minutes in. Could have been shooting some cheap ammo that doesn't have the numbers stamped on the bottom. Cops don't know enough about guns to look at a shell and tell what it is??

    It doesn't fit the gun-control narrative.

    It will be a great day when our schools have all the money they need, and politicians have to start selling candy bars and holding car washes to finance their campaigns.

    'Crappy" implies carelessness and/or apathy. "Doesn't fit the narrative" means willful intent not to release the information.

    Very poor police work and procedures. Gun was an AK variant based on the mag shape. Could have been one of many calibers.

    Very sorry to hear about the loss of life with the LEO.

    But here’s the side story. The shooter was a convicted felon. In gun controlled CA what was he doing with a rifle? Based on CA law and their talking heads, this shouldn’t have happened.

    A great example of what WILL happen with gun control on the law abiding citizens though. The criminals never follow laws and will always have guns. Period.

    This is what I was getting at. At the time I posted the thread most of this info wasn't available to the public. I thought they were covering something up. I'm still not sure if his name was released. If not I'm wondering if hes an illegal?
