    Troopers Begin Investigation Into Deadly Wreck Involving Cop | WNEP.com

    The comments were disabled. They were very interesting. So far he had a bad record of harassment. Killed a woman and injuring her school teacher husband. This was less than five six miles from here. They say his dad is a public official and came to the rescue of his children in the past.

    Same as the ones exposing public school teachers trading sex for grades and molesting students they get shut down right then and there.
    New life as a house husband, major shift in duties.

    Recently a group of a dozen or so police officers opened a hundred rounds of ammo on unarmed suspects in Miami. That is just terrible, yet another example of the Police thinking they are the best. I didn't look into it much passed the article, maybe the guys were highly dangerous, but they were still unarmed.

    Miami cops fired hundreds of rounds, killing unarmed suspects and injuring two officers in crossfire ? RT USA
    being unarmed is not an excuse not to get shot by the police. cops are allowed to shoot unarmed suspects. the key is justification, if the cops can articulate that he/she or the public is in imminent threat, he can shoot to incapacitate. Also, most people think that it is ok to fight the police, specially if the person is unarmed. they think that it is ok to punch a cop in the face thinking that they wont get shot. unfortunately this is farthest from the truth. a decent cop will shoot you if you punch him in the face. the truth is, there is always a gun whenever a person confronts a cop. the cop can justify by way of saying that when he was hit on the face, he felt like he was passing out, before he passes out, he shot the suspect because once unconcious the suspect could easily get the cops gun and shoot the cop or other people.

    cops are not perfect. there are bad cops, stupid cops and there are criminals who wear the uniform and badge too. the good cops, since they are just human beings, they make mistakes too. from time to time, cops get into a shooting situation where two or more cops fire on a suspect that could be armed or unarmed. this is called simpathetic fire, it is not a good shooting however, this happens a lot of times. this can be fixed thru good training.

    In the Miami case, the 2 people were in the car which was unable to move. They were both unarmed. The driver was a suspect in a shooting but not the passenger. 370 rounds or so were fired by the police while the two men were sitting in the car, 50 of which actually struck the car. Hard to excuse it.

    you are absolutely right, no excuse for firing 370 rounds specially coming from a dozen or more cops. that is clearly simpathetic fire, it endangered other cops and the community. this shooting occurred because a cop was either killed or shot by one of the suspect. to add insult, the suspect took the police car. the cops were out for revenge, this is a human trait, not saying it is ok but thats what happens. training is very important in police work...

    The problem is the imminent threat is based on the officers opinion at the time. Once the suspect is shot it's a one sided story. The cop gets the benefit of doubt because no matter what he is always right. His buddies the DA, fellow officers, courts and judges will ALWAYS back him up. The cop knows this and can easily twist the truth to save his own [email protected]@. Why would anyone doubt his story, he's the cop??

    there are places or jurisdictions that do back up their cops, but not all places. In my jurisdiction, as a cop, if you shoot anyone under any circumstance, the case will be heard by the grand jury. the grand jury will decide if the officer should be charged or cleared of the shooting. the "cover up" is not all that good when it comes to real life. its good as a story plot in the movies.
