As far as I've always heard, there are no traffic violations worthy of capital punishment.

If the driver posed a threat to others, he needed to be stopped - automobile disabled, etc. but not death.
It sounds like there were some serious egos that clashed here, and that is a major problem.
Cops can not afford to let their egos surface while on the job. It is not their place to punish. That's the court's job. Can't handle your emotions? Don't be a cop.

It was a simple preemptive strike.

If the "groom" attempted to run the plain clothed officer over that is not a traffic violation it is assault with a deadly weapon. That must be dealt with in the proper manner....you do not write a ticket for assault....do you?

Do not allow the media to lead you down the Jesse Jackson road to Al Sharpton's place.

So the 3 passengers had one hand on the gear selector,one foot on the accelerator,and one hand on the steering wheel ? That's why they were shot as well?

Sounds like a major screw up to me. We had a similar situation of overkill down here not too long ago. In this case it was one black cop vs three white kids that may or may not have payed their bill at an IHOP. The cop emptied his gun at the kids Jeep. killed one and wounded the two others. His excuse was..... I was afraid...................... Duh, he had a gun, and they were driving away. What's to be afraid of? Get the license plate number and let them go.

Woah!! Where are you from?? How do you exactly disable a car?? Shoot at the engine, nope dont work, shoot at a tire, nope that doesnt work either......use magic???WTF??!!!

Sorry but when I work and any officer works, at times we are judge, jury and executioner. We role play all day long to come up with different solutions to problems we MAY be faced with.

If you think you are about to be run over, do you sit and think about it before you react?? We were not there to know what was occuring to that officer before he/she reacted. Too the others, while they may be "innocent" are in the company of a person committing a crime. The intent of the officers Im sure was not, "lets see if we can kill em all" , it was to target the driver who was by all means trying to run over the officer.


And lets talk about emotions shit for brains, we are all HUMAN. We try our best to enforce the law and be as just and equal in all situations but to say emotions, feelings etc dont enter the equation at work you have to be kidding. I have seen many a death, agg battery etc and to say it doesnt bother me in some level would mean that I am inhuman and you wouldnt want that person working the streets that you live on.

My Car WOO HOO...... Now SOLD
New car.... 2001 Jaguar XJR!!!!
