another criminal assaulting a police officer, and they want the cop charged??
I don't know all the details, but let's go with what we know so far. A
girl Steals a car, hits a cop, and another cop fires a gun at the car
potentially at the driver and the driver (a 16 year old car thief) is killed?
Now a group of "residents" want charges filed against the officers who
took part in the apprehension of the car thief who was killed after injuring and
potentially killing a police officer trying to stop the car? This makes
perfect sense to me if I lived in the wild west, and the "deputies" were
thugs who shot and killed the Maria Garcia the inn-keeper's daughter who
was walking home from a barn stomp, because she was being escorted home
innocently after 10:00 p.m. Then this would make perfect sense to me, charge the
deputies of course, but this girl STOLE a car, hit an officer and was still
going! What did she think would happen? The goal was to stop the car, get the
driver! Unfortunately, they got the driver, who may have had run in's
before with police?
Glad we have police officers doing their jobs, and protecting the people.
People have got to change their attitude. When the people stand up for people
who do wrong, steal a car and the try to hit and maybe kill a policeman, they
are really saying, it is right to steal, etc. If they were doing good things and
being law abiding people they would have no reason for the police to be after
them. We are getting to the point that people are saying: the wrong is right and
the right is wrong. We are getting out of step. They think every one is out of
step but them. I can do the wrong things and don't have to pay a penalty.
"A house divided cannot stand" Abraham LincolnWe as a country
better come together, our police system is under attack, not that they are all
free of faults, but they have a tough job, someone in a stolen car comes at me
and my family and tries to run us down, if I had a cc permit and a gun on me, I
would do just as this officer did. Since the presidential election 2008 we
have steadily gone down hill on relations between the minorities and the police,
but worse yet over the last twenty years, we have made a victim society,
everyone seems to sense they are a victim of something, it is time for some
tough love in this country, enough of this pandering of the minorities,just obey
the law ands if you don't, you pay the consequences'
I'm trying to look at all sides here. It certainly depends on the
circumstances but if I felt my life was in danger, firing at the driver is a
natural response. What would be the proper response by law enforcement
Really?! She hit and injured a police officer with a stolen car. The cop
shouldn't be charged. He was protecting his life. Good grief, do something
better with your time people, instead of defending violent criminals. I hear
Volunteers of America, Colorado is looking for volunteers.
