titwrench: ox45tallboy: titwrench: The article subby provided does not support his submitted headline. There is no mention of children in the car and they weren't speeding away he was being dragged. It was an intentional hyperbole to get people riled up. It worked 300+ comments on a Sunday is pretty good.

All of the other articles I found with more details had already been submitted.

Sometimes, if you would like to know more about a story, you can Google a few keywords and hit the "News" selection. You can't always have your information spoon-fed to you.

There is no need to be a jerk. Your headline did not match the information provided in the article YOU chose therefore the additional information you provided, taken at face value appeared to be intentionally misguiding. You fell short, own it.

cegorach: Since when does 'hanging on to a car door you opened and not letting go'

translate to

'SOMEONE IS TRYING TO DIRECTLY KILL ME'.

I feel we need some kind of infographic here.


WTF? Do you really think that a car is not a lethal weapon here? Do you not know what a Toyota Tripwire is?

You do realize that if he was hung or caught on the door, and the woman turned, that he could be dragged under the car and ran over, correct? Or the fact that running over someone in reverse, as some articles have claimed, can kill someone with an open car door. Toyota Tripwires kill people, you know.

It doesn't matter what country you're in. If you drag a cop, you're going to get shot. A five minute google search would tell you all you need to know about it.

The sad thing here is that the person who made the cop allegedly fear for his life is not the one that's dead. It's an accomplice who's only crime was petty larceny.

ox45tallboy: Oh, I forgot. This is one of those cool cars that can move sideways.


Well, I suppose she might have rolled the window up on him or grabbed his arm and hit the gas.

I imagine if you were really trying to get away from a cop that was reaching through the window, grabbing him and punching it would be a great way to dissuade him for several minutes, if you broke his arm on the b pillar and dragged a few mm of feet off on the pavement, then rolled him a half dozen times on the dismount.

Hell, I can even see the guy being so pissed off at the people that he'd want to shoot them. If you slugged me, dragged me with your car and got away, I'd be po'd and full of adrenaline. I just don't know if it was good judgement to empty a magazine their way. The DA will think so, though.

As far as the kids go, it was pity that stayed his hand.

It says everywhere the women were black. Who else goes into these stores, in an organized group, and blatantly stuffs their empty, over-sized purses with merchandise? I don't want to over-generalize, but this is a black crime, 100% of the time.

Apparently, subby thinks that a thief attempting to escape in a vehicle dragging subby along as said thief does so is not a threat to his life

Did this car have suicide doors? How does it move forward and drag a person in the door area?

She was in reverse. That's how you normally get out of parking spots. One of the articles mentioned this little tidbit of information.

accelerus: Let's see -- a convicted shoplifter, in the store she was banned from... SHOPLIFTING. Runs over a cop trying to escape after stealing.

Yes, I'm going to go ahead and say that nothing of value was lost in this person being killed. Perhaps she should have followed the law and not stolen (again) Perhaps when a uniformed police officer asks you to stop you don't run him over with your car.

I don't know about you guys - but if you were being run over (and perhaps killed) you'd do everything you could to survive. Who was in the wrong first? The guy trying to do his job and stopping shop lifters... or the ghetto convicted felon?

This was a human piece of garbage who had she gotten away would just do it over and over again. (as she's already proven) It's surprising to me that there are people out there who defend and sometimes endorse this sort of behavior.

Why is it so hard to comprehend that if you lie/cheat/steal/and try to run over police officers - you pretty much deserve whatever you get. A bullet to the face means that shoplifting crime in the future goes down by 1. Society wins.

The next step in this saga is for Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson to pop out of the woodwork and go on and on about how the kids deserve 80 billion dollars because their black mom got caught and paid the ultimate price for her crime. As a side question - I'd love to know why ghetto black people think that the fact they are black gives them the right to break the law with little to no consequence. The fact she's black only does one thing: re-enforce the stereotype. (they exist for a reason you know)

Black, white, yellow, purple - you deserve the same thing. The cop did a good job. Before anyone says "oh the poor kids" well if their mom cared about them in the slightest she'd stop spending so much money on makeup and stop stealing from Walmart.

Call me whatever you like - but I'd love to see more endings like this, after a few months when would be criminals realize: "crap I might die if I steal that DVD or rob that guy" -- crime would decrease at the same time we could purge an undesired element from the realm of the living.

Cubicle Jockey: Tazandra: And also the car was actually going in reverse, according to the police report,

There is a discrepancy with regards to this.

FTA: "Additional reports stated that the deputy then opened the door and commanded the driver to stop. Instead of stopping the car, the woman put it in drive, revving forward and dragging the deputy."


I think the discrepancy will be in the fact that he shot her after the danger from the car had passed. But this is Houston, he will probably get a promotion and be allowed to add a little Sambo kill sticker to his squad car.

fusillade762: But yeah, he doesn't have to obey WM policy, apparently.


Well, cops are their own law anyway.

But what about the security guard that put the shoplifter in Atlanta in a headlock two weeks ago, and somehow the shoplifter wound up dead by the time the cops showed up? He worked for a private security company, not directly for Wal-Mart, but wasn't he still expected to follow Wal-Mart policies regarding shoplifters, and, you know, not kill them?

Extra jobs that cops take on are invariably on a "contract" basis, rather than as an actual employee of the business or event; however, were the cop to take a second job as a contracted truck driver, wouldn't he be expected to follow the company policy as well? (e.g., things like no offensive bumper stickers when hauling trailers with the company logo, no passengers when hauling company-owned freight, mandatory stops every four hours even when not legally required, etc.) How about as a contracted accountant during tax season? What if he were to receive a contract from the city to provide lawn maintenance, could the city require that he wear an orange vest while mowing, even though he is not legally required to do so?

The point is that cop or no, Wal-Mart can dictate policy he is required to follow. Also, since he was being paid by Wal-Mart to be there, Wal-Mart could very well face some liability in a wrongful death suit, especially if it is proven he fired into a vehicle moving away from him.
