strangeluck: I'm pro law enforcement, but this guy, hope he goes to prison for a long, long time.
Too Pretty For Prison: How in the fark do you fire "over 41 bullets"?
BarkingUnicorn: The shooting started after the chase ended with the cops ramming the guy's truck, pinning it in a driveway. After the shooting stopped, a K-9 dragged the guy out of the truck. Witness says cops deleted her cell phone pics and vids.
oryx: Was he fired for being a bad shot? (3 for 41).
lucksi: And how much time did the brave officer who fired ~41 shots spend in jail so far? Let me guess, none whatsoever, just like the normal people would, right?
wildcardjack: I watched Grosse Pointe Blank yesterday and I thought the "firing randomly in the direction of your target" was sorta funny. I might have 17 round magazines but I know better than to shoot at something I don't have a good visual lock on.
Shotgun Justice: Depending on his weapon, that's either 2 or 3 reloads./Impressive reload speed//Not so impressive aim///Hope he rots in jail, because this is murder
Hillbilly Jim: Hound hitter.
hardinparamedic: lucksi: And how much time did the brave officer who fired ~41 shots spend in jail so far? Let me guess, none whatsoever, just like the normal people would, right?So what you're saying is, this man didn't deserve the due process and investigation that is constitutionally guaranteed to every other citizen of the United States?Because, that would kind of make you a hypocrite, wouldn't it?
lucksi: No, the normal person would be arrested first (with a LOT of force since he just killed someone), spend some nights in jail and maybe, just maybe, get out on bail. So, was the cop arrested? Was he in jail?
lack of warmth: Or is it department's policy to not say anything at scene for witnesses to pick up and go straight to cover up mode and let IAD and lawyers straighten it out later.
hardinparamedic: Or, to put it another way, anyone involved in a line of duty shooting should automatically be booked, thrown into jail, and charged with a crime before all the facts of the case are established. Something something, fifth amendment due process.
fredklein: What, exactly, would happen to a non-cop who shot and killed someone? He'd be arrested, thrown in jail.... We're just asking why this doesn't apply to cops.
hardinparamedic: Regular people who have what is ostensibly a justified shooting in self defense get arrested and thrown in jail as a matter of policy until the investigation is completed and the DA is given the results of it?
untaken_name: FTFA: "Officer Tuter did feel in fear for his life and was justified in firing his weapon"It's hard not to be scared of people who were driving away from you, and whom you've just crashed your patrol car into.
