Screw you Pamela Engel for a horribly written article.

I cant tell if there was four people shot or two people shot.

"The pair were shot at 137 times while in their car..."
"One suspect, 30-year-old Malissa Williams, was shot 24 times, and the other, 43-year-old Timothy Russell, was shot 23 times."

So paid administrate suspension?

Bah, I can't spell.  Administrative.

Alcohol is involved.

America is a farking nightmare.  It deserves the worse the world can offer.

60 cops firing only 137 shots is considered a restrained response these days and 47 hits is unheard of marksmanship. Clearly these policemen were well trained and highly disciplined. This is just the price we pay to protect ur freedums from the turrerists.

Pretty sure that means the other 90 bullets missed. These are police officers, after all, not gun enthusiasts or properly trained shooters.

I'll never understand why it takes 60 police vehicles to chase one car. This isn't the Blues Brothers.

Nineteen of the 75 officers facing discipline for offenses ranging from engaging in a chase without permission to providing false information on police reports will have disciplinary hearings and might be suspended temporarily, according to The Plain Dealer.

Fark you!

Ever wonder where these "cop hate" thread come from? Well, here you go.

They're a gang, and gang members stick together when one their own is threatened with a backfiring exhaust.

This is what I don't get about those stupid shootout scenes.  When they shoot up a house/car/etc. you always see them shooting at areas where no freaking would be.  I mean what's the freaking point?

They should be like Zimmerman, one bullet one kill.
 
2013-08-05 07:48:57 AM
Yeah but the victims were on drugs so they were bad people. Drugs are against the law.

There was an officer like that once, Officer Riggs. His motto: one shot, one kill. But then he got too old for this shiat. Time just has a way of getting away from us.

No, you're a halftard.  Being "shot at" and "shot" are quite different.

Only imperial stormtroopers are so precise.

They tried to run them over with the car.
 
2013-08-05 07:52:39 AM
Just because they were found unarmed doesn't mean they never were.. But hey, let's not let simple things like that stop us from raging at cops in the morning.

FTA:  "The officers being disciplined for violating police protocol won't lose their jobs and did not partake in the gunfight at the end of the chase, but they did have a role in the pursuit."

Situation is still farked up and quite possibly the actual shooters will get off lightly as well, but that doesn't make subby's headline any less misleading.

I'm convinced that the some mods submit and green their own stuff.  This one shows a preference for "..." stuff.  Just look at the page.  Or maybe the real submitters are subconsciously bending their will to conform... quite possible.

I don't see anything there that justifies her being shot 24 times.

These people were scum and deserved what they got when they ran from the police and the proceeded to attempt to run the officers over with their car.

I'm tried of these people making my city look bad.

Sucks to be them, but don't get all hopped up on drugs and run from the cops for hours, putting everyone's lives at risk, but nobody is saying anything about that. What if they had hit your wife and children while running from the cops in their car? And killed them? You probably wouldn't mind the cops firing them up then.

What if the cops hit my wife and children while chasing a car that backfired? What if my wife and kids were shot by the cops bullets? What if it turns out that YOU killed my wife and kids?

This.... communication in an ongoing dangerous situation is never going to be perfect. doesnt matter if they had a gun, when they took off they opened their selves up to the possibility of something like this happening

"innocent couple"?

Innocent people are not high on cocaine, driving on an suspended license, and running from the police.

Well, if you are given the death penalty for a crime you didn't commit, the correct response isn't "yeah but he wasn't innocent because he had a suspended license"

If you try to rob a gas station and get shot no one biatches at the clerk. This isn't much different. They caused a dangerous and cchaotic situation, which did not work out well for them.

That's because his partner fondled Officer Sugar Tits and they both got suspended.

"One suspect, 30-year-old Malissa Williams, was shot 24 times, and the other, 43-year-old Timothy Russell, was shot 23 times


137 rounds - 47 rounds that hit people = 90 rounds missed.
Unless there was a dog.
 
2013-08-05 08:05:48 AM
Not stopping is what escalated the situation.  Not excusing the police here, but you know when they get together and the adrenaline is pumping they take on a pack mentality and feed off each other.

When that happens people die, it's that simple

They were innocent of the action they were shot to death for.

Innocent people don't file false information on official documents either, but they seem to keep getting away with it.
Remember that the next time a cop decides to fark up your day just for the fun of it.
 
2013-08-05 08:07:52 AM
Nah, subby. According to the article it was shot at.  You seem to think they're all Dirty Hairy level of sniping ability with a pistol.

FTFA: The pair were shot at 137 times while in their car, parked in a middle school parking lot. No officers were injured in what police called a full blown-out" firefight.

Please excuse me, but how the fark can you have a "firefight" with unarmed persons?  Please tell us, we're eager to hear your explanation.

I will agree with this. Id like to hear more details on what false information was provided.

That story, if accurate and true, is just WOW!  Are we to understand that the most dangerous and hard to control criminals are those who are unarmed?  And, that they must be shot and killed for the betterment of society?  Seriously, their response is almost like 'roid rage.

/this is a lesson, kids, that things never end well for you when you try to run from the cops
//just do what the nice officer says, and you might end up in jail, but you'll at least live to see another day
///there's also a video of a guy who refused to follow a female officer's command, and after he called her a "biatch," she shot him dead
