Texas cop shoots, kills 93-year-old woman outside her home

How much more are we prepared to accept?

Thanks ObamaCare death squads.

/had to be said.
 
2014-05-09 07:25:31 AM
Jeez, they shot and killed an innocent guy in the car next to the criminal.  I can't believe they can just walk away from something like that.  If I was randomly shot by a police officer without having even been suspected of a crime I would want my family to be able to sue or something.

What a bunch of responsible gun owners.
 
2014-05-09 07:26:48 AM
Well, that's.. something.
 
2014-05-09 07:27:43 AM
Hey man, nice shot.

This is why we need armed militias.  To protect us from police officers.
/but then who would protect us from the armed militias?
 
2014-05-09 07:30:58 AM
To protect and serve.

Or is it to protect their own asses and serve their own egos?

Where is cruiser twelve when you need him?

Someone explain to me again how cops are the only people who are responsible enough to own guns?
 
2014-05-09 07:40:22 AM
Training - they farking needed it.

Too bad some innocent is dead because a department wanted to save some cash. I hope they are sued for so much they have to dissolve the department.

Listen, you can rag on the cops all you want, but if I am ever wedged between a tree an a post in a blue volvo in the middle of the night, I know who I can depend on.

Wait...

I want to point out that this article is one of the most responsibly written pieces of journalism I've seen in years.

It manages to rationally and calmly explain the facts at hand without directly blaming any particular person for the events, but still letting it be clear that something seriously farked up happened and needs to be corrected.

I think I see the problem.  Based on that picture, they've hired animated police officers.

They're not incompetent, they're just drawn that way...
 
2014-05-09 07:48:26 AM
When you hire a bunch of filthy animals and give them guns and immunity, this is what happens.

fusillade762: Texas cop shoots, kills 93-year-old woman outside her home

According to Fark progressivesTM cops are the only ones who should be allowed to have guns. The segment of the population, next to thug gangstas, with perhaps the worse marksmanship skills are cops..

Fark ProgressivesTM:

Somebody breaking into your home-call a cop

Somebody raping your wife -call a cop

Hoodie wearing thug bashing your head into a sidewalk-call a cop.


Fark ProgressivesTM- "cops suck"
 
2014-05-09 07:51:19 AM
If only there had been a good guy with a gun there.
 
2014-05-09 07:52:52 AM
Guess we know where all the ammo went.

Glad to know if a guy crashes into my house, my kids were be dodging bullets.

377 bullets. What the holy oh crap.
 
2014-05-09 07:54:44 AM
Give people power and no consequences and this is what you get.

Enjoy your coming police state America, land of the `our cops are free to do what the hell they like`
 
2014-05-09 07:55:30 AM
Of course, the estates of the two dead men might now be liable for damages for the two cops who were shot by their co-workers.

It's so true, I've never known a conservative gun nut that reveres police. Even the conservative gun nuts that are the majority of the police force.
 
2014-05-09 07:56:38 AM
Ya' know, p!ssing that many bullets around the landscape, it might save them ammunition to spend more time on the pistol range.

Nope, nobody should have the guns. Cops do suck, there is a good example here in TFA that backs up both my views.

Why call the cops? They don`t do anything even when they do turn up (well after the criminal has gone) guns or not.
 
2014-05-09 07:59:54 AM
If only there was some kind of laws or set of rules that the cops would respect, obey and protect;
this wouldn't have turned out like it did.
You know, like each individual cop had something in their memory that would guide their actions....

Next up;
poison gas used on neighborhoods, because there are actually no rules or laws... none.
 
2014-05-09 08:00:40 AM
In all fairness, the guy had shot a cop earlier that night, however it does seem warranted that the officers involved undergo some type of gun training.

Also, why no Florida tag.
 
2014-05-09 08:00:42 AM
Lots of shady business, and an extreme misuse of force, but to be fair: the fact that the suspect was unarmed at the time of the shooting isn't relevant when they had every reason to believe otherwise.
He had just committed an armed robbery and also shot someone. You'd have to be psychic to have known he ditched the gun somewhere.

Again, not defending the cops mad minute. But let's not pretend the guy in the car was just a normal customer.

Yeah, I've never heard of civilian gun owners killing any innocents.

Dubya's_Coke_Dealer: Why do you people hate on cops just because they shoot innocent people and dogs?



Because they didn't even have the decency to plant weapons on the victims. If I die in a hail of gunfire. I want to be known as armed and dangerous.

Also, I want them to drag me out of any Volvo I am in and put me on something manly, like a Harley, or maybe a tractor.

That doesn't really change anything, they were determined to execute him, not arrest him.

Farking lunatics.

In other news,

According to Germany's Der Spiegel, German police shot only 85 bullets in all of 2011, a stark reminder that not every country is as gun-crazy as the U.S. of A. As Boing Boing translates, most of those shots weren't even aimed anyone: "49 warning shots, 36 shots on suspects. 15 persons were injured, 6 were killed."

I was thinking this too.

doglover: And people want to make these jokers the ONLY ones with access to firearms.


Nope, nice looking strawman though. Nobody should have the guns as standard. Then the two guys in the car would either have been taken out by the armed response unit who don`t go crazy every time there is a chance to be a cowboy or they would have come out of the car and been arrested.

I know people like reading about `hails of bullets` but there is a better way you know.

If you are not a complete idiot you will realise there is another choice apart from the false dichotomy of  a world of guns with only you not having one and everybody having guns with no restriction...

Why am I bothering to reply to doglover?
 
2014-05-09 08:05:04 AM
Really guys, you do something about this now or you're never going to be able to.

Laobaojun: Ya' know, p!ssing that many bullets around the landscape, it might save them ammunition to spend more time on the pistol range.


They were aiming at the car hoping to execute whoever was inside and they succeeded.

This is how terrorists operate in Pakistan only they don't use as many bullets despite having automatic weapons.

He hadn't "just" robbed the store and shot someone.  He had time to go home, switch cars, pick up a friend and drive around.  The cops overreacted.  This happens because quite often they don't get in situations like this so when they do they get amped up and take things too far.

A dozen or so "good guys with guns" could have gotten the tally of innocent deaths up to double digits.
