"The world will soon wake up to the reality that everyone is broke and can collect nothing from the bankrupt, who are owed unlimited amounts by the insolvent, who are attempting to make late payments on a bank holiday in the wrong country, with an unacceptable currency, against defaulted collateral, of which nobody is sure who holds title."

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

The woman who is not pursued sets up the doctrine that pursuit is offensive to her sex, and wants to make it a felony. No genuinely attractive woman has any such desire. - H.L. Mencken, In Defense Of Women

Re: COP ASKS MAN FOR LICENSE, SHOOTS HIM WHEN HE GOES TO GET IT
Usually people pull their license out of their wallet, they don't turn from the cop and go digging for it in their car seat.

I can understand how a cop in high alert mode could think he was going in his car to grab a gun.

Is the cop at fault in this scenario? Yeah, he was quick to judge but I feel the cop's action is within reason.

I have a serious question! Why do cops feel so threatened by you getting out of your vehicle when pulled over.

I was pulled over once new the State Trooper vehicle so I got out but it was a newbie being trained by my friend whom was in the passenger seat. The newbie SHOUTING GET BACK IN THE CAR RETURN TO YOUR VEHICLE WITH HAND ON GUN. So I got back in the car and waited for him to approach the window.

Training. It all comes down to training. The police academy trains officers to think that the whole world is after them. It takes time for the new officers to have good situational awareness and street smarts. Why didn't your friend tell you that?

The cop should have called the vehicle tag in before exiting his own vehicle. Or he should have told the nice citizen to place his hands behind his head and drop to his knees in place, cuff him than figured it out.

This cop has no business in law enforcement.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 63252547


Training and control of the situation, that's why they yell at the top of their lungs to insert control, dominance, fear.

Troopers are usually the more level headed of the public servant along with Sheriffs,they're pretty straight forward and most even educated and personable.

Every law enforcement group has their inexperienced, power hungry nazis. The nazis are being inserted and groomed obviously, after they get back from the middle east, that was their training ground for the USA.

The good ones are bailing because all the bad ones are making them targets of hate and disrespect.

Yes I thought that too he valued his own life rather than the life of bystanders and the guy he pulled over, he could have easily got behind the vehicle and still had the upper hand.

He blew it his whole carrier reputation came down to this one incident.

Holy Fuck dude! Usually?

I used to keep my license in my ash tray in the car cause I didn't like carrying a wallet around. So I deserve to be shot by a screaming cop?

Hmmm.......... you feel strongly both ways, do you?

He was quick to judge AND reasonable too?

There is nothing "reasonable" about shooting an unarmed person who is not attacking you. Did the officer have reason to be concerned for his own safety? Of course. He drew his weapon and pointed it at the driver. He was ready for a confrontation if one was coming, but shooting was not called for.

Why do so many cops value their own lives more than the people who they were hired to serve? Why are so many cops willing to hurt and kill other people if they feel threatened? What did they think they would feel when they took the job?

Good judgement and courage are required to be a good police officer and this officer crossed the line by shooting when it was not required.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 63252547


Did the officer have reason to be concerned for his own safety?

I believe the cop said he was being questioned due to a 'seatbelt violation'. Very unsafe thing to do. That sounds like reason enough. I mean, if the guy doesn't care about his own safety, he's just as likely to put a bullet in the cops head.

Good call by the officer. Thinking ahead.

the victim was hit in the hip and will fully recover and probably receive a nice check to boot. the cop was fired.... maybe some other punishment follows? idk

its very fortunate no one else was hurt and most of all no one died. that this cop loses his career is minor... he needs to be in something else obviously.

that said... this was a mistake, albeit a bad one but still a mistake. there was no mal intent.... nothing for al sharpton to sink his teeth into.

those that hate cops will still hate cops, but i doubt they would want the job. for those quick to judge, maybe this is why some cops are edgy:

Well the trooper gave a direct command and the guy was completely compliant.

The officer could have said get back it your vehicle, or step away from the vehicle and secured the situation before asking the guy to get his license.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 59559032


The police have no obligation to 'protect or serve', in fact, they are committing champtery under color-of-law, by 'drumming' up business for the local traitor BAR known as the county prosecutor office, who drags you into a COMMERCIAL court that is trading for-profit on Dun & Bradstreet.

The POLICE corporation, can ALSO be found trading on Dun & Bradstreet, as a for-profit, private corporation.


South v. Maryland, 59 U.S. (How.) 396, 15 L.Ed.433 (1856) (the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that local law-enforcement had no duty to protect individuals, but only a general duty to enforce the laws.);

Bowers v. Devito, 686 F.2d 616 (7th Cir. 1982) "There is no constitutional right to be protected by the state"

Warren v. District of Columbia (444 A.2d 1, 1981) Official police personnel and the government employing them are not generally liable to victims of criminal acts for failure to provide adequate police protection ... this uniformly accepted rule rests upon the fundamental principle that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any particular citizen .



no duty to protect, or serve.

Revenue collection IS there job.

Period.

Re: COP ASKS MAN FOR LICENSE, SHOOTS HIM WHEN HE GOES TO GET IT
Trigger happy dickweed.

Thank God that trooper was an awful shot and no bystanders were hurt.

Look like he hit him with the first and missed with the two more.
Use your brian, moran!

Re: COP ASKS MAN FOR LICENSE, SHOOTS HIM WHEN HE GOES TO GET IT
Usually people pull their license out of their wallet, they don't turn from the cop and go digging for it in their car seat.

I can understand how a cop in high alert mode could think he was going in his car to grab a gun.

Is the cop at fault in this scenario? Yeah, he was quick to judge but I feel the cop's action is within reason.

The cop should have called the vehicle tag in before exiting his own vehicle. Or he should have told the nice citizen to place his hands behind his head and drop to his knees in place, cuff him than figured it out.

This cop has no business in law enforcement.

"When your so-called religion is purely a political theory of conquest, and deception is one of it's core principles then it strikes me as perfectly sane and reasonable to assume literally everyone who is of such a "religion" to be exactly the same POS who deserves to be treated as the enemy non-stop."
