He was to the side of the vehicle, it clearly says he opened the door, commanded them to stop, however it was in drive and she attempted to flee. He then fired.


Correct. He may have had his center of gravity towards the door. As the vehicle began to move forward, he fell forward. Hate to tell you, but most cars have a set of back tires on a rear axle. Had he fell down and his leg (or more) positioned under the car, he could be killed. Therefore, he is in fear of his life and has every right to discharge his weapon.

Since when is possibly running someone over with a car a "petty" crime?


They simply read the headline and just jump in with their bleeding heart in hand?

I don't see how shooting at the car would prevent him from being hurt though. It's not like the driver will stop driving all of a sudden even if you hit him ...

Along with the people who assumed the Woman was trying to run the Officer over and not simply escape?

A medal? For murdering a shoplifter in front of her children? Why not make the penalty for every single crime the death sentence?

Think about it very well. I'm sure you did break the law at least once in your life. Most people did even if they don't want to admit it.

Our society should have evolved passed one that seeks death as a punishment for the most petty of crimes. If it has not, please, remove yourself from it so that we can start to evolve.


I would like that, but we can't afford to not kill each other yet, we don't have enough room and resources for peace.

Here's the simple answer:

She was shot because her having stepped on the gas, placed the officer in a position where he was in fear for his life and discharged his weapon. period. The events that led up to this split second cause/effect are completely irrelevant.

Where you people come up with she was shot ONLY because she shoplifted is completely beyond all logic.


Thank you for clarifying for people who can't read in here.

I just love people here. Cop get shot, it's ok, Cop trying to defend himself from being run over, he is a moron. Can't wait for more pathetic excuses where cop will get blamed even more.

This woman is a moron who trying to run a police officer over, endangered childrens life, shoplifting, and etc... and somehow she is an "innocent" in this story. She deserve it.

If she would just give up and surrender normally, none of this would happen.

Where does it say she tried to run him over? It said he opened her door, and she tried to drive away. He then shot her. The only part where it says that was someone else at the police station saying he might have feared for his life.

"but the car was placed in drive and moved forward,"

So you automatically assumed that she would just drove away without hitting him?

I guess I'll have to see the video. I just don't see how you're in danger of being hit by a car when you've just opened its door. But, even if you are in danger, I don't see how shooting the driver is going stop you from being hit when you're so close to the car already. Getting out of harm's way would be much more effective.

I think if the off-duty officer would have just pointed his weapon at the shoplifter would have sufficed. A shoplifter wouldn't risk their life over a few items they ganked.

He'd just opened the door, so he was at the side of the car, you assume she was going to make another pass and run him over?
