All she had to do was stop the car, surrender to law enforcement, and face the consequences of her actions.

No deaths, and she'd have been brought to justice.


So you're saying because the Woman broke the law, the Cop was allowed to handle it in anyway he wanted and it'd be ok?

At a point, you have to wonder if you are just trolling intentionally or if you really don't get it.... everyone else is thinking the same thing by now.

It has nothing to do with "she broke the law so the cop can do what he wants" as has already been pointed out to you, it has to do with him defending himself because of the actions of the suspects.

Yes I disagree with you so it must be trolling. I've seen people sent to prison for less than what this Cop did.

Just ****ing wow.

The cop handled it correctly because SHE YOOK ACTIONS THAT COULD HAVE RESULTED IN SERIOUS BODILY INJURY OR DEATH TO THE POLICE OFFICER. I shoot through the ****ing window if I had to.

There was a police officer who at the end of a police chase, got ontop of the suspects car, the suspect attempted to drive with the officer on the hood. He shot about 10times through the front window.

This officer met force with force.

That's not what I said, you are disagreeing with facts and logic, not me... btw do you know the difference between prison and jail? Just curious, without looking it up on google that is.

It was the officers choice to put himself in harms way when he kept hold of the door of a moving car. Now a Woman is dead for petty theft.

No I'm disagreeing with your opinion on how the matter resolved, just because it's your opinion doesn't mean it's "facts and logic". I see you have nothing more constructive to add.

So we should just execute people who attempt to escape now? She only committed petty theft. All he had to do was let go of the car, radio in her car was escaping, a car would have chased her and no doubt caught her.

No deaths, and she'd have been brought to justice.


She already tried to escape twice, from the cop at the shop then at the car, she refused to stop and paid the price of her ignorance and crime.

If she surrendered like she was told to do twice then she would have been brought to justice but instead she tried to flee and turned a stop into a getaway which would have got worse specially with infants in the car and if she willing to forcefully drive away from a cop with a gun in her face to begin with..well who knows what would have happened to those kids present, you think a woman who would run a cop over or drag his body around in any part of the car would not drive her and her kids around a pole trying to get away from your "car chasing her"?.

Personally any mother who takes her infants shoplifting with her is appalling and maybe they'll have a better life now then grow up like their mother.

She didn't try to run over the cop, she tried to escape. The Cop put himself in danger when he hung onto the door. Last time I checked the punishment for attempting to evade capture wasn't execution.

It's pretty sad that the moment a person does anything wrong they become fair game to die in the eyes of Neowin's gun nuts. You people are disgusting examples to humanity and I hope someone couples all of you with the kind of violence you seem to crave to be inflicted upon others.

Unfortunately I doubt it will do any good (you don't seem willing to acknowledge the facts)... but this stopped being petty theft and became something else after she resisted arrest.

It's ok, once you commit any crimes, no matter how small you forfeit your Human rights here. And execution by the roadside is the punishment.

So I'm not willing to listen to the facts? You seem to be guilty of the same thing. Unless you're stating that the punishment for resisting arrest is Execution? If so please state the source.

So resisting arrest makes someone worthy of losing their life now? Newsflash: Most criminals try and evade capture. It doesn't negate proportional response.

I think some of you are having a tough time grasping how the situation was very dangerous.

Get a friend to drive your car. Open the driver's side door and grab onto it. Tell your friend to hit the gas. As the car moves forward, the door will swing back. It takes about a second before your legs get dragged underneath the car, so that if you let go, things south of your torso will get run over by the rear wheels. From the cop's point of view, it was the driver's life or his own.
