  • Can't say he wasn't warned, the cop even said please.

      Yes, that is what makes me angry with some of the police videos, where they shoot first and ask questions later. You should give plenty of warnings and so on. After that I have no problem with police using weapons.

    • @DennisOlof The best one I saw was a Mexican guy who got pulled over and he got out of his car and pulled out his wallet. Cop fired off a shot (missed) and the guy is just standing there holding his wallet. He could easily be dead.

      In Mexico, people in cars are told to exit their car not stay inside so the guy was doing what is normal in his culture and he almost got shot dead because of a trigger happy cop that saw anything as a threat rather than identified an actual weapon.

    • Well, he should have stayed in his culture. If you come to a foreign country you have to know the basics or get shot.

    Only a moron or someone with a death wish would ignore the commands of a police officer pointed a loaded gun at you.

  • After four officer-fired rounds rang out outside a Silverado Ranch-area convenience store Saturday evening, an armed man went down, and his wife, who he was in a physical struggle with him over his gun, exclaimed that she’d been hit.

    The bullet, shot by Officer David Nesheiwat, 33, went through Phillip Pitts’ arm and into her stomach, Clark County Assistant Sheriff Tom Roberts said Tuesday.

    As Pitts, 41, pressed the gun against the woman's stomach, Nesheiwat shot twice, knocking the suspect to the ground, Roberts said. While down, Pitts kept the gun pointed at the woman, prompti More..

  • That second officer had it right, you don't have an argument with a man holding a gun to a woman that he has been abusing. You find your angle and put rounds into that fat fucking target. Nice shooting by the officer, yet another justified shooting by the great police in America. Glad none of the officers were injured in this incident, and I am sure that the left is going to cry like the pussyfied retards they are. My only hope, is that these same fucking retards end up at the wrong end of a gun More..

    • @stalker6recon  Well the first officer also didnt shoo the victim. The second officer did. The first cop was trying to resolve it without shooting..... What is the problem with that? His goal was the same. His method was different. He was also alone.

    • @Justiceforall2c 

      Every second that the offender is allowed to hold that woman hostage, is a second closer to seeing her die, while you try to "talk" it out. Only an idiot would take this situation and leave all the power over life and death, in the hands of someone so fucked up, they are willing to put a gun to the head of a woman, while in total view of the public. This is NOT someone that is going to be talked down, nor are they going to give the woman a break, this was the ONLY More..

    • @Benji1 I can sympathize. I wanted to kill my ex wife. I got divorced instead. Now I'm married to another girl for the past 10 years and in all that time we've never had a fight. Happiness is possible but you have to be with the right person lol. My ex wife is still a miserable cunt - at least that's what my kids tell me.

    • @paraparanoid 
      It's actually not as bad as you'd think.
      We shot several propane tanks and couldn't get a single one to blow.
      They'd just launch like a bottle rocket without a stick.
      There'd be frost on the ground and the tank would land all frosted, but no explosion.
      We finally made a little fire and put a tank next to it and shot it. Nice fireball....but no bang, no explosion.

    • @Nrabubba I don't think they are supposed to do that, you really need at least one other cop to engage for multiple obvious reasons, and also one of the things I noticed was that they really don't want to know which one of them killed the suspect, so they all shoot. Similar to a killing squad.
