  • The officer was not in danger when the driver already passed him and was shot in the back of the head.

    I'm sure the cop will get a nice vacation and be right back on the street.

    • @kinduvabigdeal astonishing is you think the dead guy was innocent. the lights came on he tried everything to get away. Maybe he should have tried sitting there and seeing why the cops stopped instead of endangering them and anyone else in his way. He made a great bullet stop. Maybe you should try what he did next time your pulled over and we can get another awesome video. Liberal retard.

  • For all you armchair libs. Ramming a police car is aggravated assault on a police officer and is a felony. It is legal justification to use your firearm. This piece of shit showed no care or regard to the police or general public in his desire to get away. This asshat could of driven off and slammed into your mom's car or your wife's car. Instead of being critical of the police how about we think of the personal responsibility of the perp. He could of simply stopped. No he chose to ram a police More..

    • @BoltThrower @BoltThrower Bear with me sir, as I mean no disrespect by my comment.

      Ramming any vehicle with intent to cause damage or severe bodily harm is a felony. While I do agree, the POS was no doubt a flaming moron, the cop did not appear to be in immanent danger. There was virtually no one else on the road. The vehicle was not pointed at the officer, and the suspect was clearly trying to get away. It could be argued that the suspect backed into the officers car unintentionally, whil More..

      your "legal justification" just means he killed a person simply because he can. He decided to park in harms way. He decided to engage the vehicle on foot. He decided to step in front of the vehicle, and he decided to shoot the guy. He was not "put" in any of those situations. He willingly put himself there. To say that that gives him the right to kill this guy is like stacking the deck and then celebrating your good hand. It's self fulfilling. " More..

  • Turns out Mr Byrd was wanted, they were already actively searching for him, he was in a stolen vehicle, and had a prior arrest for felony fleeing in a vehicle. Amazing how some context helps with understanding the police reaction. Too bad he didnt have the LL keyboard warriors at his back.

  • Definitely didn't drive at any officers. Just because someone won't stop, doesn't mean they should be shot and killed, regardless of how law abiding they are.

    • @Palamares So you think if they pursued him rather than shot him, that he would've driven the speed limit and stopped at all red lights/stop signs, not endangering anyone else? You libs all think alike until it's your family he smashes into and kills when he runs a red light. Then you wish the cops would've stopped it immediately, as they did here. Personally, I'd like to thank the officer for what he did. Perp had tons of time to just stop and he'd be alive.

      Fleeing felon rule.

      To further that: The Supreme Court ruled in 1985 that a police officer cannot shoot a fleeing suspect unless he or she has reason to believe the individual “poses a significant threat of death or serious physical injury to the officer or others."

      So was it in reason to "believe" that the fleeing felon poses a "significant" threat of death or serious physical injury to the officer or others?

  • Pueblo Police say they were searching for the suspect, identified as 35-year-old Andrew Byrd, after a woman reported that he was armed and had stolen her vehicle the night of Feb. 4, 2017. He had several warrants for his arrest at the time, according to the Pueblo Police Department. Byrd was a known gang member. -

    The actions of two Pueblo police officers, who in February fired at and killed a man who reportedly backed into a police cruiser before eventually directing his car at officers, have been ruled justified by the 10th Judicial District Attorney's Office.

    • @Jetasia  That's because you are right and he was trying to flee. People who defend cops have never worked in law enforcement. Trust me I hate to say it but shooting instead of chasing is WAYYYYY easier. It just is. It also places way less risk on me.

      But that is why law enforcement isnt for the scared and weak. It is for the brave and strong. Something scared kids on LL just wouldnt know about.....

      If an officer sees you speeding, should he shoot you just in case you might kill some bystander? If you call my question silly you should probably delete yours.

      If you can't see the difference between someone who is speeding and someone who is willing to slam into a cop car, a parked vehicle, and then drive past another cop with his gun drawn while trying to escape, you should probably delete your entire existence.

      The guy who is just speeding will probably pull over and accept his ticket, while this idiot proved that he was willing to endanger as many people as necessary for him to escape.

    The fleeing suspect was dangerous and would've led the police on a high speed chase risking the lives of innocent people on the road.. He crashed his car within a few seconds of trying to flee. I have my money on him crashing soon after into some one if the cop didnt shoot.

    What, you guys think cops are bluffing when they have their gun out?

    Yes, yes... if the cop had stepped in front of the car, then you would have said he was asking for it. He didn't step in front of the car, and now magically the armed thief with warrants is free to go and create an unnecessary high speed chase?

    Fuck that. Job to do. Job done. Don't want it to happen to you? Don't ram police cars with police officers standing outside them.

The perp had just rammed his car into the one cop so its safe to assume anyone's life was at risk with this guy. I would have done the same thing as the cop with clear conscience.

    If you look at the Shooting Officer's body cam, you see that the suspect seems to reach behind the passenger seat as he reverses so the officer could rightfully claim he feared the suspect was grabbing a gun in addition to his ramming his car out of the blockade.
