    N.B.C. news already blaming the Police.
    Next we will have to hear all about how the thieves were just doing a little Christmas shopping and got shot at with a GUN by the evil store owner.
    I sure do feel bad for the Family of the UPS driver and my heart is bleeding for them. I have great joy for the thieves that will not be a problem for anyone anymore.

    Honestly, this was a complete clusterf***, tactics wise. Inter-jurisdiction, uncoordinated free for all. Should have had a good SOP in place.

    Waiting for all the facts to emerge regarding the LEO/LEA(s) response, but it sure doesn't appear to be very good initial reports for the "good" guys.

    My condolences go out to the families of the UPS Driver & the bystander. I will reserve any premature blame until all the facts are out. IMO there are two absolutes at this time; The armed assailants had to be stopped at all cost and there was a huge Cluster-F**K in doing so.

    Can't wait to hear how many cops were on that scene! Seemed like there were plenty of other times they could have stopped/pitted that truck in the 30 odd miles they went before waiting till they got trapped in traffic! Cluster*#%^ seems to be an understatement!

    19 officers fired their guns. An acquaintance on another forum posted this clip onto his personal YouTube page.
    You can see them using an innocent bystanders vehicle as cover. You can also see all the rounds they fired at and into the UPS truck.
    Toward the end you see the UPS driver fall out of the truck. The police are the ones who killed him and the other person.

    The 19 officers who fired their weapons have been placed on administrative leave until the investigation is complete.

    I do not know why in a thing like this, One Police officer can get ahead of the criminal vehicle with an AR and dot the thieves eye from an overpass.
    No overpass, Ground will do just fine.
    I know some of you do not agree about this but I still feel a person running from the Police are to be shot with NO EXCEPTIONS.
    Innocent citizens do "NOT" run from the Police.

    What astonishes me (in every case like this) is that the bystanders.... bySTAND, instead of GTFO of there. Just stunning to me that our culture has had their basic instincts of self-preservation politically-corrected out of them.

    Me? If I can't drive out of there, which is unlikely... I'd find a way... But, if I can't, I'm bailing out and running away. I've drilled this into my family (wife and kids). If you hear or see gunshots... GTFO! Run until you either can't physically run anymore or hit the state line, whichever comes first.

    But, look at all the cars that had escape routes that DIDN'T move. Many of them could have jumped the median and gotten some distance from the shooting. But, they didn't. They had room to hit "reverse" and gun it. But, they didn't. They stopped, instead. Holy moly.
