Head-scratcher

Officer justified in shooting handcuffed subject, in the back of a patrol car, with his AR-15. Trying to figure out how that went down.

    And he missed. WTF?

  2. Phelps Says:

    Shut up, civilian, that’s how.

  3. Canthros Says:

    Awkwardly.

    Unless that is a really short AR, anyway.

  4. Phelps Says:

    In all seriousness, I’m sure it was ND that was covered up with “uh, I thought I needed to shoot him but I was wrong.” Furtive movement seems to be less damaging to the cop than booger hook on the bang switch.

    HOW DARE YOU QUESTION OFFICER SAFETY!

  6. TomcatTCH Says:

    funny how that never works the other way around.

  7. Weer'd Beard Says:

    Any word if the officer went home and slept like a baby?

  8. Jeff Says:

    He still has to worry about a Federal Civil Rights charge. And a civil suit.

  9. RWC Says:

    This is the best part –

    “Scully disbanded the unit assigned to such investigate criminal liability in such shootings.”

  10. Paul Says:

    Maybe the guy in handcuffs was a Taekwondo master and was gonna kick him, or so the cop thought.

  11. John Says:

    How dare they challenge public safety.

    Yeah, works that way round, too.

  12. Jay G. Says:

    He shoulda just gave him some lumps…

    TASER. Spelled T-A-S-E-R. Does not sound like M4. Is not spelled like M4. Does not look like a M4. So Scully: Ask Officer why he did NOT use a Taser. Then explain to Feds why you covered up for the Cop like he was a Member of the Canton, Ohio P.D.

    Simple enough?

    Markie Marxist sez: “Obviously, whatever the police officer needed to do was necessary and proper for him to do and was done properly by him. Too bad it wasn’t a CCW holder who screwed up and wrongfully fired his weapon in such a crazy fiasco – we could get away with banning every private citizen in the whole state from concealed carry over something like this!”

  15. Beaumont Says:

    Did the suspect fail to contribute to the officer’s retirement fund?

  16. junyo Says:

    I’m not a LEO, so forgive my ignorance, but wouldn’t it be smarter to do a thorough search of the suspect and insure they don’t have a weapon before you put them in your vehicle, rather than potentially getting into a rifle battle inside your cruiser?

    In my hometown it’s become common to admire the chief of police explaining on TV how the officer was justified in defending himself despite the autopsy finding all bullets entered the suspects back. There have been 19 deadly shootings in the last 19 months, all found “justifiable”, all lawsuits settled by the city without trail. The city attorney told the city council to not bring in the feds for an independent review “because that could get expensive”.

  18. Mr Evilwrench Says:

    See, Mu, they’re just looking out for your best interests. You wouldn’t want to have to be taxed even more to pay for their mistakes, would you? Just go back to sleep, there’s nothing to worry about.

  19. Jay Says:

    Because of shit like this:

    There is also video out there (I can’t seem to find it at the moment), where a suspect is laying on his stomach handcuffed behind his back and still manages to draw a pistol and shoot at officers.

    Am I condoning this officer’s actions? No. I’m just trying to prove that handcuffs aren’t magical restraints.

    It does sound like the officers involved need to work on their search procedures though.

  20. Jay Says:

    Well I fucked up that link! LOL

  21. Old NFO Says:

    WTF is right! And he MISSED from 5 feet???

  22. John Smith. Says:

    If he thought he was armed why did he put him in the police car to begin with… Guess that is not one of the things they teach in police academy… So he tried to shoot him in the face and missed a target that could not really move… Talk about an amazing shot… He should get on with the crew that hit Gurena…

  23. Tom Says:

    Grazed his cheek.

    GRAZED. HIS. F-ing. Cheek.

    Worst. shot. ever.

  24. ZCORR Says:

    I also agree this is the best part
    “Scully disbanded the unit assigned to such investigate criminal liability in such shootings.”

    So now there is no one questioning these situations? God help the people of that town.

  25. Sid Says:

    But Bubblehead Les, don’t you know that Tasers kill people. The officer felt that the prudent action was to shoot the suspect in the head from 5ft away which posed less risk to all involved….. I can’t even type that with a straight face.

  26. Bryan S. Says:

    How much longer until the sheep of this country are wailing for the federal government to disband these rouge cops and use the military of DHS for a “well funded” police force?

    Welcome to the beginning of the “Top down, bottom up” scenario.

    Sounds like good police work to me.

    Was it the abusive officer in Canton, Ohio of viral youtube fame?

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
