So how about that shooting today?

I have a bad feeling about this. From what I can gather, someone stole a cop car and was shooting at people from th car with the stolen guns. He was reported to be near the I-95 underpass and then this police shooting happens. I really hope that they didnít screw up and kill someone who matched the discription. I guess we will find out soon....

I saw 2 videos of it and it looked like typical adrenaline rush for the cops blasting away and filled that truck full of holes as if he was a guy who murdered 10 of their fellow cops or something. Pretty extreme.

dead guy not the one who stole the cruiser.

no idea who the dead guy is or who the girl is that was hurt or why they shot them

A lot of missing details and speculation right now, from car jacking, to driving shootout, to inside job for escape, wrong people killed, to The state trooper vehicle being taken, etc

The one video of like 15 cops unloading intontye truck is pretty inane.

Clearly more laws are needed.

I am pretty sure you are going to see an epic #^&#^&#^&#^&storm come down over this event. Multimillion dollar payouts to the family of that guy and guess who ends up paying for it... us.

There are a lot of multimillion dollar payouts we pay for, most avoidable by following a few key tenants:
Don't do drugs
Don't get in trouble
Don't be an a$$
Pay more attention in school

Do those 4 things and 99 out of 100 people will be better for it

Kind of a perfect storm scenario. Ex con, suspended license, in unregistered truck, police looking for violent escapee, this clown not stopping and ramming cars. I'm sure cops felt there was no other solution. 40 rounds near point blank, girl is lucky to be alive. You can't fix stupid.

Good shoot.

That guy was a trapped animal and was going to kill someone - likely a cop. He rammed the cars on that ramp pretty hard before they shot him

the shooting began before he moved the truck but he was an idiot or something for not doing what the cop wanted.

40 shots at point blank range, he should have been swiss cheese
