    So basically... she was shot to death for leaving the scene of an accident.

    Seems a tad bit extreme to me.

    If that was the policy of the LAPD, it sure would deplete the illegal alien population in Los Angeles.

    Los Angeles averages 48 hit and runs every day and the majority are illegal aliens.

    She was obviously insane.
    Are liberals/Democrats demonstrably mentally ill?

    Hey, it happens in the movies all the time! But seriously, they're trained shooters, and it seems as easy, if not easier, to shoot at any one of four tires than to shoot a face inside the car. Also, I thought the car had come to a stop after crashing, at which point couldn't they shoot out the tires, then order her to get out for arrest? But that's when they shot her to death. That's what I thought I read. (They had been shooting during the chase, too.)

    What's really sick is that the Capitol police murdered the woman in cold blood right in front of her baby daughter and then congress gave them a standing ovation.

    WTF?

    How long before a republican claims an unnamed source told them the police were given a stand down order?

    If we're talking about police, their training with weapons is meager. Remember just this year, that shootout where police wounded several civilians? They just aren't very good. Plus handguns are very inaccurate except at very short range. Plus tires are rubbery and rather hard, if a bullet glances off it's a mean ricochet.

    That being said, it seems to me that there was serious overreaction. This is the kind of thing I'd expect in Iraq. Sounds like she got into an accident and then panicked when men drew guns and ran to her car.
