    Off-Duty Cop Fatally Shoots Ex-Wife In Front Of Daughter

    Off-Duty Cop Phil Seidle Allegedly Chases Down, Fatally Shoots Ex-Wife In Front Of Daughter

    I am always amazed how people lose their mind over child custody issues. I am not defending this cop, I just...Well, honestly, I know so much about the court battles between parents, believe me that's really awful. I wish everyone would stop and think and act like adult humans. If you just grab your gun and start shooting...it's not the best way to solve the problem, you know, right?

    He'll be put on paid leave and he'll receive a written reprimand. Otherwise there's really nothing unusual here.

    Yeah I'm sure the police apologists here will say she deserved to be shot because she resisted. Or it was her fault because she didn't listen to the cop. Or she was driving away from the cop trying to escape so he had a right to shoot her.

    He should be charged with 1st degree murder. But he's a cop, so he'll probably be charged with something like illegally discharging his gun in city limits, get a fine and be back on the job in 30 days.

    In New Jersey, a cop can chase down his wife, shoot her in broad daylight, endanger a child... and some cops will figure out a way to make him surrender by talking... but in Cleveland, a cop couldn't figure out how to do the same thing with a 13 year old playing around with a toy.

    As a matter of fact, some of the posters in this forum have claimed that Tamir Rice posed a threat and argued that he was dealt with accordingly because who knows? The situation might have turned into an Aurora-type of shooting. The level of bull**** we have to put up with from apologists in this forum really is amazing.

    Anyways, sit back, and enjoy the acrobatics.

    This post seems to be really off-topic and attempt to derail the thread, but it would have been better if the cops had not been so successful in talking the guy down from shooting himself.

    Lol, there is no attempt to derail as I am addressing the subject which includes how police handled this specific incident and compared it to those handled by police officers elsewhere. Actually, don't try and lecture me after less than 20 days on the forum. You'll end up looking stupid really fast.

    this was a crazy out of control d00d with a gun, he was a "cop" by profession. I don't think you can relate the two together on this one.
    If you build an army of 100 lions and their leader is a dog, in any fight, the lions will die like a dog. But if you build an army of 100 dogs and their leader is a lion, all dogs will fight like a lion.

    I agree, there are probably hundreds of domestic related murders a year, of course there is a chance a couple might be cops.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Some people see violence and aggression as the only way to conduct human relations.

    The government sets a fine example of that in its daily operations. It is probably true that violence begets violence.

    I would even think given the fact that the cops actually witnessed the guy murder someone it would be their duty to just shoot him dead. I mean that's ok if someone is just running away, passively resisting, or a kid in the park with a BB gun, why not murder right?
