    So basically they shoot an unarmed kid because he won't cut the truck off? This is overkill. Thus proving you cannot trust a government official with a deadly weapon. We can't even trust then with microphones. Maybe we SHOULD disarm police and only allow specially trained officers carry like in the UK. They can't stop shooting people.
    The reason the police don't carry firearms in the UK is because so many were killed with their own guns. That gives you an idea of the proficiency of most police, I'm afraid.
    That policemen should be charged with 2nd degree murder though.

    I think it should go to a grand jury for possible murder 2 indictment. They could have shot that truck to inoperable if the fear was him driving off to prevent it. It seems these stories are many a day and even more if the violent assaults by a officer(s) isn't lethal.

    Unfortunately, parents now shouldn't call the police for your kid doing something illegal. For example, in many states if you report your underage kid for committing a crime including against you yourself, the government is going to bill you all his/her court costs and attorney fees.
    You should read the facts, first. He backed a trailer into the police car, onto the hood. Then took off, ran a red light, the truck became disengaged from the trailer. People were getting otu of the way of the truck.

    The guy was a danger to others and wouldn't comply with orders to stop.

    If you want to commit suicide, get a several ton weapon, place others in danger, and refuse to stop being a danger to others even when ordered to do so by teh authorities. You will probably be shot. You must be stopped before an innocent person gets hurt.

    I guess you really taught him a lesson there, jerk.

    Who the hell calls the police on their own kid?

    The adult (being 19 years old and not a kid), rammed a police car then went on a high speed chase. That's pretty much textbook asking to get shot.

    The only way to keep a stopped vehicle from getting back on the highway is to shoot the driver.

    Weird. I've had vehicles unable to drive down the road for flat tires and even minor mechanical problems. And I hadn't been killed even one of those times.

    ****ing disgusting.
    I FULLY disagree and one way to teach a troublesome kid of being on the wrong path is to let him/her do a few nights in jail before they do anything more serious.

    And I have NO doubt if the father had NOT called and that kid ran over someone, people on this forum would be RAGING about him not calling the police.

    So... if a parent does think their minor aged kid is possibly going to harm other people, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should the parents call the police??? I TOTALLY disagree with that and do NOT think a parent should be charged financially for reporting the kid's criminal activities.

    HOW MANY TIMES on this forum have people bitched about parents NOT reporting their kid even acting strange to authorities before doing something horrific? But, now, for this, NO, NEVER CALL THE POLICE on your kid? WRONG.

    Yeah, and look how well that turned out here. The police don't exist to "teach people lessons". It's not their job and they're not very good at it.

    Let me put it this way-- when you call the police on someone, you should know damned well that person stands a very good chance of ending up dead or in prison. If you're okay with doing that to your own flesh and blood then by all means, go ahead and call them, but then don't turn around and cry about it when they do their ****ing job.

    Re: Dad calls cops on son...cops shoot son

    The shift in how people think seems to be that now the question is "MAY the police have shot the person?" from "did the police HAVE to shoot the person?"

    At the same time, elsewhere, arguing people have to basically do nothing to ever defend themselves against assault by police, even if it may cost the person their life.

    There are the rights of Police and rights of citizens.

    That is NOT what the American revolution was about - people furious that the government and it's authorities were too weak and nice.

    If anyone who ever went into an irrational rage on some occasion was shot to death for it? Wouldn't be anywhere NEAR as many members on this forum.

    The photo shows the pickup on the dirt with a 4000 pound cruiser right behind it and another beside it. The tire on the truck showing sure doesn't look flat to me.

    Sure are a lot of people that want the death penalty IF it involves something with the police. Posting that kid deserved to be shot?

    Do you think 5 shots was enough? Maybe it should have been 25 times.

    Candidly, I can't recall a story where an officer shot someone just once. Can you?

    When police shoot someone, they are shooting to end a threat to themselves or someone else. They are trained to keep shooting until that threat is ended. That training saves lives.

    This wasn't "the death penalty", this was an angry, out-of-control idiot posing a danger to everyone around him and getting put down. If he'd cooperated with the police instead of trying to run them over, he'd have gotten his day of court and probably wouldn't have even gone to prison.

    He didn't deserve to die, but he didn't leave the police much choice about it, either.
