    Dad calls cops on son...cops shoot son

    Dad Calls Cops on Son to Teach Him a Lesson, Cops Shoot Son Dead

    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.

    It's what he ****ing gets for calling the police to "teach his son a lesson".

    Not to mention, of course, what the son ****ing gets for refusing to disable the two-ton weapon when the police order him to.

    Maybe some day, people will ****ing learn.

    edit: Also, from the comments:

    "McPherson reportedly followed the vehicle initially before activating his emergency lights. ... Comstock, at one point, is accused of stopping the vehicle and reversing, pushing the trailer into the police car and partially onto its hood, according to police.

    Comstock then sped away again, police reported, running a red light and becoming unhitched from the trailer ... and eventually north on Morrill Road – against one-way traffic in the bike and pedestrian lanes, according to police.

    Witnesses told police that people were jumping out of the way of the truck, which then jumped the curb onto a grassy area north of the university’s Campanile. McPherson unsuccessfully tried to ram the vehicle to get it to stop, police reported."

    All over the Country, the police have become too militarized. Center mass, shoot to kill. All the Federal monies for better weapons, vests, tasers, training schools is just to make these police agencies feel subservient to Federal police agencies. I don't like it. It feels oppressive and the immediate results don't look promising. More dead citizens and the Police claim they are doing the right thing and seem to have Federal support because the agencies are not investigated for promoting manslaughter or worse.

    ... James Comstock called the cops to tell them his son had stolen the truck.

    Soon six or seven police vehicles were chasing Tyler down. At one point, according to an audio recording of police communications obtained by the Des Moines Register newspaper, the younger Comstock backed the truck into a police car. ...

    Thank goodness the police killed the kid. Could you imagine the ****ty customer service that kid would have given people on Geek Squad?

    Seeing the photo of how the truck was boxed in and if they were stopped as the article suggests AND if he was unarmed AND if the reason for shooting was "he wouldn't turn off the truck"?

    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.

    As they should. If your kid is underaged, he is your responsibility. People should know better than to call the police on their own family.

    ****ing disgusting.

    Lots of stupid on both sides. The high speed chase was unnecessary, and one cop tried to call it off. The young man's actions were stupid and dangerous and could be viewed as assault with a deadly weapon (vehicle).


    However from the sound of the end game, it is entirely possible it could have been handled better, and may not have to have ended with a teenager's death.



    This particular incident... (shrug)... questionable, but possibly not unjustified.


    There's been plenty of other incidents though, such that my previous support for LE has been deteriorating rapidly in recent years. **** has gotten out of hand and needs to come down a notch.

    If you want to teach a kid a lesson, the cops should only be involved if it is a wink wink situation when the kid is under 10 years old. Otherwise, if you want to teach the kid a lesson, call your Priest or Pastor. Utterly freaking stupid.
