    She was definitely in the wrong, but so was the Officer firing.

    For the life of me I can't understand people who choose to disobey police not once, but multiple times. Just what the **** do you think you're hoping to accomplish?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Shots fired were a bridge too far, officer should face disciplinary action. And the lady is a loon, hope they throw the book at her. The kid should be let go with a warning, he was trying to defend his mom.

    The police have no business firing on anyone who isn't themselves armed. For those afraid of government overreach, shooting at people is about the most overreaching thing a government can do.

    Busting out the windows and shooting was a bad choice. When she took off the second time she should have been followed and monitored. At that point the cop doesn't know if the kids are being held hostage or what's going on but up to that point nothing she was doing was life threatening.

    I don't get why he was even firing, what the heck did he think he was going to hit? And if you notice, the guy couldn't hit a minivan that was only a few feet away from him. Pretty sure the original cop was thinking at one point, "oh crap, who gave Barney real ammo?".

    I believe this is a severe case of bad judgement on the part of the police and supreme idiocy on the part of the mother.

    Both sides created the perfect balance for things to go horribly wrong.

    That has some kind of stupid written all over it.
    The second time she pulled over, the cop failed to control her,
    He should have hand cuffed her right after he got her out of the car.
    We have no idea yet, why she drove off, I doubt it is a good reason.
    The backup officer who shot at the vehicle, appeared to be shooting
    at the drivers rear tire.(he steps hard to the left, and then aims low.)
    All of this is a result of the woman not accepting the ticket.
    I sometimes think people have something broken in their risk/reward calculator.

    Lessee, cop pulls her over. Tells her why, asks for ID and paperwork, gets it, tells her he is going back to his cruiser. Then she leaves going on a highspeed chase with her children in the car.
    Yea, I can see where the cops royally screwed things up. LOLOLOL
