    I use it a lot to prove a point.

    You think. And I believe that you honestly believe that. In actuality, you use it to prove you have no point.
    Oy vey!

    Otherwise, were you there? You an eye witness?
    After more than 100 bullets into the car, with multiple bullets going into the 2 people inside the car, at the moment the rest of the police officers stopped shooting, all they had to do was wait and see for a second but from what I have read, this police officer is the only one who continued to shoot.

    And if the car was still a weapon, then why jump on the hood of the car to shoot them sitting in the car. That shows that the car was no longer a weapon.

    Again, what's your issue? The people were already dead by your description.

    The moral to this story is, Don't speed away from the cops when they are trying to pull you over!
    When my kids were teen drivers, I always told them to always be polite and respectful to the police
    in a traffic stop. If there is a real problem with the ticket, that is a court discussion, not a roadside one.

    excellent advice. I told my son and other children of friends

    the street is where the cop rules

    Court is where I or other attorneys rule

    don't challenge a cop on his own turf

    Like I said, you were not there. I would also, rather be on a hood if the car moves forward then in front of it or to the rear. Or even the sides, if it catches a wheel well and spins side ways under hard throttle.
    But hey, you were a cop for how long? You have been involved in how many shoot to live situations?

    Because you say so? Or is your tactic just to get the debate off the issue and on to me?

    Sorry, but all police officers except one thought it safe enough to stop shooting after more than 100 bullets into a car.

    You know what, if only police officers are allowed to comment on stupid and insane actions/crimes of police officers than no bad apples in the police force will be forced out. I think that nowhere in the Western world, there is a police force so violent as the US police force, none. Where police shootings in other countries are a rarity, in the US it is as common as is possible. And I understand that the high number of guns is a reason that police officers need to be much more careful than police officers in other countries are but even after high speed pursuits it is very rare that someone is shot.

    Most likely, but the officer should have known that after 100 bullets, these people are no longer a threat. This is overkill and maybe they could have been saved (unlikely) but shooting into the car like that standing on the hood is just overkill/dirty harry complex and I think the police force does not need to have that kind of bad publicity/that kind of police officers.
