Heh Heh well I started the thread and Im pretty biased toward cops. Ill put you down in the "one of the good ones" category though.


    I have 7 yrs patrol experience and I go in today at 3P. I agree with Bailey that it is hard to arm chair another officer based upon the video presented.

   You don't see the driving behavior prior to the activation of emergency lights. I would want to know exactly how fast they were traveling. I would want to know why the driver didn't pull over when the officer tried to initially stop him. I have been in this situation before where you can't get off the road all the way due to snow pack on the shoulder. I have always stopped the car and then asked them to pull over at the next exit if I felt we were in danger from other traffic. I agree with Bailey, I'm not sure that was a PIT, If it was i don;t think she had enough room for it, however the speed would be ideal.

   I don't think I could give anyone a call on this one without more facts. I have seen good calls and bad calls in my career bot in person and in training.

  I do agree with taking him into arrest at gun oint due to his aggressive response when exiting the van though. That's what i would have done, and have. On most stops you have no idea who's in the car old man driving home, gang banger, teenage kid, man wanted for homicide, or a guy driving his kids home from a New Years party.  again just my .02 cnets

lol im just giving you a hard time. I know you cops have to go through a lot of bs on a daily basis that the public never hears about. but i disagree with you on this incident. I think that the officer did the wrong thing with that lame 10mph pit maneuver and I dont think simply yelling at a cop for being a jackass (and I think this cop in the video was well into jack ass territory) is any reason to pull a gun. And yeah you can say "Well she went back to her training." well then fix the over militarized, over aggressive traiining.

Although I think ramming the car was excessive (but on further inspection I can see how it could be that because of the ice they slid into it and not rammed it), I assert that it is that aggresive training that allows those men and women to return to their loved ones night after night.
