Ordinarily I’ll back a LEO, but ... uh uhhh ... not THIS one.
Unreal. 51 police cars, 137 shots. It’s like a re-run of The Blues Brothers, except two people were shot 20 times each. I wonder if the cops weren’t on bath salts.
Why were the suspects fleeing in the first place? Either I missed it, or the article didn’t mention it. The police make mistakes, but running from them is just plain stupid. Even if you’re a minority afraid of police brutality. The simple fact is it’s going to go far, far worse for you if you don’t cooperate. I’d rather have a broken arm and/or my face smashed against the pavement than be shot 23 (or 24) times.
Don’t know the details of this cited incident but Cleveland has been a shit-hole for law enforcement officers since black marxist Amhed/Evans started shooting them in the 1970’s. (Believed his name was actually Fred Evans and adopted a Black Muslim name).
Also, in the officers’ records listed by the writer, a lot of them got shot or shot out over the years. No wonder they are a little edgy when hearing reports of possibly armed suspects.
Refresher training is always good just to keep one sharp. In the above cited case, let the investigation run its course. Will be interesting to know if anything contraband was in the fleeing peoples’ car.
Looks like a scene from Smokey and the Bandit!
