In the heart of South Beachs entertainment district, a woman was shot dead by a police officer after causing at least one crash and then knocking a cop to the ground with her car Sunday evening.
Police Chief Daniel Oates said the incident started at about 6:15 p.m., when a woman driving a black BMW westbound on 12th Street hit a Mercedes with two men inside at Collins Avenue after running a red light. An officer who was nearby on foot because he was part of additional patrols for the weekend tried to get her to stop, but she accelerated and hit him, throwing him off his feet, Oates said.
Another officer then opened fire. The driver lost control and then struck a parked white SUV on the east corner of 12th Street and Washington Avenue.

Why couldn’t they just shoot the car out of her hands?
Yeah. You know, "wing" her.
Ban the car.
Charge the cop.
There’s a video of this, and you might be right. She speeds towards one cop and hits him. You can see his legs over the top of the car. She then speeds by the second cop, who shoots her just as she passes by him.
I can hear BLM screaming that he shot her in the back.
Focusing on the narrow issue of whether people who run over cops should be admitted to the bar...I’m thinking no. They probably should not be.
Where’s the video of it? Didn’t see one at the link. Just a news report after the fact.
Obviously a feral animal who had to be put down.
There’s a video here:
It’s a Gannet station, so no excerpts on FR.
a BMW rams a work truck, at speed against the light into a Mercedes, at speed flipped a cop, and finally hit a suv. Male passenger, crazed expression on female.
re: SJW - I don’t know who’s organizing it (BLM?) but on a case I’m interested in out of Rosemont, IL, one of the ‘activists’, an 18yo, lamented on utube that he was supposed to go to “Houston for six months” and then Miami. I’m guessing it’s to demonstrate/rabblerouse/rattle noisemakers for the folk who are “unfairly targeted” by hurricanes, or some such made-up nonsense. But anyway, it appears some of them are on some sort of protest ‘circuit’ that’s scheduled months out.
Hope she dies. Really hope she dies.
She just used her car as a deadly weapon.
Excellent, she died. I am very happy a prson wjo acts like this is now dead. It is totally on her, her actions caused her death.
She's not dead enough...give her a couple more rounds.
Only if they are here illegally
She’ll still vote in three cities...
A car is a deadly weapon. Police responded appropriately
Cue the “Just Because She Was Black!” chorus.
She wanted to fight against social injustice (video).
Don’t know if that guy was yelling at her male companion to get out of the car or if he was yelling at her (beginning of video).
