They certainly get better treatment than their victims received.
I remember a lawsuit in Arizona. There was a guy that tortured and killed a married couple. Sued and won a case on "cruel and unusual punishment" over something really stupid. The Irony.

Dude was pulled over for a traffic stop. I'm guessing he took off because he was carrying and he is a suspect in a homicide. Officer is in fair condition per this article.


Already had 19 felony charges prior to this incident. Mosby needs to be out at States attorney. She is worthless as a wet paper bag with holes in it.

A friend who is close to the family posted that one of the deputies was shot in the head, is showing little brain activity, and, barring a miracle, expected to be removed from life support later today.


That’s a damn shame man. I feel terrible for his co workers and family.

I have always read and listened to stories about how bad it is to work these incidents. I can tell you after working one you can never imagine the feeling. It flat out awful!

One of the Alabama deputies was released from the hospital today. The other was removed from life support and passed away late this afternoon.

I was just reading this. Ugh! In Maryland new rules for police got in effect tonight at midnight I worry we will see more of this here.

What's the deal with the street racing? It's happening all over. Idiots in Indy have started doing it.

Back in high school and college, like 22 years ago before Fast and Furious, we used to sit in parking lots during the summer and people would bring their cars in. Occasionally they'd race on the strip if there was no traffic late at night, but for the most part people just hung out and checked the cars out. The police would come and usually tell us to disperse because we didn't have permission to sit in these parking lots, and so we begrudgingly would leave and find another spot. That went on for awhile, that was until the group did get permission from one of the businesses. The next night we're all sitting in that parking lot and a police cruiser pulls in. We expected him to try and ask us to leave, but he must have gotten the memo because instead of trying to chase us off he did a big ass donut burnout in the parking lot and left while everyone cheered. :LOL:

I don't know how big the street racing scene is in Indy, like if it's just a fun thing or if people have serious work done to their cars. We'd get a lot of people in Southern Ohio those summers, no idea if it's still a thing today. We'd have up to 40-60+ people some nights. We weren't really that into the street racing though. People did most of their racing at the local track.

Sounds like a pretty cool police officer! We did the same thing up in NW Indiana on a street called Broadway. Cars lining the street with their hoods up and we’d sometimes race from light to light but it was mostly a lot of revving engines and an occasional tire squeal.

Austin Simon, 8 priors, was out on parole for assaulting a cop, and has been in prison for 2nd-degree assault.

We let violent people walk the streets and wonder why we have violence.

Glad the prison system is working! Gotta believe the charged will be dropped, but it's NYC. Ridiculous bail for self defense.

I don't know if it's big in Indy, but there have been a couple of reports on it lately. The difference from when you were in HS and today, is these people are blocking main thoroughfares for several blocks so no traffic can get through and holding multiple races so it ties things up until the police arrive. We had the original muscle cars back in the late 60's and early 70's. We'd race, but we went out a ways away from traffic and the police. At one time we had the perfect spot on the far east side of Indy. I-70 was still under construction so we used it for about a month before they opened it.

I'm sure he had a good reason for beating on Alba.

You can thank the liberal judges and state’s attorneys like Mosby in Baltimore.

I get ya. Yeah, we never blocked traffic like that. We only used empty roads late so there would be no real traffic. I get blocking traffic for safety, but never racing in an area where people frequent.

Damn, this dude had ice water in his veins. Checking on the guy immediately after shooting him, even after he was cut by the guy's knife.
There's a brief confrontation here and loss of blood, fair warning if that's not your cup of tea.

Need more police like that on the forces.

Wow good on him for showing restraint. Lots of bad cops would have emptied their piece.
