Well I’m glad I didn’t start this topic but her crimes didn’t warrant the death penalty.
She was very lucky the windshield deflected the bullets.
So if anyone bumps my car I should assume they are trying to kill me and I have the right to use deadly force right?
I have some things to do but I’ll respond to the law enforcement cheerleading onslaught later.
You used the word "bumps" This is a common French Fry tactic to down play the incident. The correct word is "ram." And she didn't ram the police car once. She rammed it twice. - According to the article the officer got out of his car and ordered the female to stop. I assume he was using loud verbal commands. It was 11:30am in the daylight so i assume the officer was clearly able to be seen as a police officer.
She accelerates her car towards the officer after she "rammed" his patrol vehicle twice.
Officer shoots and tries to flee the attack. (Thus the large space between the groups in the bullets.)
She then proceeds to drive her 2000lbs bullet through city streets "ramming" into cars all allong the streets as she goes untill the police area able to "ram" her back and pin her between other vehicles (as seen in the photograph). It is the middle of the day, and I have no doubt that her actions were a direct threat to public safety. There is alot of pedestrian and vehicle traffic in that area during the day time. Does she have to run someone over before the police are allowed to defend themselves?
"Ramming" a police car or any car is called Felonious Assault.
I know my posting here is probably pointless because all of us at MonroeTalks has learned by now that there is absolutely nothing the police can do that will satisfy our esteemed poster, Mr French Fry.
