    Whoa! That's one lucky police officer! Once he got his hand on his pistol, it was out cleanly and rounds were going in the dirt bag QUICK. Glad he got that dude.

    Wow....That happened really fast.

    Good idea to always keep an eye on a persons hands a situation arises.

    That was really something.

    The obit of the attepted cop killer:

    http://missoulian.com/news/local/obitua ... 03286.html

    "Raymond 'Thane' Davis was born Sept. 17, 1973. He was given freedom from his earthly cares on Saturday, Jan. 2, 2010."

    That's a nice and flowery way of putting it. I'm sure the officer was glad that Thane got his freedom that night!

    Unbelievable, the obit tries to make him look like a harmless teddy bear and saint!

    Cheese 'n' crackers I'm glad that officer walked away from that. Thank God the hammer fell on any emoty round first and gave the officer a chance to duck. Completely justified shooting; anyone willing to take a shot at an officer is a whack job that is a danger to everyone.

    Amen.

    I agree. Justified.




    (Anyone else notice that a pole claimed another one?)

    Would it not be customary to do a reload right away? If he's not empty, he's pretty close to it and there may be only one person now, but maybe not next time.

    That's not a criticism, I'm curious what the SOP is. I would hope that much would be instinctual.

    OMG!!!


    Sadly every officer has to go to work everyday thinking this could have been them . It stated the offender was on a register violet offenders list what does this mean?

    Uh, well... I'm glad for the officer's sake that the BG didn't think that far ahead.

    I was wondering what kind of round that was, the bang was loud on the video with almost a 1 foot fireball. Glad the officer's okay, and if there is a night to have a few stiff drinks....

    I learned a long time ago from a LEO friend of mine how to be a "good stop". I turn the motor off, inside lights on(at night), and the keys in my hand which both hands are crossed outside the window. I do not move..until the officer asks me to. Invariably they always ask me what I am doing...when I tell them what and why they ALWAYS let me go with a warning. So if you get pulled over follow these steps and the cop will KNOW you are not a crazy a$$ like this guy. Righteous shoot and thank God this guy's guardian angel was looking on duty. :righton:

    I'm glad the cop is not getting prosecuted for this.
    This kind of shooting of a fleeing felon should always be OK under circumstances like this.
    But from a technical legal analysis, you could say the threat to the officer was over after the bad guy stopped shooting and started driving away.
    All those rounds fired at his back and the back of his head as he fled the scene of the attempted murder...

    ... let's just say that if this same kind of gunplay went down between two rednecks in a trailer park or two black men in the inner-city, it's much more likely that the survivor would be charged with murder or voluntary manslaughter.

    I see these things, and it just blows me away. What was that guy thinking? If I shoot a cop, I'll get out of a speeding ticket? I don't like the idea of a cop disarming me during a traffic stop, but I can certainly understand it....

    Man thats insane, glad the cop is ok and the BG is off the streets. One interesting thing I noticed: The BG's gun comes out first and it appears that he has the cop, then the BG's appears to pull his gun back into his car, then the gun comes back out and fires. I wonder if the BG had his safety on or something. Regardless, glad the officer is ok and not being prosecuted.

    EDIT: Nevermind, the article says the bad guy dropped the hammer on an empty round.
