Let me give you a dose of reality vs media sensationalism !
I have knowledge that a police officer is taught to reach in and try to get the keys from a person who seems like they are goin to leave the scene . If she was trying to leave in his car logic dictates that he tried to reach for the keys and she responded by striking his hand with whatever was there ... Maybe even sharp edged keys ... anything to make him remove his arm and/or hand from said vehicle ! After his attempt to stop her failed he unloaded the clip at his own vehicle killing this woman !
Nobody says it was right of her to do this but it should not have been a fatal event ... good follow up law enforcement would have stopped her down the road after she had time to think ! This Dustin Patrick needs to be punished severely for his bad actions !
All of you who keep on trying to make this guy look like the he did what was completely acceptable need to think before they support such heavy handed and lethal actions ... First point is that every mention of this story is that she was shot before she took his car or just as she was taking it ... Anyone who knows even a little about shooting can tell that all of these bullets were fired while she was in the car and leaving / not attacking the deputy the way you people seem to want to tell it when facts are NOBODY WAS THERE but her and Dustin Patrick BCSD ... And those children ... by the way we don,t try and convict just because some "witness" claims they saw a bunch of people moving around the police car ! I guess in the post 911 America all you have to do is see the possibility of terror in order to make sure that something TERRIBLE does happen ! So keep right on informing on your fellow Americans and see just how violent it will get ...
Exactly ! The whole story is that he had no business shooting anyone ... You cop loving idiots need to realize one day it could be you just because you walk away slowly from some irate assanine officer who then decides he has a right to open fire for resisting law enforcement ! Dollydagger seems to be a typical pro - cop or possibly one of Bradley Co. Punks >>> Yes/No maybe ! Who cares ? Not Me !
Oh yeah the dpty Dustin Patrick BCSD was only slightly cut on his hand and not stabbed or any other such wounds as to call life threatening ... If this gets swept under the rug then I know that America is not the country it once was ... We have the right to due process and protection fron street justice scenarios like this one ! All he had to do is sit there and call for backup ! She could have been stopped professionaly by the entire Law Enforcement resources at our disposal ... NOT LIKE THIS !
First of all someone needs to get this story out there there is no mention of it unless you search it ... Next ! I was not going to bring up the negative cop comments til I saw all these idiots trying to act like he did just the right thing !
Dpty. Dustin Patrick is a murderer He used deadly force when his life or the kids lives were not in immediate danger ... The story says she wrecked and then died The truth is he had already shot his entire magazine into the car killing her and causing the car to crash !!! Now he gets free paid vacation time ... WRONG ANSWER ! Justice now is the only answer he needs to be tried for at least manslaughter ...
