    Video Released of LEO being shot...

    This happened in April but the defense was trying to have the video not released to the public because it would prejudice potential jurors.

    In order to make a fair and just judgment the jury needs to see all the evidence, show them the video.

    Glad the officer is alive, and the spineless suspect caught!

    Not trying to be hard on the officer, but that was a risky move to be firing at the vehicle after it pulled away. I understand use of deadly force was justified, but there were innocents in his line of fire. I am also happy to hear no one else was injured.

    IMO, this is a reminder to practice breathing and control. When the SHTF, you want to better your odds that you can keep all your faculties in order to do the job that needs to be done, with the least amount of risk necessary to anyone.

    I'm glad he is ok. I'm even more glad that none of the drivers passing by were shot.

    Glad the officer has recuperated, and is back to work.
    He should have stayed in the passengers blindspot. It MAY not have protected him fully, but the shooter would have had to really move hard and fast to get an accurate shot off, even playing the off chance he(the shooter) was a lefty.
    Rhanded he would have really had to struggle to get an accurate shot off, let alone 3 good hits.

    First I am glad the officer is ok and the suspect caught. I am however going to make a couple of statements which may pee in someones cheerios.

    The officer used some very bad tactics on the traffic stop which led to the suspect being able to do what he did. This video needs to be used as a training aid to show other officers what not to do in the same situation. As has been stated the officer firing at a moving, fleeing vehicle was probably not a good idea thankfully no one was hurt.

    The car that was in the line of fire it appears turned around to check on him. I wonder if it got ventilated. Very poor choice to fire at the suspect that long after the initial shooting. OTOH the LEO showed amazing composure. I wonder did he think he might die, and wanted to get the best suspect description possible out on the radio before he passed out?

    Very good point. It should be a training aid.

    What else did he do wrong besides angle of approach on the passenger and shoot at a fleeing vehicle.
