    Good job by the cop to:
    1: Not hit anyone when he fires
    2: Rescue the damsel in distress

    Good job indeed.

    Did CNN ask if he used hollow points?

    He just wanted to break the windshield not blow up the car. You know those cop-killing hollow points explode on impact, right?

    His firearm saved a life? The media will try to bury this story ASAP...

    Don't forget, he was a LEO. Their guns are life-saving miracles. Ours are the blood-thirsty demon machines...

    He'll probably get a commendation and a reprimand all at the same time.

    Quick thinking... I want to believe he knew exactly where those bullets were going to end up!

    Glad it turned out well for both involved, theres a tool called a Window Punch should be in every cruiser just incase the baton doesn't work. There under 10.00 dollars and well worth the investment for anybody in Law Enforcement/Paramedic/TT Operator etc.

    I'm not really sure what window he shot out but, I don't think the punches work on laminated glass.

    Attachment 22292There are easier ways to break a window other than shooting it. If you listen to him closely it was not a windshield. Shooting at those will get you nowhere. If I was on scene I would be seriously ticked off if he suddenly started busting caps into the car. I have seen several videos of LEOs trying multiple times to break car glass with a baton. You need to use a pointed object in the corner. On the Medic (and on the big red trucks) we use either the pointy end of a fire ax or a spring loaded center punch.
