  1. Ten years ago I saw a televised pursuit of a middle aged woman with a gun by Highway patrol. Eventually she was cornered on the highway and convinced to surrender and taken into custody alive and well. Why does it take six police officers to shoot over 25 rounds simultaneously in a residential area? Did they take into account nearby pedestrians?

  2. May be he should have thought twice about driving with his daughter in his car while drunk and then firing on the police , this is what happens when you take shots at the police while drunk!
