  1. no rational person would call this justified. The cop literally stepped in front of the car and it's not like the car was driving at full speed. The car was obviously trying to drive off, not hit the officer. the officer should be jailed. Stuff like this is why public relations with the police are so bad. cops are on OUR payroll. Stop excusing bad behaviors.

  2. Looks like the suspect was just tying to get away not actually run over the officer. Poor reason to open up fire at point blank rage on a citizen. If that person was actually trying to run over the cop, they would have put the pedal to the medal and ran him over.

  5. Que want think estoy doing think going police officers when you want police department 🏬 want this going when you going when you policia when you going when could want this going when you going when

  6. What are you going when you policia when you cops when policia when you going when you going when you August 2019 you going when you going when police officers when you going when could would want policia when you going when you

  7. Certainly justified. The officer didn't need to move out the way and injury isn't required to first shoot. The suspect clearly showed they would run him down and didn't care to do so. So many people in the comment section hating the officer for not moving out the way and saying unjustified obvoiusly don't know a person's right to self-defense. The law clear states: "A person’s right to self-defense is the same whether the danger is real or merely apparent. If the person’s beliefs were reasonable, the danger does not need to have actually existed. What constitutes 'reasonable' self-defense or defense of others is controlled by the circumstances. The question is whether action was instantly required to avoid death or great bodily injury. In this regard, there is no duty to wait until an injury has been inflicted to be sure that deadly force is indeed appropriate. There is no requirement that a person (including a police officer) retreat even if safety could have been achieved by retreating. In addition, police officers are not constitutionally required to use all feasible alternatives to avoid a situation where the use of deadly force is reasonable and justified."

  8. What fucking dumbass cop STANDS IN FRONT OF A CAR… HMMM LETS THINK. THE COP WHO DOES IT ON PURPOSE. BECAUSE YOU WERE TRYIMG TO SHOOT THIS GUY THATS WHY. Fucking crooked azz cop I swear why they dont hold you guys accountable for this shyt I'll never know.

  9. I'll never understand why cops stand in front of vehicles like that. If that dusw had floored it that cop could have been balled up underneath that thing..

  10. When are dumb motherfukers going to learn that police officers can and will shoot you if you try to run them over.
    Not that you should ever run from the cops, but if you do make sure there's no cops in front of the vehicle and you have a clear path to drive away so you don't get your ass shot up

  11. Jesus christ that cop was so poorly trained.
    Every cop would know to NEVER fucking put themselves directly in front or behind a moving vehicle.
    And then even stands there in front of it as if he's gona fucking stop it.
    Fucking idiot's gona get himself killed with that kinda stupidity.

  12. Could the police officer not just taken a couple of strides to the side? He was accelerating slowly. Why are they so quick to use lethal force? I saw one with a guy on a footbridge. Alone. He had a knife. He came towards the police and they shot him. Why? They could’ve just kept backing up. Taser him.
