    She was hit 10 times before expiring according to reports.
    During his latest court hearing there were dozens of LEO of all jurisdictions in attendance to show support. OHP, Sheriff, etc.

    From everything I've read so far, it's a by the book good shoot. Not just a legal shoot, a good one. When the threat is that high and ongoing, you do what you have to do to stop it.

    This DA is a jackasss and should be recalled by the voters. :censored:

    Did his fully semiautomatic assault weapon have the shoulder thingy that goes up?

    is this more proof that only military and police should have weapons of war?

    wait...

    I remember reading a story several years ago, I think out of Texas, where a state trooper pulled over a car and the driver shot him during the traffic stop. A hunter was crossing an overpass with his deer rifle, witnessed the shooting, and dropped the suspect. The DA charged him with murder, but intentionally threw the case so that the guy could never be charged again under double jeopardy. That at least was my understanding.

    Is it possible the DA is trying to do something similar?

    While it is an assumption on my part, I’d say doubtful.

    That is how it was done in the old days but then you drew juries who weren’t motivated by whatever social movement was plaguing social media at the time.

    Today, it’d be stupid to bring up charges in hope of an acquittal and thus no double jeopardy. Too risky you’d get a jury that doesn’t care about facts and are just happy they’d get to hang a cop out to dry.

    Sometimes correct. You charged the officer even in a good shoot and get him acquitted to invoke the double jeopardy was done a lot. Mostly to prevent lawsuits.

    I'm thinking that's actually pretty good if what I heard was accurate. Shooting through your own windshield and then through HER autoglass and/or sheetmetal isn't going to leave much bullet left to do the work of stopping her. I guess we'll get the details eventually...

    Being cleared of any criminal wrong doing does not prevent a civil lawsuit.
