Vegas is crazy. I was walking down the strip and a car comes screeching around the corner with a cop in pursuit. Guy stops, gets out of his car. Cop stops, gets out and pulls his gun. Guy hops back in the car and the cop starts chasing him again. I'm looking around wondering where the film crew is. Just knew it was for CSI or something. Nope. Just two o'clock on a Thursday afternoon in Vegas.

That video makes me feel better knowing a cop can try to put the mag in backwards too. Of course I do it at the range under zero pressure. LOL

Bet that was loud inside the car. It sounded like the perps were firing automatic weapons at the police on the videos I've seen. Or was that another pursuing police officer firing at the fleeing perps? It must have been really bad if the officer was firing THROUGH the windshield at the vehicle.

Most compelling police video I think I've ever seen. Cops don't mess around with 1 or 2 or 3 shots. Better to empty the mag, reload, and re-assess.

He killed his windshield.
Is that even legal?

ahh yea!
1) the air unit he called for should have been a Warthog , not a helicoptor!
2) does inline injury cover blown ear drums you think?
3) I think describing the perps as bald headed with Tats as being somewhat politically insensitive.
4) meantime back at the fire station we put on a fresh pot of coffee.
5) likely the safest place to be in something like this is the vehicle that each is trying to hit, count me OUT for being a person driving or walking down the street minding my own business.

he had to shoot through the windshield, remember that's FBI approved ammo, it won't work if you don't shoot through the windshield or the perps are wearing 14 layers of denim!

I love this comment from the article.

"22-year-old Fidel Miranda was destroyed in the gunfight."

:thumb:
Who knew Scottish people were so violent?
I tell ya those Scottish gangs are just getting out of hand!

The amazing thing for me is that not one single bit of foul language was uttered during that entire exchange. Clearly this man was never Active Duty Army/Navy/Marine...Airforce...maybe, but definitely not the other three. The first thing you learn in those branches is that when you are being shot at, F-Bombs are to be dropped immediately - it's SOP.

"You can see the video of the shooting below. The officer returns fire at around the 3:15 mark. WARNING - May be disturbing to some viewers:"

Not at all disturbing to me.
Oh that poor windshield.

Hash Marks on officers left arm show he is no rookie. I think he did what was necessary considering the shot the perps let fly on the streets of LV with all that traffic and businesses. I saw where they want the entire body camera footage to examine. Examine what? The footage shows all I need to see.

Whatever he did, he kilt him. I have to say, he was lucky. Would the windshield plug the hollow point or flatten it? Would the angle of the windshield cause the bullet to go down ?
So many questions.

I wonder if his hearing examination will be scheduled before or after the review? I'm thinking before, so they're sure he can hear the questions.

After watching that I think all police cruisers need a mike button placed on their steering wheel. High speed pursuits with one hand while giving updates with the other is a good way to get wrecked.
