Only in America

Posted in The Job - General by 200

Police intervened and a bizzare incident in yesterday afternoon in Miami when officers’ attention was drawn to two naked men fighting on a bike track near a main road.

One of the men was biting at the other man’s face. He was ordered to desist so police opened fire, striking the attacker, who continued chewing the other man’s face so officers shot him again killing him.

Police were then able to rescue the man and get him hospital treatment where his condition remains serious. Sources say that the victim has virtually no face left and was unrecognisable.

I wonder what choices would have been open to the officers had the incident occurred here, other than getting quite angry.

    The sad fact is that if the incident had happened here and the police had shot him, there would be an outcry because the police had shot an unarmed man. The liberal handwringers would all be demanding to know why he wasn’t CS sprayed, tasered, asked firmly to stop? Why wasn’t he shot in the leg? Why couldn’t the police just have pulled him off? The IPCC would announce that they would be conducting a rigorous independent inquiry. They would issue reassuring messages that the police would be prosecuted if at all possible. Oh, and God help the poor police officer firing the shots if the offender was black.

    What Brontosaurus said and I would add the following: Why on earth does any copper want to carry a gun, even when it is not a madatory requiement of us serving officers.

    The Police Service, IPCC, CPS, Media and much of the public will want the cop hung out to dry if he pops a cap in a scrote’s ass; it is just not worth it!
