« Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck responds to preliminary report on the December 13, 2013 Officer Involved Shooting | Main | Man Shot and Killed While Waiting to Meet with an Acquaintance »

December 20, 2013


This truly does not look good on video for the officers involved! But it's a video and has very little bearing on what the dangers the officers perceived from this out of control maniac at the time of the incident! I have faith in the Chief and the police that a thorough, fair, and transparent investigation is in progress. I am hopeful that at the end the officers are able to justify their actions appropriately but for now I'm lending very little attention to a one- sided , one -dimensional tv clip causing people to make decisions without the facts. Also what about hand poor innocent people this idiot almost killed? Should the family of this dangerous reckless individual sue and win, may the real victims in this ordeal( other car) sue the estate of the individual and get rich!!!

Its unfortunate when guns are drawn by police officers under any circumstances but the public alwys wants to blame the officers in every case right away... look at the criminal who decided to run from the police. I dont feel bad for anyone who breaks the law and tries to run that ends up hurt or killed in the end. One less criminal in our community. Good job officers.

gun range training needs to be modified from all cadets firing until their weapons are empty and all firing at the same time. this produces reactions to gunfire that puts officers into reaction mode where they all empty their guns into whoever the are aiming toward.
it looked like in that live feed that a lead officer took the driver down with at least 2 bean bag rounds and as he was falling to the ground the other officers reacted to the noise of the shot gun going off and fired their service weapons like they were trained on the gun range to shoot. i know it will take time to retrain all the officers but they have to requalify at least once or twice a year with lapd on the range. changes to the range are also going to be needed to make it interactive for this change. firing when other lives are in danger but not emptying every officers magazine as thats going to work out badly at some shootout in the future. i don't blame the officers as they were following range training but by ingrained/intrained reaction instead of proper procedure to protect and to serve.
i do not expect this response to be posted publicly. but i do expect it to land on chief Becks desk and the mayors desk.
thank you.. this is my real email i will be glad to expand explain in conversation with chief beck and or the mayor.
