I think most other police forces would have opened the door and just arrested him.
Don't tell me though, America, that would have been too dangerous, wouldn't it? He could have been armed, after all. But there's nothing wrong with gun ownership though, eh?


You are pretty much guaranteed they were armed. The robbers used weapons in the robbery and I believe shots had been fired during the pursuit.

That said, it appears to have been handled in absolutely the worst possible way and there should be firings and criminal charges but given it is South Florida, that is unlikely. Forensics can determine which gun from either cop or criminal killed the driver or the bystander and hopefully that information will be released and acted upon.

31 cops from 3 separate agencies come boiling out of cars firing. I'm genuinely surprised several of their own didn't get hit as you can see police firing from at least 3 and possibly 4 sides. An honest to God circular firing squad. It really is a tough job but it is much tougher if you are stupid, panicked or simply badly trained and lead.

The completely insane thing is that there were three things at stake right?

A: The runaway vehicle. Cops can deal with those, they do it all the time. And the vehicle was stopped in traffic anyways.

B: The UPS driver who was a hostage. They murdered him.

C: The stolen goods which 100% were covered by insurance, since they were from a jewelry store.

So this charade was completely pointless. A bunch of coked up goons wanted to play cowboy and killed two innocent people.

I wonder how many more cars got hit by stray fire.

Cops firing wildly in rush hour traffic, killing the hostage, using civilian cars as human shields.

Literal insanity.


Miramar, Florida. Since it wasn't obvious from the footage or the tweet text, or the very generic station name.


Nice to see the U.S. adopting Brazilian best practices again.

Thanks.
CBS picked it up now too

4 people dead, one being the hostage and one being a bystander hit by stray fire and at least 19 cops firing at the vehicle, in the middle of massive traffic.
It looks like the cargo space takes a few hits too. Im not sure whether that's just someone shooting it because fuck UPS packages or because they can't aim for shit.

Hey question. What do we call someone who feels up 8 year old girls?

If your answer is "Pedo Doug", "Police officer" or "Preacher" you win money.

He didn’t want to feel her up. He just wanted to look at her.
The article doesn’t mention cavity searches.

A lot of people say that this is the kind of “officer” you get when you pay them that low. Give them a raise and you will get highly paid perverts.

Ah, but there was a cavity search.

It was done by female guards....
