Re: Australian Bride-To-Be Shot While Reporting Possible Crime

I can't figure out the bullet projection.

The bullet penetrated the car door, but hit her abdomen.

Is she really short?

I imagine if she was talking to them, she was leaning down into the window.

Is that why she was in the alley? If so that makes sense if she went out after the police got there ,not before i just had not heard.

I figured it went out through the window. If the driver was speaking to her the window would have been open. Don't see any way to shoot through the body of the door from the passenger seat and not injure the driver. As for being outside, sounds like my town. If the police respond to a call, the whole dang neighborhood and more come to watch--scannerville.

@Cakers3 @Trinity11   Your reasonable and rational posts bring a needed breath of fresh air to this thread.  

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.

@goldensrbest  Clearly nobody can answer that question since she is no longer alive to ask.

@tansy ... I totally agree. The camera should be on from the minute they sign on to the shift until the shift is over. That way, there is no "I forgot." It would also help ensure that officers' conduct is appropriate at all times.

As both were still sitting inside the car, I feel it safe to surmise neither officer thought he was yet in "prior use of force" or in "contact involving criminal activity."

 

You can mark me as one of those who appreciates the work done by our police force.  They are human beings, not perfect beings, asked to work in the worst of environments with the dregs of society, while being judged by everyone who wasn't there.

@IamMrsG  And just because anyone is critical of the police in this situation doesn't mean they are not appreciative of the work done by police forces.   It's not a one-or-the-other kind of thing.

Re: Australian Bride-To-Be Shot While Reporting Possible Crime

Now there are reports that the officer in the driver's seat was "stunned" by the other officer shooting.
