Mom says he's not a violent man. His roommate buys a gun from fear of him. He shoots up his house, maybe trying to kill gf. He shoots a cop. Nah, he sounds like a pacifist, alright. Hope the little s#it dies.Cops son see his dad shot by garbage.

That actually occurred in my old Zone area. I don't know the off duty narcotics officer that was shot ( thank God he slipped on his vest before he got out of the car. He was shot 3 times I think.

Prior co workers of mine caught up with the scumbag POS within minutes of the incident as he drove a stolen truck into a house and got into a shootout with him. They shot him numerous times (he did not die). They were warriors today and lived to tell of the deed and possibly saved some citizens lives from this maniac.

The narcotics officer is in very serious shape and due to rescue and Shands Jackville looks like he will pull through but he can use prayers

As far as stopping someone with family in the car, he must have thought the guy was driving real bad and was dedicated enough to the citizens to try and prevent a traffic fatality. The narcotics officer did not know the suspect had just assaulted his girlfriend and cranked off shots at her house just a minute or two earlier.

Sorry, I am NOT stopping someone with my family in the car unless there was some real serious stuff going on and then I'd have to think real hard about it. I would have radioed in and followed until an on-duty unit could respond. Not judging the officer, I just can't imagine putting my child in danger unless it was unavoidable.

Glad the officer will pull through. Must have been traumatic for his kid.

Actually what was going on is the officer was getting numerous complaints from Neighbors about this kids driving. While I agree about not doing police work while family is in the car would be great THAT dept has ordered off duty units to handle other traffic details before and other traffic duties while family is in the car, so for this officer to do this is not far fetched. You are very right thou, you nor I was there, so let's cut him a little slack till he at least gets out of ICU

Here is how lucky the officer really was. One of the first rounds shot at him went through the windshield then appears to have gone through the officer's hand then the bullet hit him in the forehead. It was slowed down enough not to penetrate his skull but it was only by luck he was not killed.... He exited the vehicle and started to return fire...

Hope this hits major media networks how gun control will not work. Legally purchased; then stolen. Yet they think making it harder to get a gun will somehow impede criminals?

Hope he recovers quickly, and I have no problem if the POS dies a slow death.

I read the news story giving the details about the officer being in narcotics, off-duty, and having his son in the vehicle. While my first thoughts were “why in the hell did he make a traffic stop!” then I thought about all the years I worked narcotics and had to admit that I had done similar things myself. Even though you’re assigned to a plainclothes unit, it’s still had to ignore something that could hurt innocent citizens and then you have to live with that memory.

Cops are notorious for second guessing each other on how they would handle different situations. The reality is,and I don’t care if you’re in plainclothes or uniform, you’ve probably had one of those, awww $hit how did this happen situations, and you’re wondering how you got there. So try not to be too judgmental on any officer that probably was only doing what he felt he had to at that minute.

BUT…I would damn sure send all the officers involved in the shooting back for remedial range training if the turd lives!!!

Prayers to the officer and his family and I hope he has a fast recovery.

Yep, we have been there. We have all done things because of duty or whatever other reason and been caught in the middle of crap.

The off duty narcotics officer shot 8 times and missed BUT that was after being shot and hit in the forehead with lead.

When the two officers caught up with the suspect after a chase, he was inside a house and they were shooting through a sliding glass door while other people were inside too. So while the suspect is not dead, all officers did a great job considering all the circumstances.
