Obviously, the majority of the blame goes on the friend. But you're driving around in a car with your kid, and also someone who not only carries a weapon like that, but is willing to use it on the police? That shit doesn't happen accidentally. The fuck up started way before they got pulled over.

That's what the "service" part of civil service entails. You continue to do the right thing in spite of the danger - which relatively speaking, is still exceptionally low. The majority of officers will NEVER be in a position to fire their service weapon and their likelihood of being injured on the job by someone like this is measured in the hundredths of a percent.

Is it tragic? Absolutely. Should they take some level of precaution? Certainly. But it needs to be measured and proportional to the risk.

Edit: Ah, protectandserve has arrived and the inbox spam and threats/challenges that come with it. Sorry about those ASVAB scores boys, but puffing your chest isn't helping your cause. Carry on.

That is a very good answer. I’m not certified to shoot anything beyond an airsoft rifle, and maybe I’m getting the reasons wrong, but I was in that place with friends shot or me shot I would magdump like no tomorrow

u/EngineeringAndHemp Aug 12 '22 edited Aug 13 '22

That is what you are supposed to do.

In an active threat situation where you have to use deadly force at such a close range you need to mag dump, and continue to mag dump until the threat is neutralized.

It isn't a movie. It isn't the matrix. Your adrenaline and freezing fear will kill you. You have to be robotic and enact previous training and muscle memory.

Fire on target until the threat stops. Reload if rounds don't fire. Repeat until safe.

You simply do not think beyond are you hitting your target, aim correction, and if the threat has stopped posing a threat to your life.

What's unfortunate is by the time the threat stops it's too late for them to survive.

EDIT: KEY EXAMPLE ADDED

This cop will not go on patrol without 145 rounds of ammunition for the very reason 5-15 rounds may not be anough to make the threat stop.

I remember when this happened. They only survived because his poorly maintained ar-pistol jammed and he was too dumb to clear it. You can see how he went around their car and in the confusion the police fired on the other car. Then he came up behind and used it as a blunt object. If he knew how to actually work that thing this would've been multiple murders.

Meanwhile I'm watching court cam last night on TV and a guy that was on American Idol got denied bond twice after killing someone in a car accident.

The judge decided that a guy with no record who might or might not have been fucked up was enough of a danger to the community that he needed to sit in jail till the lab got around to testing his same.

To be fair, there are some counties throughout the country that twist everyone's arm by tacking on 10-20 charges for any single crime including smallest forms of non violent crime. Then the DA will offer to drop most of them to force you to take a plea bargain. You end up with the original amount of charges you should have had to begin with but the da gets to minimize the effectiveness of your lawyer and act like their super nice at the same time.

16

u/drichatx Aug 12 '22

Exactly this. It's a strategy that the District Attorney uses to put W's on the board, and minimize the risk of L's. Start with as many of the highest value charges that are applicable so they can look benevolent when they walk them back during plea deal discussions. Can't lose if you don't go to court. Society pays the price by having guys like this out on the streets, all so the DA can say, "I've been highly effective at my job. Just look at my conviction rate!" come election time.

A friend of mine from high school is a cop in a small town in Wisconsin. During his field training he and his training officer made a traffic stop for no brake lights. My friend was driving and handling all the duties while being observed by the training officer. He asked the driver for his license and he said that he didn’t have one. Friend said alright sit tight I’ll be back. Running info in the car, they heard the guys truck start. Didn’t think much of it, it was February in Wisconsin and cold. Back to looking at the computer, the guy pulls away, turns around and goes door to door and says “hey just follow me” and took off. Led them on a low speed chase through town (speed limit is 30, guy never got above that) and pulled into his driveway on the other side of town, about 4 miles away. Dude had 9 OWIs, and that day got number 10 plus fleeing and resisting arrest and whatever else they charged him with

My friend just had his sister murdered in her sleep by her boyfriend, he shit her in the back. Dude got out on a $10k bond while they “awaited the autopsy”.

My bond for a first time drug offense, non-violent & victimless unless I, the addict am the victim? $250,000. Our justice system doesn’t actually care about keep criminals off of the streets, they care about housing the inmates which give them the most $. And county jails don’t make money off of housing felony charges, they make money off of petty misdemeanors. Which is why I watched every woman who came in on a violent charge at the time I did get released, and I was held on a petty paraphernalia charge, no different than getting caught with a bong. Its alllll about $$$.

Yeah I grew up in Palm Bay which at one point was basically south Melbourne (FL) in the 80s and 90s. Palm Bay has since grown to be a larger city than its neighbor, Melbourne.

Melbourne/Palm Bay is less than an hour's drive away from Kennedy Space Center. It's no coincidence that a LOT of defense/aerospace companies (Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, L3Harris, etc.) have very big very expensive campuses in the Melbourne/Palm Bay area. It used to be that these cities housed a lot of the career people who worked in some capacity to support the space program, but as time marched forward and our nation's focus shifted so too did the economic basis for Melbourne and Palm Bay.

While neither Melbourne nor Palm Bay are bad places to live, it's true that a lot of the population of the area is made up of the kids and grandkids of the folks who moved to the area to work in its technology sector who haven't enjoyed the same economic fortune as their forbearers. They can't fill the same jobs as their parents did because technology has marched forward and those old jobs no longer exist. The new technology jobs that have replaced them are generally the kind that require someone to have 10 years of experience in aerospace engineering or in radio communication circuit design, and are positions with low turnover that aren't really opportunities for young adults fresh out of college.

It's a weird place with a lot of conflicting cultures and a lot of young people bitter that they were promised opportunity where none actually existed. A few years ago I would have advised any young person in Melbourne or Palm Bay to get themselves to Orlando ASAP where the real education and job opportunities exist, but Orlando property taxes (and therefore general cost of housing) are FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKED.

It’s getting old everyone giving cops hell when some cops do bad things. Not every cop is scum of the earth. The officer was interacting with the man and being nice , talkative and none confrontational. He was doing his job. The man who did this was a career felon. He was a constant drain on society. The life of the child meant less to him that going back to jail. I’ll come out and say it, I’m glad that man died that day. Not all of us are worthy of having an existence on this earth. And it’s no one persons job to tell you wether you matter or not. But this man consistently proves to everyone he wasn’t trying to be part of society. He chose murder over the life of a 2 month old child.

The police conducted themself respectfully and peacefully until their lives were deemed unworthy by the now deceased man.

Of course back the blue. Always back the blue. But also always hold them accountable for misconduct and crimes the same way they do with each and every one of us.

A lot of it is likely about protecting the officers but they it does also protect the identity of anyone being transported, which is a good thing IMO even if we are just talking about people actually being arrested.

There's a bunch of kinda small helpful reasons. It allows the officers to look into cars without being seen. It protects the identity of the detained person, if there were someone in the back seat (which is the most important imo). It prevents people from looking in and seeing their equipment and trying to steal it. There's a good reason for K9 units specifically too but I can't seem to remember that one.

u/TrisomyTwentyOne Aug 12 '22

Suppressing fire to keep him behind cover, clearly he thought the guy was hiding behind the other car

Somehow they still thought he was behind that car, but he had already gone all the way around and got them from behind. No clue how he managed to do it without them noticing lmao.

Adrenaline . You can lose focus in these situations quickly, especially if they don't happen a lot.

Cop got shot in the leg, really easy to loose track of what the hell is going around you when your leg is screaming bloody murder.

"Registered career criminal"

This is not the best description.... Like, did he fill out a form?

Jesus fucking Christ I hope the officers are okay and I hope the baby is okay, what in the hell dude!!! Situational awareness needs to be better, I hope they get another opportunity to see their babies at home.

How does one register as a career criminal, and what's the average take home?

That was some mighty fine shooting at the end, just kept pulling the trigger till it clicks.

Makes the mag dump into the pos at the end feel truly justified.

I’m surprised all three of those cops survived, they were stupid enough to let dude get behind them if he had any bullets left they’d be dead

u/CivilBear5 Aug 12 '22

Where’s the third cop?

u/PremiumMcMemeium Aug 12 '22

Right, because getting shot in the leg and having all hell break loose wouldn't fuck with your thought process in the slightest/s

I mean hell, why even have police when we could just have you out there on your high horse with your flawless 20-20 hindsight?

u/crgresham Aug 12 '22

Right, that one guy was worried about the unarmed guy running away instead of finding the guy with the gun.

6

u/wangofjenus Aug 12 '22

He probably thought that was the guy who shot at them, considering he got flanked so hard.

13

u/arigato_alfonzo Aug 12 '22

Exactly, and the way they had their backs turned to the same direction is crazy not to mention one of the cops almost shot his own partner.

u/UltraeVires Aug 12 '22 edited Aug 12 '22

Can you guys really not apply any objectiveness here? The cop didn't have the view we did watching.

It's like you watch something and then assume that everyone in the video must have seen what you did. Clearly the cop on the left believed the gunman was still ahead. The last time he saw him was ducking down from the leg shot.

Those cops would have had more adrenaline into their bodies within seconds than you've had in a lifetime. Tunnel vision, deafened ears from the gunfire, fingers shaking like an earthquake, and blood rushing to their cores, and you're giving them shit because they didn't react like you sat there with a pause and rewind button?

The scumbag's name was Paris Wilder. Good thing that police officer put him down. Thankfully, the baby, dog and the other two occupants of the vehicle were unharmed.

I generally think cops are crap, but someone tries to kill you like that, you need to make sure they don't get back up.

When I first saw the video, my main concern was what was the deputy firing at when the bad guy was rushing around the SUV to take them from behind? There was no target? Very bad implementation, very, very bad situational awareness. They should have had three lines of sight on that vehicle, And the guy on the right apparently shot right beside the car exposed himself and should have NEVER been right there in full view , And he ran rather than firing.

10

u/Karl_von_Golum Aug 12 '22

The reason the second deputy ran was because he accidentaly released his mag and had to reload. So he rather did that in cover than in the open

3

u/sapatawa Aug 12 '22

Ah!! Thank you That makes sense. And mag releases are common I found out . I always trained and carried a 1911 style pistol . The safety and mag release can be confused in a hurry

Richard Pryor had a joke about filming Stir Crazy, and seeing all the black men, wasting away in penitentiary. But then after talking to them while filming, being thankful for penitentiaries. This video gives that vibe.

Good riddance to bad rubbish. I'm glad the cops are OK. Too bad the court system didn't take that piece of trash off the streets for good before this happened.

And shitty training

Did you miss the part where the cop shoots at the wrong guy and still misses?

47

u/marsv2000 Aug 12 '22 edited Aug 12 '22

Yup. Start interviewing without clearing the car. No buddy coverage. No target acquisition. Emptied a clip over his buddies head (no zone control)… Just pew pew pew.

No right minded person will miss this POS but can we please have better trained cops?

Depends on the video. The ones which people are upset about tend to have the arrested person not having a gun or assaulting anyone.
