cops can't win: witness Uncommon and princebytor. If they had let him run the incessant screeching would be about how cops needlessly endangered innocent people instead of stopping him before he got started.

The only problem I see went wrong in this incident, is that the two bullets fired didn't hit both perpetrators in the head. Sure would save US taxpayers some money instead of housing them in prison. Neither one is obviously fit to prosper within our society any longer

There's a shopping center, a highway, and a high school athletic field all close enough to the courthouse to be in harms way of a ricochet. This wasn't justified, it was whitewashed.

I thought what the deputies did was perfectly fine. There is never a large amount of people by the court house. shooting out the tires was certainly better than a high speed chase which the police may have had to give up for the safety of citizens had they got out of the lot. These criminals are hard to arrest. they have no address. they shack with a woman to avoid personal responsibility and stay under the radar. Plus she they actually had drugs in the car in the courthouse lot!!!!. He knew he had warrants and had his dumb driver waiting in the get away car. the sad part is all the money it cost's the tax payers. We had two crime scene vehicles and probably at least 4 officers from BCI in town to make sure it was OK to shoot the tires out??? i'm al good with it but that's the part I don't understand. I can see it if some one was actually shot.

Think these young trigger happy cops need to get some ACTUAL tactical training and instruction on where and when NOT to discharge your weapon!!

This isn't Call of duty on a video game kid!!!

REAL people can be killed!!

Innocent bystanders could have been killed by your poor aim or a riccochet!!

This was some VERY poor judgement and only goes to show how trigger happy these young cops are today!!
