    Default Rambo trains a rookie

    The area this took place is the most heavily traveled road system in Oregon.

    Looks like shooting out your windshield isn’t as effective as having other units ahead of the fleeing vehicle. Forty shots.

    The Vancouver officer’s shots didn’t appear to wound Bossy. It’s unclear if they hit anyone in the fleeing truck

    oh come on, itís just .223. What he needed was a remote gyro stabilized roof mounted .50. Or a Hellfire missile from a helicopter. 110mph in a pickup sounds dangerous.

    Back in the day, they managed to perforate Bonnie & Clyde with 1930s weapons ( BAR, rifles, shotgun ). What's the problem with today's police?

    I wonder if he had trained for that kind of shooting or was winging it. I don’t see how one could be confident the rounds wouldn’t endanger others.

    It’s the shooting through the window that gets me, wouldn’t that be kinda loud and messy?

    I'm going to go with "eff the gun-fetishists who have escalated the level of armament available to the general population, requiring law enforcement to escalate its own AND given them reasonable cause to fear for their own lives in all such encounters"

    Not as catchy, but more accurate I think.

    Having said that.... this particular cop needs to ride the rest of his career out behind a desk.
    No adversary is worse than bad advice.
