    Default Got caught in the traffic resulting from this today

    Happened on the highway I travel between Victorville and San Bernardino. Crazy.

    last time i drove through there a few months ago the highway was shut down because someone was standing on an overpass threatening to jump into traffic

    folks caught in the ensuing snarl were viciously unkind
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I wonder whether it was an abduction. What's the possibility they planned it?
    A society predicated on the assumption that everyone in it should want to get rich is not well situated to become either ethical or imaginative.

    Doubt we will ever know since all the parties are dead now. There was only one weapon found at the scene though (afaik) so not sure how justified shooting the girl was. The whole thing sounds like a mess.

    The article referenced in the OP, indicates it was a domestic dispute - the parents were divorcing, so the guy killed his wife and grabbed the daughter. She, apparently, ran toward the police, dressed in 'tactical gear' - was assessed as a threat and shot / later died. Sad all around . . . .

    They’ll find another gun to justify shooting the victim. Tactical gear, is that like the sunglasses and flashlights as seen on tv?

    No.

    The cops had no way of knowing she wasn't a threat - what I read, full tactical and headgear. Have to wonder if dad had her suit up for just that reason.

    Fk the police.
    Hmmmm.... wonder if you'll call them, when you need help? You shouldn't.

    #2: I recall a number of years ago a woman was threeatening to jump from a Seattle bridge and traffic ( terrible, normally ) was just completely snarled. Frustrated drivers were heard leaning out of their car windows urging her to jump, already. I forget how the incident eventually played out.

    San Bernardino County Sheriff’s investigators strongly suggest that a teenager killed in a shootout with deputies may have fired at them during a vehicle pursuit of the missing girl and her fugitive father.
    Looks like a CYA situation.

    Maybe. But *someone* was firing out the back window, during the pursuit. Seems 'possible' it was her.
