Shooting at Police officer while in chase

It is really a bad idea, to shoot at the police patrol car while in pursuit.

I would call it a terrible reload, but now they have something to show in the academy on how NOT to do a reload.

It sure shows you how stress can effect what we think we might do. I have only been in a similar situation one time and hope I am never there again. It caused me to run through a barbed wire fence and have to be stitched up. It is important we train and then practice what we were trained.

I remember this incident when it occurred. I kept wondering about shooting without hearing protection in a confined space. The officer's ears must have been ringing for a while.

The reload was way off, but I doubt officers train to reload from the drivers seat in a sitting position.

IIRC, both perps did not survive contact with the police.

I was concerned he would lose control of his car with the one handed steering at high speed.

Whew. That was intense.

As long as you're good at designing underpowered carbines, you'll only get about 8 years for it. I'm not sure that it's something to count upon, though.

Meaning no disrespect, but what the heck does that have to do with the above police pursuit? Or am I missing something?

Look up the M1 carbine. Interesting story from a very different era.

What is the relationship between designing an underpowered carbine and a police pursuit involving shots fired at the officer? I did not hear in the video any mention of a carbine.

Sorry if I do not understand something you think is obvious.

"Carbine" Williams, a notorious local bootlegger, fled from deputies at his still in mid 1921 and fired over his shoulder as he ran, killing one of the deputies. He was caught and given 30-life at hard labor. While in prison, he developed several vital firearms technologies, and the US government appealed to the governor of NC for a commutation of his sentence in 1927. He was released in 1929, and went on to design the M1 carbine, among other weapons, and is the father of the short stroke gas piston.

There's actually a James Stewart movie about his life.

So while it's not related to the chase at hand, it is an interesting and rather bizarre similar incident, albeit from a very different time.

There is absolutely no similarity between the two stories.

You know, the first couple times I watched this back when it happened I never realized how many other units were in pursuit when the chase ended. I always thought that officer was pretty brave to be exiting his car into that (still do), but now seeing all the backup he had makes me feel better about his choice.

And yes, the reload made me cringe.
