The Shooter should be executed.

Scum like that should not be allowed to live.

Taser was not a good choice for a guy with a heavy coat.

Stupid woman freaking out at the scene didn't help at all....

Prayers for Quincy .....he's lucky to be alive. Next time I hope he pulls his gun instead of the tazer.

That rotating header coming at them might make them consider getting the f'ck out of the way.

Candid pic shows full belt, no vest. Too many officers I know are of the opinion that if it is their time; kevlar won't save them. I am no expert but my belief is a vest on an officer is like wearing a seat belt in a car...it seems a bit foolish not to especially since the gear is provided free of charge to everyone on the force.

He looks like he's dressed as an investigator, not a patrol officer.

Investigators don't usually wear vests.
