    So here's a question that I'm not sure justifies its own thread or not (if it does please let me know and I will do so).

    In the film the LEO says at one point that he should've pulled his "Glock .40" and pumped 10 shots into the guy and let him drop. Had the LEO indeed pulled a gun, and the driver had by some miracle or otherwise been able to react and exchange fire, would such a "shooting" be defensible in court? I can only assume, with the video evidence and such, that it might be. Around here I would definitely think so, especially since TX does not have a "must inform" law.

    Opinions from the board? Again, not sure this merits its own thread since A) It relates to a "what-if" from the video and B) I don't want to create a thread that could be wrongly perceived as us talking about "Cop killing" v. justifiable self defense.

    BP... You being of higher caliber and much more intelligent than "That Officer" I would be proud to be stopped by you.....for a traffic violation.
    You're safe. I'm not a cop and therefore don't do traffic stops. So, what caliber are we talking? .45? .40? 9mm? Better not be talking .380 or we are assuredly NOT friends anymore. Hahahahahaha.......

    It is funny how in Anti-gun New York City, the Cops treated CCW holders really well, if you had a license you were good to go.....

    A few years back we had a road raging undercover cop point his gun at a permit holder (without identifying himself as a cop) and scream essentially the same thing (I'm gonna ****ing kill you). The permit holder shot the cop and called 911. End result: nothing happened to the cop and the permit holder lost his permit and got charged with firing a gun inside the city limits. A pretty raw deal, but he fired his good attorney and hired a cheap one.

    Eeeesh.
    Most of the time these "police brutality" videos are banana oil and I side with the officer, but this man is clearly out of control, is acting in a nutty manner.
