I think you're wasting your time debating with GoUVA. He/she is obviously one of those people who bake chocolate chip cookies and takes them to the various award banquets for the police agencies around here each year.
Did you hear what the feds did recently? They ruled that half of all use of force charges or incidents were the result of "contempt of cop".
quote: "Because there is no official charge for 'contempt of cop,' officers often explain the interaction by charging the person with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and/or assaulting an officer," the Justice Department said.
I have a strong feeling this is exactly what happened in Culpeper. Mrs Cook didn't like the rookie's attitude and proceeded to drive off. Driving off was "contempt of cop", punishable by street justice and the death penalty.
I have seen it more than most, I honestly believe this future ex-cop could not tolerate the insult to his belief in his "absolute authority" over this women, and killed her for it. I once saw an off duty cop tease a guy, who was a civilian friend of his and when the friend teased him back, the cop absolutely lost his mind for about 30 seconds when he realized the gesture was witnessed by a few of his fellow cop buddies. If he had been armed at the time, I believe someone could have died in that 30 seconds, and the focus of this cop's belligerence was a friend of his, could you imagine if it was someone he had in custody? Many, and I do mean many, but not all cops have a very warped view of their position in our society, some truly believe they are the law, and are above the rest of us, and can therefor only socially interact with other cops, if anyone at all. They are truly more dangerous than the thugs in the hood, because they are everywhere, and usually get away with it.

The Associated Press really dropped the ball on reporting of this story! They only printed a select part of the story and failed to mention that there were witnesses to this killing.

Another article was posted in St. Louis, MO (a little farther away than Richmond, VA - where this AP office is located) that has a few more details than this article.

One can only hope the facts and truth are presented at the Grand Jury hearing.
My thoughts and prayers go out to family and friends of Mrs. Cook.

Murder? If the woman would have killed the law enforcement officer, it would have been murder. However she chose to drag him down the road. Google Trooper Todd Blanton, Henrico, VA. He was killed in the same type of "incident"....Kudos to the officer from Culpepper for doing what he had to do...to protect his life.
manual window, how slow do you have to be to move your hand?... Basic training for all officers - do not put your hand in the window.

Jeep had manual windows, how slow are you moving to not get you hand out of the way? Basic police training, never put your hand in the window.
