Timmy has a very twisted sense of logic. He likes to complain about Fitchburg and how the city spends it's tax dollars, yet he's not a taxpayer. In summary, he's an idiot.
I may be an idiot, but at least I was smart enough to move out of Fitchburg! So, what does that make you?
I have every right to complain about Fitchburg because I manage a business in Fitchburg and there is plenty of tax money involved (although I am sure you live in a fabulously expensive house that pays more property taxes than anyone not as smart as you are). As soon as I finish school (another degree for this idiot) I won't be working in Fitchburg either, and I will avoid this city like the plague that it is. Until then you will have to continue to feel inadequate next to my superior intellect!

I do not know these girls! I am asking; when the officers knew that this car was not stopping, why did they physically step in front of it?
I will be happy with this question logically answered. The problem is that it cannot be answered with logic!
If these girls were arrested I would say yes put them in jail! Killing them is overkill,PERIOD!
WHile you have good points, 1 arguement I have to make is.. The FPD couldnt make the arrest because these Crazies wouldnt pull over. I dont know what Tasca did or didnt do. 500.00 or 5000.00 the BIG issue is that they put innocent lives in danger with their recklessness

Are you insinuating that everyone who lives in Fitchburg are idiots? Nice, coming from a 'supposed' business manager. Oh, it's McDonalds you manage, I shouldn't expect an intelligent answer. Here's a news flash for ya, when people buy things from the business you 'supposedly' manage, it's not YOU paying the tax, it's your customer.

I understand that these women didn't stop for the police! We don't even know the name of the shooter! It is like the Tasca deal where they have totally illegally withheld information on the ILLEGAL deal that they reached!

Their are anticorruption laws, this is public information! They knew who these girls were and they knew they were not stopping for police that night! The public deserves this information. Yesterday in NY the same thing happened this time the cops told the kid to drive away while another officer jumped on the hood and fired two shots into the kids head!

We need laws in place that dissallow an officer to discharge his firearm into a vehicle as they put their physical bodies in front of speeding cars. What are they doing stepping in front of moving vehicles?? This sounds like Iraqi training!

Did this officer just attend the FPD shooting practice event where they discussed shooting at vehicles that want stop and then to justify the shooting? We need to know the facts so the guessing will stop.

Did the shooting officer have complaints against him made by either one of these girls? They knew these girls before they shot!

No justification? She robbed a store, tried running over cops in Rindge, NH after running from police in three different towns, just to end up back in Fitchburg where she rammed several police cruisers with her car sending three Fitchburg officers to the hospital. Justified all day long. I for one am glad they shot her.
How many times have you been arrested, Tim?? Don't worry, I'm sure it was someone else's fault.
How many ARMED robberies this year and unarmed where there was a police chase but NO SHOOTING after a robberry ??? Why doesn't the city give the officers name? Did this cop and the dead girl have prior contact?? Was there a sexual harrassment complaint between the two prior?

They knew who the girls were who stole the $177 before shooting into the car. One of the bullets could of killed an innocent bystander! Did this officer attend the FPD shooting practice session two days prior?

Why does this town hide the answers? What were the TASCA terms??

Does it matter? Why does everyone keep bringing up TASCA? This has NOTHING to do with him. This was a matter that could have caused more harm that what happened. I'm sure all cops had contact with the dead WOMAN (not a girl, I dont understand the logic behind that either, she was 40!!) given her lengthy rap sheet - but again, doesnt matter. She was driving a VEHICLE that is considered a weapon, especially when driven recklessly and with intent to endanger somebody.

Do you sit at home wondering all day how the "system" is screwing you over? I'm proud of FPD and the courage it took to shoot someone. It could have been a small child or innocent bystander they tried to take out. Of course, you'd be complaing too if that happened anyways.

There are some people in this world who like to hear their own voice/see their own comments. You fall into that category.

I don't beleive that these two were looking to flee the country with $170. Because they are well known and there is a description of the vehicle the best course of action would have been to wait until they arrived at their crack den and arrest them all. I'm certain the police know exactly where all the crack dealers live. If they don't they should be more observant. A few tips, if suspicious people are going in and then out of a residence at all hours of the night that may be a hot spot. If you see an expensive car with tinted windows and fancy rims owned by someone who has never had a job you might want to keep an eye on them.

As you may have noted, I didn't give the name of the business or the names of any customers, so I don't think calling the residents of Fitchburg idiots is going to have any effect on business. I would say a large portion of our customers come from outside of Fitchburg, since most people living in Fitchburg don't have enough money to afford it. Sure there are a couple of nicer parts of Fitchburg, but a smarter person would live in a smaller house in a nicer town, since Fitchburg has such a high crime rate and idiots running the government. Being nice to junkies and mental defectives on an anonymous forum will have absolutely no effect on business.

The bottom line is that cops that aren't idiots could have stopped a Hyundai Sonata quite easily without resorting to shooting anyone in the head. Fitchburg is filled with mental defectives from the mayor on down to the underage junkies. If you are smart and you care about your family, you must flee Fitchburg as fast as you can!

He won't tell you what business it is, because it only exits in his head! Clearly, he is quite dillusional.

Eagle problems? Are eagles now attacking new officers in the downtown area? Are the residents of Fitchburg safe from such attacks? and why are these eagles only targeting the new officers? Honestly, this might be funniest thing I've seen on here! I can live with a typing mistake but this isn't even close. Eagle problems!! Ha!!!

The fact is that these officers were doing their job. It could have been you or your loved one in danger. And by the way NO officer would want their lives changed around because of two lunatics. They just did what they had to do at the moment. May God help these officers.. I commend you all. Keep your head high!
