Why, with a car headed right for him, didn't the officer unload his weapon into this guys head?

Maybe he didn't want to do the paperwork, besides do you know how messy brains get? I'll tell you a secret right now gray matter goes every where there's not much blood at all but it makes a mess and the
person who forehead just disappeared well his facial expression doesn't change.
Than when it's all done the poor cop got paper work hearing and a lifetime of seeing that guy's brains fly everywhere.

Nothing gets a quicker, or a bigger response from the police as a call for an officer getting into a scrap with the public. Every cop in a 20 mile radius will endanger the general public as he speeds towards the altercation; throwing caution to the wind.
I suppose to the cops way of thinking, once someone dares to assault a cop; it calls for drastic measures. If an innocent motorist or two, or a pedestrian, gets struck and killed by a recklessly driven police car that is speeding towards the altercation; it is a small price to pay in order to come to your fellow officers aid.
And, once the boys in blue do arrive; if the offender is still on his feet; he should expect to be either shot and killed on sight; or at the least, be the victim of an all out police beating. A beating that will be passed off as being completely necessary.
As in the case of a man who intially eluded the police in a car chase down in Alabama (I believe) last year. The man had apparently driven straight at a cop, and the cop was forced to dash out of the way. The man eluded the police at first; but crashed and was thrown from his car; where he lay unconsciuos. When the responding officers finally arrived at the scene; 4 or 5 of them were caught on video beating the unconscious man. Their defense? He was resisting arrest!
I was on Main Street when the call went out and you are right, I did see a cruiser almost take out two cars by Dunkin Donuts and then another one in the intersection by Store 24. I would estimate the fricken speed at no less than 80 MPH - and I'm not exagerating.

Sprague,
I like the way your mind works! You bring up an EXCELLENT POINT. If we simply allowed our LEO's to fire on any vehicle that is speeding towards them; you can rest assured that innocent people will die.
We all learned a very valuable lesson in Boston a few back; right after the Sox won the world series. The cops had gotten themselves all juiced up for a real altercation with the celebrating public. Some dimwitted cop started firing pepper spray into a crowd of people; and Patricia Snellgrove was shot and killed. Of course; she was simply an innocent bystander; who was doing nothing whatsoever wrong; so she did not deserve to be shot to death that day. Needless to say; the cops quickly passed the whole thing off as an honest mistake; and no charges were filed against Snellgove's murderer. And, the Snellgrove family buried their only daughter.
So, clearly, we need to keep close tabs on how the police handle what they percieve as being a threat. We do not want more innocent people dying; while the cops respond with a "woops".
She was killed accidentally with a less-lethal round. Its not like they blasted her with a 12-gauge. It was a freak accident. She probably would have survived if the ambulance could have gotten through the crowd of drunken idiots that night. There is plenty of blame to go around, dont toss it all on BPD. Besides, you are clearly concerned about all of this...her name was Victoria, not Patricia.

Darn Tootin, i think u are hilarious. I have seen a lot of comments from you in the past and u continue to make me laugh everytime I read them. I think it's great that u get to "monday morning QB" and you are so all-knowing when it comes to the law. Great job, seriously. How would the cops know they were doing something wrong if you weren't around to tell them on the Sentinel Blog?? I say keep up the good work, and great job!
Great Work,

I thank you for your comments regarding my work here on Topix Forum Fitchburg. And, I am glad that you find humor in my postings. As Reader's Digest has been telling us for years; humor is the best medicine.

Topix Forum is an excellent site for people to be able to voice their opinions on things; while remaining completely anonymous. And, when you start pointing out some of the outrages that are happening virtually every single day regarding the nation's law enforcement officers; it is wise to remain anomymous. After all, the cops don't always play fair; especially when their dirty laundry starts getting aired out for the whole world to see!

It brings me great joy to be able to put our lawmen under the microscope. Again, thanks for your input!

Thanks for the input. I am glad that you not only saw what happened; but you came forward and shared what you witnessed with the Topix Forum Readers.

I think that anyone who is paying attention to such things has seen a cop or two driving recklessly and endangering the public; somewhere along the way. I have seen it many times, myself.

Again, thanks for contributing your observations.

I'm not knocking the police, I'm knocking the posters advice that the police should fire their weapons into a civilian vehicle without knowing whos in the vehicle or what their issue is. It would make more sense to gat out of the way. As far as making quick life or death decisions I've made plenty, I worked most of my lifeas a roofer and believe me it's a VERY dangerous job. When you go out on a roffing job you don't know if you'll be seeing yor wife and kids agin. Over the years I've lost 3 brother roofers to death in the line of duty and seen many others wounded to the point they could'nt do the job anymore. I'd like to see you carry 2 bundles of shingles up a 40 feet ladder with fuul toolbelt .

A cop hits me while driving recklessly they better have a bunch of lawyers behind them! I will sue them till the idiot looses his/her job... I won't stop till I've had a piece of everyone...

This morning there was a cop doing his traffic control. He was in the middle lane going 65 MPH with a trail of traffic behind him backed up for over three miles...riding their brakes, swerving in and out of traffic... Tell me that the police are looking out for our safety? What a joke, he was causing more of a hazard then it was worth.

Hi Carol,

I thank you for offering your input and your observations. I firmly believe that when a Mass State cop is driving at exactly 65 mph; especially in the center lane of the highway; that he is doing two things:

1) He is waiting to catch an impatient driver as he or she simply attempts to drive at the normal highway speed of 75 - 80 mph.

2) He is getting some pleasure from knowing that he is messing with the honest Taxpayers; as they attempt to drive on our overcrowded highways and get to work; to earn an honest living. You see; the Mass State cop IS ALREADY AT WORK; while most other travelers out on the highways are ATTEMPTING TO GET TO WORK. The cops seem to get great pleasure out of screwing up people's commutes.

Certainly; the Mass State cop who is driving at exactly 65 mph out on the highway is up to something. We know damn well that these blowhards are typically driving at speeds of 85 to 95 mph out on our highways; as they tailgate everyone in their path. So, the Mass State cop who is driving at a sane speed out on our highways is not to be treated lightly.

Easy there, short, fat and stupid. Are you trying to say that anyone who would dare lay a hand on one of our beloved blueboys, or a fair-haired flatfoot, or a loveable lawman, or a precious policemen, MUST be scum? That seems awfully close minded to me!
