Just shoot the suspect, it's make easier for police, but you can't bring that guy back. I believe they could easily catch that guy without shooting him. Police should save lives, it's include suspected ones too.
Do you speak English? You certainly do not write in English. Illegal perhaps? What would you do if a bus tried to run over you or your buddies?Bravo to the police who protect citizens from raging lunatics.

that just shows how bright you are and watch too much TV. You do not shoot out tires because the driver then has no control over the vehicle and could easily kill someone.
While i agree with the police tactics of killing this individual i have a comment/question for you since you are so rude. The man is driving the bus at police officer as he shoots the man. How is that any different that using spike strips or shooting out tires? How does the dead driver maintain control of the bus?

If you truly are an officer how about trying to explain to people, in a nice way, the situation and options instead of belittling them. You are, after all, a public servant.

Your grammar is just as bad. Does that make you "illegal"?

seems a little too far, let's not forget he paid with his life. i don't expect tears but to find joy of somebody being dead, who you only read three paragraphs about, is sick.

I must ask this took place in Glenwood? How come the Chief from there was not on camera? Maybe he was sitting in his office and doing nothing as he always does.

First nothing like resurrecting a 2 year old issue. second did you not read that this guy rammed police officers and tried to run over others? That's called attempting to kill someone. So you're right that it's plain bullshit what he did. Had the driver succeeded in running over one of the officers or run over an innocent bystander what would you be saying then?
