Cops should have had a better aim.

It seems like trumped up charges and attemped murder by trigger happy police of another citizen. That was his girlfriend's car. They have a baby together. If his attempted murder on her was as simular to the attemped murder of police by pulling out of traffic, it's not convincing. The girl and baby are better off with the father alive.

Yeah, Holly is better off if this pos never beats her or stabs her again. She is due to have their second child in 2 weeks. Hopefully she can live without fear of Steven killing her and her children now! Too bad they didn't have better aim!

What exactly are you smoking? Indiana police have been looking for this man whose girlfriend was stabbed, by him, in the neck and he was driving a stolen vehicle. Added to this was the fact that he aggressively threatened officers. You have some serious problems if you think that it is ok to attack a woman who is the mother of your child. You made such a stupid statement when you said that they would be better off with this lowlife alive. You and people who think like you are why this once great nation is in such peril right now.

Burbank Police looked like a bunch of Yahoos. What a substandard police force...Did you see the Burbank Officer put the publics safety at risk by shooting? Why didnt they just follow the guy instead of provoking a shooting.

I agree with PASADENA RES: shooting in a traffic jam unnecessarily puts innocent drivers at risk. The police should have continued the chase, this old clunker would not have lasted another hour of chase - either be forced to stop by a mechanical problem, tire problem or simply out of gas.
And btw, why do all criminals end up in CA? must be our beautiful weather.

Frank, you must be smoking the medical stuff in Santa Monica. One day, the father will come back and finish the job he started and possibly kill the babies too. I wish you would look at the whole picture.

He's not smoking anything, he's just from LA where the automatic reaction is to give amnesty/sympathy/counseling to bad guys and blame the police for anything and everything that goes wrong.

I have to fault Burbank PD on their handling of this situation. The complete lack of officer safety tactics, the unnecessary escalation of force, the firing on an unarmed individual when he left his vehicle... These situations are why agencies have less-then-lethal options at their disposal. Tasers, bean-bag rounds, chemical agents etc. You didn't see the CHP storm the vehicle when it stopped at the first intersection did you? No. Because they are well trained in pursuit cessation techniques. BPD is very lucky that no innocents or officers were injured or killed. The on-scene officers should get time off without pay and be sent for re-training. The watch commander on duty should be demoted for allowing that fiasco to take place. You blew it BPD!

Burbank PD should have just let the CHP handle it. Burbank PD has it share of problems already being under investigation by the FBI. I thought they would have been smarter than to put the safety of the public at risk by firing in the open like that. Although for attempted murder, I don't feel sorry for the scumbag, legally, there is no reason for any unarmed person to get shot, criminal or not. Pull a weapon, different story. I'm sure the Feds will questions them about this incident also. That police department is in serious need of retraining.

I am amazed at the number of posters on here who fault the police in these cases. No the police are not always right, they are people just like all of us, however I challenge anyone to honestly say that they never ever made a mistake or error in judgment. The Burbank PD got involved because the CHP will hand off to local police if the chase goes into their jurisdiction, which it did.

The police were faced with the reckless driving, the fact that he was in an area with crowded streets and pedestrian traffic. Then he goes into the parking lot of a major tourist attraction. There the guy makes no effort to accede to the police and appears as a threat to them and civilians. What would you have them do?

What would you want he police to do if an armed and crazy acting intruder is in your house with your family. I would want them to do whatever it took to bring the situation to an end with the least damage to innocent victims and bystanders.

An aside to Frank in Santa Monica, you can call me anything you want and it would not be as big of an insult as to call me a politician. I am a patriotic citizen, formerly of Los Angeles (North Hollywood) who only wants logical behavior as much as possible from everyone. That is why I now reside in Iowa because I couldn't take the predominance of incoherent illogical thinkers like yourself. My blood pressure is down and my general mood is much improved now.
