    Lou Dobbs said that the police probably saved a lot of lives by taking that thug down by whatever means possible.

    They should charge the suspect with damaging government property, specifically a police car, and endangering the officer driving the car by the suspect's disobeying a police order to surrender.

    Great move by the police. Much safer for everyone than a gun battle.

    Exactly! What would he do less excessive? Pull up and honk his horn or hoping this idiot might give him a second and park and get out first?

    What if a road rage situation happens to you and the person gets out of their car and points a gun at you? Wouldn't you use your car as a weapon of deadly force to mow them down if need be?

    I hear people up in arms about this but I wonder if they realize one of the main options that the police have to neutralize a suspect who is an active shooter. This at least gave the man a chance to live.

    I strongly suspect that the "up in arms" people are mostly those who have absolutely no knowledge of the situation, and/or are paid (six-pack, carton of cigs, etc) demonstrators that have zilch knowledge of why they are protesting.:BangHead:

    Which, incidentally, I believe is the case for the majority of demonstrators?!?!
