    Default LV Police Chase, Cop Fires Through Own Windshield

    This was from a recent police chase in Las Vegas. The cop was chasing a black SUV, and apparently the SUV fired shots at him as they weave through the streets. Body cam footage shows the cop draw his weapon and, as he gets close, he fires 9 or 10 shots through his own windshield. He later fires another 10-15 shots into the car as it stops.

    No commentary on whether the shots were warranted.

    Saw that on the news last night. Crazy.

    I watched that earlier this morning. I kept thinking throughout that entire video "how do we not have hands free tech for our officers to communicate with dispatch?" Seems like a no-brainer and something that could be readily worked out in the age of "Alexa," "Siri," "Cortana" (lol, has anybody ever actually used Cortana?) and other hands free communication.

    There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese. --Coach Finstock

    Yeah, a little scary to see him darting through traffic with only one hand on the steering wheel, sometimes switching his gun between hands.

    wonder where those shots landed, especially the one handed ones.

    Wow. You can't criticize the outcome, but there's a lot of ways that could have ended up tragic.
