    Score one for the cops[/B] ..... Cape May Police Officer Scott Krissinger admits that he had “a million things going†through his head Monday night when he pulled up next to a burning truck on Sunset Boulevard in West Cape May. But fortunately for the man trapped inside the vehicle,

    Krissinger didn’t dwell on those thoughts and acted immediately. “I just remember the smoke coming out,†Krissinger said. “I couldn’t see anything.’ Krissinger sprinted towards the vehicle, pulled the unconscious driver out to safety and then ran back to check if there were any other passengers inside.

    “When I went to the passenger seat, again, I couldn’t see anything,†Krissinger said. The incredible rescue was captured on the dashboard cam of Krissinger’s patrol vehicle

    He didn’t hesitate,†said Cape May Police Captain Rob Sheehan. “He’s a hero in every sense of the word and we’re very happy to have him as a member of our department.â€

    Krissinger, a seven-year veteran, insists however that he was merely doing his job. “I think any of the officers at the Cape May Police Department would’ve done the same thing,†Krissinger said. “I truly do. It just happened to me.â€

    The driver, identified as 61-year-old Gerald Ferrill of Mays Landing, was taken to the hospital where he is in critical, but stable condition. Witnesses told police that he was driving his truck with a flat tire and strange sounds were coming from the engine area prior to the fire.

    “I would have to think the driver didn’t have much longer to stay in that situation without facing serious bodily injury,†Captain Sheehan said. “We’re very proud of him, obviously. He’s a credit to law enforcement as a whole.â€

    Despite being hailed a hero, Krissinger remains humble, saying “I think there are heroes every day,†he said. “I just happned to be caught on camera doing it.â€

    If that was the CHP they would have called the Local Fire Dept. set up road blocks to keep traffic out and set up a perimeter around the burning vehicle. If the Fire Dept. got there in time to save someone then all the better.

    Or

    If the occupant of the vehicle was on fire then rushed out of the burning vehicle towards the CHP or Sheriffs he/she would have been shot multiple times with the excuse form the cops that he was a threat to the officers on the scene.

    HDP and/or the Harris County Sheriff's Office would've shot the truck and arrested to man or would've shot both the truck and the occupant and claimed that he was endangering officer's lives with a burning vehicle. "He charged at us with a truck that was on fire, we had no other choice. We also found a machete in the passenger seat."

    This. The chief of police flew a guy up in the air. He missed a day without pay.

    I reserve judgement until I see a picture of the victim.

    *Google searched*

    He flashed an id. The cop didn't know what one looked like. Typical speeding stop to dead on the ground in handcuffs. Routine. Look at how threatening he was.

    Every Houston police officer has a duty to protect the public — and the power to use deadly force to carry out that responsibility.

    A Houston Chronicle investigation shows that police officers in the fourth largest city in America meted out that force at least 121 times in shootings in the last five years. More than a quarter of the civilians who were shot in that timeframe were unarmed.

    HPD officers killed 52 civilians in those shootings from 2008 to 2012. But no officer was charged with criminal wrongdoing despite questionable shootings such as the unarmed double amputee killed in a wheelchair....

    Yeah, the police can pull people to form the grand jury, former cops are usually picked. The good ol' boy system in full effect down here.
