    A father's attempt to teach his son a lesson for taking his truck without permission ended in tragedy Monday after a local police officer shot the teenager dead.
    James Comstock told the Des Moines Register he called the police on his son Tyler after the latter took the former's truck in retaliation for refusing to buy him cigarettes.
    Ames Police Officer Adam McPherson reportedly spotted the lawn care company vehicle and pursued it onto the Iowa State University campus, where a brief standoff ensued after Tyler allegedly refused orders to turn off the engine.
    McPherson eventually fired six shots into the truck, two of which struck Tyler who was later pronounced dead.
    The official report claims the action was necessary in order "to stop the ongoing threat to the public and the officers."
    Tyler's dad says he was unarmed at the time.

    When will people learn NOT to call the cops on family members? Someone always ends up shot by a cop.

    "Well, the kid was a threat to the public, so officer Fife dispatched six bullets into the cab of the truck. I asked officer Fife why he didn't shoot out the tires on the vehicle. He said, 'cause I used them all up on the cab.' Case closed."

    Watch the video.

    The kid puts the entire community at risk of serious injury or death with his reckless driving and assault against the police.

    The kid asked for it.

    TY police. :coffee:

    that is the equivalent to the argument: when are women going to be smart enough not to walk home alone at night in short skirts?


    the kid was a moron, certainly. however, this shoot first mentality/protocol among many (not all) american policemen is entirely out of control.

    TPTB always seem to tell the public how they're going to fuck you before they do. It's part of their code of conduct I suppose.

    but doctor drew says if your son is on heroin, you should load his car up with some and call the cops on him. i doubt anything could go wrong in that situation.

    Any video on this incident yet? If the kid was gunning the engine and an officer was in front of the vehicle then its a good shoot. If the kid simply left the engine on and was idling then there is some explaining to do.

    It appears the kid rammed various police cars at significant speed in more than one instance. In fact, in the following dash cam video it looks like he hits one black and white pretty hard right before he got ventilated. There are pieces of car flying everywhere. FF to 1:30 for the shoot.

    There's no excuse for police brutality, but by the same token, you have to view each incident objectively.
