LEO's Ambushed from Traffic stop by AR-15 wielding BG

It's a video, both officers are ok, but both were shot I believe.

Texas
Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.

Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    Are officers taught not to run over individuals in such a situation?

    The car with the broadside view and arrived after he got out and started shooting looked to be in perfect position to crush him between the police car and the shooters car. I know it may just be some Monday morning quarterbacking, but the first reaction I had to the video was 'Run him the eff over'.

    He absolutely would have had the right to.

    Were I on a jury of said officer, I would not convict...
