    Nope. The officers will be punished by being given a medal and a commendation.
    Promotion as well. Probably put into SWAT as well because they did some nice groupings with their shots

    @fletch7100 Good grouping? Granted they seem to have been able to hit the massive truck with most shots. That is kind of like say wow good grouping on hitting that barn door with every shot.

    Jesus Christ!
    The Police are a law unto themselves over there aren't they? I dread to think what our lot would be like if they were armed too.

    I actually think our police are pretty good really. Whenever I have had dealings with them I have always found them fair and not aggressive at all. I don't think if we did arm them we would see anything like what we see with the US police.

    American police by comparison seem to assume everyone is armed and at any moment going to attempt to shoot them.

    @glaeken

    My bad not upto date with the protocols of writing Internet sarcasm yet :)

    With grouping its in relation of closeness of each shot fired by the shooter to his aiming point. So 4 close shots at base of the van maybe the warning shots, then those on the right hand window, 3-4 shots close and at roughly head height near centre of the glass. Compared to the other side where the shots are more randomly spread. Off course this is all down to each group being done by a single shooter and not 2 or more cops firing at the same point.

    HAHA - I'm sure you have your Rambo types, but most cops are normal people who don't treat everyone like a psycho killer.

    @ronuds

    No our cops are much more dangerous with some of their ideas. This being the classic

    In 2000, a four-strong team of roller skating officers were introduced to the Royal Parks Constabulary in London's Kensington Gardens.
    Despite promises that they would revolutionise the policing of London's parks, the pilot scheme was abandoned only a few months later.
    There was said to be a fatal flaw in the idea of a skating pursuit. Perpetrators would simply run across the grass, where the skate police could not follow.

    I'm glad my uni didn't need a dedicated emergency notification system.

    Don't get excited, there's not been another massacre, but this seems the appropriate thread for an article about a machine-gun toting maniac who happens to be chief of police: http://www.salon.com/2013/07/24/americas_scariest_police_chief_shoots_libtards_and_forms_militias/

    Worth reading for this wonderful tidbit:

    In 2011, while off duty in a bar, Kessler intervened in a fight and drew his weapon. He shot himself in the hand. “We’re not finding anything that leads to another gun being there,” a state police commander said at the time. “We’re finding there was one gun there and it was (Kessler’s).”

    11 shot in park in Chicago. Youngest victim is three years old.

    Let's see the gun lobby shove their heads deeper into the sand in the name of freedom.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.
