Idaho Officer Shot In the Face

February 10, 2011  | 

A Jerome (Idaho) Police officer was shot in the face and the suspect wounded, after a high-speed crash near the city limits, reports NECN.com.

Jerome PD's Officer Dennis Clark attempted to stop Chris Taylor. Taylor, 29, failed to stop and led officers on a five-mile, high-speed pursuit that ended when Taylor lost control of his car and rolled the vehicle into a farm field.

Three Jerome Police officers and one Jerome County Sheriff's deputy were involved in the pursuit during which gunfire was exchanged between Taylor and two police officers.

There has to be a use for retired Police officeers filling in the administrative positions on local departments. Volunteers of course!

Just make sure they have a vest and the right to carry on and off duty, depending on the states laws.

"Idaho Department of Correction officials say Taylor is on probation for two convictions. On July, 12, 2010, out of Twin Falls County, he was given a 10-year sentence for grand theft by possession and a 7-year sentence for possession of a controlled substance. Both sentences were suspended and the court ordered Taylor to serve four years of probation.

Taylor also has a prior felony conviction from 2004. He was given a four-to-five year sentence for eluding a police officer. He was released from prison in July 2008."

So is there some reason invisible to anyone with common sense that a "judge" put this POS on probation instead of behind bars? We might expect such judicial stupidity from left coast states but, Idaho? Scary!
