Video: Bank Robbery Suspect Shot, Killed on Live TV

VIDEO: Fatal Shootout in Los Angeles County

A bank robbery suspect led Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies in a high-speed pursuit Friday that ended with a deadly shootout on a Lancaster cul-de-sac.

The hour-long police pursuit began after police and sheriff's deputies spotted a dark SUV connected to the morning robbery of a Bank of America branch in Saugus.

The SUV driver pulled off the freeway after officers used a spike strip, and stopped after officers surrounded the vehicle. The suspect exited the SUV, appeared to surrender, and then opened fire on deputies, who shot and killed him, reports the Los Angeles Times.

The incident was broadcast live on Southern California television.

If CA had more liberal CCW laws on the books, crime would drop drastically. Instead the liberals in the state government banned the open carry of UNLOADED handguns and then did the same for long guns. I'm sure the criminal element will be more than happy to comply with the new laws and carry their unloaded guns in locked cases.

Liberal thinking that results in nonsense, illogic, reward for bad behavior and laws that defy logic seem to abound in CA. The statement "Only in America" often stated by Yakov Smirnoff should be changed to "Only in California." Sadly, other states are behaving like CA.

Now in reference to the news story...... Great Job protecting yourselves and going home to your families. Good guys win another fight which is what we want to see !!!!
