Police Shoot Denver Teen Who Struck Officer with Stolen Car

January 27, 2015  | 

Denver police shot and killed a 16-year-old girl who allegedly struck and injured an officer with a stolen car early Monday. 

Authorities did not identify the teen who was shot, but friends identified her as Jessica Hernandez, Fox News reports.

Police said that one officer was responding to a call for a suspicious vehicle in an alley at around 6:30 a.m. local time. A second officer arrived after it was determined that the car had been stolen. In a statement, police said the two officers then "approached the vehicle on foot when the driver drove the car into one of the officers."

White said both officers then opened fire. The officer hit by the car was taken to a hospital with a leg injury.

Having been involved in a stolen vehicle incident and having the perp attempt to back up and hit me I can only say that good reflexes saved me. He was caught a short time later, driving the vehicle.

I have had my foot run over once and a vehicle driven at me which missed. First subject I pulled through the window of the vehicle as he was trying to drive away, the second got caught by Detroit Police after he rammed one of their vehicles, the original charge was shoplifting by the time he was done he had three felonies. I am sorry that the teenager was killed but what was she doing to the officers.

Good job! Good reflexes and a prompt solution to a problem that could only lead to litigation. Since we have an adversarial system, tax money would require the assignment of an attorney for the deceased. Her family would then make an appeal to feckless liberals who would then concoct a "what if" story about the wonderful achievements the deceased might have achieved during her life were she not killed by the LEO. With the right kind of liberal wimps selected for the jury that could easily have an agenda against LEOS, an adjudication could come down for millions of our tax dollars. FACTS: She stole a car: Grand Theft Auto and tried to kill a LEO. Self Defense. Unhappy Wimps.

Don't try to harm the police, everybody goes home (jail) safe and sound.
