Washington Standoff Ends Peacefully When Shooting Suspect Surrenders

September 04, 2015  | 

The search for a drive-by shooting suspect turned violent in Yakima, Wash., on Thursday when gunfire broke out, wounding a corrections officer and setting off a 90-minute standoff punctuated by occasional gunshots fired from inside a home containing the suspect, reports the Yakima Herald.

The state Department of Corrections officer, who was serving on a violent crimes task force, suffered a grazing wound, Yakima police spokesman Mike Bastinelli said. She was treated at a local hospital and released later in the afternoon.

"In light of what we have been seeing around the country, this is a relief," Bastinelli said, referring to recent fatal shootings of police officers in Illinois and Texas.

Thank goodness the officer will be ok. These pieces of trash need to be dealt with forthwith.

Why did this criminal live? Because he surrendered. Was suspect black or white? It doesn't matter. He didn't get into a police car and assault the officer. He didn't walk down the street pointing a gun at police. He complied. Wow, what an idea. Comply and save your life. We need to start teaching this to the 3% of black males committing 50 percent of the major crimes. What a neat idea. JUST COMPLY. Police are good people. just a few, very few are bad. Trust me, you don't want the police to stop doing their jobs because the criminals and thugs will be running your life and I know you don't want that. Why are we afraid to stop this 3% of criminal? because they are black and it would be considered racist. Tough Tarts, stop them before they do more harm. American people need to say stop this madness now. If 50 percent of bank robberies were committed by3% of white males between the ages of 15 and 40, would you allow it to continue or start meeting and planning to stop it. Protect Police
