Wow, that video is scary. I can't imagine just being in an OIS and then having these horrible parasites of society running up on me before the shooter is even in custody. This officers should be commended at the highest level, their cool compsure was amazing. On top of that the shooter apparently ditched the gun among his friends and so it's somewhere in the hostile crowd behind them!

This a wake up call to what can happen and how quickly it can go from bad to worse. Crime scene was completely lossed but they had no choice and did everything they could to survive the situation. Something to think about for those of us on the job.

PS would've loved to see the party cans, PR-24s and less-lethal deployed by arriving officers on the crowd, tottally justified!

These idiots make it worse. No wonder it takes so long to get medical one wants to deal with these idiots (I liked the parasites comment). Hats off to these officers who kept calm. Where is a police dog for crowd control when you need them?

Note to scumbags "don't run from police"

I noticed after reading the full article, that someone left a teddy bear, and flowers where this poor killer died. This incident again shows how screwed up segments of our society have become. The crowd has no idea why this guy was shot or what type of criminal he was. They apparently assume the police over reacted. The officers were lucky that there were several of them on the scene. What would it have been like if a lone officer had been involved with such a hostile crowd? This incident is not an indictment of the police but of the people in this neighborhood as they apparently identify with this dead killer and is probably safe to say they are scumbags themselves.

Well, that piece of shit got what he deserved. I don't care what he did, he shot at cops and was trying to evade arrest. The cops did exactly what they were trained to do. Now wait until his mama comes on TV and says" he was such a good boy, why the police do him like that". I don't care what race this guy was, he's a parole at 19, has a long criminal record already and was firing a weapon at the police over a fare evading. We are better off without this guy running the streets. Who knows what else this guy has done.

Another pos bites the dust
Oh well that will be the last report you will have to write on that dirt bag

John Russell @ 7/19/2011 6:26 PM

THis reminds me exactly of the Bart Train incident..but seems very suspiscious that more and more Kids are getting shot by POLICE every day...? Also number of COPS getting killed by AK-47s is going up too...Well when no more gasoline or Wal-marts exist guess you COPS willbe on yolur own cause luxury of life is only thing protecting your crimes now...? Look at Mexico...?

John Russell: love your conspiracy theory, you must have sureveillance cameras around your house, sleep with one eye open and think the world is against you. Fact; your one dimensional, and have no clue what you are talking about. You must be one of the many who believe everything you see on TV. Well, I am here to tell you that your basisless comments are not only unintelligible, but your emotional control is obvioulsy a serious concern. You sir should make comments based on facts. Why is it the media portrays these as the officer's fault? It's called ratings. The higher the ratings, the more money they bring in, its called profitable business. They do not care about the public, you or anyone but their wallets. Another question, why is it that you never here the outcome of the investigation months after the incident? When the officers are cleared and the evidence shows the suspect made the decision for the officers to shoot, it doesn't make for good TV, therefore it's not profitable for them to show, unless the officer's were at fault. I think you need to educate yourself on Law enforcement procedures, use-of-force laws and the right of officers to defend themselves. Until you educate yourself and know all of the facts, then you can comment, but until then, I think you should take your sewer of a mouth someplace else. Good day to you sir...

The crowd at the shooting acts just like these bunch of animals.

Mark @ 7/29/2011 6:56 PM

I agree with a portion of your article, especially with how liberal cities like SF have caused police to hole up and not be proactive due to the intense ability for the public to make complaints that can cause you to lose your job (Office of Citizens Complaints). Not to mention a Police Commission made up of citizens that at the end of the day have a say on Police Officer's jobs. However, I think the 4-5 cops you see on scene did the best they could do. A couple of things to think about; look how many "angry bystanders" there are compared to the cops, the location they are in is the worst in the city. If they did take any action to get people to back up (pepper spray, baton strikes, physically moving them) they would have had a riot on hand and were clearly out numbered. So, its easy to monday morning quarterback this incident but I highly disagree that these officers were hesitant at all. They all work in the worst district in SF and deal with shootings on a daily basis, and they are some of the most proactive officers SF has.

Well said Mark

This is a great example of how far our society has fallen with liberal law makers, soft judges that want to be popular so they can be re-elected, and just the general mindset of generations growing up not to respect anyone or anything. The sad part is if one of these officers took the initiative to tell the crowd to back up, shut up or move on, they probably would have had an escalated situation and would have had some BS disciplinary action against them for not being polite. It's scary the way our society is beginning to actually accept outward defiance against Police Officers as being acceptable behavior.

"When people who don't know you kill you because of the uniform you wear, ther's a word for that. It's called "war". Lt. Col. Dave Grossman. You witnessed that video madness because: We as a society have taught people to live off our government through entiltlements, make excuses for your mistakes and all the other liberal point of views. We have created the mess by electing liberal politicians. Ask yourself this one question, Which polticial party controls politics in any major city in America? Then ask yourself why is every city filled with corruption and crime. And to you John Russell this is not the Bart incident so why don't you move to Mexico, I'll even buy you the ticket!

deportega @ 8/21/2011 10:31 PM

The investigation later showed that the "dumb ass" actually shot himself drawing his gun out of waist

@ Scott well played sir, well played.

John Russel @ 9/23/2011 7:37 AM

Imagine if AKs and guns were dropping out of the sky on this scene ?? Look like Beruit with these Maniacs in 5 seconds...quote"".Hey you Hey you keep yelling and you will go back to jail for the HMMMM 50the time Maurice"...USA is all screwed up! This is inner city in every part of the USA ...Total Nut Houses..

That is normal in any "hood" .

Every stone cold killer who get a cop bullet is instantly O J Simpson to the hood.

Big cities are FULL of evil creep low life welfare types, that is what Honrady Zombie max is made for when the S.H.T.F

You will be shooting them by the hundreds in the next MONSTER riot, sad to say but the Rodeny King riot is gonna be small compared to the next BIG one.

These punks outnumber the good black and minority citizens of the hood 10 to 1.

All those young black guys You see acting up in this clip are ALL fatherless !!! They have had no guidance , now they are fed hate and pay back as a way to keep them distracted and helpless.

They are 100% self destructive, they were all good kids at one time, it's so sad no one loved them and raised them properly as kids and now they are all grown up and ready to go crazy on society .

I hear 2nd hand that there is 40% rise in gang members in the last 10 years !!!

The remedy is Mr Jessie Lee Peterson at WWW.BONDINFO.ORG
