Criminal Scumbag Fires From Car At Texas Deputy

Another great example of why law enforcement doesn’t get paid enough:

Almost as soon as Boyd approached the car, Ebel, a white supremacist gang member who signed his name “Evil Evan,” began firing at him with a 9mm Smith and Wesson handgun, police have said. Boyd was shot twice in the chest, and a bullet grazed his forehead above the left eye.

Full Story – ABC News

Thankfully the Sheriff’s deputy who got shot lived.  Sadly he’s headed back to work!  That just makes me sick to my stomach.  Cheated death once, and now he’s going back… Bills need to be paid though I suppose and hopefully lightening won’t strike the same spot twice.  Ugh… I need to win powerball so I can make it rain and give guys like that retirement money.

Shit-Just-Got-RealIn case this guy getting shot at wasn’t enough for you, remember when that Ohio scumbag who wanted to die tried to spray and pray those to police officers?

Thoughts?

I thought most cops got 30 days paid leave provided they spoke to a counselor once a week. Guess it’s a department policy?

What I like is that a civilian apparently helped rescue him.

That’s why I don’t do passenger side approaches.

Not being a cop I have to ask. Is it easier to hit you when you are on the passenger side? Is it easier to see the gun on the driver’s side?

Why was the officer’s hand not on his weapon as he approached? Probably would not have made much difference in this case, but I thought that was procedure now. Again, this is coming from someone that has 0 law enforcement background.

There was a study done recently that suggests that passenger side might be a little safer (I haven’t been able to read it yet). I think primarily because there are obstacles for vision and manuvering from the driver’s side to the passenger side.

However, that doesn’t mean that someone who’s already premeditated murder hasn’t already moved/removed those obstacles.

When a perp fires at an officer who’s at the driver’s side, he’s got to get his vision and movement past the “B” post. If he’s going to shoot out the driver’s side, he’s going to have to work for it IMO.

Best part from the linked article.
Smack, Bang.
“The shooting started a 100-mph car chase across two Texas counties during which the car’s occupant continued to shoot at police. The chase ended when the driver was hit by an 18-wheel truck.

Ebel emerged from the wreck and kept shooting at cops until he was cut down by return fire. Ebel was flown to John Peter Smith hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, where he died.”

I don’t know about getting paid too much – 8 of the 10 most dangerous jobs (fatalities per 100k workers) make less (and this doesn’t count pensions, increased job security, and other benefits) – according to BLS.
Those other jobs also don’t make a habit of trampling on peoples rights, expecting special rights and privileges, and acting in ways that increase risk not only to themselves but to those around them (and this doesn’t include things like enforcing bad laws passed by bad politicians).

Amazing bit of honest introspection when you chose your name there, chief.

That invalidates the points how exactly?
I’m not saying violence against police is good, or that steps shouldn’t be taken to reduce their risk to harm – just that they aren’t under-paid based of exposure to risk.
