    Anyone watched the videotape shooting of a lawyer outside a courthouse in LA yet?
    WOW!
    Makes me sick to watch...

    Is it lawyer season again, so soon....

    I guess I should act like a responsible adult and say something like thats terrible, etc.
    But after all it was a lawyer, not a person.
    (should now be CharlieRFD,past,Pres.), but I've had this screen name for so long, I'm keeping it..., besides I'm Deputy Chief now.
    BE SAFE OUT THERE

      Well there is one lawyer who is glad that his client didn't have a membership at the local gun club.

      Not that I really wanted to see the shark get shot, but I have to ask: How the hell did the nutcase miss him? Shooting Point Blank from 2' away around a 10" tree trunk, and he still didn't get hit?

      Lucky, Lucky, Bastard!

      That Dep Sheriff sure cleaned the gunman's clock on the takedown though. That one should make the NFL highlight reel.

        Anyone but me notice when whack mc'nuts was shooting at his lawyer around the tree the cruiser driveing in the backround stop when he was shooting then go after he walked away.

        Guy had some pebbles I will say.


        Whats the difference between a skunk that got hit buy a car and lawyer that got hit buy a car? The skunk had skid marks in front of it!

        Happy Halloween!
        I dont suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

          Oh man.....that was just messed up today. I didn't think anyone was equipped well enough to start shooting at a guy in the middle of the day.

          I got a kick out of the girl on the payphone in the background......the guys shooting and she still stands there and talks on the phone.

            Anyone but me notice that a fire engine stops in front of the burning building and then drives away?

            Why? Because the best tactical position is not always RIGHT NEXT TO THE DANGEROUS INCIDENT!

            Or maybe the officer didn't realize what was happening.

            It's amazing, a whackjob shoots another man in the face and what do you guys do? Make fun of the victim and attack the cops. Real professional.

              Perhaps you should watch the footage a few more times. He DID get hit, multiple times in various places. Luckily, none of them seem to have hit anything critical. In fact, you can see him take at least one bullet to the left arm You even see a bullet hole in his sleeve from the bullet exiting out the back of his arm. I think people thought he never got hit because he walked away (and out of the camera shot). He collapsed right after the cameras panned away from him but remained concious. Last report I saw, he was in stable condition.

              As for the girl on the pay phone, you know, she could have been on the phone with 9-1-1???

              In all the whacky things I've seen on the news, I have never in my life seen anything like this. My jaw was on the floor in disbelief, that just doesn't happen. It was like a cartoon unfolding outside the courthouse with live ammo.
              Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

                Was it just me or did the girl on the phone seem to have on some "hooters" shorts under her coat? Just sort of reminded me of the hooters attire.

                  I believe he got hit in each shoulder.
                  Someone once told me that time is a predator that stalks us all our lives. But maybe time is also a companion who goes with us on our journey, and reminds us to cherish the moments of our lives because they will never come again.

                    Was it just me, or id this a completely irrelevant post in response to another human being being shot?

                    None of you whp post this drivel can have an intellectually honest discussion aout professionalism or compassion again.

                      Uh, it's not just you... it's very irrelevant. I can choose what "part" of a topic I want to post about George... whether you like it or not! It's a free country, remember?

                      None of you whp post this drivel can have an intellectually honest discussion aout professionalism or compassion again.
                      Oh, show me the error of my ways George......... ye who sits on high, ruling over us. What a joke.

                      Do I think it's funny some guy got shot? NO. Do I think the girls shorts look strangely like hooters shorts... LOL, yeppers.

                      Hey, guess what Georgy boy, I'm gonna have all the discussions I want... professional, or otherwise. Besides, I don't have compassion because I mentioned something about her shorts.... give me a break.

                        This is typical humor in public safety.

                          Dateline did a detailed bit on this incident tonight, so to clear up the confusion:

                          The Lawyer was hit 4 times in the arms and shoulders, and once in the neck. The neck injury was close to the carotid, but he was ok (relatively speaking of course), and expected to be released today. The Doctors said he was in excellent condition considering what he had been through. Again, Lucky Bastard!

                          The Gunman was allegedly seeking revenge because the lawyer was in control of his medical trust fund, and would not release some money for back surgery he required. The Gunman had a second loaded gun in his pocket which he didn't use. Maybe he was planning on finishing himself off later?

                          The Dep Sheriff who took the gunman down was on his way to court unarmed and in plain clothes, when the camera man from court TV pointed him out. He took him down unarmed. Some balls!

                          The girls WAS wearing Hooters shorts. That was her Halloween costume. And yes, she was calling 911 on the phone (both phones actually).
                          Never argue with an Idiot. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience!

                            Let me tell you something, I have been in "public safety" for over 25 years. This is NOT "typical humor" where I am from. The victim of a shooting deserves respect and compassion regardless of who or what he is.

                            You guys are quick to point out the incidents where law enforcement officers screw up. Let's see how many of you read mcaldwell's post and praise the off-duty MOS for the apprehension. Nope, let's focus on a shadow of what someone thinks is a patrol car that didn't happen to stop.

                            mcaldwell, thanks for the update. It was nice to see an intelligent post here.

                              When will people learn to do it right.... use a shotgun. We have a winner in town that has been thru three drive by shootings in the past few years. He is too dumb to move or stop messing with the homies. That is about 30 shots that missed this guy
