hell of a night for me, got in another shooting!

Last night Lake Winnebago P.D. (Missouri) stopped a car and the driver tried to run him over which resulted in a pursuit. I ended up as the lead car and chased the guy until he crashed out. He fled from his vehicle to a treeline and then opened up on us after the Winnebago Officer left the cover of his vehicle, fired about 5-6 shots the first time and then fired a second barrage which went zipping right over my head after I pushed the Winnebago Officer down to the ground. Never got to return fire because I couldn't see his muzzle flash and didn't want to shoot blindly into the treeline. He was taken into custody by the Lees Summit Missouri Tac Team this morning and aggravated assault charges are pending. Seems like I'm a magnet for this crap! Chris

Cops never get the respect they're due.

THat took a lot of self control. I would have hunted the guy down and executed him myself. I guess that's why I'm not a cop. You deserve a king size atta boy for saving your buddy and not returning fire when there's a chance that an innocent bystander could be injured.

Guys that shoot at cops should be put in jail and left to rot. If they kill a cop they should get a 5 minute trial and executed 5 minutes after that.

Criminals don't fear our justice system anymore and that leads to increased lawlessness. We need to put judges on the bench that will see these scum bags for what they are. Our justice system started going to Hell when the libs changed the aim of our prison system from punishment to rehabilitation. That was a critical error.

Glad your okay Chris. I understand where you're coming from. My ex-wife is a cop and she has gotten down and dirty with the worst of them. She can handle herself real good, but I always worried about her and still do. I can say one thing for sure about her, whatever she's shooting at, she hits. Damn if I would want her shooting at me :lol: . Some of those fools out there wouldn't think twice about shooting a officer.

Here's the news report that went out today. Chris

LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo. -- A man is in custody after several shots were fired at police officers Sunday morning, authorities said.

Jay J. Truelove, 37, was arrested in a wooded area along Highway 291 near Hook Road.

Investigators said a Lake Winnebago officer tried to pull over a pickup truck on a traffic violation at about 3 a.m. The officer said the driver tried to ram the officer's patrol car. The officer pursued the pickup.


Police said the driver bailed out of the pickup and opened fire on officers with a rifle.

As many as 12 shots were fired at the Lake Winnebago officer and a Cass County deputy, authorities said.

"The officer's initial response was, 'I only had to hear one shot and I dove for cover.' Then he's starting to hear the rapid succession, where he's counting eight, nine, 10 shots that just continued to come," Officer Mike Childs said.

Truelove was later found in the woods after he had fallen into a creek, police said. He was suffering from hypothermia.

Truelove was charged Monday with armed criminal action, resisting arrest and two counts of assault on a law enforcement officer. Prosecutors requested a $250,000 bond.

I just figued I'd post the message for the entertainment factor lol. This is the 3rd shooting I've been involved in since I started in 1995 so this one was not as big of a deal. Oh, no I wasn't looking for a bunch of "good job" kind of comments either but thanks anyway. Chris

It's kinda disheartening to me to see people writing stuff such as to lock the guy up forever or execute him. Maybe when it gets to this, people shooting at other people in an attempt to get away, that sort of action is needed, but from what I've seen, it's when younger kids are "taught a lesson" by local law enforcement for BS childishness that they lose all respect for the law and it sets them well on the path of more serious infractions. There's good civilians and bad ones, just as there's good cops and bad cops. My dad was in law enforcement for 31 years and even he dislikes most cops. Luckily, it was only two weeks a year that he had to spend with most of them. They'd consider their job as them vs. the public, not them at the service of the public. Like I said, not all are bad, but it seems many are. Just last summer I was riding in my friend's camaro (was mine until I sold it to him). He gave it some gas from an intersection but didn't spin the tires or go more than 5mph over the speed limit (35mph zone). After he'd turned onto a side street toward the high school, where we were going to a high school play, we were pulled over by two cop cars and they threatened us with lots of crap about how we were drag racing and my friend's license would be suspended. My friend stayed cool and just said that he was certainly not racing anyone. Then the cop gets louder, almost yelling, about how it's still "exhibition of speed" and that's license suspension for a year. Meanwhile, I had a cop on my side of the car ask me for my license and tried to force me to say we were either hot-rodding or racing. We didn't get any fines because they obviously didn't see anything. They just heard the car exhaust and felt like being asses, I guess. I feel sorry for the kids they guilt into confessing stuff they didn't do and then the kids resent all authority after that because they've been wronged. Well, I'm ranting now. :lol: Anyway, it's good that no one in this shooting deal was seriously hurt.
