    Police unload 137 bullets into UNARMED suspects after pursuit in East Cleveland; 2 dead - YouTube

    This is really sad as it comes on the heels of NYPD officer Larry DePrimo who recently showed the kind of police officers I remember as a kid growing up. Now that's a hero.

    Why didn't the guys stop? They had that option. What were they running for?
    You run from the police , it's never going to end well.

    Overkill has been happening for a long time. We just did Bonnie & Clyde on another thread.

    I just read this morning that the homeless/shoeless guy is back on the streets minus his new shoes. He won't tell anyone what happened to them but does say that he wants a piece of the action for having his picture splashed all over the internet and tv. That's gratitude for you. Others have come forward and said they had bought this loser new shoes also. Apparently you can trade new shoes for drugs and alcohol pretty easy.

    That's what I've always said about Ruby Ridge, Waco, and any militia willing to fire shots on federal agents.

    IF you have nothing to hide, if you have done nothing wrong, there is reason to stop. Not 'sayin that was the case.

    Its a high crime area, other reports say they were fired upon, outside the justice center, by this car. No weapon was found, there were 3 cities driven through, maybe they threw them out, during this time. Autopsies could show, powder burn on the victims. Ill withold judgement. Til I have the facts. Bad cops, yup, a whole bunch of them? Probably not. You run from the cops, you should expect the worst. It is called respect of the law.

    I give them props for being so conservative.

    13 cops X 15 bullets per average 9mm sidearm is 195 shots. Sounds like they took it easy on them.

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    137 shots? I don't think Lebron took that many during his time with the Cavaliers.

    The city of Boston has devices to locate the position of any gun shots fired .
