You couldn’t pay me enough to be a cop. And that’s probably a good thing. With all the crap they have to deal with I’d end up being one of those “shoot first, sift the remains for positive ID later” sort of cops. Stuff like this police chase Wayne County.
At one point during the pursuit the driver being pursued slammed on the brakes and someone in the vehicle reached out the vehicle and shot several times at the deputies car. Several bullets struck the patrol car and shot out the windshield.
And who exactly was responsible?
An investigation with multiple law enforcement agencies led to the discovery of a suspect, (Suspect), 30. When deputies entered a residence, (Suspect) had a self-inflicted gun shot wound. (Suspect) was transported to Wayne Memorial Hospital for treatment of serious head trauma.
(Suspect) has an extensive criminal history from Michigan and is wanted by Michigan for an outstanding warrant for Probation Violation of a Home Invasion charge, according to the Wayne County sheriff’s office.
So we have a multiple felon fugitive with a gun. How’s that gun control working for you?
I’d have transported him to the hospital too. The trouble is I’d have a hard time deciding if I was going to transport him slowly on a broken skateboard after I’d had a long lunch, or if I would rush him to the hospital by tying his leg to the bumper of my police cruiser and dragging him.
I just don’t have the sort of compassion necessary to be an effective cop.
