A police shooting in Arkansas.
In a discussion in Social Media, somebody complained:
Shame on the driver going the other way for not ending that with his car. Perfect setup”
He was referring to this driver in the silver SUV. Hindsight is such a beautiful thing… not.
Although there is no argument that a vehicle has enough grains to stop a bad guy, the idea that you should get in the middle of a shootout is stupid. You are injecting yourself in a situation where two individuals are highly affected by adrenaline and the frigging bullets are flying, what could go wrong?
The driver did the smart thing: He/she made the decision of throwing the car into reverse and with a lot of prayer (I am guessing) got the hell out of there. No superhero stuff, no bravado because your own safety is your first responsibility. Besides, you really don’t know what is going and cannot know in the very short frame of time we see in the video.
Let’s put the superhero capes away and make sure the underwear is inside the pants, shall we?
