Or, alternate title: “Hey dumbass citizen…shut your pie-hole unless you were there for the whole thing.”

This story comes out of Post Falls, Idaho, about an officer-involved shooting of a perp after a high-speed pursuit. The officers involved were cleared of any wrong-doing, and the shooting was deemed justified. From ‘The Spokesman Review:’

Two Post Falls police officers and and Idaho State Police corporal were justified when they shot a fugitive to death in March during a chase that ended in a cul-de-sac in Hayden, authorities concluded this week.

Video from a police cruiser’s dashboard camera released Friday shows Justin Earl Nicholas Todd, 33, strike Idaho State Police Cpl. Michael Thomas Keys with a car before Keys and Post Falls police Officers Aaron Ogle and Bradley Johnson opened fire.

Todd, who died at the scene, was shot 10 times. Johnson fired 16 shots, Ogle fired one and Keys three.

Bonner County Prosecutor Louis Marshall concluded this week that no criminal charges will be filed because the officers’ use of force was lawful.

Here’s the combined-agency video that was released showing the pursuit and shooting:

Cops Arrest a Copper Thief in Rialto, Wearing an Interesting T-Shirt (VIDEO)

This is just too funny for words. How much irony can you pack into one video? A copper thief, chased by cops, trying to cop out on the charge, wearing a…. COPS t-shirt! You can’t make this sh** up.

Carbon Motors Exclusive E7 Future Cruiser Cop Car (VIDEO)

What makes the Carbon Motors E7 different from the standard police cruiser?

Instead of taking an off-the-line passenger vehicle and retrofitting it with tens of thousands of dollars worth of equipment to bring it up to specifications, the E7 starts with officers’ needs in mind. The vehicle is engineered from bumper-to-bumper, and from the ground-up, to serve the unique demands of law enforcement, with features including:

- A high-performing six-cylinder dual-turbo clean diesel engine that burns less fuel
- Bullet-stopping ballistic panels in front doors and dash panel
- Emergency lights and flashers integrated into the roof, body and bumpers
- 360-degree exterior video and audio monitoring with programmable pre-event recording capability
- Video and audio monitoring of rear passenger compartment
- Automatic license plate recognition system

And much more.

I LOVE a great pursuit vehicle!
