    Oh...and as a side note...BE CAREFUL OUT THERE! There are some radical scumbags out there now calling for taking vengeance for this incident and "Taking out" New Mexico LEO's.

    Trunks is right. And here in NM, we are not supposed to shoot at any moving vehicle...The officer who fired on the vehicle, even though he appears to be shooting low (Possibly going for the tires?) is in some deep doo-doo. Up to that point, I don't really see anything wrong.

    Bump Trunks1701, everything is not about race. This incident was a perfect storm of stupidity in my opinion.

    I think race/ethnicity should be kept out of this. Tempers flared and bad judgment was displayed by all parties involved. As an officer you must also be cognizant of when to communicate effectively and de-escalate a situation. I don't see how using your service weapon was justifiable in this instance.

    Bump Dave! What's with the shooting part of this? I sure hope someone was shooting at the one officer who fired at a vehicle full of children, first!

    I'd sure hate to see Jackson or Sharpton come down here to NM...Although, it might be fun to heckle them in person!!!

    If this moronic chick would have conducted herself in a civilized manner at the outset none of this other would have transpired.I will say,however,that leos are trained to maintain a bit better decorum than they displayed here.Good judgement and common sense should ALWAYS be the determining factor in how an incident such as this should be handled.

    It's just a matter of time before Uncle Jesse and Al rear their ugly heads.

    I foresee problems in the future for these officers. I'm hoping that what they saw that we can't see in the video justifies the force used...
