Ok, this family was way wrong. But you only shoot when you want to kill someone. These police officers were wrong and should be fired.
Check it out:
Two New Mexico police officers are under investigation after one opened fire on a minivan. A mother and her five children were inside.
The shooting happened last month after a traffic stop turned into a high-speed chase outside of Santa Fe. And now, there’s newly-released video of the confrontation in which 39-year-old mother of five, Orianna Ferrel, can be seen being pulled over for speeding by a New Mexico state police officer just north of Santa Fe. The officer’s dash camera captures them arguing.
But Ferrell drives off instead. The officer pursues and pulls her over again. Emotions escalate. The police officer can be heard saying: “Get out of the vehicle! Get out of the vehicle right now!”
Ferrell doesn’t budge, but her 14-year-old son jumps out. He retreats when the officer pulls out his Taser.
