Elias Montoya, NM Officer, Suspended After Shooting At Minivan Full Of Kids

Just like every section of society there are good and bad people. This is a bad cop. Very trigger happy and has no business being a cop. He needs fired.
Check it out:

The New Mexico State Police officer who fired at a minivan full of children during a chaotic traffic stop has been suspended.

New Mexico State Police Chief Pete Kassetas told The Associated Press on Thursday that officer Elias Montoya has been suspended with pay pending a disciplinary investigation into the shooting outside the small tourist town of Taos.

A dashboard camera on the police cruiser showed Montoya shooting at the minivan as motorist Oriana Farrell drove away from a chaotic traffic stop that included another officer bashing the van’s window with his night stick. Farrell had been stopped by state police for speeding and fled twice after arguing with an officer.
