    Been on the news here since last night. Did you see the video of the woman who was "Mad as hell!"

    There has been an increase in what the news calls "police shooting" in the ATL metro area. So far I think they all have been ruled justified. We'll see how this one washes out. But if you shoot at the cops...

    I have read several news stories on this one and just don't know what to think yet. My guess is that if the lady was 32 instead of 92, it would not be as well covered.

    It's a little more open to interpretation in your own home. Again, this is unfortunate and from some more sources I have read, the PD doesn't seem to have done anything technically wrong. That being said, serving a warrant, breaking in the door, doing it at night and being out of uniform just doesn't seem to be the wisest way to do it. I do agree however that once she fired, they had absolutely no option but to return fire.

    Yeah it sounds like she was scared and paniced, but after hitting 3 of them what else could they have done? As long as they made it clear that they were police officers before they entered, i don't think they did anything wrong. It's just a bad situation... but the black panther guy tripped me out.
