Had you done similar shooting as a civilian you would've been arrested for negligence. A 9mm can easily travel 2km and there was a lot of traffic ahead of the bantam.

This cop is awesome. I love the fact that he walks away after the perp is down and let's the tresseme gang carry on.

Brilliant https://youtu.be/oQiwAqj8wq0



I love it  :thumleft:

But give the man a Africa Twin DCT so he can free up his left hand  :deal:
In the beginning I thought "this is nice but what more can he do but follow". And then he pulls a gun. That was awesome!!

But yeah the dct would be a killer solution.

It's the end of the road as we know it and I feel fine.

There always have to be naysayers... well fuck you when you need the cops... :patch:

I commend the officer and the rest of the SAPS involved. They were doing the job we expect them to do. :thumleft:

Excellent :thumleft:

I agree EXCELLENT work! What a pity that the real SKELMS are not trying to flee in an old Nissan bakkie. They are behind executive desks.

While I agree that these criminals should be executed on the spot, the law works differently.

Here I see a cop basically shooting a fleeing suspect, possibly unarmed, in the back?

How can this be correct procedure, in the light of the law?

Care to show us where the perp was shot in the back. I saw him shooting at the right front wheel, nothing more.

I hear what 2SD is saying and also wondering what is the correct legal procedure and if it is different for cops vs us. We also don't know what happened  before the start of the video. When the guy falls out of the bakkie you can see he is bleeding from the hip. (minute 3,26 in the video) I applause this cop, but just wondering what would happen if I get on my bike chasing a hijacker of my car and shoot at him while Im chasing him, or chasing a robber and starts shooting while he is running away. I also want that option.

While he was following the bakkie, the cop fired several shots straight into the rear of the bakkie. Is this not the same as shooting at a man running away?

I do realise that the cop had to neutralise the thief, before he drove over or into someone though.

I think the difference here is while this guy if fleeing in a vehicle it can be argued that he is endangering other road users, so stopping him as soon as possible might save other lives. Agreed, that if any civilian shoots at a fleeing person he will be in trouble, unless you plead the same. Just a guess

I agree, and of course the "Tresemme gang" :imaposer: :imaposer: is too poorly trained to stop him with a well executed PIT maneuver.

I am sure that we would have heard from the Tresemme gang by now if anything was untoward during this episode, given the race of the cop and the race of the perp.

Isn't his Aerotrim upside down?

Or is mine? I'm not sure coz it doesn't work at all. Even though I use synthetic oil.
