    stupid. Drawing a gun on police = getting shot. Damn near every time.

    There's a Cedar Rapids, General Mills, "cereal killer" joke to be made here. I'll let you all put together the pieces.

    Even motioning towards something that looks like you're reaching for a gun = dead

    stupid move by that woman

    Tough stuff...but anyone that pulls a gun out when confronted by the police must know what is going to happen!

    I'm sure the civil rights activists are licking their chops. "Well the cops could'a/should'a done this instead..."

    If I'm a cop and you point a gun at me and I have a wife and kids at home, I'm making damn sure that I am the one going home that night, not you.

    Respectfully, do you know more about this situation than what is published? I agree with your second statement but at the same time there certainly have been cases where police officers have unnecessarily fired their weapons (not suggesting this was the case in CR last night). This will be interesting to read about as more info is released. No matter what...sad for a lot of people (including the officers who had to discharge their weapons)!

    Obviously need to know more, but why in the world would you EVER actually or pretend to show a firearm when you are being pulled over by the cops?

    You might want to sit down, this may blow your mind: people are stupid. Incredibly, unforgivably stupid.

    Plus it was 230 am so drugs and alcohol could have been a factor.

    Also, not saying it's the case here, but suicide by cop isn't unheard of.

    Obviously the situation needs to be fully investigated, but the officers have few choices once a gun is drawn

    I believe it is called "suicide by cop".

    lol! I've unfortunately met a few that fall into that category!

    yeah the late night timing does make it seem rather suspicious.

    Not much good happens around that part of town after dark...especially that late.

    If the cops didn't have guns, this woman would still be alive :no:

    Another example of nothing good happens after midnight.

    3am having a gun in your car, running from the police = you probably did something bad.
