    Prayers out for the innocent victims and their families, as well as for the officers involved. This is going to be a rough one if police bullets killed the innocents, and probably even if they didn't.

    I try to give the benefit of the doubt, but the tactics remind me mostly of this:

    To be fair, I can’t imagine a firefight like that in the middle of a busy intersection going well for just about anyone besides dedicated HRTs.

    When did identifying targets go out of style? Want to make noise? Join a rock band.

    Was that civ car being driven forward as concealment (not cover) driven by its owner? I hope not.

    There was a back robbery in Aurora a few years ago. An electronic tag in the cash allowed the cops to follow the robber and isolate him to a busy intersection- but not identify the exact car. So what do the cops do? Lock down the intersection and start pulling people out of their cars at gun point, cuffing everyone and putting them on the side of road. All with an armed bank robber somewhere out there.

    Sure, pull me out of my car at gun point, cuff me and leave me defenseless in the middle of a gunfight that might kick off at anytime.

    Interestingly this one started with the owner of the place they went to rob shooting it out with them. No doubt, idiots will blame the store owner some how for not just handing over his stuff, or some other armchair BS.

    Out of my lane, but of they perps started shooting at LE in the middle of all that traffic (as claimed), not sure what else they could/should have done. Obviously there was no time to coordinate anything and once bullets started flying from the stolen truck into traffic and at LE, stopping the threat ASAP makes sense, hopefully not done in a spray and prey manner...

    When they start shooting at you? That would seem a pretty good indicator they're your targets no? If LE took the first shots, that's another issue.
