    KC cops shoot up a van that backfired.

    Is this a good example of officer safety or poor identification of the threat?

    A citizen may not be required to offer a ―good and substantial reason-- why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs.

    The panic/flight response must have kicked in. The shot out the squad car windows. It's a wonder they didn't shoot each other.

    The driver of the white van must be living a charmed life.

    I bet these two cops are getting it with both barrels by their fellow officers.

    When I first hear of this I thought WTF then I read that they had been dispatched because of gunfire coming from the van. Still a situation than could have had, and luckily did not have, a terrible outcome. Sounds like some trigger happy LEO's. A little more understandable now and not quite as wild but shooting out the windows of the squad car! Were they still inside when they started shooting? I'll bet their ears are still ringing from the noise much less the comments from their fellow LEO and the public.

    It is needs the grammar no is understood rightly. I are the fluency making of knowing good. It is be possibility of I translate to unwashed masses of the meaning.

    O.K. everyone, since I am familiar with Gibberish language and culture, I have kindly offered to translate: By the above quoted statement, he is proposing that the United States should build more Ford Model A roadsters in an attempt to familiarize the jumpy law enforcement officers with backfires.

    Evidently, Model A's are still in production on the assembly lines of Gibber.

    BTW: I have met several Gibberish police officers, and they are indeed, very calm.

    During my senior year in high school, I owned a 1929 Model A Ford. Due to their primitive distributor, they tended to fire the spark plugs at the wrong time. To deal with this, there was a spark advance/retard lever on the steering column. If you retarded the spark while coasting, the engine would backfire.
    It also had a throttle lever on the steering column. This was used when starting it with a hand crank. Retard the spark, set the throttle at 1/4 and crank away. Retarding the spark kept the engine from fireing before top dead center and having the crank break your arm when the engine tried to run backwards.

    You sir are amazing!!!! I know this guy has good things to say, but unfortunately extremely hard to understand most of the time. Super, please frequent the CA forum and translate on a regular basis!

    Wc, I agree completely!
