Often on the blog we talk about how important it is to comply with officer instructions. The news report came through about an incident which happened Thursday near Charlotte, NC where a State Trooper shot a hearing impaired driver as he exited the vehicle. Information about the situation is still coming out, but the news report would make one think the man was pulled over and then shot as he exited the vehicle. What actually happened is a trooper attempted to pull the speeding car over and eventually another trooper became involved and they chased the vehicle for six miles. Eventually when there was no response to the lights and siren they bumped the car to get it to stop. When the driver finally pulled over and stopped in a neighborhood he exited the vehicle and the officer shot and killed the driver. As of right now that is about all that is known, but in the coming days more information should emerge.
