Mini Van Traffic Stop Ends In Wild Chase For Memphis Woman and Kids

Posted on: 10:32 pm, November 16, 2013, by , updated on: 09:04am, November 18, 2013

(Taos, New Mexico) A Memphis woman, Orianna Ferrell, and her children were involved in a wild chase in New Mexico after being stopped by police officers.

Ferrell was stopped for speeding and when the officer went back to his car for something, she drove off.

The officer stopped her again and this time things turn violent with five children in the car.

The officer pursues and pulls her over again. Emotions escalate. The police officer can be heard saying: “Get out of the vehicle! Get out of the vehicle right now!”

Ferrell didn’t budge, but her 14-year-old son jumps out. He retreats when the officer pulls out his Taser.

The woman’s 14-year-old son got out of the vehicle and swung at police reportedly to protect his mother.

You can hear the other children in the car screaming in fear.

The officer called for back-up.

Finally, she gets out of the vehicle, and then appears to ignore the officer, and struggles to get back inside.

Out came her son again.

This time he scuffles with the officer.

He runs backs to the car. The family is locked inside. The officer smashes the window with his baton.

As Ferrell drives off again, another officer arrives and fires at least three shots at the van with the five children inside.

After a 10-minute, high-speed chase, Ferrell finally stops. She and her son are arrested.

She finally stopped at a hotel.

Ferrell was arrested and so was her 14-year-old son.

She is charged with child abuse and possession of drug paraphernalia and her son is charged with battery.

The officer actions are also being investigated by state police.

They are still on the job.

    I hope those police officers go straight to hell. You don’t shoot at a car full of little children and you don’t talk to a woman (or anyone else) like that…especially in the presence of little children. And you don’t beat out the windows on a bunch of little children. I am reading about more and more incidents of police gone wild all over this country. I am terrified of the police. They used to make me feel safe, but not any longer.

    • David says:

      They (state police), should have just let her go. Right?

    • Tim says:

      The woman was an idiot and the cops criminal. The article isn’t clear. The officer ticketed her and demanded payment on the spot or she was going to be taken in booked and arraigned. This is armed robbery under the color of authority.

      I am not a big supporter of the thug behavior in this city but being arrested for not having enough money on you is not right. Who here hasn’t driven 70 in a 55 without enough money to pay the ticket?

      She was looking at having her car impounded and being separated from her children thousands of miles from home.

      • Truthteller says:

        Not sure where you are getting the payment is due now or you are going to jail, because it sure isn’t in this story. After stopping the van for the second time the officer explained and instructed her to get out of the van because she was going to jai, for evading charges…

      • If she didnt have the money, why the hell was she on vacation in new Mexico?

      • Tim says:

        I got it from the original story.

    • Pray4Peace says:

      Even if it took a while to track her down and the officers did not find the drug evidence, they still would have had her for resisting arrest, and probably several other charges.
      It was completely unnecessary to endanger the children and other passengers by smashing the car window. Attempting to murder those in the van was Gestapo-like behavior.

    • Cheryl Brunk says:

      And, I was taught when you break the law and then run away you are in a heap of trouble… She showed no respect for her children or the lawmen. When she was stopped she should have done what any law abiding citizen would do. NOT run off like she had something to hide!!!

    • emily says:

      Sally, amazing your focus goes right to the “wrong” you deemed done by the police. Police know what usually happens in these chase situations. Most of the time, car chases are extremely dangerous and the drivers have become so irrational they pose a grave threat to other innocent drivers. The officer was doing what would be best for the children in trying to blow out the TIRES and stop the further endangerment. And is it any surprise that she did exactly as they are trained to expect. She drove head-on into traffic with those children as she tried to escape the police. Please don’t be so quick to have a knee jerk reaction to situations. That is where you infact put yourself in the place of judging others.

  • She was non-compliant, but the police had no need to use such deadly force. They should be charged with child abuse and endangerment as well. Both are at fault.

    • bmw120 says:

      No, if you do not comply, you can die. SHE endangered the lives of her children, not the cops.

    • Terrie says:

      The ‘backup’ did not know what type of situtation he was coming up on. They were right to try and stop an obviously fleeing car. WHY WHY did she just not stop and do the right thing?? I’ll tell you why—-they’re from Memphis & stupidity runs rapid here when these kinds of people.

      • Amethyst says:

        Careful with the stupid and these people comments. Because the expression is runs rampant, not rapid! Stupidity does not discriminate!

  • Tim Checker says:

    Sally, excuses like that are what’s WRONG with this Country now. She was non-compliant because she was hiding drugs, her son assaulted a police officer and she ran twice from the Police. Not to mention endangering her kids. SHE IS THE ONE THAT BELONGS IN HELL.

    • Greg says:

      Well said, the police their for these non-grateful citizen and all the citizen can do is talk crazy about the police. That officer life was endanger, I hate when people take up for thugs, just makes me sick!

      • Jason says:

        But yet you take sides with a man who had nothing endangering his life at all he jumped out of nowhere and fired upon a fleeing van even if it wasn’t full of kids he would be in violation of law why don’t you read up and get real savvy with gun laws these days before you to fire upon unarmed peopl thinking your life is in danger from women and kids and if you were gonna point at the van as a weapon , it doesn’t become one unless you actually try and ram someone with it

      • China D says:

        Let me guess Greg. ..they are thugs because…they are black right?!?! If you can’t see that both mother and police were wrong, then you sir are….I’ll let you fill that in. The mother was wrong, wrong, and wrong..she could have caused her child/children their lives..her actions were way beyond ignorant..reckless and foolish…aren’t the police supposed to use better judgement..or are they supposed to act as reckless as this woman did?..

      • scott kirkpatrick says:

        What about the innocent children in the car Greg? Does two wrongs make a right? Very difficult situation foe police. But shooting at a moving vehicle with innocent people on board is plain wrong especially for a traffic stop. A innocent child could have been killed. I was not there , however I feel it could have been handled BETTER.

      • Mac says:

        How to you draw the conclusion that this traveling woman and her five children are thugs? Is it because she was speeding or because she is of color. She had every reason to fear for her life as did her children. The police reaction proves it. They, like you, have pre-conceived notions of how to treat certain people. Firing shots into a fleeing minivan full of children and a women is great police work, right?

    • China D says:

      Yes, she was wrong. That’s a fact that’s not up for discussion, but seriously…the police were as well. Not initially, but who the hell shoots at a car filled with children and busts out a window??? Oh, racist white police officers who could care less that the car is filled with a bunch of black children!!! The fourteen year old knew that his mother was going to get the black beaten out of her…wasn’t the best decision, but he tried to stop it. Police officers are trained to shoot and kill black and minorities first, we all know this. Police officers need to be retrained. ..no one has respect for them anymore. They cross the line far too many times because they know they will get away with it…just a bunch of doughnut eating butt-holes with a gun and a badge. People are sick of it.

      • John says:

        Police are trained to kill black and minorities first, really, because I don’t remember having that class in the academy. Quit being so ignorant

      • lucy says:

        i could care less about there being poor black children in the car….less future crime in the streets if that happens

      • Indian says:

        Are you F****ing kidding me? You must be black if you are making this all about color. I don’t think it would make a difference if the cops were black or white. They had no idea what was going on in that van. For all they knew those kids could have been kidnapped! And how were they supposed to know that the kid that climbed out and attacked them was her son? The thing is compliance! We must all comply with the law or suffer the consciquences. It doesn’t matter if she didn’t agree. She should have went to the police station and taken care of her ticket. It is common to have to pay before you move on if you are from out of state. I have even seen people spend the night in jail until the money could be wired to them. Yes for a speeding ticket. And no the cop should not have fired on the van but like I said….. How did they know the kids had not been kidnapped?

    • Are you kidding ? READ IT !!! She belongs in HELL ?, They didn’t really do anything BAD to be treated that way ……….Maybe speeding and smoke something pot in …… not a reason to be KILLED….The Cops put them in danger…..

  • Trina says:

    Lock her butt up! She caused all this!

  • Trina says:

    People always hollering about police wrong doing, but who they call when they need help. Call 911! Call 911! Smh..

    • Greg says:

      People are quick to record the police actions nowadays, but you let somebody get killed they haven’t seen anything. Police can be getting beat to death but once he fire a round off, the police is the bad guy. Society!

  • Kiki says:

    This is ridiculous. Now, I definitely don’t agree with the officer firing shots at the van with the kids inside. But, as a teacher I see this same type of defiant behavior EVERYDAY toward authority figures. The students exhibit the same type of behavior because they see their parents do it, as evident it this video. From what we can see, the officer 1) stated why she was being pulled over; 2) made a reasonable request for her to turn off the car and remain in place. She drove off showing all FIVE of her kids that they don’t have to respect authority.

  • mike says:

    stupid ignorant people speeding and carrying drugs while kids are in the car and running from police they deserve everything they get for disobeying police ! and those of you who comment the police were wrong are ignorant !

    • ihate cops says:

      they didnt say they found drugs it said she was charged with drugs i guarantee u they just gave her that charge prejudices a**pigs wouldn’t have treated a white woman like that!

  • 1midtownmike says:

    Sally Smith, the gates are down and the lights are flashing but the train ain’t comin’ for ya. You have deprived a third world village of having an idiot.

  • FranMem says:

    She should have stayed there in the first place like he told her. She broke the law by driving off.

  • FranMem says:

    No sympathy for this woman. She broke the law. They stopped her and she should have stayed right there as she was told. She showed a disrespect for the law to her children when she drove off. She deserved being arrested, as she continually broke the law by disobeying what the officers said. SHE put her children in harms way by her actions, not the police. While shooting at her was dangerous, that would not have happened if she had stayed put in the first place.

  • Ricky says:

    Yeah…. if you look closely, the officer was shooting at the vehicle’s tires. That same officer just walked up on the violent scene, and didn’t know who was in the car. Sad that this happened because of a Memphis woman. Memphis bein’ put on the map again for all the wrong reasons. These democrats feel you don’t have to obey police if ya don’t feel the need. She deserves a solid eight years in prison for endangering her children, the officers, and the public with her insanely stupid actions.

    • Nicci says:

      And labeling anyone on this situation and making judgments bard on their political views, Democrat, Republican, etc. Is the most ignorant statement of them all. You are a close minded, sad and simple little person to point blame to any religion, race, party or any other generalization. Keep judging other people, you pompous, nieve, shallow and sorry excuse of an American.

  • Sally Smith says:

    I didn’t say that the woman should have been let go. OF COURSE she should have been arrested. My problem is with the WAY the police did it. And MY GOODNESS, did I ruffle some reactionary conservative feathers here? Those of you who immediately concluded that I wanted to let the woman go are the idiots. I am a conservative, by the way, but I think for myself.

  • Ricky says:

    & When they lock mama’s fool behind up, they can send the kids to live with grandma, since they probably can’t find the daddy.

  • Sally Smith says:

    Is Mikey feeling all better now that he has insulted the mean bad lady who feels sorry for the little children in the van?

  • Nicci says:

    I agree with Sally. … The mother did wrong by taking off, HOWEVER the officers had absolutely NO reason to put his hands on her and firing at the vehicle full of children is completely thoughtless and asinine. The officers should also be charged with cold endangerment and deadly use of a firearm, harassment and cold neglect. If that’s how officers handle that situation than this country’s in a world of trouble. Not one of these adults handled this correctly. And the 14 year old was doing right by protecting his mama!

    • mike says:

      if the stupid ignorant women had not been speeding with drugs in the van full of children none of this would have happened fool ! if she hadn’t drove off the 1st or 2nd time none of that would have happened fool ! you are as ignorant as they come ! now go speed with drugs on you and see what happens fool !

    • emily says:

      Firing at the vehicles TIRES was a good decision. Expecially considering the fact that a successful hit would have prevented the endangerment they faced as their mother drove into head-on traffic. People running from police are dangerous. They put multitudes in danger. Please people, common sense.

    • Truthteller says:

      Not sure where you got those charges (cold endangerment and deadly use of a firearm, harassment and cold neglect). As a law enforcement officer we have to put our hands on you to make the arrest. Think about it, handcuff don’t get on by themself.

  • China D says:

    …and I know no one is going to read the part when I said the mother was wrong.

  • Ricky says:

    Nicci obviously has NO knowledge of the enforcement of laws. Step two after giving verbal commands is HANDS ON. Officers are taught that and are given that right by the state. That’s why it’s called enforcement. Nicci, it’s your mindset that we saw on display by the Memphis mother in NM..

    • Don says:

      Nicci obviously does have knowledge of law enforcement.
      The woman is used to driving and speeding with 5 children in Memphis.
      More than likely the officers would not have given her a ticket if she would have co-operated with them, but no, she had to show her Memphis attitude, and it didn’t work in New Mexico.
      She just needs to understand that there is no cure for Stupid!
      The officers were doing their job correctly until she she drove away.

  • Steve says:

    This is why the black community is in shambles. Black women of today are the worst mothers on the planet. 99% of black women born befor 1960 would have stopped the car , handed over license and registration and been polite. Many would have ultimately gotten out of the ticket. This “woman” acted like a man. Big city police would have taxed her at the first sign of resistance.

    Ther is a camera taping this and I bet she lied as to what happened.

    You have to follow the laws of the land. And women need to act like women.

    Notice there was NO MAN there. – this is because most black women cannot attract a man to help rise their own kids.

    • mission says:

      You hit the nail on the head. Now if this had happen in Memphis, she would have been given a 100 dollar bond and released.

  • Ricky says:

    In summation, Memphis woman in NM could’ve gotten a courtesy citation, verbal warning, or at worst a ticket, but she flagrantly disregards officers and gets felony charges. Happens all over America everyday. No holds barred stupidity always sticks in my crawl. Now, when she gets out of prison, she’ll blame someone else as to why she can’t get a job because she ruined her life with her felony convictions. Just obey the law and law enforcement officials, and save yo’self a trip to jail, to the hospital, or to the morgue.

  • Tim says:

    The woman caused this but the idea of an officer giving you a citation and collecting the fine right there is ridiculous. You break an ordinance and can’t pay a fine immediately and they arrest you in the middle of your trip and take you before a judge? Separate you from your kids.

    She was an idiot but this behavior by law enforcement is armed robbery.

    • cbodi says:

      Several states require payment on the spot – or you will be taken to the nearest town & arrested until you can appear in front of a judge for payment.

  • Ricky says:

    O.k.. So they were demanding payment on the spot. What other choice do you have? Out West, municipalities want payment on the spot for misdemeanor speeding. Out here, we issue a ticket “in lieu of continued custody” for the misdemeanor crime of speeding. When you receive a ticket, you agree to appear in court or we suspend you license. If she didn’t have the money, she should’ve went to court and made arrangements. What other choice did dummy have? Now, instead of an educational tour through the midwest, she’s a permanent resident of NM’s penal system.

    • Tim says:

      We’ll agree to disagree about demanding tribute to travel roads. We probably can agree that the woman incapable of being educated. It was an A+ display of stupidity

  • Glenn Moody says:

    @China D. The officer that shot at the van was black so your argument stating “Oh, racist white police officers who could care less that the car is filled with a bunch of black children!!!” could not be more inaccurate. Watch the video and pay attention before spouting off about officers being racists.

  • And yet I get fired for locking up the new mayor’s childhood friend for a felony dui. Go figure.

  • Joe Williams says:

    HAHAHA…. when I saw this on another feed, it just said from TN but I knew they had to be from Memphis. Low life ghetto rats found out quick their Memphis hood mentality didn’t fly in NM. Took her “chillens” on an “edumakated” tour on how to be a felon. The cop should have tazed that ghetto queen and the thug would have complied. But I don’t think that bl-ack cop should have fired his weapon. MEMPHIS REPRESENTING!!! Nationally!

  • Sally Smith says:

    To All of the Haters Here: I can’t even believe the racist comments I am reading here. It’s people like you who give white people and Christianity a bad name. I’m not coming back to this website to hear anymore vicious comments directed at me, or at others who disagree with you. Just go on with your name calling and bullying if it makes you feel good. I can tell that you enjoy ganging up on people with whom you disagree. I’d be willing to bet that when you shut down your laptops, turn off your ESPN, and tune out your talk radio…..you don’t feel so strong and satisfied and content with yourselves…..and by the way, your jokes are LAME, especially that old, tired village missing an idiot thing.

    • Good post Sally, glad you found out early the type of people you are dealing with on this thread. I used to interact with them, but realized they were bringing me down to their sick level, but no more. They are like wild rabid dogs on any issue dealing with Memphis and Black people.

  • george says:

    Wrong, wrong, wrong. She was being removed from the van because she fled once. Deadly force can only be used when your life or another
    is threatened.

  • kerry hodge says:

    she’s an idiot and had no respect for the law, normal memphis attitude. i agree they shouln’t have shot at car full of kids though

  • Mike says:

    I personally don’t see why this is news. Really? Just because they are from Memphis. This shouldn’t have ever have aired.

    Personally speaking they should take the kids, and perhaps they would have a chance at leading a normal life with some self restraint and common decency.

  • EV says:

    I see all you are like her. You don’t have god, so how you going to get on here and talk about. This woman what have she is doing she doing it for something. That what wrong now we judge people the wrong way. You don’t know what god is doing her. If she came from Memphis are hell it’s not right to judge anyone.

  • ihate cops says:

    Absolutely ridiculous they also edited part of the tape look closely at time they need need to be fired asap she needs to file civil rights violations against them.

  • Deja Brew says:

    Gotta love the officers who shoots at a van full of children. Wow, they’re so safe and willing to protect others!

  • Rrose says:

    Caution to all travelers: Is the beauty of New Mexico worth the risk of being shot by irate NM police officers?

    • emily says:

      It is quite comforting to know that as I travel through NM in December that I can trust the officers to try to blow out the tires of dangerous drivers attemptimg to recklessly run from police.

  • Thomas Adams says:

    I hope the two officers involved in the attack of this mother and children are severely punished and brought to justice and the punishment is more severe than losing their jobs. This mother should sue the police department the two idiots work for. There is not a court in the country that would not give them a multi million dollar settlement. I am a 67 year old grandpa and am white you have my name and email address and am so outraged I can not stay quiet in this matter

    • emily says:

      Where is it confirmed that they were requesting payment on the spot?

    • griz0310 says:

      Maybe you don’t see so straight anymore. The only person to blame here is the woman. She was pulled over for speeding and due to her behavior it escalated into something more. Anyone trying to blame the police here has their own agenda. There are plenty of courts who would back up the police in this situation. It is her kids, her responsibility. Even worse, she has done such a great job raising her kids that her 14 yr old thought it was ok to attack a police officer. She deserves prison time and her kids should be taken away from her. It’s quite obvious she doesn’t have the skills to raise them. It’s time for people to accept the responsibility for their actions and stop blaming someone else.

  • cbodi says:

    Regardless of whether she resisted arrest or not, could they have not followed her until she stopped? There is NO excuse for any office to shoot at a car full of children!!!!! I’m sure she would have run out of gas sooner or later! The police officers acted without regard for the children’s safety – inexcusible!

  • kelly says:

    I would like to think this woman were the exception rather than a typical Memphian. It does not matter what race you are or your back ground. When a police officer pulls you over for speeding, smile politely, take your ticket, ask where to send in your payment, and ease down the road. If your stupid , drugged out, jittery self can’t pull that off, then don’t have your kids as your cover. Police officers were once taught that a brother officer only has one color – blue. Did the officer over react? I don’t know, I don’t live in NM and am not up on their code or shoot don’t shoot policy. As for the four other children- God help them because the Memphis children services can’t do much.

  • She Was Wrong By Running off
    But The Cops were even more wrong!!!
    By shooting at a van full of kids and acting to aggressively
    —-“The AL SHARPTON”=She Will Get a Law Suit & Do no jail Time

  • eeganora@yahoo.com says:

    I’ll bet the only prints they find on the “drug paraphernalia” will be the officers.

  • jim creson says:

    She is a violator. Period.
    When “wanna-be-a-thug-boy” exits the vehicle, HE put himself in harms way. It appears the TASER was already out of the holster and the boy or his momma could have been controlled by immobilaziation at that point.
    We teach to never let a violator get back in the vehicle for Officer Safety but once she got back in and fled, it was still on her.
    Shooting at the van was over the top and the officers will probably be in trouble for that because it endangered innocent children who had done nothing but find themselves in the company of two idiots, the mother & the “wanna be”.
    Problem becomes that they still ended up in a pursuit that endangered more people when actually the mother should have been restrained before she got back to the vehicle. If she had to pack an a** whuppin’ to keep her from driving away, then so be it.
    Nothing shown shows any indication that deadly force was in line.
    Bullets don’t know their “intended target” and a child that simply has an IDIOT for a mother could have been hurt or killed.

  • Ryan Warren says:

    the cops were justified. They say this wouldnt have happenend to a white women. Probably not because a white woman prolly would have complied. They think because they are black they can do anything. I guarantee if that woman would have hit and killed someone people would have been complaining cops too slow. Sorry you cant have it both ways. I noticed the woman reporting story was also black.

  • Jimmy says:

    Greg, you an anybody else who say those children aren’t innocent are just RACIST or the police yourself. You have no morals, imagine those are your kids or that they are WHITE kids. Then you would call for his badge. Yes he was wrong, an COPS DO WHATEVER THEY FEEL CAUSE THEY HAVE A BADGE…

  • Terry says:

    I believe the officer were in his right within this case of giving her fair warning the first time. However did not agree with the shooting at the car while kids were in the car. However the mother should have used better judgement on her behalf knowing she had her kids as well drugs in the car.However she could have prevented this with a better attitude toward the situation. However let’s not profile by calling people out of their names because of their race.

  • mike says:

    Completely un called for behavior on the police’s part starting when he used the baton to smash the window. And why is the tazer always the first thing g to come out when minors get a little unruly? If these cops can’t restrain a kid by hand then they need to go back to the academy. As far as the backup officer eengaging the vehicle with several shots, learn how to shoot on your own time buddy, not when kids are involved.

  • Toni says:

    She made the stupid decision to run from the police, (instead of taking a simple speeding ticket). When she made that choice, she decided to endanger her life and the lives of her children.

  • Afroman says:

    NM will be visited by Rev. Jackson and Rev. Sharpton because of profiling this Black family.. How dare them white cops break out the van windows and shoot their guns on that defenseless Black Family that was using their hard earned welfare money to vacation across America. Did that family have guns? No. They didn’t have a chance against those rouge white cops with guns. So what if they had pot pipes in the van, better pot than crack. Those White Cracker Cops were bulling that poor Black family and racism was the reason they pulled them over in the 1st place, profiling that’s what it is. When they gonna learn that we are not going to allow this miscarriage of justice against the Black community. Reading all the whitey comments shows that you white folk don’t like Obama. Didn’t you learn anything from the Zimmerman trial, shoot 1st, ask questions later.

    • mission1 says:

      They say white people don’t like Obama because all he does is lie. However, they say it’s in his culture also.

  • Billy says:

    All she had to do was accept the speeding ticket and be on her way. She ran from the police therefore put her children and herself in harms way. Too many guns out there these days and crazies everywhere. The officers did what they needed to do to get another crazy off the street.

  • NoMoreForMe says:

    Mistake number one, you got pulled over with drug paraphernalia in your car. Mistake number two, you resist being detained by an officer, which at least would have been a citation for the paraphernalia and speeding or at worse a night in jail. (You already got pulled over, so why make it worse?) Mistake number three, the youngster gets out of the car in a threatening manner, with the cop not knowing if he is armed with a weapon or not, which could have lead to an even worse tragedy. Please explain how any of this is the fault of the police here? I suppose on Bizarro World, they would be at fault, but on this planet, WE ALL KNOW WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL OF THIS!!!

  • Just take your ticket and say thank you to the cop! It was just a speeding ticket, no need for your memphrica drama!

  • sally says:

    This is the United States, it is common sense that the cop did not ask for payment, he didn’t even have a chance to write her a ticket. The woman obviously has emotional problems because first of all, if you have something illegal in your vehicle, you don’t drive way over the speed limit attracting attention from law enforcement. That is the number one obvious rule. Second, if she would have just allowed the cop to give her a ticket, he would have sent her on her way. It’s sad that she’s teaching her kids to fear law enforcement rather than treat them with respect… You get into a lot less trouble when you are respectful. I’m glad this lady is in police custody and they can get her the help she needs for her mental illness. And its probably for the best that her children are no longer in her care. It doesn’t seem like she is fit to be a parent.

  • sally says:

    She is a selfish narcissist, because if she cared about the emotional well being of those kids she would have given herself up immediately. She tortured her children and her children will never forget that day.

  • sally says:

    And that’s a lie, people. I live ” out west” and there is no such thing as “payment on demand”. You recieve a court date in the mail just like any other state in the u.s. you are silly silly people who are perpetuating lies

  • Dazed&confused says:

    Wow!! some of the comments seem really crazy to me. In what world do the people saying the police is at fault live in. First of all she was speeding (71 in a 55 with her kids in the car) then she gets pulled over police states why he pulled her over, then asked to TURN OFF her car and hold on. She took it upon herself to flee. I understand she was scared becasue she had some drugs in her van, but really who speeds when they are carrying drugs. Then police manages to stop her again and tells her to get out of the car. Of course he will be a little upset, then she resists getting out of the car. He sons decides he wants to be grown and get out the car …. What was he going to do? At this point the police officer has more than enough reason to suspect she is trying to hide something. He is not a mind reader, he has no idea why she is doing all this. She finally gets out and then tries to run again. What in the world was she thinking, now it gets physical and the sons wrestles with the cop. Look the only cop that fired was the back up who had no real clue what was going on. Come on people. We are responsible for our childrens safety. If you are ok with speeding, flee the police, allowing your son to attack police then take the police on a high speed chase with all your children in the car, it just makes me wonder how much you care about your children to begin with. Just my opinion. She could of killed her kids without the help of the police. But the police is at fault??? I feel bad for the police they put their lives on the line everyday.

      I agree 100%. Love the way it’s the police who are in the wrong when this lady has drugs in her car, speeding and disobeying direct orders from a policeman! Watch, we will be paying the drug addict because she will be the victim. She endangered her children and the policeman who did the shooting may not have knows kids were in the, well except for the one who attacked the officer!!!

    She was pulled over for a speeding ticket, but she decide to drive off and put her kids in danger, the cop that did the shooting just drove up and may not been aware of the kids being in the car. As far as the cop that broke the glass, he had every right to do so, remember the young man got out of the van to attack him. If she had just taken the ticket she would have been on her way. Thank God no one did get shot.

    The last comment by KT is stupid and evil. The officer is REQUIRED by LAW to Identify the THREAT before he uses deadly force. He shot at unknown someone’s fleeing the scene of a misdemeanor. This is America not Nazi Germany. The woman does not legally have to sign the Ticket. To attempt to book her for a misdemeanor when she has children is just plain evil on the part of the police. She gets a citation and she can drive off. She does not have to obey a police officer who is trying to detain her for not signing the ticket. Those cops are in a lot of trouble.

    fled because she had drugs or the police planted them. Shooting at the car was stupid, smashing the windows was stupid. Even O. J. got an escort

    A WOMEN OFFICER SHOULD OF BEEN CALLED ON THE SCENE ONCE SHE WAS OUT OF THE VEHICLE,,TELLING A WOMEN TO TURN AROUND /AND PLUS SHE WAS DEBATING THE SPEED …SHE WAS TRYING TO MAKE IT WHERE SHE HAD WITNESS …….
