I don't mean to sound cold, and this is a travesty for all involved, but if you pull a gun on a cop, you die. I believe this woman knew the consequences and it was essentially a suicide.
How many times are they going to change this story to protect the cop?
Nonau55...what do you mean? You should share links to past articles to illustrate how the story has changed. I'm not saying you're wrong, mind you, they may have I just want to see why I should agree with you (this is the first article that I've seen on it since it was originally reported).
From other articles I've read when this came out last fall, this officer is quick to pull the trigger. I don't recall that there was initially a gun that was pointed at the officer when this first came out. Search for the original stories and you'll see this officer is being protected. There's a lot more involved than just a car chase and pointing a gun at a cop. This woman first sought help at a police station for mental help and was turned away.
