Two Missouri Suspects Injured In Shootout with Police

............

Associated Press

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Two suspects were injured early Thursday after a shootout with police at a McDonald's restaurant.

Undercover officers spotted a truck taken during a carjacking at the drive-thru of the restaurant, police spokesman Anthony Marcinkiewicz said. One of the officers placed spike strips in front of the truck, which included three occupants.

"As he walked away from the vehicle, the suspects began shooting at him,"
Marcinkiewicz said.

A shootout between the suspects and police ensued. No officers were hurt, but two of the three suspects were shot. They were in stable condition. Their injuries were not considered life-threatening, Marcinkiewicz said.

The men jumped out of the truck and ran before officers caught them.

Names of the officers and suspects were not released. The officers were on paid administrative leave during an internal investigation that is standard in any case where officers are involved in a shooting, Marcinkiewicz said.

If I had to bet: the officers will eventually lose their jobs. They will definitely be financially ruined by the lawsuits that are sure to come. The dirtbags will sue EVERYONE and be set for life. They'll piss it all away in a matter of months and 2 of the 3, if not all 3, will end up dead from some deviant behavior.

Why wouldn't you just confront/arrest them, instead of placing a spike strip

I found this story strangely entertaining...

Just the mental picture of some plain clothes cop trying to throw spike strips under a stole car in the Mikey D's drive through. While two scrotes are ordering their Big Mac's and Dippin' Dots

To prevent endangering the public with a high speed pursuit. Car chases kill lots of innocent bystanders. They should be avoided when possible.

Last man on earth I'd want to be was the officer who pulled the shortest straw and had to lay that spike strip.

Who ended up getting the food?

Or did the McD's staffers issue a refund and give the money to the officers to go in the criminals property?
