KC police fire at backfiring van

Two Kansas City police officers who thought they were being shot at from inside a van returned fire Thursday night.

Only later did police realize that the van was actually backfiring and the man inside was not armed. He was not injured by the shots fired by police.

Windows of the police car were apparently shot out by the officers as they exited the patrol car.

The officers were dispatched on a report of shots being fired from a white van just before 6 p.m. Thursday on Gregory Boulevard near Interstate 435.

When the officers got to the area they saw a white van parked on Gregory and pulled up near it. As they were getting out of the patrol car they heard the backfiring and fired their weapons. Police are continuing to investigate the incident.

But, but...it's hard being a cop. Any loud noise or failure to comply with direct orders must result in SHOTS BEING FIRED.

just realized i was nearby when this happened: i was on gregory at blue ridge when two cop cars came to block westbound traffic right next to me, i was at the eastbound stoplight. one was visibly angry when he got out to direct traffic, he was flailing his arms with much force. i thought that was strange behavior for what i thought was probably a traffic accident down the street; it had been raining for about an hour.

WTF kind of firearm sounds like a backfiring van?

A rifle's going to have that high-pressure 'twang' to it and a handgun has a very staccato crack.

Backfiring vehicles sound like black cats. The only handgun or rifle that sounds anything like that is found on television.

I guess you could mistake it for a shotgun or something. But really, the sounds alone should be enough to keep someone from firing a weapon when a vehicle backfires. They don't really sound that similar.

I swear to Og, the idiots that are allowed to wear a badge would not last long in any other line of work. A backfiring van? And they shoot their own windows out in an attempt to kill the Mystery Machine?

Fuck, what kind of protocol does the KCMO PD use for deadly force? I mean did the van make any futive moves?

These morons will be demoted to security guards at track and field events where they will eventually kill whoever is unlucky enough to be using the starting pistol.

Obviously you're not trained to know what a rifle sounds like. A trained cop knows that a rifle can sound like a backfiring van. They are also up to date on all the new high tech guns, even the ones that look like weed baggies.

They know what they're doing.

The fact they shot the windows out of their car trying to return fire should be grounds for termination alone.

Okay. It's like this, okay? We get some beans. Lots of beans. Then we kidnap Cassel and force feed him beans for like ... two days, okay? Then we blindfold him and tie his arms behind his back and set him loose at night so he has to walk home in the dark, okay? Then ... he farts, okay?

The cops think it's gunfire and .... VOILA!!!! ... Croyle's the starter.

Holy shit. When I skimmed through that, I thought they shot out the van's windows. They shot out their own? That's hilarious... and very, very sad.

Nothing worse than a paranoid high strung man with a gun. (and a badge)

After they heard the "shots" and drew their weapons, they both saw see-through men outside their windows holding guns. The men mysteriously disappeared after the officers shot out their windows.

I'm not sure this would work. Cassel hasn't been the most successful passing anything this year...
