Dad Calls Cops on Son to Teach Him a Lesson, Cops Shoot Son Dead

http://gawker.com/dad-calls-cops-on-...oot-1460159897

A father's attempt to teach his son a lesson for taking his truck without permission ended in tragedy Monday after a local police officer shot the teenager dead.

James Comstock told the Des Moines Register he called the police on his son Tyler after the latter took the former's truck in retaliation for refusing to buy him cigarettes.

Ames Police Officer Adam McPherson reportedly spotted the lawn care company vehicle and pursued it onto the Iowa State University campus, where a brief standoff ensued after Tyler allegedly refused orders to turn off the engine.

McPherson eventually fired six shots into the truck, two of which struck Tyler who was later pronounced dead.

The official report claims the action was necessary in order "to stop the ongoing threat to the public and the officers."

Tyler's dad says he was unarmed at the time.

"So he didn't shut the damn truck off, so let's fire six rounds at him?" exclaimed Gary Shepley, Tyler's step-grandfather. "We're confused, and we don't understand."

James said his son had his fair share of minor troubles with the law, and was distraught over a recent breakup with his girlfriend, but was in the process of turning his life around, and was working on obtaining his GED at Des Moines Area Community College.

"He was a smart kid. He made his own computers. He was interested in IT," James told the Register.

The family's demands for answers got even louder following the revelation that a member of the Ames police department suggested twice that officers call off the chase.

"He took off with my truck. I call the police, and they kill him," James said. ""It was over a damn pack of cigarettes."

McPherson is currently on paid leave pending the results of his department's investigation.

So if an A.P. shot someone in a residential neighborhood and then took off on the run, you'd prefer LE not pursue him because they might 'stoke' him up a little bit, making him more likely to shoot additional people???

Sounds like a good idea.

Your synopsis of what I have said on this subject is so far off the mark I have to question your ability to comprehend English.

No action will be taken against the officer because the kid's father is an officer and probably would have used the same, poor judgement. I have family in law-enforcement and in no way want to belittle the service that they provide to communities. But the fact remains that any person without a criminal record, sane or not, can become a police officer. When there is no one to police the police, lives are taken unnecessarily. Give power to men and let them feel like they are above the law and they'll murder a kid for not shutting a truck off.

There is a reason that we have a larger prison population than some countries' total population. Our justice system is broken, as is the police force enforcing it.

Yes, that is exactly what the officers we're doing here; trying to catch a car thief.

It's not like they were trying to protect other innocent citizens from this idiot going on a rampage with his dad's truck.

He was on a rampage in his dad's truck because they were chasing him.

If you say so. A former Chief of Police I know would agree with my assessment of this situation. But I guess you know better than him.

Right. The officers MADE him irrational. It's their fault. I mean, the kid stole a truck and took off because someone wouldn't buy him some cigarettes.

Clearly, he was thinking rationally before the car chase ever happened.

Herp . . . . derp.

I work in law enforcement, asshole.

Your FORMER chief or police friend is an idiot and doesn't follow what ANY current academy teaches.

This is not 30 years ago. Times have changed.

I'm not saying he wasn't at fault. He clearly was. But once the chase became a serious danger to civilians in the area, they should have stopped the pursuit. He wasn't endangering anyone until the cops started chasing him, he was just a car thief.
