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.

One less dumbass in the world. He could have easily killed several people at that intersection.

After he slammed into that cop car the chase wasn't going to be called off.

Suicide by cop/Darwin award/etc. Feel bad for the dad. I don't blame him for not being able to see what really happened.

You are right. Dude was a dumbass. Sometimes people need to stop and think that in certain situations the price you pay for your actions can be deadly. Not a simple, "dad calls cops to teach son a lesson article."

Media should've titled it, "Man rams cop cars and puts the life of a public servant in jeopardy."

Look at the bright side......in an effort to teach his son a lesson (not to act out towards his father) he managed to teach society an even bigger lesson (obey lawful orders given by police officers and don't give the appearance that you are considering using your vehicle as a weapon).

Listened to the audio, it may turn out bad for the cop.

Its said a couple of times in there "If he's that reckless, just back it off." "WE KNOW THE SUSPECT, JUST BACK OFF."

Let him think he's gotten away, then pick his ass up at home and charge him with everything he did.

I don't dispute that the kid was stupid and shouldn't have run. However, if we simply accept that in every instance you don't do what the police tell you to then you deserve to DIE for it, you start a journey down a VERY slippery slope.

Police killing people has gotten REALLY common. While there are no shortages of dumbasses in the world, it wasn't always like this. Cops used to arrest people all the time in some pretty extreme situations. Hell, Ive seen worse chases than this one televised on both COPS and World's Scariest Police Chases where the perps are taken ALIVE, and not gunned down simplry sitting in the vehicle while it is running.

There really was no reason for this kid to die had professional police officers handled this incident.

Well, back in the day a cop also might worked a wife beater over with his fists or let a kid who'd been caught in trouble the first time go by dropping him off to his parents - without fear that if the car video gets looked at he'll be fired.

It seems like police used to have more latitude and opportunity to work with members of the community, and that they knew people in that community and had relationships with them. Things seem more beurocratic and black and white now.

And beyond that, our litigation society has made it so they have to worry so much more about getting sued or facing criminal charges for the details of the manner in which they do things. They have cameras and microphones watching them all the time. Doesn't it seem like police used to have more ability to be autonomous?

There are people of bad character in every profession, and we also can't always expect people to pause and evaluate with calm contemplation what they should do when someone who they have at gunpoint tries to hit them with their car.

Police today are being tasked with the jobs parents have not done, mopping up for all the messed up home environment kids who were never parented or disciplined or had any rules. It's not what police should be.

Exactly. Never trust the media. I could smell the bullshit emanating from the original posted link. There was OBVIOUSLY more to the story.

Has it really? (Not calling you out)

I'd be curious to see the numbers. Are more killed by police or does the intrawebs make it seem that way?

I'd think, with tazers/beanbags/pepper spray/etc..., that less are killed.
