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 lesson being missed here is to keep cops out of family business. It never works out well for anyone. Sounds like a good idea when your pissed, but once the cops arrive any control of the situation by those involved goes out the window. Teenagers are ****ing morons. I was, and I'm sure not all of you were angels. I don't feel like a kid should pay for their immature brains and shitty parents with their lives.

This. The Dad wanted to teach him a lesson....which would have ended up with major jail time. Instead the kid died.

They told him to back while he was actively engaging the guy.

Then, the dude proceeded to ram the **** out of him. He was unarmed? I dunno, ramming a big ass truck into a car seems like a weapon to me.

I am not a friend of shitty cops. But in this case? Dude will be back at work.

It is never a good thing when a young kid loses his life. No one, including officers, wants to ever see that happen.

But a decision on a crisis situation in a moment is made by an officer based on 'apprehension of fear'. The officer is not taught to stop and think about the age of the A.P.

Interestingly enough, if this was a story about a 37 year old guy that did the same thing, nobody would really care and it wouldn't be making the national headlines.

Yep, maybe 20-30 years ago what the dad did was a good idea. Now once you have the government involved its a never ending pit. IF the child is underage they will send DCS after you and maybe have your child taken away. Back in the day the Officer would play along, scare the shit out of the kid, put the kid in jail for a night or so, and that would be the end of it. Nowdays you will be dragged through count and maybe go to jail yourself.

Watch the video, he rams cops 6 times or so before they opened fire on him. Not to mention driving insane with a trailer attached swinging back and forth like a wrecking ball (which later he lost), as well as blowing through a red light and ALMOST demolishing some innocent person in the process.

Yea sorry kid, you ****ed up.

The police knew it was only a stolen car. There was no violent crime or murder trying to get away. When the son started speeding up through that intersection and pedistrian traffic everywhere the cops should have backed off. Catch him after the innocent public is out of danger.

Too many of these car chases result in some innocent deaths.
