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 criminals when done being chased turn into law abiding citizens who follow the law.

Was the kid driving like a crazed lunatic BEFORE the cops started chasing him, or after? The dispatchers told them to abandon the chase, this is why.

I'm saying that a dangerous high speed chase through the middle of town is likely to get an innocent killed. Is an innocent's life worth catching the bad boy who stole his daddy's truck? Especially when you already know who he is and where he lives?

How about the Dad doesn't waste the police's time when the bad boy steals daddy's truck? The second he called the cops and reported his vehicle stolen....he opened up a can of worms.

What happens if they don't kill this kid? What do you think the Dad would say when they arrest the kid for attempted murder? Assault on a police officer? Grand theft auto?

You don't get it...you are still trying to lay the blame on LE for this guy being an idiot.

Sure, not blazing through town after a potential felon could/would reduce the potential to injure bystanders. However, each case is unique. The cops are not in the wrong for attempting to take this guy into custody. He is in the wrong for running and in the end took his life into his own hands when he chose to use the truck as a weapon.

There has to be more "unknown" to this story. No dumbass attempts to ram cop cars because his dad didn't buy him a pack of cigarettes.

The dad shouldn't have called the cops. I really don't care what the dad would say when they arrested his kid. But the dad did call the cops. They chased him and the chase got dangerous. They should have backed off and let him go and picked him up later. Catching a car thief isn't worth endangering innocent lives just so the cops get to play Starsky and Hutch.

Well as soon as that gets out.....every criminal will be driving through packed neighborhoods when the cops try and pull them over.

Honest question: do you get to refuse a call if you want to?

So i guess you wouldn't care if your wife or daughter got rammed and killed during the chase as long as they catch that car thief, or the guy with a half oz of weed in his car.

Yep....because that's where I was going with it.

But that's ok....because everyone is fully aware that when the cop backs off....the criminal goes back to following the traffic laws.
