WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

I'm surpised the guy was able to move after that.

I first watched it without sound and though it was just an accident. How did all those police officers get there so fast?

That's a rough way of taking a guy out. I supposed he deserved it. I guess he seemed alright, with the way they carried him to the ambulance hand cuffed and belly down.

My thanks for some video on that incident a few months ago in Spain. We all knew about the dumb cluck & how they stopped him, but this is the first time I have seen the footage.

Pity is that the grenade pin did not come off where ever he had it, or if(?) he had it.

So I too am not to enthused about people like this.

Yeah, that guy picked the wrong time and place. He got what he deserved.

Although fast, that's not exactly the smartest choice of escape vehicle.

That's pretty fucked up that the Spanish cops feel they can kill someone for robbing a bank.

One, he took people as hostages. Not the smartest choice of getaway vehicle from his part. But I suppose he must really love riding, choosing a motorcycle in a situation like that.

It was pretty gruesome, the bike shattered to pieces like ceramics. But at least the cops didn't straight out shoot/snipe the guy from far. Cops in the States sometimes aren't any better, if not worse.

If you have hostages then I can see sniping the guy as a very viable option; people's lives are in danger. While this guy did commit a crime, he was no longer endangering anyone. It's like the Texan who thinks he has the right to shoot anyone as long as they are on his property uninvited.

That qualify as trespassing, so yes. lol. I'm sorta currently living in the south, so rules here are different.

And actually, that guy was endangering people, supposedly he was carrying a grenade. Which raises the question, whether the cop running over him was a good strategy to apprehend, knowing he was carrying an explosive?

And besides, when he took people as hostages, he was already scarred.
