Stop crying about Valencia being hit by a police squad car!

Are you still crying about Valencia being hit by a squad car?

Save your tears for the weak and the dying.  Check out his crime spree that day....via CNN...
Timeline of events
Tucson Police Sgt. Pete Dugan told CNN that Valencia was involved in several incidents there the day he was struck.
At 6:45 a.m. on February 19, Valencia allegedly robbed a 7-Eleven in Tucson with a metal object in his hand. Authorities said he was dressed only in his underwear. He was charged with theft.
A little more than an hour later, police said, Valencia set a fire at a church for which he was charged with arson of an occupied structure.
Just after that he entered a home and stole a car, police said.
Authorities said he drove to a Walmart in Marana, where he allegedly stole a .30-30 rifle and ammunition. He fled the store with Walmart employees in pursuit.

Police encountered him in a business park walking down the road. An officer told him several times to drop the rifle, Lt. Tim Brunenkant with Marana police said in an email containing a timeline of events.
Valencia, police said, walked away from the officer, turned a corner and stopped. Valencia pointed the rifle at the officer then walked away again toward a Coca-Cola bottling plant and another business.
"As Mario Valencia briskly walked towards Sargent Controls (local manufacturer), Officer Michael Rapiejko uses his marked police car to stop the dangerous situation Mario Valencia created," Brunenkant wrote.
Brunenkant also said by phone that before Rapiejko's encounter with Valencia, the suspect had pointed the rifle at his head multiple times and threatened suicide before fleeing.
Rozema said that Valencia's firing of the weapon, his refusal to obey the first officer's commands to drop the gun and the pointing of the gun at the officer were key.
"And so you have another officer who sees and seizes an opportunity to end the threat and put an end to the situation," the chief said.
Judge each event on its own merits.

When cops fuck up then slam'em like a piece of cold meat....When they do good, stand up cheer and tell them good job.

Hey did good!

Sidenote:  This might be nitpicking but I have an issue with the officer that was following behind "relaying" information.  I wish someone would interview him and find out what he was thinking.  It wasn't shown in the video but if this guy pointed a weapon at police and he failed to take action then do we have the police equivalent of "cowardice under fire"?
