Dashcam video showed the deputies in each of their cruisers following a car as it turned onto a street and then into the driveway of a house in a residential neighborhood in Cocoa, which is about 45 miles east of Orlando. It was not clear how long the deputies had been following the car.

The police said that Mr. Crooms then drove at Deputy Santiago-Miranda, who fired his gun “in an attempt to stop the deadly threat of the car from crashing into him.” On the video, at least eight shots could be heard striking the car.

“Out of harm’s way, the deputy moved closer to get a better shot,” and fired with the “intent to kill,” and “then kept firing as the car passed by,” Mr. Crump wrote.

“Please, don’t shoot! Please, don’t shoot! My baby’s in that car!” she recalled screaming. Deputy Santiago-Miranda then fired, even though the car with the teenagers inside was turning away from him, she said.

The car was not stolen. It was owned by the driver's girlfriend. In the article the police spokesperson repeatedly said that officers' lives were threatened. I'll bet with anyone: these cops will be back on patrol in a couple of weeks after a paid vacation ... I mean suspension.

1. murderers

I just hope our Justice Department can start looking at these type of murders. These two cops need prison time. I know these are just local racists but the pattern of death and destruction perpetrated by cops like these must be investigated. I don't know how I just hope there is a way to investigate at the federal level. And a baby was in the car.

2. Cold blooded murderers. That cop shot those kids over something that only required ...

checking into on the radio. Didn't even require "contacting the driver". He shot them because they pissed him off.

3. Cops are not supposed to be judge, jury, & executioner.

No one is.
