Best Insp Kurt doesn't get chased by the cops in America- he'll be in for a nasty shot!

From the Bangkok Post, "...was shot dead after he opened fire at arresting police after a chase."

Yep...i see at least 12 bullets impacts at the car ? Maybe i cant counting or it seems 2 weapons involved. mmmh.

Got to agree with Kurt, how was he fleeing if he was sat in his car and a police officer could shoot him, seems very fishy!

Shot dead sitting in car while fleeing police?  Excuse me, do I miss something?  He was not a immediate danger to any police officer to give police a reason to be shot dead while fleeing.
Seems police acted not according thai police gun instructions.
Police info here is very limited as well. Mostly you read a lot about 'believes' and so by a captain or colonel. But not here.
