Philadelphia Police Officer Shoots Suspect

By Wyatt Earp | October 8, 2008

Once again, for those of you not paying attention: If you try to take a Philadelphia Police officer’s gun, you’re gonna pay for it.

PHILADELPHIA ― A Philadelphia Police officer was injured and two suspects were wounded following a pursuit in the Port Richmond section of the city Tuesday.

Police were called to the 2900 block of Salmon Street after reports of a suspect with a gun just before 3 p.m. Arriving officers began pursuit of a red minivan matching the description of eyewitness reports.

The minivan crashed into a tree a short time later and the suspects attempted to flee on foot.

An officer was involved with a brief struggle with one of the suspects, which resulted with the suspect being shot in the stomach.

“The officer’s training is to retain that gun at all costs,” said Philadelphia Police Lieutenant Frank Vanore. “One of the suspects was hit one time and that was from the officer’s gun.” (H/T - CBS3)

Officer unharmed. Thug shot in the stomach. Sounds like a good job to me.

    Good to know it was a bad guy that got shot and not a good guy.

    Charlie (my 6 year old) say the pic of Wyatt Earp here and recognized it. Of course we’re been reading about Mr. Earp and the importance of police officers, standing up for what’s right, and while fighting is not a good thing, sometimes it is a necessary thing.

    Another n0bama supporter hassled by the po-po.

    How long before some “justice” or “action” group stirs the pot?

    I am sorry the shitem failed to achieve room temperature in this encounter. Maybe next time.

    Also, I wonder what this turd’s mother is going to do when she finds out her “baby” smashed up her grocery getter?

    Oh I know. Blame the po-po. (sounds like the making of a hippy folk song)

    Training, Training, and More Training. It pays off. Well done, and glad the officer was not hurt.

    Kim - The real Wyatt Earp was a good guy. I’m kind of a dick.

    Morgan - It happens here sometimes.

    JumpOut - I’ll drink to that!

    Rick - Bout time!

    Jason - “But he was a good boy who was going back to school and helping old ladies cross the street!”

    Old Soldier - Agreed on all counts.

    Old NFO - Another toad trying to hurt a cop. It’s an epidemic here.

    Trixie - It’s always a good day when someone who tries to hurt a cop gets theirs.

    Admiral - At least not in close combat.
