I just got an email where an undercover El Paso police officer shot it out with three guys. The cop won.
They were trying to make a getaway on a motorcycle.
Tres Hombres, uno motorcycle? Estupido!
About a dozen great photos of the bad guys laying in the street.
I would post it but it would take forever on this dial up.
Would anyone like to post this story and photos? I can just forward the story and photos to you. Of course, you might not want to post all 12 photos but that is up to you.

Generally when done with the scene investigation the F.D. will come along and hose down the blood into the storm drain.

Yeah. I got that email a couple of weeks ago. If your not used to seeing dead bodies on the streets it can be disturbing.

In a follow-up story, local police are considering charging Mr. Lapointe with felony stupid. The usual additional charge of Ignorant in a Smart Zone will not be applied, due to the rural location of the incident, according to a police spokesman.

That is the story, and those are the photos, except I have 8 more pics.
The photos I got are little thumbnail photos, hard to make out details.

It does look more like the Phillippines than Texas.

If you don't mind, e-mail them to me. I'll see if I can blow them up and send them back to you

Sorry for the necropost but these pics are making the rounds via email and I saw this thread was linked to the story so I wanted to chime in with the results of my "research". These photos were taken in Brazil and have nothing to do with the El Paso PD. One can clearly see the name and logo of the "Gravia" company in a couple of the pics. Gravia is a company in Brazil that produces windows and doors for construction. They have 4 distribution stores and all are located in Brazil, so the pics were obviously taken in Brazil. Also, a close up of the gun the cop is holding looks a whole lot like a Beretta, not the Glock 22 which is issued to the El Paso PD.

That's not all that graphic.

If that bothers y'all,
you should've seen my thigh when I chainsawed it open.

Burger anyone?
