Saturday Shooting

About 4pm Saturday afternoon my sister and I were driving down Idaho street. Our niece saw a police officer with a sniper rifle. Thought we would park and watch.

Where's the sound? My speaker is turned up & so is the speaker in this video. Without sound, I have no idea what happened once the officers & the man in cuffs, disappeared out of sight.

WOW , you are nosy! get a life and stay out of others. Apparently this situation did not concern you.

That is obviously a M16 / AR-15 type of Assault Rifle. It is not a "sniper" rifle. Next time do try to include sound. Since this person is a You News reporter, they have every right to videotape the police. Be careful, though.

I think it's cool you got the video but what if they shot in your direction, you weren't that far from the police, Next time take shelter behind something and stay quiet, you could actually make things worse for the police and yourselves.

It's not even a shooting, why is it labeled "Saturday Shooting?"

It is not like the streets are blocked off, I see people and cars driving by, its only a cop with a rifle which is to scare the perp into getting cuffed, looks like it was under control and no need to have a rifle but he did so no big deal here.

Some supervisors do not have a pistol but do have a rifle or shotgun in the car if needed. From the beginning of the video I saw that the guy with rifle was backing up the other officer who already had the guy on the ground and was putting handcuffs

What you did was unsafe, especially for your little niece. You took a risk for what? This is a very poor video. Why would we want to see it? I don't know why I clicked on it, because I hate violence. Next time, THINK before you ACT!

O.K. without the insults... Gun--AR-15 semi-auto rifle--.223 caliber; fixed sights, polycarb/fiberglass stock components. Solid point bullet w/ ~2,000 fps velocity. I don't know why traffic was not blocked. Cell phone cam. Any more questions?

Part 2. See below for rifle. I think most people would have been curious also. It seemed like he was already monitoring a cuffed priosoner and waiting for other officers to arrive. Uniform color of 2nd ofcr looked like a deputy jailer if BG.

why do people find it necessary to insult and belittle someone for their actions. if you disagree, say so. but there is absolutely no need to throw out absurd insults. If i had seen this i would have video taped it too. not because im nosy...

Silent Outburst says ... on Friday, Jul 2 at 2:25 PM

but because we as American citizens have an obligation and a duty, to make sure that our law enforcement maintain, and are held to the same standards we are.

Silent Outburst says ... on Friday, Jul 2 at 2:28 PM

the Rodney King beating and countless other horrific things would have gone unnoticed if not for a keen citizen with a camera. what this person has done is investigative reporting. something im sure most of u praise everyday as u watch the 6pm news.

Silent Outburst says ... on Friday, Jul 2 at 2:32 PM

to the individuals who posted this video: while i do agree it could have been done in a safer manor, and of coarse sound wouldve made it better. but overall, great work, and keep doing what your doing.
