In this case, what the police did was stupid. I can't see any excuse for it and it smells like panic.
The two women in the blue truck were illegal aliens (hard to believe in Los Angeles right). Driving very slow, no lights, and dark tinted windows. I'm sure some command (in english) was given with no response.
Over reaction by the LAPD? Yeah, ok.
I'm sure if they were after a suspect that didn't kill ove of thier own, things would have been different.
