Weapons drawn in the Walmart parking lot is pretty stupid given all the innocent people that could get hit by a stray round. Once rounds are fire, who knows where they will wind up. Better to have tailed the suspects and pulled them over in a coordinated stop elsewhere. We don't need the Wild West in Mountain View.

This is why I shop at Target. Glad to see the MV-Voice locked this article down to only registered users.
Don't want to hurt anyone's feelings with insensitive remarks and have my post deleted.
