Road Rage Deputy Goes Nuts, Pulls Out His Gun and Shoots Innocent Woman in the Head While Driving

deputy charged
TEXAS — An innocent woman has been shot in the head after reports say a driver with “road rage” opened fire on her.
The driver, Deputy Kenneth Caplan, is being charged for the shooting.
The shooting took place in southwest Houston when the woman was driving on the 610 South Loop during rush hour.
The woman was startled when Deputy Caplan maneuvered his vehicle so as to cut her off — presumably he thought that he owned the road.
When she was cut-off, the woman honked her horn at Deputy Caplan.
She then accelerated to pass Deputy Caplan. Once she passed him, she thought that the incident was over and she could drive peacefully again.
What she didn’t know is that Deputy Caplan was speeding up again alongside her, and this time he had his gun out.
The woman leaned back her head and miraculously avoided death — because she leaned back in a split second, Deputy Caplan’s bullet grazed her head instead of penetrating her skull. “This case is one in a million. I don’t ever see this,” said a doctor at  Memorial Hermann Hospital, commenting on how lucky the woman is to be alive.
With a “second chance” at life, the woman is using her energy to fight for justice and speak out against Deputy Caplan.
“He tried to kill me,”she said, adding “I’m worried that since he’s a cop, they’re going to let him off easy.”
Her worries seem to be justified, since Deputy Caplan has been charged only with “aggravated assault with a deadly weapon” — so far avoiding the charge of attempted murder.

This mans drivers license should be revoked. His right to carry and/or own a firearm of any type should be revoked. He should be tried and jailed for attempted murder. He should not be allowed to serve on any police force or security company anywhere again.

That's what should happen.

Odds are that the police will circle the wagons around this "trained police officer" and get him off the hook with minimum everything.

The practice of police departments absolutely refusing to weed out the bad apples in their ranks is obvious everywhere and will bring about dire consequences for them when the people finally get fed up with lunatic - but protected - cops keep running amok and escaping justice.

Bob - I agree with you 100%.

Cops shouldn't be held to some imaginary higher standard, there should be an actual law stipulating it.
Like a citizen can get 5 - 10 years for a specific crime, if you commit it while you are a cop 10 -20 years.
