Hilarious Russian police chase
YouTube- Russian police chase / shooting VS. BMW525
So, the Russian police decide to chase someone with their sirens flashing. Since it's Russia and not the US they're apparently allowed to open fire on fleeing suspects. However, this doesn't seem to help them in the slightest since they run themselves out of ammo and the only evidence I see of anything remotely resembling a hit is a bullet hole in the rear windshield of the suspect's car towards the end of the video, in the lower left hand side.
I cannot believe how bad those police seem to be at shooting. How can they miss such a large target so close to them? Were they majorly jerking the trigger due to excitement?Best Vietnam War music video I've ever seen put together by a vet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDY8raKsdfg

I think they were trying to shoot the tires.
Your options are pretty limited when you're in a Skoda.

At 6 mins and 50 secs, it sort of looks like the cops come alongside the BMW, so the officer in the passenger seat points his gun at the BMW driver like he's saying: "Pull over or I'll shoot you!"

It's a vehicle getting shot with a Low Velocity 9x18mm HJP. The bullets may be hitting the vehicle without penetrating.
I wonder if they're beating the life out of the perp off camera at the end.

You know, this reminds me of a famous Russian game show, where a bunch of guys in a car try to outrun a cop that tries his damnest to stop them. If they get away, they win a large cash prize.
I believe the catch is, they have to have their own camera man in the car.
Overall, not one of Russian television producer's brightest moments.
For the record, the majority of the officers shown in above video are most likely innebriated, and as such, fail to hit their target.

They all seem very content to fire (and miss) at the vehicle and make no attempt to use their vehicles to stop them.

I know a police officer who had the experience of attempting to shoot out the tires of a Ford Crown Victoria after a suspect decided to trade vehicles with him. He hit the rim and tires on the passenger side and put at least three holes in the two passenger-side tires with 230-grain .45 acp (I think--I know it was .45acp.)
He shot the tires with the car nearly standing still, then pursued the suspect in the suspect's vehicle. The chase covered several miles of interstate at high speeds. What he found later was that the holes in the sidewall very nearly sealed themselves; the bullets were hollow points, but of course, no fluids, no expansion, so they punched small holes through the rubber, stretched it around the slug, and the holes then contracted to a size much smaller than .451-inch. The tires eventually flattened, but it took time. Nothing like the movies!
