HANOVER TOWNSHIP -- Authorities in Luzerne County now say a police shooting last month was justified.

The district attorney's office says Bong Bob Kim tried to run over two Wilkes-Barre police officers at a busy shopping plaza in Hanover Township.

That's when an officer fired three shots, hitting Kim once.

That officer, identified as Joseph Sinavage, has been cleared of any wrongdoing.

    Drug dealer attempts to run over cops. Cop shoots to stop drug dealer from trying to run him over. Move on to the next case, this isn’t a “cover up” or “hate crime” etc.

    There should have no question about it-a ridiculous waste of time and taxpayers money.The police certainly were justified.One wonders if this scumbag weren’t a minority,would there have been this stupid investigation.

    Maybe that was justified, but what about the truck driver who was pulled over near Buckhorn on Interstate 80 (by a town cop) and was shot? It seems as if you’re issued a badge you can choose if one is worthy of life.
