When John Lennon sang "Instant Karma's gonna get you, gonna knock you off your feet," chances are he wasn't thinking about accidentally running yourself over with your own car while fleeing police.

San Francisco police on Tuesday released new officer body camera video of a chaotic officer-involved shooting that resulted in no injuries earlier this month.
The footage shows officers in a shootout with a homicide suspect inside an RV on a city street Feb. 17.
Seven officers fired 65 rounds after suspect Joel Armstrong fired two shots from inside the RV, police said.

They found the stolen truck parked by the RV at De Haro and Alameda, an area filled with people living in vehicles and tents.
After a two-hour standoff, shots were fired. Nearby residents say they would like to see the area cleaned up. "I know it's bad to have assumptions about homeless, but they scare me," Olivia Yang said.

Louisville lawyers are going to bat for the family of a western Kentucky man fatally shot by police. The incident happened in Fulton and was caught on the officer body's camera video. The footage was captured in January 16 2017. Police say 43-year-old Charles Christopher McClure was swinging a metal pole at parked cars and breaking windows. His lawyers acknowledge there was also a knife taped to the poll, and that McClure had some mental health issues. They say he was so upset, because he hadn't been able to see his kids. When Fulton Police were called, McClure started to take his frustrations out on the chief's SUV. He called for backup, then lawyer's say Officer James "Buck" Buckingham showed up and seconds later fired two shots.
McClure died at the hospital. Louisville lawyers say his life didn't have to end that way and that officers acted with unnecessary force. The attorneys also claim there was a cover up afterward to make it seem like Buckingham should have fired his gun. For those reasons, McClure's family has sued the officer, the city of Fulton and Kentucky State Police investigators. "I think the brunt of the lawsuit really stems from the fact that after Chris is on the ground, 'Buck' comes up to him, and from point blank range, without any justification, no reason whatsoever, fires an execution shot," said attorney Larry Forman.
Teachers and staff didn't see a weapon when a suspended student entered their school on Jan. 26 and threatened to shoot them, but they believed he had access to one, a police report says.
Their fears were confirmed when police caught 18-year-old Eric D. Knox carrying a loaded .22 revolver in his backpack after unsuccessfully fleeing Western Career Prep High School on foot.
Knox had threatened to open fire on a teacher after the teacher approached him and asked why he was on school property, according to a Jackson County Sheriff's Office report obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.
Police were called to the school at approximately 7:53 a.m. Knox had been recently suspended after making several threats to another student, a school administrator told them.
A township police officer is facing criminal charges after punching a suspect who was already handcuffed and in the back seat of a police car.
Prosecutors say the cop also tried to cover up the incident. Todd Ritter, 54, of Millstone, was charged last week with third-degree tampering with public records, fourth-degree falsifying and tampering with records, and a disorderly persons offense of assault.
Ritter was suspended without pay from his $122,000 job pending the resolution of the criminal case. He has almost 22 years of service.
The Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office released few details about the incident but, in response to an Open Public Records Act request by New Jersey 101.5, released a copy of a video recorded by a camera in the police officer's car. In the two-minute video, dated Feb. 12, the suspect is seen handcuffed in the backseat of the car telling police on the scene that he had been beaten by an officer even though he had not resisted.
At least five students were arrested Friday as hundreds of others from several Stockton high schools walked out of classes in protest of gun violence after last week's deadly shooting at a Florida high school.
Students at Stagg, Edison, Chavez, Lincoln and Village Oak high schools were walking along streets, creating traffic problems in the area as streets were blocked off.
Stockton police said some students threw rocks and damaged both police and citizen vehicles.
Five arrests were made, including charges of battery on an officer, resisting arrest, taking an officer's baton and vandalizing vehicles, including patrol vehicles, Stockton police said.
Those arrested ranged from 14-years-old to 18-years-old. The 18-year-old was booked into the San Joaquin County Jail and the juveniles were cited to their parents, according to Stockton Police.
During one incident, an officer approached a group of students attempting to leave a school by jumping a fence. When the officer approached the students, police said they fought with the officer and took his baton.
“Sources are telling us that the deputies who arrived at the scene of the shooting were told not to enter the school unless their body cameras were turned on. Then we found out that the deputies did not have body cameras so they did not enter the building or engage the shooter,” Ingraham said.
