    Don’t you just hate it when the police shoot that many bullets at you that fast? Someone could get hurt.

  2. steve l. Says:

    read elsewhere there were 47 hits, batting .343 without collateral hits rates them ahead of NYPD

  3. Bob Barker Says:

    After all that it turns out they weren’t even armed. Someone “heard a shot”.

    “Qualified Immunity”

    Every cops get out of jail free card.

    I will follow this story with interest.

  5. Hartley Says:

    Not sure there wasn’t “collateral damage”, Steve – they admit that several police cars had police-inflicted holes in them – and I bet if they nicked a few of their fellow officers, they might not admit it..

    All those cops and nobody had a throwdown?

  7. Sebastian Says:

    Sounds like the NYPD have themselves some competition!

    Even if each cop had a 15 round magazine in his gun for a total of 195 rounds of ammo, I’d be willing to bet that at least one or two or three of those cops shot their entire wads and had to grab for a second magazine. And what was it Senator Donne Trotter said about cops…?

    “…police officers who have gone through the extensive training, who have had the psychological evaluations…”

    [I removed the key word “not” twice as he was referring to you and me because we’re NOT highly trained and evaluated professionals]

    There was some statistic, from the Korean War, some now say since debunked, that there was one enemy death from every 50,000 shots fired. ?

    @ nk: Based on this most recent incident, I’d be inclined to believe it.
