Only the police should have guns

MRS: 16 shots, at point-blank range, and he hit his man-sized, non-moving target with less than 50% of the shots!

    Having spent a fair amount of time in the urban crime environment observing and walking around with city cops…I can tell you that it’s not a mystery to the bad guys that if you’re on the ground and the officer says let me see your hands and you refuse and then make a furtive movement…you’re gonna get shot a whole bunch. Yeah it’s concerning that the cop can’t hit something two feet away more than half the time, but there’s nothing on that video that indicates justifiable or not.

    The other two shootings sound justifiable–but Chicago will still pay because they engaged in negligent retention.

    The hit ratio is not the most troubling issue in this shooting.

    50 percent (more or less) is not all that bad but… having to fire 16 rounds is. Where did the other nine rounds go?

    As for the back shots, the cop could have been shooting and the guy turned fast due to the hits and that is how he got hit in the back.

    This is especially true as the autopsy showed the fatal ones were from the back and thus the ones in front were not.

    Except that the video shows that that is not the case. From the original article that MRS linked to:

    Then, according to the video, the veteran officer, Gildardo Sierra, stepped onto the parkway and walked a semicircle about the prone Farmer as three bright flashes went off.

    The flashes, captured by a police car video camera, were fatal shots fired into Farmer’s back, officials say.

    The fatal shots to the back were fired while the victim was proned out on the ground.

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
