It's so cute to watch all the "if only the citizens had been armed" conservatives now shift into high gear and blame the the cops. Lol. Hindsight is 20/20.

I'll say this, if the report of fragments causing the injuries is accurate, it was more than likely unavoidable. They fired 16 shots between two officers so I wouldn't even say it was fire control problem either.
This is just a case of crappy reporting as the headlines says "Bystanders Shot by Police."
The guy pointed his gun at them sure, but he never fired.
Then these trigger happy cops fired 16 rounds at the guy and injured 9 civilians.
These cops should have fired less rounds considering all the people around...even if that puts them in more harms way, imo.
Serve and protect? Who, themselves? At the expense of civilians?

Thank you, Quazi!
As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!
I wonder if they still kept shooting after he went down.

I would love to say i am surprised, but I have seen NYC's finest shoot.
