    Great recipe the right has there.
    Or, the government could stop killing jobs and we could generate the tax revenue needed to pay those public employees. I know the Libbos thinks that's just a crazy notion, but it's worth mentioning.

    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.

    Or maybe we should actually fire the LEOs who used such poor judgment as to wound 8 civilians. I mean, really, that's pretty pathetic.

    Don't really see that happening here. Just questions so far. But there is an expectation of all law enforcement professionals to be trained and proficient in their use of fire arms. One of the core foundations of any LE firearms trainings is to be very aware of your surroundings, especially in regards to bystanders.

    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."

    Agreed.

    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?

    If the citizens in the area had been armed, there'd probably be a whole lot more people dead and wounded. LEO's have a split second to make a decision to fire. They can't be askin' for people's permits. Anyone using that argument here is out of touch with reality.

    So, you are saying that the cops should have waited until he shot at them to return fire?

    I wonder if they still kept shooting after he went down.

    honestly, I hadnt thought about the police shooting the permit holder.

    I guess if they will put 20+ rounds down range they are not really thinking about properly identifying a target.
