    How many did this officer use?

    How many? Clean straight shots, or just glances and no critical ones?


    Regardless of any guilt or innocence in this case, around eight to ten I would say.
    Why not 16 to 20?

    Because 8 to 10 is all it supposedly took.
    That is why.



    For everyone.
    This person has been doing a great job of covering it on his twitter account.
    Images and videos as well.

    This is supposedly an eyewitness. What he describes just seems to be incredibly unbelievable.

    The looting and violence is in response to the shooting of Michael Brown when, according to police, Brown and another man assaulted the police officer, there was a struggle and shots were fired, ultimately killing Brown. The two men in the alleged assault were not armed. However, a different account was provided by one Dorian Johnson, who says the struggle was initiated by the police officer, who assaulted Brown - Brown broke free and started to run when the police officer then shot Brown.

    The point of this post is NOT justifying or dismissing the shooting which was the flashpoint of the violence (though I am resigned to the fact it will devolve into that at some point) but I'm more interested in why looting is the preferred method of showing distrust and dissatisfaction with police actions, when the owners of these stores which were broken into have absolutely NOTHING to do with the police shooting. Why is looting and destroying innocent people's livelihoods the preferred method of action in these circumstances? We see this time and time again - and I'm reminded of the 1992 So.Central LA riots.
    It makes no sense to go out and damage property in protest of a police shooting, zip zero none. Particularly when the facts haven't been laid out, these people are driven by the hearsay of the neighborhood who think they know.
    I suppose if we had the answers to the question why it happens, we could solve the issue.

    I don't care about some youtube video.

    It takes 9 shots to stop an unarmed man?

    That's so far beyond stupid the Hubble telescope can't see it.

    Your comment. clearly applies to your comment.
    It can take more than that even, or it take less. Not understanding that is absurd.

    He wasn't on PCP.

    You pretending that was reasonable is absurd.

    It can be reasonable depending on where and how many times the person is struck. Why is it that you have such a hard time understanding that?

    If it's anything less than the entire clip he's probably going against department policy. Around here if the decision has been made to use deadly force we require they make it deadly force.

    Because I understand that you only fire until the threat is mitigated.
