    And they were unable to mitigate any threats for all of those years.

    Quite fascinating.

    I know police officers that have managed with one or two shots. They must be super cops!
    That or they don't exist. Look, you fire your weapon at someone in these situations there are only two outcomes you can have in mind - they die or you do.

    So you know exactly what that cop was thinking at the time.

    Impressive.

    Rioting brings out the worst in cops also.

    So rather than assume parental naivety, you'd rather beat up the bereaved. OK.

    You don't fire your weapon thinking you're going to miss. I don't think you're getting the point. You do not fire unless you are in the place where you use deadly force. Once you pull that trigger it's to make the other fellow dead.
