    I'm not a Cop but know that they are NOT trained to wound someone in the leg.

    Thats a ridiculous notion that could only come from watching too any cheesy detective shows.

    The are trained to aim for the center line of the torso of the body. They are trained to STOP THE THREAT.

    Don't reference the autopsy reports and then perpetuate the the BS that he was shot fleeing.

    In reference to this issue you people have been so wrong on so many levels and you STILL haven't learned to be objective.

    Im not a cop either, but you aren't trained to kill unarmed people... novel idea. He was not neutralizing a threat, the cop is the threat.

    If a 6'4", 240lb man is charging you, armed or unarmed (Wilson's version of the incident as well as that background recording) and you believe you could suffer harm, use of force is certainly authorized. This is just his side of the story but if it turns out to be corroborated, then use of force is certainly justified in this instance.

    And just about all law enforcement is trained to aim center mass in any situation where they feel the need for that level of force is needed based on the use of force policy that they're required to follow (drawing and firing their weapon). Most law enforcement training does not want an officer to pick and choose what to shoot out when seconds count. Center mass has been standard for a while now.

    You shoot any immediate threat until it ceases to be a threat.

    Physical size and strength absolutely fall into this category - hands can be weapons.

    Bull !

    So you should be able to fist fight a cop ? And the cop needs to hold his own or get the crap beat out of him, maybe knocked unconscious so his Gun can be removed and used against him, or someone else ??

    Are you friken serious ?
