    Did you know that "Irish" is a race. So is "Scandinavian". So is "Sikh". So is "German".

    I'm half Irish and half German. How come I don't get to choose them when I'm identifying my race on the Census?

    Depends on how forceful the blow is. But any blow to the face such as being claimed will make it virtually impossible for the cop to see out of that eye CLEARLY .

    Some major surgeries are performed these days on a day-stay/out-patient basis, and you could have your gall bladder removed in the morning and be home by early afternoon.
    Yes, necessarily. Whenever you are given a bed you are considered "hospitalized" for billing purposes and legal purposes. Hospitalized is defined as to be place in a hospital for medical care or observation. That's everything from ER to Day only surgery.

    Yes, couple of differences you forgetting.

    1) MMA fighters were gloves with padding.
    2) MMA fighters are trained to take blows such as that.
    3) MMA fighters eyes do swell up during the fight.

    There is always symptoms right away.. anybody having been in a fist fight and being hit in the face.. will tell you this. Your eyes water if it's a direct hit, you get a bit of your "bell rung" and it takes you a bit to unring that bell. Another point is, the claim is the cop was beaten unconscious.. Sorry, you don't get close to beat unconscious and shoot the ****, period. You aren't all there if you take that kind of beating.

    You aim with one eye.

    This is a fallacy, police and military are "taught" to shoot with both eyes open. US Army (since you sport the CIB) teaches Reflexive fire which is shooting with two eyes open and not "aiming" via iron sights. You know, why Reflex sights such as the ITL MARS, EOTech, Trijicon and Aimpoint variants are used.

    But even if you disagree with that... for shooting a pistol in a "self-defensive" situation cops are trained to shoot with both eyes open for the purpose of situational awareness. I.E. they don't "sight" but rather point the weapon on target. With long distances when ready to fire quick close of eye mere tenths of a second before firing and reopening of the eye to keep scanning. Reason for this is your closed eye takes time to adjust for the equal or greater time you had it closed. So if you are sighting for 2 mins, it'll take your non-dominate eye 2 mins or longer to adjust.

    Darren Wilson had an eye bone fracture after scuffle with Michael Brown, family friend says - The Washington Post

    The officer who fatally shot an unarmed Ferguson youth suffered a fracture to his eye bone in a scuffle with Michael Brown, according to a family friend.

    The hospital X-rays of the injury have been submitted to the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney, and will be shared with a grand jury now weighing evidence to determine if Officer Darren Wilson should be charged in the shooting.
    The third such claim. Jim Hoft and then Foxnews independently confirmed it with police sources and now its claimed by a "family friend". Adding in the public statements of a serious facial injury, swelling and a ride to the hospital by the assistant policechief, and it's becoming more likey then not to be true.

    So what is your point? If he is trained to shoot with both eyes open, certainly he can do it with one eye open.

    This one i know for certain

    I know that when aiming, two eyes are optimal. But when you only have one eye working, you do what you gotta do.

    Myself, I can shoot the balls off a gnat aiming with one eye or two. But that's just me.
