    Well, considering only one or two of the shots, out of six, hit pay dirt, he may be right. Thank God for magazines that hold a lotta bullets, hey?

    Not only that, every dept does not train with both eyes open. Its agency specific. But again. It is not relevant here

    No, I am not suggesting that. I am suggesting he was trained to shoot with two eyes open and to shoot one eye "closed" would have lead to him making errors and false assumptions on distance. For example, Wilson could have seen the victim with two eyes, then drawn his weapon, closed his eye, and thought the victim was closer then the victim actually was, thus assuming he was running at him. Human eyes work better in pairs and you miss a vital piece of information when shooting with one eye and that's called DEPTH PERCEPTION.

    Self defense shooting in universal by police academies. That's the point shot method and is taught to be used in a self-defense situation which if you believe this report, that's what he would have naturally done (well muscle memory). This probably explains why his shots were off because it's only suppose to be used between 1-21 ft, to use a pistol with this technique at further distance leads to higher inaccuracy.

    I should also state.. this story is absolutely bull****. CNN is reporting from sources from Ferguson police department, including police chief, Darren Wilson didn't suffer a orbital fracture.

    Wait you just seemed to suggest that it was anecdotal on your part. Some fast googling going on eh?

    So you are conceding that brown was in 1-21'?

    So you believe that report but not the several other news sources.

    And cnn's commentator also only said his eye wasnt fractured, but still injured. And that particular commentator is not known for his objectivity

    Of course! Doesn't everyone who is shot several times turn around and rush the one shooting them.

    I agree one-hundred percent! As soon as law enforcement stops shooting them down in the streets and starts treating them better, things will be moving in that direction.
