    He may or may not be justified and I can agree with most of what you stated. I think it's just as much bull**** to criticize the 17 shot as it is to justify the shots. My view is it may be justified given the circumstances and it may not. He may not have even known he fired 17 shots. And yes it's still a bad assumption.
    I haven't criticised the shots. I don't know what happened. All I said was shooting 17 times should be looked in to and questioned.

    Why? What difference does it make how many rounds were fired? The perp is no more dead than if the cop fired one round..

    "Loud protests in the area"? What are they protesting here? The teen/man opened fire. What exactly were they supposed to do?

    Imagine how different things could be if those loud protests were protesting the criminal activities within their communities committed by these young black men instead of trying to portray such criminals as the victims.

    There's no political value in that.
