“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
Are you able to quote the article specifically or provide the study from the organization who gathered and analyzed the statistics? When you're ready to do that maybe this goes somewhere.
On what specific page of the autopsy report does it state Laquan McDonald was alive after being shot 5 times because "blood accumulated in his plural space and subdural space."
"I have a medical background." Ever conducted an autopsy? Or did you sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night?
So the argument is, they killed him TOO dead?
I don't see the issue here.
This is one of the reasons dept policy was changed from "shoot twice and evaluate" to "keep shooting until the threat has clearly ceased" in cases where police are threatened with deadly weapons.
And in training, they go to great lengths to make sure cops understand that a knife is a deadly weapon, because peeps tend to think "gun > knife". See a few dead cops autopsy photos with gaping knife wounds and you get over that preconception.
I gather than multiple cops were firing (no surprise, one shoots all shoot).... two or three cops could have fired 16 times in two or three seconds.
Studies of actual shooting incidents have shown that a subject can be shot through the heart and sometimes still be in the fight for up to six seconds.
