    So nothing I have seen up to this points suggests "overkill". Besides, how many shots are appropriate in your view?
    The report contradicts the officer statements. The police force here has a long history of corruption, Brutality , overkill and sweeping things under the rug. This is another black eyes against CPD that fits an all-too-familiar MO.

    It doesn't take 16 shots to put somebody down, the kid wasn't wearing body armor. Doesn't sound fishy to you? they shot him twice in the back and once in the head.

    Homicide victims are largely the same race statistically. White people kill white people and so forth.

    What's that got to do with this specific case? He was shot 16 times.

    Point being-simply citing the 75% stat is meaningless unless you can show that they were somehow unjustified.
    really?

    According to the police he had just slashed their tire.

    And its not the number of times, but the placement that determines how deadly a gun shot is.

    Heres the autopsy report... Laquan McDonald Autopsy

    I have a medical backround, his major injuries were a tracheal disruption, penetrating lung wound with small hemothorax, and a glancing blow to the skull that caused a subdural hematoma.

    None of these are immediately fatal, and the rest were fairly minor extremity injuries, or to his sacrum.

    This means he could have been a threat. Its going to be exceedingly difficult to convict the cops of any criminal activity, barring some unknown evidence as a reasonable doubt exists.

    I think this is an attempt to trump up an event from 5 months ago, it fits a narrative that can distract from the more important events going on.

    I was dealing with a tangential issue that involved the race of criminals and those shot by cops.

    As I noted-rounds alone don't tell us a whole lot.

    BTW you are investigating a pair of homicides. The victim was stabbed 30 times

    another was stabbed once.

    can you tell which one was a professional hit or which one was some crazed whack job?

    Maybe you should start with some light reading on wikipedia and top it off with the autopsy report.
