    How many times, based on your armchair assessment are appropriate? Should they have stopped and offered him hot chocolate after say the 5th shot?

    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?
    No idea what your point is.

    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.
    Laquan McDonald shooting: A recently obtained autopsy report on the dead teen complicates the Chicago Police Department’s story. Officers statement and police report don't line up with the autopsy

    you cannot tell anything merely by the number of rounds alone

    He was dead by the 5th shot. Don't read the autopsy report though.

    I dont even know who Jason L. Riley is, and AA is the term used in the medical field as shorthand for African American. As for who gathered the stats, you can ask the Wall Street Journal.

    What else you got?

    It sounds like the police need more training to place their shots better.

    I understand your implication, but you can't stop short of proving a criminal act.

    Show me where that happened.

    Apparently he's not as color blind as the left likes to suggest. Perhaps he was going by the kids name? Seems kind of stereotypical to me.
