    41 shots again?



    Maybe there should be a 40 capacity mag limit.

    He was rightfully terminated after only hitting his target 3 out of 41 attempts. The minimum standard should have been at least 33 hits out of 41. We can't have that sort of incompetence.

    How can you fear for your life if you are chasing someone? All he had to do is hit the brakes, and the percieved threat would be gone.

    If you stop somebody by ramming them, get out of your car and they continue to floor the gas towards you, you may be at risk of being struck by the suspect. Without any video of the incident, no idea how much peril the officer was in. They say he violated the rules for pursuit. Which means he didn't ask for permission to pursue OR ramming a suspect vehicle was not allowed without authorization.

    As far as the asshole he shot. Fuck him. Take your pinch like a man. He put other peoples lives in danger because you fucked up.

    Fair enough Mr. MH, I didn't think of that. The article is somewhat vague, so my civilian brain wasn't connecting the dots. I agree though, the suspect was a piece of shit. Unless you ask his mom, "he was a good boy and didn't deserve this."
