hasty ambush: fusillade762: Texas cop shoots, kills 93-year-old woman outside her homeHow much more are we prepared to accept?According to Fark progressivesTM cops are the only ones who should be allowed to have guns. The segment of the population, next to thug gangstas, with perhaps the worse marksmanship skills are cops..Fark ProgressivesTM:Somebody breaking into your home-call a copSomebody raping your wife -call a copHoodie wearing thug bashing your head into a sidewalk-call a cop.Fark ProgressivesTM- "cops suck"
Tyrone Slothrop: If only there had been a good guy with a gun there.
Thunderpipes: Guess we know where all the ammo went.Glad to know if a guy crashes into my house, my kids were be dodging bullets.377 bullets. What the holy oh crap.
doglover: And people want to make these jokers the ONLY ones with access to firearms.
Dubya's_Coke_Dealer: Why do you people hate on cops just because they shoot innocent people and dogs?
way south: Lots of shady business, and an extreme misuse of force, but to be fair: the fact that the suspect was unarmed at the time of the shooting isn't relevant when they had every reason to believe otherwise.He had just committed an armed robbery and also shot someone. You'd have to be psychic to have known he ditched the gun somewhere.Again, not defending the cops mad minute. But let's not pretend the guy in the car was just a normal customer.
Farking lunatics.In other news,
According to Germany's Der Spiegel, German police shot only 85 bullets in all of 2011, a stark reminder that not every country is as gun-crazy as the U.S. of A. As Boing Boing translates, most of those shots weren't even aimed anyone: "49 warning shots, 36 shots on suspects. 15 persons were injured, 6 were killed."
rolladuck: I want to point out that this article is one of the most responsibly written pieces of journalism I've seen in years.It manages to rationally and calmly explain the facts at hand without directly blaming any particular person for the events, but still letting it be clear that something seriously farked up happened and needs to be corrected.
Laobaojun: Ya' know, p!ssing that many bullets around the landscape, it might save them ammunition to spend more time on the pistol range.
Alphax: doglover: And people want to make these jokers the ONLY ones with access to firearms.Do you think more guns at that site would have helped anything?
