vudukungfu: thurstonxhowell: They were shot?Oh sorry.They were burned alive.
dittybopper: Vicki Weaver unavailable for comment had it coming.
Egoy3k: whistleridge: Given how many FBI agents there are, getting into God knows how many tight situations on a daily or weekly basis (no, not all, or even most, of them...but I bet there's at LEAST one armed confrontation per week, and probably more like 5), that's actually an amazingly low number of shootings.I wouldn't be surprised at all if an overwhelming percentage of them are justified. 99%, even.But 100%? That's...improbable.I agree the low number of shootings points to a high level of professionalism and restraint.I also agree that the 100% justified stat is somewhat unlikely but maybe they really are that good at vetting field agents. Another explanation for both stats is that they are really really poor shots.
nmrsnr: Several thousand foul balls were caught by bystanders last year, and amazingly enough, all of the bystanders were attending baseball games at the time.I'm not saying the FBI is right or wrong, I'm just saying that high correlation of shootings to justifiable shootings is not, in and of itself, evidence that the FBI investigators are doing anything wrong.
