So he gave the guy 38 warning shots?  He had plenty of time to exit the truck and lie down on the ground.

More and more, we're learning that the account given by the police officer is not what actually occurred

Slaves2Darkness: Yes, yes it seems like a lot of bullets missed, except when you factor in he was using a pistol, was jumped up on adrenaline, and the guy had partial cover.

Anybody who has never fired a gun, much less a pistol, in a life or death situation where your adrenaline is making your heart want to come out of your chest and your hands are shaky would say that 41 round with 38 missing is bad marksmanship.

Any body who has is surprised seven of those rounds from a pistol found their mark. There is a reason the Army spends a lot of time teaching people how to shoot and how to act calmly under very scary conditions. There is also a reason they use automatic weapons, because pretty much humans suck at shooting when scared or excited and more lead toward the bad guys is better than less.

If you carry a gun, I hope your marksmanship is better than your math.

You'll end up with more cops in prison than black people.

stuffy: This is why cops should not be aloud to have guns.

Can they be whispered to have guns?

Some of you cop apologists are just making yourself look stupid.  If I wasn't hungover it'd be easier to text out my well-reasoned response on my way to work. Hold on...getting pulled over.

You have to admit, this was a highly emotionally charged situation.  After all, there was some maniac with a gun shooting all over the place.

Mentalpatient87: alice_600: and thank you for your common sense

You might wanna go... learn. Just plain learn. You seem to be in need of it.

I have learned. I learned a lot possibly more than you have ever learned and one of them is that not everyone is after your god damn pot stash. The only reason you hate the cops is because they are doing something your parents never did. Make you behave in public.

Pharque-it: Isn't that more shots than the whole German police force fired in a year?

We let out our government sector violence in a small, steady stream.

Germany saves it all up, and then, a couple times a century...watch out.

skozlaw: FarkedOver: A police apologist!

Oh, look. You got called on your BS so you just make shiat up. What a shocker.

Post a legitimate source or STFU with your INFOWARS-wannabe horsehiat. It's not exactly hard. They even have the goddamn CATO work on the subject in your garbage article, you only had to click one more link and copy that URL instead to not be a raging retard.

knobmaker: This guy, therefore something seriously wrong with the way cops are hired, trained, and retained.

Three of the first six comments before I posted were generic biatching about all cops, so, yea.

These threads are NEVER about the actual abuses that are occurring, they're just biatch fests from losers who had run-ins with cops because they were doing stupid shiat and they want to whine about the chips on their shoulders.

Farkers seem to have a very hard time distinguishing between cops in riot gear with heavy armaments that kick in a door and shoot the dog in the face because some guy was smoking dope in his living room and the time they got stopped on the sidewalk because they were stumbling around drunk.

Nobody cars that Office Jerkass was mean to you because you were being a dickbag, that's not really a problem, especially not in the face of this type of shiat.

You are awesome and thank you for your common sense. If I could I would make you cookies.

Gecko Gingrich: If it was a 10 round magazine, we're talking four times.

Three times with a ten round clip and starting with one round chambered, which suggests he only stopped reloading when he ran out of clips.

FTA: He unloaded 41 rounds, pausing at least once to reload despite taking no return fire from Allen who was not in possession of a firearm. Three of those shots hit Allen, killing him. But 38 of Tuter's shots missed their target.

That's because cops are crappy shooters and are not even within the same league as your average CCW holder.
