I always wondered why not shoot him in the leg or something...he goes down immediately. That would be my first instinct in this situation.

"Shoot to kill" is standard training protocol now. What ever happened to warning shots? Maybe just popping one off into the ground would make the gravity of the situation clear, although it shouldn't even escalate that far.


Shoot to kill has always been standard training protocol and it makes perfect sense. The difference is that cops are far more likely to use their guns these days. I remember many discussions with the older generation of cops and they would talk about the situations where they had to pull their guns as marks of shame... it meant all other measures had failed. Others would take pride in only having to pull a gun two or three times in a 30 year career.

Police officers of today are not what they used to be.

And people thinking they are in the right in cases like this are the reason.

Did they ever exist? Where does the bullet end up?


Maybe just popping one off into the ground


And the ricochet hits someone and you have the same people bashing the cops yet again...

Highly unlikely if you pop one in to the mother earth...while...shooting at a concrete floor might do the trick.
