Why isn't it mandatory for police to attempt to shoot knees or hands or something that's not fatal?!

You demand action meanwhile I'll hate. I'd also like to personally call out the mod that deleted my post to tell me which rule I broke.

Cause hands and knees are very low percentage shots, would take a crack shooter to be able to hit those and despite what every cop will tell you, they are not all amazing shooters. And if they miss the hands or knees then they risk hitting a innocent bystander.
So torso shots should be where they shoot, cause that will incapacitate and not kill 100% of the time. I read 2 of the links, and I didn't see the number of shots that were fired, but I am willing to bet it was over 5 to the chest which will be fatal damn near 100% of the time especially when its hollow points entering in ya tearing you up.
I mean even the marines teach a 3 shot failure drill for kills... Not sure why cops who should be shooting to stop should be unloading into people. Unless of course they are just shooting to kill.
