How can the chief of police say such an act is justified? Perhaps shooting someone whom they thought had a gun, IF he was pointing it at them or someone else is justified, but 80 times? There is never any justification for that, unless there were 80 officers present, all of whom had their weapons drawn on the suspect and who shot at the same time. I find it hard to believe that this guy was shot once or twice and was still pointing a gun at someone. I mean after 1, 2, or 3 shots the guy is going to be on the ground, no longer a "threat" to anyone. So EIGHTY SHOTS is justified?

Is it just me or are these police stories getting even more horrendous by the day? Why is this? Is it because they are trying to see just how much outrage they can pull off? Are they trying to start a uprising? Seriously what gives?
If this is the case just how much worse will it get before people wise up and stand up?
Cops shooting babies in cribs?
People wake up, stand up and rise up!
