33 cops + 600 rounds is one to two magazines per cop fired down range, at close range. Totally unacceptable.
But the woman was shot 10 times. We don't know if it was one cop or 10 who accidentally shot her. It certainly wasn't all 33.

You might be surprised. If you have a CPL and are justifiably shooting at someone they can't charge you for hitting another person (as I recall).
But the California felony-murder rule changes all that. It allows a defendant to face murder charges...and possibly a murder conviction...even if the prosecutor cannot show that s/he acted with malice, as long as s/he killed someone in connection with the intentional commission of a felony.
Some examples of incidents that could lead to California murder charges under the felony-murder rule include:
Two defendants, one of them armed with a gun, commit a robbery of a convenience store. The defendant holding the gun accidentally fires it, and the bullet bounces off the ceiling and hits a store clerk, killing her. Both defendants (even the one not holding the gun) may be charged with murder under the felony-murder rule

I think this goes back to negotiating with terrorists/hostage takers. We don't do that. So collateral damage,
while not desired, is not avoided either. Basically it is in the contingency plan. The cops knew there was a hostage, yet, that doesn't matter when suspects are shooting a gun at you.
