One suspect, nine innocent bystanders - all shot by police. The officers were only 8 feet away. If I shot that poorly I couldn't go to the range for fear of hitting the range officer and other patrons.
If I was chief of police in NYC, I would be worried about my job. That's a disgrace & heads should roll. 2 officers were responseable for 16 shots. They should not be allowed on the streets, much less with a gun.
While I can understand some forms of gun control (not giving convicted felons guns, for example, is a no-brainer, and maybe giving people a psyche evaluation), making guns really difficult to own like in the UK means that while I, who's never even been cautioned by the police, can't have a gun, that douchebag down the street who sells drugs probably has a few.
Couple of phone calls and a disregard for the law and I'm almost sure I'd be able to get one before the day is up, yet I can't walk around with a knuckle duster, tazer, knife, or gun - they can and do. Who's being protected but the criminals? Certainly I'm not. The ones who have guns now are the ones from whom we have to fear having them.
This one looks like an NWO hoax that blew up in their faces. If you are a law officer you MIGHT want to be able to hit the broad side of a barn before hitting the streets with a loaded glock. Just saying. ::rambo::
