Oh for the love of... even when I'm more or less in agreement with you on an issue you just have to find some reason to insult me and argue with me I see.The Smoking Man said:What part of Alabama are you from where you unload a full clip into the base of a skull of a man being pinned to the ground by two other policemen? This gun was a Glock 18: http://www.glock.com/g18.htm [Broken]
You do realize that a Glock 18 has a magazine that has 31 bullets?
Even the rednecks around your place might choose to stop before the face and dental records completely disappeared.
Please recognize something ... these were not typecal police men. They were not even the usual suspects who get handed a weapon for standard use.
These were a special tactical unit for terrorist responses.
A glock 18 IS NOT STANDARD ISSUE.
I don't know how these officers were trained. I was just mentioning a policy here that may have some parallel there. Perhaps they are trained to loose a certain number of bullets when shooting to kill and in the tension of the moment the officer reacted on instinct and the training that has been ingrained in him with out really thinking. Perhaps even he simply did it because he was too caught up with adrenaline and such that he wasn't terribly aware of the number of rounds he had shot.
I Don't Know. And I agree that this was a bad reaction in the situation so lay off with the insults, if you don't mind.
