When I went through the Academy, we were taught to shoot COM! The only reason to shoot low would be to avoid hitting anyone behind the BG. COM would be the first option though to avoid return fire!

WOW! "he shoulda shot him below the waste, cause thats what cops do. What makes him better?" I find it amazing that theyre even questioning wether or not he shouldve shot the 'suspect'. Cant fix stupid right?

Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.
If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
That first guy, the news station should have never included his statement. I consider it irresponsible to broadcast such idiocy without a disclaimer.
In shootings like this, when the LEOs should be able to plainly see there was a good shoot, I don't think it should go to the DA. Wounded guy found with gun, security footage. It's a no brainer.
Sometimes DAs lose sight of their good sense and try cases that should not be in court.
