    I believe you're right, thanks.

    I often wonder when I read stuff like this if it is completely factual or not. Who said that the round went off after the CCL individual fired? I dunno, the media is very anti gun and it makes me look at the shadows I guess.

    I've been doing some thinkin' about that myself. How do they know which was the cause and which was the effect?

    How could anyone know the BG shot because the GG missed? I can see how that's to the BG's advantage to claim that, it makes a murder look like an unintentional act.

    Good points. It's not cold. It's the way things are. Should I ever wish to be protector of all those around me, I'll pursue the honor of being an badged LEO.
