Yeah I was gonna post the same comment , 18 shots and the BG is not dead . Now we have to pay for a trial and jail-time for the BG that should be dead .
NO .... they shot until they finally hit him.Police fired 18 shots, striking Joudeh at least twice. "They shot until the threat was stopped," said O'Neill.
Most NYPD officers only go to range when they need to qualify( once yearly I think). So in most instances. You or I have better marksmanship then the Average Uniformed NYPD officer (look up Empire State Building shooting. At that one they injured 12 bystanders )
when NY had the S&W #10 as an issue weapon, the officers will complain that they could hit anything with it, the old chief at the time, will tell them to hit the range and practice, I see now he was right.
