I believe there has to be more to the story. Not just one cop either.
Two or three guys emptying there guns takes a couple of seconds.

A 9mm could be loaded with 16 rounds total, a .40 with 15....

You shoot until empty and/or the threat is over.

If the guy is dead, who cares if it is 1 or 50 bullets?

A college friend who is an ER doc told me about a guy who lunged at police with a knife in his hand. The shot and hit him 45 times. 3 cops at close range.

When the family of the dead guy arrived they had not been told what happened. They asked my friend, "Is he OK, Doc?"

My friend had just walked out of the room where the guys bullet riddled body (over 60 entrance/exit wounds) was laying on a table.

He was caught completely off guard and replied, "He's DEAD." In a tone that sugeested that he couldn't believe that they would ask such a stupid question. Like "Are you kidding me? He is fucking dead."

He immediately realized what he had said and apologized.

The cops then pulled my friend aside and basically begged that he not let the family see the body. He told the cops, "I can't do that." They threatened to arrest him for "tampering with a crime scene"...he told them to fuck off.

They then went back to good-cop mode and tried to act like docs and cops were one big happy family. What they didn't know was that my friend had been pulled over by the CHP two days before for speeding and had been given the full felony stop treatment for going 90mph on the freeway in his Porsche. Welcome to LA.

He wasn't in the mood to help out these knuckleheads.

It turned out that 10 or more of the entrance wounds were in the guys side and back. They kept shooting until he was on the ground and it was chalked up as a justifiable shooting.

^^^^ Could have just shot his kneecaps to extinguish the threat.

It's still early in the investigation, but here are some quotes from a NY newspaper whose reporter was on the scene:

One detective on the scene shook his head as he told The Post that the shooting was "a major screw-up."

Another cop later said, "It could be like the guy with the wallet" - referring to unarmed Bronx man Amadou Diallo, who in 1999 was hit by 19 of 41 bullets fired by cops as he grabbed for his wallet.


It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

I never read in the story the guy was black? did I miss this?

Do you think Sharpton would give a damn if it was a white boy?

That sounds nice, something my wife would ask. But if you know anything about what they teach officers is to stop the threat and hit center mass(chest area). As to try to hit such a small target as the knees, hands etc are just about impossible under stress and movement.

It will be interesting to hear the whole story.

Another glaring omission in the article: How many of the cops were black? None? One, two or three? Maybe more? I can't imagine an undercover operation in a night club with all white officers.
