  1. Reminder: Someone with a knife can close the distance on you VERY QUICKLY, like faster than most people can draw their weapon and fire one round.

  2. Got it. They suck. There’s aged and current FBI Studies showing the round count between CCW’s and LE in defensive shoots. It’s like 10 to one in favor of the ammo conserving CCWs. If you don’t love guns and gun culture you shouldn’t be a cop.

  3. I’d like to know how many of those rounds hit the perp. Seems like only a couple of them hit. If so, that person should find other work.

  4. I wonder how many rounds actually hit him? And of the rounds that did, where did they hit him? As fast as the officer fired, I don’t think all of the shots were on target. Which is the problem with trying to shot someone in the arm or leg (I’d have trouble repeatedly hitting a non-moving leg at 7 yards, even with having a good sight picture and not being rushed to fire).

  5. Another cop who spent too much time in the donut shop and not enough on the Stairmaster.

    I heard 2 distinct voices telling him to drop the weapon, was there another cop hiding in the bushes?

    Why did she wait so long to fire her first round? That one-second delay gave him about 8 feet.

    I could be wrong but I bet her first 4 shots hit nothing but pavement.

    For an ex LE I’m liking you more and more.
    “I could be wrong but I bet her first 4 shots hit nothing but pavement.”

    Exactly where was her back stop? It’s dynamic shit that should be avoided at all costs.

    I hear two voices also and there are two different cameras, one up the d/w and the other on the cops vest. The cop backs up maybe 20ft while shooting and probably only hit him twice.

    I think the second camera is a “ring” camera on the premisies, but where is the other cop in all this?

    That female cop is really lucky. Her perplexing delay in firing gave the bad guy time to close, potentially putting that knife in her throat. It also put her on her heels to the point that she was off balance and not accurate in hitting her target.

    I think the other voice is the perp. He’s mocking her or something. Probably needed killing. One lucky lady that he didn’t get to her.

  10. Question: β€œWhy did they have to shoot the guy so many times?”

  11. If you hafta shoot, shoot ’til they drop. Oh, & bring enough caliber, Alice. Just as real engines begin with 400 cubic inches,real calibers begin @ .4

  12. He had to keep shooting because he didn’t have a Police dog to finish off the perp with a couple dozen practice bites, that’s why, dumb ass.

  13. I once read that cops are supposed to keep shooting until the target quits moving. Good advice; if it moves, it’s a threat. Remove the threat.
