Re: Police in Cincinnati??... Again?

police enter situations and have to make quick assessments of that said situation. How do they know he doesn't have a gun. Those things are usually determined later. The guys was resisting arrest and took a swing at the officer...that could lead one to believe that he had something to hide. The coroner's report say that Mr. Jones had PCP in his system. If that can be confirmed, then the drug may have lead to Mr. Jones' behavior..which you must at least admit is a 'little' over the...

And in line with the new legal practices of the day in America he would have sued the cops for a couple of million dollars for shooting him. I don't know how other people were taught to shoot but I was taught to shoot for the center of mass of the body which is the chest/heart area. Shooting people in arms and legs only happens in the movies.

Re: Blacks and Guns

Noah The African ·
Guns are most effective when one can predict or know in advance of an attempted assault. If someone tells you he is going to break in your house at 9:00 Am Central time, then you can get your gun and prepare for him. However, that is not the way it works. Criminals utilize the element of SURPRISE to gain advantage. Having a GUN concealed or otherwise does not offset that advantage. If I was a criminal looking to rob someone and using a gun in the commission of this felony, I will use stealth...

Let me just run with this for a moment. Here's a pic from the site you posted Vox. It appears to be of the inside ring of the Pentagon - ostensibly where the nose of the 757 busted through.

Thats based on the assumption that after looking down the barrel of my .357 he tells himself that he can outrun the bullet, and the self-defense of others, well since there is a whole store to verify that this guy start beating this other person seemly without reason I think that we can assume that drawing a weapon in self defense of the poor victim could be justified.
