    Sorry, I just have to say it ... two out of three ain't bad!

    But I also wonder, were all 3 a threat? Almost like dead men tell no tales. At some point in time, you have to quit shooting and do some assessment of the situation. Anyone with any police experience here? If you take out the shooter, but the gun is still available to those others in the car, how do you handle it?

    The article only says multiple shots were fired from the vehicle. Sometimes you wonder, if all the people in the car are shooters? Ignore the girl as a lesser threat, and you're dead?

    I figure in a life and death situation, you kill all and let God sort the rest

    two out of three is not a optimal outcome but hell at least they didn't get to drive away.

    Dinosaur I'm not picking on you when I ask this. Ten or 15 years ago would we have asked ourselves "were all 3 a threat"? I don't think that I would have. I would have assumed that the officer did what he needed to do.

    I just wonder if all of the anti police crap that is shoved down our throats daily has made us question events that we wouldn't have questioned before? Do we no longer automatically assume that the police did what's right?

    Maybe, maybe not, but in that sort of situation he just had to assume they were.

    When a group of three people approaches you and one pulls out a gun and shoots you, it's a reasonable assumption to make that the two others are intending harm to you too.

    Sometimes in life or death situations, exact fairness gets thrown out the window.


    With his hand injured and his ability to defend himself impaired, in that situation, shooting at the others could have meant the difference between him surviving or dying.
