"Two officers fired several shots at the man, hitting him once in the shoulder". TWO OFFICERS...SEVERAL SHOTS...ONCE IN THE SHOULDER...all I can say is WOW!!! This had to be at close range if it all happen at the desk. No wonder the department is offering 100 free rounds to practice.

The above comment was found on the SCC site in response to the shooting in 003 yesterday. This guy is giving his expert opinion based on what he read in the newspaper. Whats close range? Two feet, three feet maybe as far as five feet? Maybe the officer who fired and struck the offender was 30 feet away. The desk area in 007 or 009 would be tight quarters but its wide open in 003. Quantify "several", more than 3?. How do guys guys pass judgement when all they have is a short quote in the newspaper. Why bother sending the dicks out? We have coppers who know all the answers. The above comment was probably offered by someone who was never involved in a police shooting.
