I'm sure. I'm not a trained cop, but it does seem like they empty their revolvers rather than fire once. I guess that's what they are trained to do because firing once or twice may not end well for the officer and they may not have time to figure out if the suspect is hit no longer a threat.

and the name of the officer SHOULD NOT be released.His life would be in danger.
There are 2 different situations here. The shooting...and the rioting....
No excuse for the rioting. They are stinkin thieves and arsonists...lowlifes...and they are making the rest of society even MORE disgusted with Black disfunction in this country.
Nothing in my post is biased.. let's revisit this after the drones show up and start killing people you care about...

The media only cares about Benjamin Franklin. Peace times is not a friend of the media.

It's tragic quite frankly. But it should be understood that these black men are fed a steady diet of doom and gloom from the time they are born by the Sharptons and other race hustlers. Those that can rise above the naysayers typically succeed quite nicely.
