Phil No one fires a weapon with the intent of wounding ,that's only in films I'm afraid ask yourself this , in that split moment which arm would you have chosen? or which leg and why ( there's very few recorded incidents of someone holding a hand gun with their feet ) One round can kill a person so one or 7 into the torso ?, he could have shot him in the back of the head , now that would have been seen as an execution . Yes it does sound disproportionate but the effect could be the same , a dead or severely wounded person.He's still alive so that being said he could still have shot the officer even with 7 rounds in him ( it was 4 which hit him) At the end of all this perhaps Jacobs and many others should consider they actions before putting them selves at the risk of events like this happening but no its never their fault . If the copper is proven to have acted unlawfully then he should in a civilised society being punished , the trouble is the anarchy we're seeing currently in the US ( and to some extent in the early summer in this country) then all laws go out of the window which imo is exactly what BLM and other maxist groups want As Mary T. Lathrap once wrote: " Just walk a mile in his moccasins Before you abuse, criticize and accuse. If just for one hour, you could find a way To see through his eyes, instead of your own muse"
