In this morning’s post, I forgot the best quote, from a reader calling himself “Jarhead” in Maryland:
the whole thing about how could the cop shoot him six times? Could be
excess, or as anyone whose fired weapons will tell you – – the cop did
not have an old-style police pistol that shoots one round, one trigger
squeeze. He had a semi-automatic pistol, and in an adrenaline rushed
fight-or-flight encounter, the cop could have held the trigger and more
rounds came out as a matter of course. It’s not binary, he brutally
shot him repeatedly OR he squeezed and discharges continued
automatically, but the number of rounds fired is not insane.
This comes from a person calling himself “Jarhead” and claiming familiarity with weapons, yet doesn’t know the difference between semi-auto and full auto.
