FYI: punching a reporter in the jaw can and may/will result in a visit from P.D.
If you are fortunate enough to be visited by an officer over 40, with a satisfactory amount of common sense, you will not be arrested and the D.A. will decline charges and recommend that said reporter consider it a "routine hazard of the job".
Unfortunately their isn't much you can do when said reporter gets every detail of the case wrong except for the spelling of your name.
If it bleeds it leads, the more socioeconomically deprived the better. A single white male, father of the victim, with a good middle class job - page 6 and a 17 second blip on the news at 10.

Exactly.

... and if we find out that the first of the five rounds was actually the shot that effectively ended this person's life (just moments later due to exsanguination) the whole why did he have to shoot five times is really a moot point. Like most others here, I hope to never have to fire shots in a time of need, but my intent will be to continue to use deadly force until the threat stops or my ability to use deadly force comes to an end.

Why did she raise a son who had committed at least 5 robberies?
Why did her 19 year old son, have a gun with at least 5 rounds?
Why did she have to ask this question, and not her husband, the boy's father?
Why wasn't her son enrolled in college, instead of robbing, families, at a fast food restaurant?
What church did she attend with her son?
How much of her income was tax payer subsidized?

There are a lot of unanswered questions in this situation.

Just thinking out loud but, maybe we should pass a law that we get to shoot the MSM that assault grieving family members.


So, should we honor the 2nd Amendment, but not the 1st?


Although I was speaking tongue in cheek. If I were approached by a reporter under such conditions, I would want at least the right to pummel that lowlife into a heap. I think a right to protect ourselves from assault outweighs the 1st ammendment right to get the story. JMHO.


The first amendment does not protect the reporter from you pummeling them. It would only be a first amendment violation if you were acting as an agent of the government while doing so.

I know it'll be at least two, possibly 3 depending on how likely the perp is to be incapacitated at that point. That is all assuming I'm in control of my faculties as adrenaline is pumping through my arteries. I can definitely see myself going up to 5 or more if the perp is high on PCP, wearing armor, etc. There's really only one way to find out, and I certainly hope I never will.


Remember these words "My training is such that when I fire a shot, when the sight picture returns and the threat is still there, I fire another shot. This continues until the site picture returns and there is no longer a threat in the sight picture."

Relatives of criminals (most particularly low life types, be they white or ...?) often complain their criminal loved one was mistreated.

Did he/she have a list (sometimes long and varied) of past criminal misdeeds?

Ah, yeah, but, but, but, but...

Did you the aggrieved relative sincerely believe this person was going to end up being a non-criminal, you know, work for a living, stay out of trouble, be honest and upright?

No, you didn't.

You knew they'd end up tragically.

Quit bellyaching.

I would not be surprised if the answer to "why did he shoot him five times?" is "J-frame."
