I will call several hits in the torso against an opponent inside a vehicle that eliminates the threat and sends him to the hospital a very good score in combat shooting.

There are many many SD attempts that don't score any hits, and plenty of examples of vehicles being shot multiple and tens of multiples of time yet getting few nor no hits on the target within.

I don't know, but the way the goofy laws work concerning the USPS, the MBTNAA guy might be better sentenced with stealing MAIL rather than Aggravated Assault.

AA = 5 years and up to 10K in fines
Mail Theft = 5 years and up to 250K in fines.

Double dipping..
AA - state charges
Mail theft - federal charges, possibly multiple counts if thief was in possession of multiple peoples’ mail when caught.

I got lost with all the MMB's. Glad the thief got his just desserts.
