For reasons of public safety.
These pricks are just plain too crappy marksmen to be permitted to run round in public. “Up to a dozen rounds” at one dog and you can’t hit it at virtaul point blank range?
Then having heard the shots from TV1’s footage my professional assesment would be more than one shooter and the better part of a couple of mags going down range. Of course it wasn’t ON a range, it was in a public street. The police claim that there was “no danger to the public” is just utter utter bullshit. Without having templated and surveyed the area you have no glue where those rounds are going and given your obvious inability to hit what you’re aiming at the chance of smacking off something you didn’t know was there increase with every jerk of the trigger. And there was clearly a lot of trigger jerking going on.
The technical name for the sort shooting I heard was a “yippie”.
And to that the number of stories I have from friends who were or are cops about UD’s in the changing rooms and various other “incidents” I say we should no more be giving cops firearms than we should over sugared hyperactive ten year olds.
From observation almost the same thing.
You guys suck.
In my world we hit what we aim at, its called being a professional. But then in the army we didn’t collect taxes for Cullen so we had time to train.
