Hmm... 84 rounds fired at one suspect. That's as many rounds as the ENTIRE German police force fired last year.
Best quote of the year so far... and I don't know if I should laugh or cry.
The NYPD does not have a dedicated patrol rifle, but there are units within 15 minutes response time with rifles, shotguns, tear gas, and a bunch of other neat stuff.
Perfect. Just like for the average citizen, when seconds count the police are just minutes away... even for other police.
The Lubbock fiasco only goes to show that firearms are indeed dangerous if they are held by the wrong hands.
