Split-second decision to shoot was right one

He did the right thing.

And should be patted on the back for potentially saving lives including his own.

“In policing there are split second decisions and he had to make a call and he made the right one,” Toronto Police Association President Mike McCormack said of the officer involved in the high noon shooting of a Toyota Corolla in the Distillery District Wednesday.

The officer shot at least 14 bullets from his 9 mm Glock in a very tight and concise grouping into the hood of a car.

I have been meaning to get to this sooner but work has consumed me all week. I listened to news reports about this incident yesterday, and seriously each one seemed to amp the hysteria over the last.

All I could think of was – He shot a car. Big Deal.

    Doesn’t look like a very bright decision when other cops were standing around, one was standing right in the line of fire. Bullets could have ricocheted on hitting any metal/hard surface.

    Cop should have shot out the tires first.
    Then started on the perp’s legs.
    A whole Glock full? Come on.

    Anyway, if the poor Toyota had been muslim green or black instead of silver grey ……

    How come the police get 14 shots and I’m only allowed 10?
