I'm kind of surprised that was a legal shot... I know it's a good one, but.....

The suspect was hit in the arm and wrist area and was transported to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

May or may not have been a "good shoot."

But it was a pretty lousy "shot."

Could have tried to shoot off center purposely.

He shouldn't have pursued, and he especially shouldn't have shot a fleeing felon. This is a bad shoot, but I doubt he will get prosecuted.

Wouldn't that make the bank robber a fleeing felon?

Obviously the robber had to have been white. I didn't think anyone was supposed to shoot a fleeing criminal, unless maybe he had your kid or something.

We can only use deadly force if there is threat or fear of death or serious bodily harm. A bad guy running away from you is not a threat unless he is shooting at you as he runs away.

I thought so.

Well obviously this wasn't a white on black shot or it would be national headlines by now.

Huh. Very interesting. I guess I stand corrected.....although I wouldn't this this common knowledge in the court of public opinion.
