A good answer

As reported earlier this week, some dirtbag who got pulled over in a
routine traffic stop in Florida ended up "executing" the deputy who
stopped him. The deputy was shot eight times, including once behind his
right ear at close range. Another deputy was wounded and a police dog
killed.

A statewide manhunt ensued. The low-life was found hiding in a wooded
area with his gun. SWAT team officers fired and hit the guy 68 times.

Now here's the kicker: Naturally, the media asked why they shot him 68
times.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, told the Orlando Sentinel, "That's all the
ammo we had."

I'm not necessarily applauding that. The fact he was shot and killed, hell yeah, I'm all for that... but 68 times? I'm sure quite a few of them were when he was on the ground, already dead. Sounds shady. I'll stop short of calling it an execution. Trigger happy for sure, but whatever. I won't miss him.

One officer carries probably 15-17 x 3. So 45 - 51 rounds apiece.

That happened about a year ago, and the sheriff did in fact say something to that effect.

Regardless, job well done. I'm much happier seeing my tax dollars spent on 68 rounds that found the body of a scumbag copkiller than to feed that POS for years on end.

Frankly I am of the mind that if you are justified in shooting, which is pretty much certain in this case, the number of rounds fired really doesn't matter. I mean if round 1 is justified, why would it matter what the number of rounds were fired after that first one was deemed justified.

How many rounds went through Bonnie and Clide when the LEOs open up on their car with BARs? If I remember right it was a fairly high number as well.

To me it sounds like a perfect time for live target practice ... time to unload one and all .... I will applaud them because I am afraid that if he made it to court some shady lawyer would get him off on some cotton picking technicality

WTG to all at the inprovized range.
