Two NYPD beat cops caused a bit of a stir recently when they wounded nine innocent bystanders on a busy Manhattan Street. Imagine what would have happened if it had been a civilian, gun control advocates argued. Nine people wouldn’t have been shot, people familiar with civilian defensive gun use (DGU) replied. Additional evidence of the existence and impact of trigger-happy cops: the baseball-sized hole in Pedro Fez’ window in Mesquite Texas. Luckily, the unnamed Garland PD officer who drilled Fez’ crib and shot and [eventually] killed Michael Vincent Allen didn’t take out a law-abiding taxpayer. But it wasn’t for lack of not not trying. We’re talking 41 shots. One officer, and one officer only. “Garland police will continue its internal investigation to determine if the officer involved ‘was in compliance with applicable departmental general orders,'” crimeblog.dallasnews.com. My money’s on a big thumbs up. Which gets a big thumbs down here.
