Yea Gunny, the 2 year old was obviously guilty of attempted robbery...

You are as obtuse as a human can be. You are proof people can coma-walk...
It is just as "obtuse" to believe police purposefully shot a 2 year old.
Or to place all of the blame on the police and none on the CRIMINAL WHO JUST ROBBED A BANK.

I TOTALLY blame the people that shot the 2 year old...the POLICE...

The 2 year old and his mother had nothing to do with the bank robber or the robbery. They were at a Wendys drive-thru and the robber carjacked the vehicle ...

Authorities say 2-year-old old Daniel Crichton was shot in the arm and upper torso on Friday after a suspected bank robber forced his way into the car in which the toddler was seated.

The child's mother, Joann Cooper, was hit once in the foot. A 7-year-old girl also in the car was not injured.

The suspect was killed but has not been identified.

Five officers with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office fired a total of 42 rounds at the vehicle.

The gunman did not discharge his weapon.

Sheriff John Rutherford had few solid conclusions about the complex sequence of events that played out Friday afternoon at a suburban commercial strip. Five officers fired during the shooting, which Rutherford characterized Saturday as a "very volatile situation."

None of the officers have been formally interviewed as a criminal investigation is underway. An administrative review will follow if the State Attorney's Office determines no laws were broken by the officers.

"I just don't want to try to speculate on why they felt the need to shoot at the suspect while he was in the vehicle," Rutherford said Saturday.

Sheriff's Office policy prohibits officers from firing at a moving vehicle other than as a last resort to prevent death or great bodily harm to the officer or another person; as a last resort to prevent escape of a felon who would pose imminent threat of death or great bodily harm; and when authorized by a watch commander or higher authority.

"If the officers felt that they had a opportunity to end it without endangering the carjack victims, then I think it was wise that they would try to do that, if they could do that safely," Rutherford said Saturday. "And I don't know the answer to all that yet."

Believe it or not sometimes cops do **** up. I know, I know, extremely hard to believe, but it does happen.

Anyway here goes my blue sky speculation.

The cops didn't shoot the kid deliberately. But some of the cops' bullets or a bullet, hit the kid. So the kid was shot by a cop or cops.

Question – were the cops legally justified in discharging their weapons in these circumstances? We don't know yet and we won't know until there's been an investigation and it's going to have to painstaking and highly detailed.

However, I don't think it was a good idea and it may come down that the cops were simply not acting properly in shooting at the suspect who was apparently inside a vehicle with innocent people. I know I will be accused of Monday morning quarterbacking but when you are given a firearm at work you are assumed to be well trained and capable of making the necessary judgements to ensure that you use the firearm responsibly.

Five cops, 42 shots into a vehicle which was being carjacked by an offender and had innocent persons inside that vehicle. I'm really glad I'm not one of those cops.
