    I am very "pro-police." I have no doubt that the police officers felt that their lives were in danger; he did back the SUV up toward them.

    But...120 rounds...they were feet away from the vehicle.

    1. Might be a little excessive - that many bullets. I understand there could have been confusion as to who was shooting at who, etc, because of all the bullets.

    2. O.K. Here is my real problem. Quote from the article:

    "Hayes was struck four times, in the toe, finger and shoulder. He was listed in stable condition at Torrance Harbor General Hospital on Monday afternoon."

    120 rounds? Only hit him 4 times?

    It sounds like they were attempting more to damage the vehicle and thus disarm him than they were attempting to kill him.

    these guys carry pistols with clips that have from 11 to 15 rounds. To have shot off 120 rounds, how many cops were shooting at him? At a minimum, 8 cops (emptying the mag) were firing weapons. 8 cops and they only hit him 4 times? somebody needs to go back to the target range. :2guns:

    4 out of 120 demands that they use clips, not mags. :whip3:
