"Spray and Pray", NYPD Ed.

An attempted murder suspect who fired at New York police was apprehended only after police engaged him in a gun fight, firing a barrage of bullets.

Of the 84 total shots cops fired, one struck the suspect.
Four cops fired 52 rounds and missed. The perp ran off. Two other cops then fired 32 rounds and hit the perp once, in the calf.

I know that the NYPD mandates a 14lb trigger pull, which must be beastly in a Glock. But the result, time after time, seems to be the same: If the NYC cops are shooting their pistols, the safest place to be (other than behind them) is where they are aiming.

Be fair. Most of the shots hit Amadou Diallo. They must have been close to him.

Actually, no. The cops who gunned down Diallo fired 41 shots and hit him 19 times.

I stand corrected. I had thought they hit him 41 times. Old age and alcohol is taking it's toll.
