It's Not Permitted for Cops to Shoot People Who are Lying on the Floor

I don't know why this is even a question, but the City of Framingham, MA has been arguing that it is OK to shoot people lying on the floor.

They've lost that argument.

Lost in the noise is the point that Balko mentioned: That the Framingham SWAT goons broke down a door of the home of a 68-year old grandfather in the middle of the night because of an allegation of a nonviolent offense, even after the main suspect had already been arrested.

The officer wasn't charged, but make no mistake: If you accidentally shoot another person in the head, you're probably going to prison for several years.
