By why we are on the topic of people getting shot multiple times...what do people think about that off-duty cop who just got shot (6?) times?
Unfortunate incident. Like you said the undercover cop was off-duty and thus was most likely not wearing his items/colours that would've identified him as an undercover.
Thus the cop that shot merely saw one man being chased down the road by someone weilding a gun, a potentially lethal situation which they then proceeded to try and stop.
Six shots seems excessive and the cop perhaps needs more training on fire control as similar situation could easily have led to members of the public being shot.
do i think its a race issue? no.
