    if he was aiming to kill he would have aimed at his head or upper chest..unless the perp did a cart wheel to avoid it im sure he didnt aim to kill..

    Actually… if required to use deadly force officers should aim to kill (at the center of mass) for all suspects/perpetrators. Being shot at does require a response of deadly force.

    My question is… how do you know or why do you assume the perp was black or hispanic?

    Prejudiced much?

    And to the others that are disappointed the perp wasn’t killed… how do you know the officer DIDN’T aim to kill and the suspect just moved.
