That was my initial thought, too. "This is what happens when you let your marksmanship skills lapse. Why didn't you kill the guy?"
Then I remembered that juries are FAR more sympathetic toward surviving NOK than they are toward the dirtbag who got shot. This will be in the county's best interest, financially.
As states, counties, and municipalities continue their suicidal march toward insolvency and anarchy we may see a whole new approach to deadly force; "Shoot him enough to stop him from hurting someone, but for God's sake whatever you do, don't kill him!"
(Close behind that one will be disarming LEO's, because they'll decide that it's cheaper to pay off their life insurance than it is to pay off a successful lawsuit by the criminal or their family.)
