I am a former LEO. Something is not exactly right here. Not ready to condemn the officer, but not ready to compliment him either. Someone else mentioned that officers are trained to kill rather than wound for liability reasons. I don't remember this ever being mentioned during my training or any other time. I don't really buy that statement. The one about shooting toward the largest part of the body is true, however, just common sense. Of course, we all know that the deputy will be cleared of any and all wrongdoing, regardless of the facts. No need to waste time investigating.
