According to ABC News, 71 shots were fired & his body was hit 60 times. The reporting varies but the core remains the same.
His 4 year old son was also home at the time. No matter how many different times he was shot, it occurred in front of his wife & with his 4 year old in the home. Shouldn't any decent amount of intel informed them of this fact? What if his son had been injured in that localized firestorm?
- They broke him & he armed himself as he'd been trained to.
- They originally claimed he fire at them. They later recanted, admitted he didn't fire, that he didn't even have the safety
- They admitted that they'd delayed the paramedics for attending to him & seeing as he wasn't pronounced dead till an hour after the shots.....
It was sloppy all the way around.
