Also does not know the USA is a republic.
America Is a Republic, Not a Democracy
America is a republic and not a pure democracy. The contemporary efforts to weaken our republican customs and institutions in the name of greater equality thus run against the efforts by America’s Founders to defend our country from the potential excesses of democratic majorities. American republicanism and the ordered liberty it makes possible are grounded in the Federalists’ recognition that non-majoritarian parts of the community make legitimate contributions to the community’s welfare, and that preserving these contributions is the hallmark of political justice. But, the careful balance produced by our mixed republic is threatened by an egalitarianism that undermines the social, familial, religious, and economic distinctions and inequalities that undergird our political liberty. Preserving the republican freedoms we cherish requires tempering egalitarian zeal and moderating the hope for a perfectly just democracy.

Someone shot in the leg can still shoot you.

If anyone does, I'll guarantee it't someone who has never been in a shooting fight.

If you are ever going to shoot someone, aim for central mass, the chest or if you're that a good enough shooter their head. Mike

I understand why he would say that. If you shoot center mass logic says you my hit the heart or lungs or other major organ leading to death. People think shoot them in the leg, they will be hurt bad enough to stop, but would not be fatal. It's a nice thought, but someone shot in the leg can still return fire injuring or killing somebody. Also, if the femoral artery is hit, it could still be a fatal wound in as little as 90 seconds. Trying to hit a smaller, most likely quickly moving target also leads to greater chance on missing the target and causing unintended injury to an innocent bystander. I wish it were like in the movies and the good guy was able to shoot the gun out of the bad guy's hand. Everybody goes home relatively unharmed. I have seen a sharp shooter do this with a sniper quality rifle and scope from a resting position against an immobile target.

I know why Uncle Joe thinks the way he does. I watch a lot of old Cowboy and Detective shows on the old show networks and many times the hero will merely wound the bad guy intentionally. I bet whilst he hunkers down in his basement bunker Olde Joe also enjoys them olde shows. Unlike Uncle Joe I know that is not real life.

Cops shoot to kill for one reason because in court only the cop gets to tell what happened.

You can definitely tell Joe never visited a police academy.

If an Officer does not shoot to kill, he should not be shooting, period. Once he decides to shoot, it is the use of deadly force, period. Instead of shooting to wound, he should not have shot at all and used some other method to stop the suspect. Other methods being either physical force or mace or a taser. Shooting to wound is just nutz!!!!!!!!

The fact that an Officer used his firearm means that in his judgement, physical force, mace, or a taser was not an available, or a safe option. Forget about the fact that a suspect only wounded, can still kill either the Officer or innocent bystanders, but if the Officer only meant to wound the suspect, but kills him anyway because a bullet to the arm or leg severed an artery and the suspect bled to death, then the Officer has committed negligent homicide. Or maybe this article says it better than me.

Uncle Joe has thrown the Police under the bus to appease his Bat Crap Crazy Brown Shirts. It is a calculated political move. Whether or not he has ever visited a Police Academy is academic. If he did, he was there to lie. He sure didn't listen to anyone unless they were promising him political support.

He'd have to be a policeman to actually understand dealing with a criminal.
He doesn't have sense God gave a pissant.
