Whats more worrying is that an estimated 50 rounds were fired but both targets were only wounded :?

An unarmed man has been shot dead by police in New York City hours before he was to have been married, prompting fury over the officers' actions.
Two of the man's friends were hurt in the shooting, which occurred outside a strip club where they had been celebrating before the wedding.
Police fired 50 bullets at a car carrying the men after it reportedly struck an unmarked police vehicle
A total of 21 bullets hit the car the men were in as they left the strip club, police said.
Bell was struck twice. The survivors were Joseph Guzman, 31, who was shot at least 11 times, and Trent Benefield, 23, who was hit three times. Guzman was in critical condition Sunday and Benefield was stable.
looks like those boys in blue need more time on the ranges.

Kelly has said that police shot at the car after it drove forward and struck an undercover officer and an unmarked police minivan. The information was based on interviews with witnesses and two officers who did not fire their weapons, he said.
But a witness account emerged Monday disputing that version of events.
Trini Wright, a dancer at the strip club where Bell's bachelor party was held, told the Daily News she was going to a diner with the men and was putting her makeup bag in the trunk of their car when the police minivan appeared.
''The minivan came around the corner and smashed into their car. And they (the police) jumped out shooting,'' Wright, 28, told the newspaper for Monday editions. ''No 'stop.' No 'freeze.' No nothing.''
looks like its going to be a hot winter in NY.

Just imagine what they would have done had he been South American and running to get on the Metro whilst wearing a heavy jacket!

Still, at least he wasn't chained to a lamp post bollox naked, pelted with flour and had his nuts greased.

31 times?

2 reloads? 1 up the spout and 2 full mags? That's a lot of trigger time.

Were the Officers being engaged at the time?

He had a stoppage, changed mag and then emptied it into the car.

Could be 1 reload, Glock 17 mag has 17 rounds therefore 2 mags = 34 rounds?

Great. The family has Al Sharpton, black America's Ian Paisley, as a spokesperson.

He will do his best to rile up the crowds and contribute absolutely nothing in the pursuit of justice. God, I hate self-appointed "community leaders."

Rev Al Sharpton is looking for the Democratic Presidential Nomination, so is trying to raise his public profile and will shout and scream about this as long as it's in the public eye and "going the black communities way"!

If she was standing at the boot (trunk) how come there's no mention of her getting knocked down when the police minivan 'smashed' into the car?
