I understand a Cop not wanting to shoot someone, but damn. That lady could have been dead 4x over by the time the Cop finally shot that POS.

Old story, but one I think is worth repeating.

"At the core of his desperate firefight was a murderous attacker who simply would not go down, even though he was shot 14 times with .45-cal. ammunition — six of those hits in supposedly fatal locations."

Take care. Tom Worthington
I like to bring this story up when someone starts talking about the "stopping power" of 45 auto. :p

13 rounds shoot through the windshield, not really a good assessment of the stopping power of a round.
Because stopping power is a myth.

I think you missed this part of the article....

I was kind of paying attention to what was behind the 'target' . Looked to me like project apt. buildings.

The only instant death is going to be central nervous system or maybe a direct hit to the heart. Otherwise hes going to have to bleed out. He was dead within a minute. He was a determined guy. Good for him. He got on the internet.

Four-seconds there is like an eternity at least for the women he had already shot. Clearly when he smacked her with his gun - all hell let lose upon him. I'm thinking the big ape had so much lead shot in him, it looks like he collapsed from the weight of it!

I remember reading a story years ago about a man cranked out of his mind on LSD took a shot directly in the top of his head.... Went down, got back up and contined to fight until he bled out. No such thing as a "sure thing".

Yep, no such thing as a sure thing even with a head shot. One of my friends was killed by his wife then she shot herself in the head. It didn’t kill her, she woke up about twenty minutes later and shot herself in the head again, still didn’t die.

It's despicable that police are so scared now a days, they can't do what needs to be done!!!
I would have shot the guy way before he got near the lady!!!
He had a weapon, he didn't follow commands, he shot the lady after raping her!!!
Shoot 1st, shoot often, until the POS criminal is neutralized!!!
