Maybe gunmen today are just that much more accurate than my sources suggest, if one drunken white off-duty cop in Baltimore can empty his weapon at an unarmed married black Marine, for the crime of being perceived to have flirted with the cop's date, and put 13 rounds out of one clip into him. (Uncredited, "Off-Duty Officer Fatally Shoots Unarmed Marine: Man Shot 13 Times Outside Baltimore Nightclub," WBAL-TV, 6/6/10.) "Nice shooting, Tex."
The Baltimore police are investigating to see if one of their own did anything wrong in this. Should I have any more faith in their investigation than I have in Israel's investigation of their own actions against the Freedom Flotilla, or BP's internal review of whether or not they did anything wrong on the Deepwater Horizon? Surely they wouldn't lie to the public, no more than Warren Buffet would lie about whether or not we can trust the ratings company he owns, Moody's, to regulate itself.
Sarcasm aside, wow. I've never in my entire life heard of even a sober cop, let alone a drunken one, hitting a target 13 times out of one clip. On the other hand, most cops don't know they're going to be in a gunfight until right when they draw their weapon; odds are, Tony Guglielmi had plenty of time to prepare himself mentally before he murdered a black guy.
Man. It's been a hell of a year, and it just keeps getting worse. Anybody who isn't depressed just isn't paying attention.
