    Dang, I wish these people in Memphis would learn how to shoot. Unload your entire magazine and reload again and keeping firing, at least one of the rounds will hit the mark. This city is a combat zone, that’s why the police will put a dozen or more bullets in a person.

    I live in Texas. I had a break in at one time. The cops were called. They told me to shoot him EVEN IF he was leaving…drag him back inside the house. NO QUESTIONS ASKED.
    He explained that it keeps it from getting even to court AT ALL.
