CPR on a trauma victim is not a high percentage technique. In fact, its effectiveness is close to zero.

Prayers for the innocent.

The officer may have been shot in the foot, according to news reports.

A K9 may have been injured.

The suspect is work material for the Office of the Medical Examiner.

It sounds like the cop did good.

Another example of poor marksmanship on the part of the LEO. Personally I'm embarrassed and ashamed of our cops shooting abilities. How many times do we hear about three officers sending 54 rounds at a BG and not hitting him once? Meanwhile those rounds are flying off into neighborhoods with innocent adults, children, and property. When I started we had six shots on board. I remember when they made us switch to Glock 17s and marksmanship turned to crap.

A police office has been shot. Is this really the place for a rant about 'what if' involving all the imaginary children, women, and men that were wounded in the halls of your mind as a result of random police gunfire?

Please call 602.223.2514 during business hours and speak to a SME about your concerns.

What is your deal? You seem to show up in threads, spout some inflammatory crap about law enforcement today versus when you were on the street, and then leave the thread to fester. Can't you take your bull**** elsewhere?

Unfortunately the K9 has passed away from his wounds. RIP, boy.

Husker, am I missing something? I don't see anywhere how many rounds were fired by the police or how many officers fired. Where exactly are you getting the information for your statement?

Update: The K9 died overnight.

According to the alternative universe view, it was because an officer was a lousy shot and killed the poor dog with random recon by fire.

Nothing has been released about the number of rounds fired, who initiated the shooting, etc., but that never precludes the self appointed omniscient from pronouncements that substantiate their warped world view.

Did anyone hear what the dead perp's name is? I know an evil minded crazy Ahole who lives near Glendale who's been saying for years that he plans to commit suicide-by-cop someday, and I keep waiting to see him on the news at any time.

Ironically, when I tried to report him to the Glendale cops a few years ago before he owned any guns, (he now has a few) they scolded me for calling them on a guy "who hasn't broken the law yet", and told me that "as soon as he shoots someone, you call us back and we'll come and arrest him".

I am gonna try to keep it civil unlike others who know little about the facts...

Fortunately Wes's injuries are minor although he was hit in the gun hand. He will make a full recovery.

There wasn't dozens of rounds fired. I am personal friends with all the officers involved- all are excellent marksmen. I would point out though that even the best marksman becomes less than ideal when in the midst of a gunfight. Azhusker only shows his ignorance.

HOWEVER, if there had been dozens of rounds fired, this spot would have ideal for it. Bad guy was below ground level, in a hole for a ground level trampoline.

Wes' k9 took bullets meant for him, and we are thankful for that sacrifice.

GPD did a great job, plain and simple. Please pass on to everyone on that squad my appreciation for a job well done.

If there is a fund set up for Ronin's memorial, please post the information here and I will be proud to contribute. Your agency's K9s have helped me in the past. I am glad that Ronin's death was avenged in the proper manner and I hope Wes got the fatal shot into the (insert appropriate obscene reference here).

Prayers for the officer Wes' recovery.

I am sorry about the K-9. As a dog owner, these instances truly sadden me.

Other than that, there is a time and place to beef about police officer shooting abilities, lack of tactics, etc. Having known the OP for several years on the internet, I am sure this was not his intent in starting this thread. I would strongly suggest anyone who wishes to do so start another thread of their own and have at it.

It's all theory and conjecture until rounds start flying at you and men are hit.
