    going to have to keep an eye on this one. sounds like this guy may be telling some fibs. the possible perp/victim was according to radio reports a longtime sex offender and had a rather lengthy rap sheet. but shooting while the guy is down... i think there is a lot more to this that may turn up

    Just another one of those, "here's my chance" moments. Many people can't pass up on them-- to bad there are consequences. Looks like he'll be sitting on a toilet in front of a judge soon.

    I guess we will have to see

    it does on face value to me too. waukesha is a very very very conservative county so we are liekly to get a good honest investigation. the LE there doesnt put up with much monkey business.

    I still remember a local Sheriff speaking to my senior class and advising that we not try to drag the body inside by ourselves, to let him help; apparently there is a technique (dude was serious as could be). He also told us our tint was too dark & to slow down going through town. Good guy; his kid went to school with me and remided me of Slater from Dazed & Confuzed.

    I'm all for shooting the guy the first time but I have problems with him shooting the guy while he's on the ground. It just seems wrong to me. unless the guy had a weapon and was trying to use it or get up to use it, I don't think you should shoot. I don't know the full details of the story so I don't know if the guy was armed, violent, or anything.

    Sounds reasonable to me. I'm not saying shoot a man while hes down, but if he stumbled of what have you, yea, sounds fine to me. Looking back on the situation, the shooter may agree that one was enough, but in a situation where your life is on the line, I would not hesitate for a moment to put two shots into dudder if it wasn't completely obvious that he was down for the count (no longer a threat). No indication of time between shots either so that's another factor.

    If someone rates one shot, they sure as hell rate two shots.

    It doesn't matter if he's standing, sitting, on the floor, or on the ceiling. What matters is whether he's a threat. Lots of people, especially in war zones, have been killed by someone who was lying down (prone position). It's a very stable firing position.

    The search warrant explains that Fitzsimmons shot Babe once in the chest, then again as Babe fell to the ground.

    Oops:eek:, I didn't see where it said he shot him as he fell. I'm fine with that.
