Someone should teach the coppers how to shoot

Fatal shootings by police when confronted by agitated (and usually mentally ill) punters are becoming a far too common occurrence.

In the latest episode, three coppers shot and killed a man wielding a knife in NSW on Christmas Day – apparently while his family looked on.

You really have to wonder why they had to shoot him three times in order to disarm him and for that matter why they couldn’t shoot to maim rather than to kill.

But it’s ok because there will be a full investigation of the shooting – by the coppers
