I'm curious to know what some of my fellow Taurusarmed members think about this shooting? Personally, I'm on the fence but leaning toward excessive. While I do believe the use of deadly force was certainly justified here, after the first few shots things get hazy for me. At that point the store employee comes around the counter to where he can get a better sight on the guy he just dropped, and at that point unloads the rest of his mag into a prone target, which appears to be around 13 shots, over the course of 4 full seconds. On another forum I saw this video and I pointed this out to some of the more, shall we say over zealous kill all thugs because they deserve death types, and was met with (by a few of the more level headed ones mind you) that the perp could have still have been perceived as being a threat as even though he was down, he still had a gun within reach. I can respect that. However I can't help but think (or I'd like to at any rate. None of us really know until the lead starts flying) that I would have kept him at gun point at that time once he was prone and I no longer had a gun pointed at me, and called in the troops rather than firing until my slide went back on an empty chamber. Regardless of where we fall on this one, I doubt very much Massad Ayoob will be using this video in his classes as what to do in lethal self defense scenario. Video is fairly graphic, so if you don't want to watch someone catch one hell of a case of lead poisoning, don't watch.
