    Leg shots can be fatal quick. You got a mighty big artery running through each one.

    Okay, I watched the first shorter one earlier today and now I've watched this longer one twice. A few things, this cop is very lucky. If the BG had waited til he was past the cop to attack, things could have turned out very differently. Also, at PBR he hit him in the leg?
    I'm not judging the cop harshly. This situation developed very quickly. I guess things like this are like landing an airplane. Any one you walk away from is a good one and I'm glad he'll sleep safely in his own bed tonight.
    To Wambli's question about intensive care, I'm guessing but the way the BG dropped like a sack of potatoes he was hit in the femur. May have even nicked his femoral artery.
    I must say I was impressed with the cop's reaction after the shooting. He seemed very calm and just did his job. At about the 7 minute mark I'm sure the citizen was saying, "Looks like I picked a bad day to quit smoking" lol

    "Also interesting the guy is shot in the leg but is in Intensive Care???"

    Complications, infection, fatty embolism etc.....

    They assailant dropped a lot quicker than I've seen others go down when shot. I find that very interesting, since we talk a lot about bullet/caliber effectiveness.

    That tends to happen when you get shot in both legs at the same time. Kinda leaves you without a leg to stand on so to speak :tooth:

    Umbrella Man seems to have a history of randomly attacking LEOs. Maybe they should put him away for good.

    Yeah, I read the article too. Here, the charge would undoubtedly be attempted Capital Felony murder. He'd get a mental evaluation at taxpayer expense. The dashcam is dead bang evidence of guilt. the state's head shrinkers would say, yes, he's a nut but competent to stand trial. Court appointed defense will say he's too much of a nut to know right from wrong and further more he lacks the capacity to plan the crime.
    Evidence would be introduced that his mother was addicted to crack and an unknown boyfriend of hers hit this guy in the head as an infant. Then we'd be told he bounced around the foster care system where he was abused.
    A distant cousin would testify that he'd turned his life around and was shocked at this incident. A pastor would testify at the sentencing hearing that he'd been mentoring him since his incarceration.
    About 3 years from today jury selection would begin. He'd eventually be found guilty but the judge would order him sent to the nervous hospital.

    A few years later one of two scenarios would play out. Either he'd murder a social worker at the nervous hospital and be found guilty of murder. Or some doctor would say he's safe as long as he takes his meds and should be paroled. Shortly after being paroled he'd kill a cop.
    He'd get the needle this time. Approximately 18 years later after the appeals process had played itself out with assistance from the ACLU and the Southern Poverty Law Center he'd ride the needle while crowds outside the prison held candle lite vigils.

    This is assuming of course that some governor didn't commute his sentence in the meantime. Despite the fact that he'd tried to kill prison guards in the meantime.
    And we're a fairly conservative state.

    The liberal experiment has failed.

    The reason why one should endeavor to aim for centermass, legs are just too iffy.....

    The shot probably hit at least one femur. If it was a hollowpoint, it most likely did some major damage. It's hard to stand up when that bone is compromised- - - - -the pain alone would make most people collapse.

    Building on your premise, I wonder about what difference it could make to have an assailant hit in a lower extremity rather than the torso, with respect to incapacitation. Granted, just because you can't stand doesn't mean you're out of a gunfight, but an assailant with a knife (as in this case) or other weapon would be effectively stopped, yet we've all seen stories of cases where an assailant sustains multiple torso/upper extremity shots and keeps coming.

    One case isn't enough to bolster a hypothesis, but if anyone here has a case they can remember that speaks to this, it may give some perspective.

    The pelvis is supposed to be a quick incapacititator, but I wouldn't aim for anything but center mass. A head shot would incapacitate the quickest, but it is much harder to hit someone in the head (bobs and weaves to much). The leg would also be harder to hit. Go for the highest percentage shot.

    That cop is kucky. The crazy guy announced his plan before he leapt foward. If he had kept his mouth shut, I think the LEO would have an extra hole in him

    Excellent evaluation. Texas has not quite yet descended to that level, but we are probably only one Clinton-like governor away from it.

    The guy wanted to be shot. He had all the time in the world to stab the officer. He pulled the knife and made a move then hesitated and said "Cmon" as if to say, let's get it on!
