A Really Bad Police Shooting

I can't wait to see how they try to cover this one up.

Police in a Sacramento suburb are investigating an officer's shooting of a handcuffed suspect while he was detained in the back seat of a squad car.

Elk Grove Police officer Christopher Trim says it's not clear why the officer shot John Hesselbein early Sunday. Hesselbein was grazed in the face by the rifle shot. Trim tells The Sacramento Bee the shooting did not appear to be accidental.
What do you think? Is there any way such a shooting can be justified?

Please leave a comment.


  1. perhaps the victim was being sassy?

  2. Yes, indeed, Microdot. Aside from disobediance, the next best reason for a police shooting is back-talking.
