Why is it that when someone is critical of police action in any paticular situation, they are assumed not to respect the difficuty of the job that they do? I understand that their job is stressful one that often puts them in harms way as they are often required to face various levels of danger while performing their job. I also believe that in most cases, they perform their duties such a level that honors their profession and warrants the utmost respect. But from time to time, they fail to meet the higher standards that their profession requires. In such cases, it is important that those who support the profession as well as those who are part of it, hold them to the higher standard; else the interity of the profession be in jepardy. 59 shots fired warrants a certain amount of scepticism. Someone asked about a specific number of shots that would be justified. They asked because they know that their is no way to answer such a question; but I will say that 15 shots would be easier to jusify. That would mean about 10 hits given the 43/59 hit/miss ratio. I've yet to see a man that 10 rounds center mass wouldn't subdue. Their is such a hugh difference in the amount of force required to subdue and the amount of force used that clooser examination is required.

P. S. The criminal record of this suspect appaers to have absolutely no relevance in this case.

B. J. Coleman ran himself off. Everyone else on the team understands that the only way to earn a starting job is to establish yourself as the best. There was no indication that he had played so great that he should've been handed the job. There waswithout also no indication that Crompton had won the job. Coleman started slow, but had gained some ground, but not enough to take the job at the point he wanted, so he started whining and then quit. The Vols are better off without the baby, and we will get at least one top QB in the class even if it's not Heap.

When was he told that he wouldn't be the starter? How many times was it said that it was very doubtful that a starter would be named before fall? How many starters have been named at other competetive positions? How many times have we seen good recruiters bring in top qb prospects even though they have top prospects waiting in line? After watching the O & W game, I came away feeling like it would be gameweek before we knew who the starter would be. Their was no clear winner. The one thing I'm sure of is that this staff hasn't hesitated to let players know if they don't believe they have a future here. The fact that they never told him that leads me to believe that he may have eventually EARNED the starting job. The Vols will be alright. Not so sure about young B.J.
