    But if you were fleeing then no bullets are going to pull a u turn in midair to hit the top of your head or your front.

    •  That isn't the point (0+ / 0-)

      The point is he was initially running FROM the cop. As AJayne said if you bring your arms up over your head in an instinctive way to cover your head, a shot could have hit the inner arm. And THEN he turns around and gets the rest of the shots frontally.

      ALL of our institutions have been hollowed out by the greed ethos. There are none left with heart intact or souls for that matter. So the zombie is all around us - me

      •  Who does that? (0+ / 0-)

        Who tries to run very fast while their arms are up over their head, other then the Muppet Kermit the frog?

        Who tries to run very fast, without their arms pumping for speed at their sides?

        More likely that the first couple/few shots missed, because marksmanship is only around one third accuracy, and then Mike spun around with his arms straight forward.

        What is so irritating about this is all the people who seem to be applying movie screen edu-ma-cation and timing to a real-world event. In the movies the cop is able to hear a person say they surrender but real world facts of adrenaline induced auditory exclusion demonstrate that the movies are effing lying and filling the heads of the general public with ripe pungent bullshit. Same with movie cops super fast recognition of arms pointing at them to aim a weapon or to communicate 'stop hold up wait'. Same with the idea that a bullet forcefully spun the guy around - hard science says that's ripe BS because it would also spin the cop around per 'equal opposite reaction'.

        MLK never really took back these words - "Maybe we just have to admit that the day of violence is here, and maybe we have to just give up and let violence take its course. The nation won't listen to our voice - maybe it'll heed the voice of violence."
