    Some 'dirtbag' in Polk County Florida who got pulled over in a routine traffic stop ended up 'executing' the deputy who stopped him. The deputy was shot eight times, including once behind his right ear at close range. Another deputy was wounded and a police dog killed. A state wide manhunt ensued.

    The low-life was found hiding in a wooded area with his gun. SWAT team officers fired and hit the guy 68 times.

    Now here's the kicker:

    Naturally, the media asked why they shot him 68 times. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, told the Orlando Sentinel: 'That's all the bullets we had!!' (Talk about an all-time classic answer!!!)

    A freind of mine and fellow trapshooter was a deputy sheriff for 30 years. 35 years ago he was involved in a Board of Captains hearing due to a shooting. Same thing, "Deputy why did you find it necessary to shoot the suspect 5 times", "Sir, that is all the bullets my revolver holds". The shooting was found justifiable.

    CRITICIZING OTHERS IS A UNFAIR WAY OF PRAISING OURSELVES.
