NAT’L – LE – Why police shoot so many times to bring down a suspect

When police believe a suspect could harm or kill them, they’re usually trained to fire as many gunshots as it takes to bring that suspect down. The shooting itself almost always lasts only seconds. But questions about whether the number of shots officers fired was warranted — or whether that suspect posed a deadly threat to an officer in the first place — can persist long after that suspect is wounded or killed. Since George Floyd’s killing in May, police have had to answer to the public as protests over police brutality and systemic racism continue nationwide. This week, the spotlight is on police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, for the shooting of Jacob Blake, a 29-year-old father of three who was shot seven times while his children watched from his car. Blake is in serious condition at a local hospital, his family told CNN. Law enforcement departments have long fielded questions about why officers fired as many shots as they did at a suspect. Police shootings aren’t a science — they’re usually high-stress situations where adrenaline takes over an officer’s response — but some factors explain why officers shoot as many times as they do. The “textbook answer” is that officers fire until they’ve terminated a threat, according to Seth Stoughton, an associate professor at the University of South Carolina School of Law who studies policing. Officers use deadly force on a suspect they perceive to be an imminent threat of death or bodily harm to the officers or others. In training, police are told to use force until that person no longer presents a threat, Stoughton said. The number of shots it takes to “terminate a threat” depends on the circumstances. “Sometimes firing multiple shots makes complete sense,” said Stoughton, a former officer. “Sometimes firing multiple shots or the sheer volume or shots than officers fire doesn’t make sense.” If officers are using deadly force, they’re usually trained to not pause their fire and to shoot in quick succession — taking a break to assess the suspect they’re shooting at could give that suspect time to harm them or others, he said.  [full article]
