This morning in Indianapolis a man with a rifle was about to rob a neighborhood "stop and rob." When police arrived and ordered him to stop and drop the gun he turned it on police. Several police officers discharged their weapons. He survived and was transported for medical care. He has been arrested. My questions is: Should those police officers be sent back for target training or be armed with more deadly firearms as a means of saving trial costs in cases of vicious armed criminals who should be dead not in jail?

No I am thinking that criminals cost society too much money.The threaten the police in the discharge of their duty.When confronted by a man with a rifle, I think they should have a better option than a pistol of medium caliber.Criminal dead? YES!
Sheila, you know my background so I am just going to correct you on one thing. There is NO SUCH THING as a police officer shooting to "injure", that is a bunch of Hollywood make believe. It's called deadly force for a reason.
