Add comment on:Cops train to kill: Salinas police Chief says, "We do not train to shoot people in the leg"
A reporter asked Chief of Salinas police why the officers didn't just shoot Mejia (Salinas Man Shot by Salinas Murdering Police) in the leg to stop him. "When we apply force, the force is designed to eliminate a threat. There is no guarantee that a single bullet is going to do that. We do not train to shoot people in the leg. Police are trained to shoot until that threat is eliminated,"
