1. "Dublin man shot, injured by after threatening police officer with
knife" How did this slip past quality control?

2. Who pays for the perpetrator's injuries?

Several Shots????
How far away was he?
I can hear the police doing practice shooting in the mornings.
With all that practice, it seems like they would be better shots
than that! At least the father reported him, unlike the mother whos
son shot up the children in SandyHook School. She should have
done that too. She was irresponsible and now we're all paying
for her negligence.

Sounds like a set-up to me to try to sue City of Dublin police. So many in the African American community do this, it's known as the "ghetto lottery." With names like "Blaine" and "Cox" - we can assume that these are Caucasians we're dealing with - so they knew the police wouldn't try to make Ryan good just for brandishing a knife. Now they have a case where police shot a man on private property. Don't be too surprised if John Burris or another scumbag lawyer gets involved suing the police department for "violating his civil rights."

Did you mean to say Caucasoid?
