From my memory Nally was in trouble for shooting Ward a second time in the back when he no longer posed a threat and them beating him.
The prosecution argument was the the thread was no more when Ward was going away from Nally.

Bad form to criticise the man for finishing a job he started.

Positive discrimination like?
Or is it negative, can't remember. Who said it? VW or the members of the community?



Anyway, they must hate seeing the lads all crammed into the Passats looking into country houses.

The situation was clearly not grave enough to warrant a direct targeted centre mass shot. However, low and at the legs was appropriate course of action.

It must be taken into consideration that the impact may have been a ricochet, suggesting that the shot may have been a warning shot. TBC obviously.
well yes it is hollywood crap inspite what you saw on tv or the movies no person in real life trained with firearms was ever trained to shoot some one in the legs to stop a threat. its just not a thing

when a firearm is produced by some one with trained it is to end the threat and the way to do that in any training manual ive ever seen or heard of is shoot center mass. . no warning shots no scare tactics no attempting to injure.
read a few if you like there is plenty on line


No it is never appropriate to fire into someones legs either . the shot was to the dog where the threat was and ricochet was accidental

im afraid you very are wrong whether you care to admit it or not

It is quite possible that there was no ricochet.

There really is no evidence presented so far that there was a ricochet.

For those posters who don't seem to know what a ricochet is this is a dictionary definition.

"a ball or bullet that hits a surface and moves away from it at an angle, or an occasion when this happens "
