A man who was shot and killed Thursday by police in Louisville, Ky., was handcuffed before an officer fired his gun 12 times, Louisville television station WLKY reported. <u>Story here</u> Now, I'm just having a hard time with the fact that 12 shots were deemed necessary to subdue a man with his hands cuffed behind his back, even if he had pulled a knife from his pocket. <i>Twelve</i> shots? I know there are a few law enforcement people here, so I wouldn't mind hearing their input on this, also. It just seems to me, and I fully admit I am without law enforcement experience, that this is a bit extreme.
