    Between 2012 and 2018, 28.3 million mail-in ballots remain unaccounted for, according to data from the federal Election Assistance Commission. The missing ballots amount to nearly one in five of all absentee ballots and ballots mailed to voters residing in states that do elections exclusively by mail.
    States and local authorities simply have no idea what happened to these ballots since they were mailed – and the figure of 28 million missing ballots is likely even higher because some areas in the country, notably Chicago, did not respond to the federal agency’s survey questions. This figure does not include ballots that were spoiled, undeliverable, or came back for any reason.

    But if someone was just standing there with a knife, the officer would have no justification or need to shoot him. And he would probably have his taser out and try that first.

    If he was waving a gun around, it would be a different story.

    FWIU, many police departments treat someone armed with a knife little different than they do someone armed with a gun -- at least when they're relatively close.

    So you consider 1071 cases over 18 years to be "widespread voter fraud"?

    I agree with you. That's why I think his comments are a mix of pandering and of "making a point" rather than actually advising cops to shoot in the leg (I hope. He's certainly been in government long enough to know why that is a bad idea as a general policy).

    Did you notice how stiff he was and turned his whole body instead of his head? I bet he has PSP!

    I'm not sure I appreciate the distinction other than it sounds better from a public relations standpoint for police to say "shoot to stop" rather than "shoot to kill". One of the first rules of firearm safety is never point a gun at anything you don't intend to destroy, and any large calibre bullet to the center mass is more likely to be fatal than not.
