Negotiating For Fonda

Deandre Brunston, age 24, shot at 81 times by the police, struck by 22 bullets. The policemen's bullets also struck a police dog, the dog died after being airlifted to a hospital. Brunston bled out at the scene. The incident took place in August 2003 in Compton. Brunston was unarmed and according to reports was holding a flip-flop he had found on the porch. Brunston had said he would surrender if he could speak to his pregnant girlfriend Fonda.

Amazing. The dog was airlifted, meanwhile, the cops were too busy shooting to notice they had already struck him 22 times. Last time I checked, police only use non automatic weapons. That means, if they fired 81 times, they used roughly 4.7 full clips, and at a standard firing rate of one clip per .7 seconds and a reload rate of 2.5 seconds, they fired for a total of roughly 70 seconds. Combined. So, without knowing exactly how many cops were involved, we'll say 4 cops fired simultaneously for 17.5 seconds. Full on. At one man, unarmed, carrying a sandal. How long do you have to stare at a sandal before you realize that it is infact a sandal? 3 seconds? That's for slow people, drunks just waking up, and crack heads. Somehow, the dog made it to an airlift. Amazing. Simply amazing.
