Ruiz said she understands the man who shot her son was defending his family, but she asked, “Why shoot him four more times? Why did he shoot him five times?”

Not to be cold-hearted about it but it was to make sure he was dead. When you're at the point were you have to use a gun, it's to kill someone. There's no way around that.

I agree. The guy did what he had to do.

People have no concept of reality anymore. I'm sure the mother is thinking her son got shot once, died, then he shot him 4 more times out of some form of malice or hatred.

If you chop a chickens head off it runs around. If you shoot a human in the heart he still has "life" in him. Anything short of severing the brainstem and someone can still take minor action while dying.

More than dead, you shoot to immediately incapacitate.

That's even harder than mortally wounding, it limits you to massive CNS damage or blood loss.

Bingo. Trying to tow the line between incapacitating someone and killing them isn't an easy thing in a high-stress situation anyways.

I'll try and respond to the mother: "He was shot 5 times because you did a shit job raising him and he had it coming". I hope that helps you dumb cunt.

Snub nose revolver? Cause I would have shot him 15 + 1 times and then reloaded.

I've actually been told that if you ever have to use a firearm in self defense unload the entire mag, it helps paint you in a panicked state for the jury.
