Got to admire the man for being honest.

Some 'dirtbag' in Polk County Florida who got pulled over in a routine traffic stop ended up 'executing' the deputy who stopped him. The deputy was shot eight times, including once behind his right ear at close range. Another deputy was wounded and a police dog killed. A state wide manhunt ensued.

The low-life was found hiding in a wooded area with his gun. SWAT team officers open fired and hit the guy 68 times.

Now here's the kicker:

Naturally, the media went nuts and asked why they shot him 68 times.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, told the Orlando Sentinel:

“Because that's all the ammunition we had!!”


That was 68 hits out of 110 fired by the way. They probably needed a rake and a rubbish sack to gather up the remains. And the dirtbag shot the deputy twice in the head, not once.

Don't bother checking Snopes unless you want to read the full story, this one is genuine.

Or as genuine as it will ever get in the circumstances.

I would bet that they still had ammunition left. The most common swat rifle holds 20 rounds x 9 = 180 + 10th man spare.
