Police Shooting in Miami - Sounds Legit

Posted on the 07 April 2011 by Mikeb302000
The Miami Herald reports.
A Miami-Dade police detective shot and killed the driver of a car that officers were attempting to pull over after shots were fired from the vehicle.
Officials say someone from the vehicle fired an assault weapon in the direction of the officer as both vehicles were traveling along a Miami street about 10 p.m. Tuesday. The driver and the detective both stopped, exited their vehicles and exchanged gunfire.
Police say 24-year-old Jamal T. Singletary was taken to a hospital, where he later died.
The detective was not injured, and his name has not been released.
Police say they were pulling the car over because it had a stolen tag and had been driving erratically.
Where do you think all those guns in Miami are coming from? I don't think there being smuggled in from New York or Boston, do you? Could they be coming from FFL gun dealers who fail to do proper due diligence, like we see from time to time? What about from the theft of weapons not properly secured and stored by their lawful owners? That's a good source too.
The point is all these guns are coming from the lawful Florida gun owners. That's why Florida wears the crown and its gun owners are partly responsible for the gun violence.
