Police call it “sympathetic fire.” One officer shoots, so the other officers shoot. The phenomena accounts for more than a few instances where a bunch o’ cops let loose an inordinate amount of lead.

I’m thinking here of the Charles Dorner-related LAPD shooting, where eight jumpy LEOs fired more than 100 rounds at a mother and daughter delivering newspapers, believing them to be the cop killer. As often happens in these cases of frenetic fire, they more-or-less missed. Same deal here, where a Washington state Deputy responded to a suicide . . .
