You have to ask yourself just why this guy is allowed to carry a gun!
I also question why he is allowed to drive a car! I know that I don't want this guy anywhere near my neighborhood, especially if he is wearing a gun! This whole story is disturbing to me on so many levels!
You know, here in Texas and many other states that have a large hunting population, even the youngest of hunters are taught where the kill shots are, and that is usually not from an up close and personal, but from some distance away.
I cannot believe that this guy can't tell the difference of "behind the shoulder" and in the stomach! Why didn't he just shoot the deer in the head?
Fla. deputy had to shoot injured deer 17 times

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- A sheriff's deputy in Gainesville had to fire 17 shots to put down a deer hit by a car. The Alachua sheriff's department said the deputy was "horrified" by what happened Wednesday, and would be referred to a victim advocate.
The deputy didn't know where to shoot the animal, so he called a superior. The sergeant said to aim for the heart, behind the deer's shoulder. Instead, the deputy fired repeatedly into the stomach until the animal died.
The sheriff's department said the deputy did nothing wrong and won't be reprimanded. They now plan to train patrol staff to quickly kill a distressed animal that can't be saved, The Gainesville Sun reported.
Now the department is going to pay to send this poor slob to counseling? Because he is stupid and has his feelings hurt? Because he tortured a poor animal , already in distress, to death by shooting it in the stomach 17 times?
What this fool needs is to have his gun permit revoked, his badge removed, and a little time behind bars for animal cruelty! The Sheriff's department needs to accept responsibility for having such an inept, and badly trained character on their staff!
I wouldn't want this person any where near me, especially if I had a medical emergency! Suppose he called for assistance, and they told him to administer mouth to mouth...do you think he could find the right end?
Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside for a bit. Think I might have to add a shot of "snake bite medicine" to mine after reading about all these "Armed and Dangerous" folks out there!
