Flawed logic

“Fearing for Mr. Kinsey’s life, the officer discharged his firearm, trying to save Mr. Kinsey’s life,” says John Rivera, president of the Dade County Police Benevolent Association. “And he missed, and accidentally struck Mr. Kinsey.”

I was reminded of the words in 1968 of a U.S. major in Vietnam about the city Bến Tre: “It became necessary to destroy the town to save it.”
