Arizona police shoot man in the back six times...

...and fail to kill him.

Which, as it turned out, was just as well:

PHOENIX (CN) - A homeowner says a Phoenix police officer shot him six times in the back during a 911 home-invasion call, and the 911 tape recorded the officer’s partner saying, “That’s all right. Don’t worry about it. I got your back. ... We clear?” The family says the officers were not aware that the 911 call was still recording as they spoke about covering up the shooting.
One salient point among many: Phoenix AZ police officers can shoot a stationary target six times in the back without a kill shot.
