Whenever we have another one of those accidental shootings during drug raids, the officials are always quick to assert that such a thing is unbelievably rare.

Really?

Can they still call it rare when it no longer suffices to list the victim by name?

“Oh, you’re talking about the Jose Colon who was accidentally shot by police during a drug raid in Bronx, New York?

I was talking about the Jose Colon who was accidentally shot by police during a drug raid in Suffolk, New York.”
