    There's already a thread running about this OLD news.

    I got half way through and couldn't read any more...

    "responding officers believed they were going into a violent hostage situation with a heavily armed and dangerous Green Beret.

    Las Vegas MPD responded with a city-wide alert, street closures, helicopter support and deployment of a Mobile Command Center."

    It really speaks for itself...

    Why is this being broguht up again? Isn;t this the 3rd thread on this in the last week or so? BTW: I wasn't there and only can go by the news. And this article does not seem to jive with some of the others I have read. Not taking a side but I don't think this is accurate reporting.

    This has been hashed to death on every news station in the country. Only those that were there will really know what happened.

    However, it appears that he did not comply with the officer's requests when he got MWAG'ed.

    I don't care how right I am, if police ask me to disarm, I will intently follow their instructions.

    Not from the articles I have read. The witness said he was in slow motion, then reached for his gun. Intentions aside. Its not police SOP to tell someone to reach for there gun to disarm them.
