    Instant incapacitation. That's the goal - textbook.

    I'm surprised he was shot in the shoulder and not in a spot where you could guarantee he would be incapacitated.

    1. All guns are always loaded.
    2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
    3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
    4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

    Never use a handgun if you have the choice of a long one!

    Sorry for his family. Sad to think his success was to bring them further sadness.

    Goal was to live a good life, eh? Apparently that includes armed robbery, hostages and human shields. What a guy.

    A good rifle is a better bet than spurious claims. LE knew it, even if he didn't.

    Condolences to the people involved who have to survive the wreckage this little felon wrought.

    Absolutely, if you know you are going in to a fight.

    The only reason I have a pistol is carrying a long gun around all the time would get old fast. DR

    He hit the ground like a ton of bricks. Definitely a more massive transfer of energy.

    This might make me a bad person, but I would have been happy if he had just bleed out on that sidewalk.

    He'd have cost folks somewhat less, that way. As it is, he's already cost far too many far too much.


    IMO, this is a good example of how straightforward the threat to innocents is. Don't hear many wailing about how LE was heavy-handed in this situation. Little different from any other perp advancing on innocents with apparent manifest intent to murder.

    He was an idiot, but desperate people do desperate things.

    Place was surrounded so good I can't believe he didn't think that would happen.
