Maybe I missed it, but the exerpts seem to be speaking of calling the cops, and not cops witnessing a crime.

Thanks for the reply.

Interesting scenario, while it is likely to happen in a "bad" area, could actually happen anywhere. I agree with lima, if my family is with me, I call police and keep them safe, they are my first priority. Secondly it depends upon where, if i am in my town with my normal CC I only have 8 rds, 9mm, a reload and bug. but the first shots must count and add the adrenaline and fear... wow... out side of town i carry higher capacity and larger caliber sometimes, might be more prepared.
I would call 911
make safe, observe what is behind
if need or choose to act, do so from cover, and hit the first target

I think I would just shoot them...
With my camera phone.

yeah, I hear ya on being responsible for bullets that leave your gun, but my impression was that the odds of a bullet shot in the air hitting someone on the way down with enough force to injure or kill are pretty infitesimle. Are the odds significantly higher than infitesimle?
Maybe shoot off to the side away from the crowd, into the ground, then? Or would that be more of a, in the country, no one else around move?

exactly Jerry, the case that Travis is referring to is the the failure of LEO in getting to the scene when someone calls 911, not witnessing something in progress

Only in the movies does someone go up against odds of 4-1 and expect to walk away. 5-1 really considering that the last guy can cover distance pretty easily, or pull their own weapon while you are distracted.
Too many other variables would be in place for me to say for sure one way or another. 5-1 can kill a man very easily even with bare hands. However, if it were a child, then yeah, it would be a bad day all around.
Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.
