    does anyone know why the feds....

    lethal force was used in the recovery of one Hanna Anderson (16), a kidnap victim last sunday, returning her to her father. she was taken by a long time family friend and alleged murderer of her brother (8) and mother (44) after the suspect apparently set fire to his own house killing most of her immediate family. he then fled with Hanna into the River of No Return wilderness (idaho?) where the two were spotted by someone on horseback. the fbi were forced to land a 2.5 hour hike away from the the campsite of James Lee Dimaggio in order to rescue the girl safely, ending a massive manhunt the stretched from mexico to canada.

    thats all the info i was able to find on the story and while i believe he deserved every bit of what he got, i am curious about the particulars.
    was he armed? did he threaten to harm the girl? ect.

    "Once the teams set up, they waited until DiMaggio and Hannah separated, and moved in," the Valley and Ada county sheriffs' offices said.
    Authorities ushered Hannah to an area where a helicopter could whisk her away.
    At some point, a "confrontation" ensued between authorities and DiMaggio, San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said. The confrontation ended when an FBI tactical agent shot and killed the murder and kidnapping suspect.

    Not sure if he was armed, and yes he got what he had coming as far as I am concerned, short of allowing the father to have some alone time with him in a room with a baseball bat.

    ...fleeing felon...hostage...bought and paid for if he was naked and waving a hippie flag...not pertinent if he was armed or threatened anyone...

    ...the particulars will "be released" as the feds feel necessary...

    I guess they did what they felt needed to be done.

    All in all I'm not overly inclined to dig too deep into this one.

    They saved lots of tax dollars, and I'm fine with that.

    I wondered the same. So a cadre of extremely well-armed and equipped agents couldn't bring back one SUSPECT alive? Pretty poor.

    I'd still like to see the video. What? No video? Guess they forgot some stuff. :rolls eyes:

    I'm in this camp. I'm all for due process, but not when it may have put the girl in danger. I saw "good job" to the police on this one.

    Sounds good in theory...

    unless you are the kind of person that refuses to be taken alive. Then you do what you gotta do.

    Naw man. Catch 'em in the act of attempting to commit a violent felony, sure, shoot. But having separated them, this is just 'zeroing out' the suspect. Not the way we do things here.

    Show me the video. It's just TOO DAMN easy to say 'oh he resisted'. Resisted WHAT? A dozen armed guys? Did he shoot himself? If not take up a position and capture him. Come on, Frank Buck could do it to tigers.

    ...after all he'd done...bringing him back was the important part...alive?? this wasn't a shoplifter in downtown Secaucus...zero risk to the girl and the LEOs would have been my only consideration...
    ...if you seriously expect a video in the circumstances they found him in, you don't know a lot about police work...

    pretty conflicted, i have a foot in both camps. i think anyone would want to be behind the trigger for a situation like this, or better yet, the Louisville option; but i cant help but agree with BadgerJ. A well armed/trained team v.s. one guy with the element of surprise, in the woods (lots of cover) and they couldn't take him alive? not inclined to believe that. being judge, jury, and executioner is a dangerous line to walk. just ask Dredd.
