    Isn't there something about identifying your target?

    I can understand how this could happen. wait too long, you could be dead. Shoot too soon, you could shoot an innocent person.

    Like the Pirate Code, it's more what you'd call a "guideline" than an actual rule. If you'll remember, the police officer out in California who shot a black Honda Ridgeline with a white guy inside instead of a gray Nissan Titan with a black guy inside was recently found innocent of any wrongdoing by the local district attorney's office. I believe the term used was that he "was reasonably confused."

    When I was a young officer (late '70s), the Vice Division made raid on a bar in a rough area of the city. During the raid, one of the undercover officers was carrying a handgun and standing with his back to me. When he turned toward me he almost died that night. I saw the badge handing around his neck before I actually recognized him from previous investigations. Point is, it can happen.

    Although the article indicated the department official addressed the issue of poor communications as being investigated, I would believe it was a problem. If there were surrveillance officers inside that business, the patrol officers for that shift should have been made aware of the situation.

    Sounds like poor communication to me. You have let the dispatcher/other officers know when plain clothes officers are responding or at the scene. Things can get hairy very fast. Communication is key. I had a lot of guns pointed at me when I worked in Plain clothes by the guys in uniform. We're only getting a small part of the story here. Glad everybody will survive and hopefully this becomes a learning situation for everybody?---Sturgis
