    I think the guy was convinced that the female officer would not fire on him.

    Yup, tell him once to drop the knife. If he doesn't comply, lead injections until you gain compliance.

    I suspect he may have been quite right.

    She'd have fired on him, she just had more hesitation to do so than the other officer who lit him up. He was obviously the more experienced leo.

    Instead of telling him "I don't want to do this" she should have told him "don't make me shoot you". When he took another step toward her, light him up. He was far too close with the blade, the other leo recognized that and intervened before he could get to her.

    I think you answered your own question.

    Hmmm, I wonder what caliber weapon was used? Am willing to bet we all know that answer, too.

Personally, Maddix fired too soon, too close to the propane tanks.
    When he started toward the propane tanks I thought it might get interesting. I half expected him to get them behind him and then advance on the officer.

    Mythbusters tested if a propane tank will explode if shot.

    A person can shoot a propane tank and make it explode.
    BUSTED

    First, the Build Team decided to test whether it was possible to breach a propane tank with Bondís 9mm handgun. They found that 9mm rounds were not powerful enough to breach the tank, but shotgun shells and .30 caliber rifle rounds were more than enough to pierce the tank. They then fired armor piercing rifle rounds at a tank filled with propane, but could not get the tank to explode. Not even tracer rounds were successful. Finally, the Build Team resorted to extreme measures. They found that the only sure way to make a propane tank explode was to use high explosive or a high powered Gatling gun firing incendiary rounds. The Build Team concluded that Bond (and most people) would not normally have access to such weaponry, busting the myth.

    I don't know the answer to that, but I know it could have been a 9 or 40 or 45, as there's numerous examples of each requiring multiple rounds to stop a threat. And even examples of all of those not affecting stops after more than 10 rounds into a perp.

    What round do you think they were using on the turd?

    The tanks are under pressure. Any tank under pressure will explode. A 9mm may not pierce the tank, but it can break the valve, and that can be deadly.

    I shot a full scuba tank once, actually twice. Had one that failed its inspection, so we filled it (Duh), took it out to a farm and shot it with my -06 with Mil rounds. First shot was slightly off center and knocked it over. The second round was centered in its base. We heard it hit and the sound of high-pressure air escaping.

    The first round had hit and glanced off, leaving a deep gouge in the tank. The second had made a deep crater and cracked the base, which is the thickest part of the tank. Kind of disappointed it didn't explode.

    The ones on Mythbusters were under pressure. How else would they test if the propane exploded?
