  •  Let this guy escape? - they already did. (0+ / 0-)

    They had him pinned down in a street, and he blasted his way out through the road blocks. Listen to the tape, it sounded like something out of full metal jacket, and he still gets away.

    So now their strategy is to go house to house through a whole fucking town and they still can't find him.

    Standard US response - overwhelming force vs grey matter. Force always wins. Except of course in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.

    •  okay, so (0+ / 0-)

      what do you do differently, smart guy? Lay it out.

      Thanks to the internet, bullshit now travels at the speed of light.

      •  Ok- let's think about this. (0+ / 0-)

        This guy is not suicidal - he made sure he was clear when the bomb went off.

        When they were holed up in a street, they tried to fight back, but ineffectively.

        However, when the cops poured several hundred rounds down the street, the guy thinks I have to get out of here now, otherwise I am fucked.

        Police response, forget containment, we got AR15's let's have a shoot out.

        Maybe a calmer response would give them more time to effectively block the exits, a couple of 18 wheelers maybe.
