    I can't fathom someone making it to the age of 107 to be shot down by a SWAT team.  Were they not aware of his age and that he might not be thinking clearly?  Why did they decide to shoot him and not negotiate- at least for an hour or so?  I have seen too many videos in the last couple of years of elderly people being manhandled and roughed up by police with, seemingly, no regard to their age or frailty.  I wasn't there, so I don't know the complete story, but I have a harder time each day believing the police version of incidents like this.
