    Not saying they handled the situation the best way possible. Maybe they could have evacuated the neighborhood. Just saying if they had done nothing but let him run out of ammo, and someone got hurt, the police would be blamed for that as well.

      letting him shoot up the neighborhood until he ran out of ammo. But you sure beat the hell out of that straw man.

      Do you think killing people or doing nothing are the only two options for police? If so then by all means, the bad guys must be slain! Ask questions later!

        It is all straw because we are all reading the same few sentences.

        I am saying that the incidents like this can only increase in number as baby boomers enter dementia with their freedom guns at their side.

        Unfortunately getting older doesn't make you happier or more lucid. Many times getting older makes you just angry and confused.

        So what I am saying is that we need a plan.
