They knew he was an old man. Wait it out. If it takes 24 hours, wait it out. Why put more officers in harms way to take out a 107 year old man? My dad is 79 and naps 5 times a day. It didn't work so well in Pittsburgh a few years ago when they stormed the castle on that nut job with the AK. He killed 3 of them before they finally took him into custody and now he is living off your dime at a tune of $35,000 a year.
Sam you are against an armed citizen pulling his weapon in a crowded movie theater but you support gunfire at a moving car on busy streets? I guess police are better trained to shoot with people around and not hit them? Oh wait, didn't they just light some dude up on the streets of NYC and hit couple bystanders? After the man was struck by a car?? http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/15/justice/t ... index.html
oh wait a minute, that is ok because they are cops. Let an armed citizen shoot and they are going to jail.
If someone crashed their car into my fence, do I have the right to shoot their car up? Just wondering. I realize if a car is coming at a cop he has every right to defend himself. However, that isn't where she died. It was after that happened that they took her out. My opinion is, she is unarmed and has a baby in the car. Get her stopped, slap the *censored* out of her, and get her the help she needs.
This will not further the current leaders popularity. It just makes him look like a thug.
