...let's call it the "Forcillo Principle"...
"The suspect subsequently abandoned the weapons and began making his way to the exit. He grabbed hold of a customer, an 82 year old man, and held him hostage.This officer, for whatever reason, instead of taking the shot, was physically close enough for this homicidal thug to get a petty good piece of him. This was the wrong tactical decision.
As he came out the doors to the rooftop parking lot of the Canadian Tire holding this hostage at knife point, he was confronted by responding police officers."
Palmer says one of those officers was stabbed in the abdomen and the neck, before police fatally shot the suspect.
If this officer dies, it will also be his last decision. If he survives, my guess is, he won't ever make that mistake again. I'm also guessing they'll be teaching this very scenario at Police College shortly.
If you read "Blackhawk Down", there's a point at which a soldier asks a Delta operator, "We're throwing grenades now?" The operator looks at him incredulously and responds, "They're not paying us to bring 'em back."
There's a reason cops carry firearms. It's not a fashion statement. Did this officer decide not to shoot because of all the proggies wailing about "victims rights?"
UPDATE: Well, there's your mistake right there
“We tried to use the least amount of force possible to take him into custody,” said Police Chief Adam Palmer**********
