I opined the same thing days ago. They weren’t acting like someone that wanted to capture and arrest him. Acted like they wanted to keep him from a show trial and talking.
I’d previously posted no opinion but my private thoughts were along those lines. Actually, in my thinking I broadened the context to how actual policing gets done in such extreme cases with the concept being we are pointing towards more of these, IMO. There are many lessons to be learned here.
