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.
There is a good movie about ‘police’ intentions. It was called “Gaunlet” with Clint Eastwood and Sondra Locke as the poor ‘perp’ the entire police department wanted to murder before she could be arrested.
