I heard this version for the first time yesterday. Up until then it was the husband that noticed a tear in the boat cover, got a ladder and climbed up to check, saw the body and called 911.
Which is the true story?
Heck, I don’t know.
In World War II, a lot of thought went in to figuring out where enemy submarines were hidden. If you were near enough to hear them, you could attack them, but just based on luck or instinct was not enough.
But then a mathematician figured out a search strategy. If you knew *about* where they were, a particular search pattern over a much larger area would radically reduce their ability to escape before you found them.
Importantly, you didn’t start in the middle, where you knew *about* where they were, but on the periphery of the search area. And then you worked your way to the middle.
And most of the time they *couldn’t* get away. A lot of German submariners died because of this algorithm.
I say this because the DHS and other large police organizations probably use similar search schemes. Their emphasis is on capture, not to protect others who might be harmed in the meantime.
If he wasn’t supposed to be arrested, then they would have just shot him when he got out of the boat.
That was really just poor grammar. They meant that after a day-long police manhunt, a homeowner found him.
This news lady was also unarmed.
I got a great idea,lets hire police, not executioners!
Really makes me wonder about all the shooters that "kill themselves". I think my Bull Meter is going off these days.
“They are obviously not trying to arrest him, they are into killing first, jury later. This is Banana Republic Police, a travesty of justice.”
Considering he killed a cop, a kid, other innocent people, and tried to shoot/blow up many others, I just can’t summon up any indignation that the cops took a “shoot first, ask questions later” attitude with this guy. For all they knew, he was going to run at them trying to set off a bomb just like his brother did. Shoot on sight, I say.
That is all Obama asks is the right to shoot all citizens on sight as soon as he defines them at terrorists. Like the US Army is defining anybody of faith excepting in Homosexuality.
Sure you want to go down that street? I personally would rather see terrorists picked apart and made fools of on tv instead of drunken Hollywierds and quiet little psycopaths. Besides, might give the little Jihadi something to think about.
And, it would be justice, not the Department of Just-us.
I hate the idea of building obama a Billion dollar video game so he can shoot hellfires at citizens for fun while he is stoned at night.
So how is a guy named David Henneberry taking the credit from this unnamed woman?
You have to respect the proprieties. They laid down a non-lethal barrage to provoke him into returning fire, which would justify killing him, unfortunatly he was unarmed, so all they could do was arrest him.
The best laid plans and all that.
More than one. I’ve seen several videos to that effect.
That's one version of the story. At least one eye witness had a different version. I'd like to see the video but I bet the police camera malfunctioned.
“So he was found in a boat with no power, no heat or air, no food, and awash in his own waste. Was that a hideout or a Carnival cruise ship?”
Ha! That’s post of the day material right there! Bravo!
It really doesn’t matter whether he was running at them trying to set off a bomb, or had just thrown a bomb and then ran at them shooting. It’s a distinction without a difference, when it comes to how law enforcement should handle the suspect.
“They laid down a non-lethal barrage to provoke him into returning fire”
Nah, the only reason it was non-lethal was because the kid was lucky enough to hide behind the engine block.
