Note to apprentice criminals: When you have a hostage, do not keep your head higher than and away from the hostage’s head. Also, do not stand still.

SWAT had a hostage?

I thought the robber had a hostage.

Maybe they both had hostages.

Took them long enough! It must not have been a head shot, cause you can see them putting cuffs on him.

Maybe the perp thought they’d shoot the hostage first giving him time to make his get away.

You know... you can see the swat team in the reflection on the store front windows. They were close. Like the guy thought they were going to let him just walk by? It is Denver... maybe he was enjoying the new recreational use of Marijuana?

Was he dead?

It looked like the SWAT guy was putting cuffs on him, but it didn’t show any movement from the perp on the ground.

Obammy care covers being shot in the head while holding a hostage 20 feet from the swat team. I’m pretty sure.... :) Its a pre-existing condition... so he can sign up for the insurance now. If he wakes up...

Looks like it was a shoulder shot.

But he's in critical, so he may not do it again. (A headshot would have been cheaper.)

“Foxnews said he’s in the hospital but not doing well.”

It is never a good thing when that grey matter stuff that is supposed to be contained inside your skull explodes and oozes outside the container.

7-Eleven hostage-taking suspect identified by Denver Police as Blas Leroux

A Colorado Bureau of Investigation report shows Leroux has used several other names. He has a lengthy criminal record including convictions for trespass, motor vehicle theft, assault, burglary, child abuse, escape and harassment.

They would have pu the cuffs on him even if his head were separated from his shoulders. You can never be too safe and the regs say when you have the perp you gotta cuff him.

I remember a hostage taker in Indiana did something like this only he wired the barrel of his shotgun to the hostage’s head with a coat hanger (end of barrel right against hostage’s temple) and taped his hand, with the finger on the trigger, to the stock. If he was shot the hostage was going to get it - no officers tried to shoot him despite being just a few feet from him.

Whoever had the clearest shot with the least risk for collateral damage, as decided by the swat sniper(s) and the team leader. I saw the video, looked like a clean shoot to me. He was using the Hostage as a shield, and was attempting to leave. What cops call "escalating" . The use of force policy in most departments calls for an attempt to de-escalate the situation when possible. Sometimes you get one who has no intention to calm down. In those cases deadly force is authorized to prevent further harm to the hostage and the public at large. While I have seen some questionable uses of force by cops these days this one is pretty straightfoward.

So if they shoot off someones arm, do they have to handcuff one arm and one disconnected piece?
