Clint talking to a chair?  That's some damned inspired casting!


I remember when Clint was really cool.  Now he's a senile old man... sadness...

The chair is to get Crazyguy to sit still. He then makes a much better target than when he is up pacing and twitching all over.

Cythraul: Why the hell did he take the girl hostage to begin with?


According to the local news, he had a cellphone and told the local responders to call a cop in Texas.  He had the number pulled up in his phone, but they couldn't get the call to go through.

That's gun control.

Sometimes the cops f•ck up epically. Other times, they do really, really good work.

There's just something about this I find a bit fishy... presumably SWAT would have been deployed, perimeter secured, etc.  And it's the police chief who just simply walks up to him and "BANG" in the head?  Yeah, I don't think it went down EXACTLY as reported.

I'm not saying the cop's a hero for what he did, if it happened exactly as described.

Rarely happens. Most people who feel the need to carry a gun pee all over themselves in fear if the wind blows too hard, they'd never actually be able to respond in a crisis situation. The movie they think they are starring in  just isn't that good.

The tv bit I saw had a video (not of the actual shooting, obviously.) Another officer spoke to him, causing him to look away. This guy then walked up, shot (video of brain splatter not shown) and then scooped the babby and moved away quickly. It was very fast.

There's video. Every inch of WalMart is recorded.

Clearly a typically heinous over-use of force by another Nazi Cop.  I've played 1430 hours of SWAT 3 so I know a little something about this sort of thing!  All he had to do was flashbang the room, jump over a counter and melee the guy with his baton, problem solved.  I mean, give a guy a gun and a badge and he thinks he's a demi-god, going around deciding who lives and who dies.  It's amazing that he could find time between taking bribes and planting evidence to actually show up.  I hope he gets charged with murder.  Disarm the Pigs!!!11eleven!!

(Sorry, the lack of cop-hate in this Fark thread was making me nervous.)

In all seriousness, while the ending is unfortunate, if this cop accomplishes nothing else of significance in his entire career, he will always know that someone's daughter gets to grow up and have a life because he was there to make a difference.  Good for him.

I want to buy this mother-farker a beer. give this dude a month of family leave and some post-trauma counseling. Having to do that kind of shiat will mess you up.


Yeah, he's going to have that scene playing in his head for life. :(

Dingleberry Dickwad: I'm curious as to how many posts it'll take before some asshat comes in bashing the cop for using deadly force instead of injuring the guy or trying harder to talk him down. Seems a bit odd that they tried negotiating with the guy for 30 minutes and suddenly dude decides he's gonna countdown until he hurts the kid. Seems like it was intentional suicide by cop, but there's no real way of knowing I guess unless there's audio tapes along with the video. Either way, as much as I dislike cops they did the right thing in this instance.


Tenga: He should have just shot the knife out of his hand.


So 68 comments until someone made the attempt.

Not as bad as I thought it would be.

Did the cop say, "Play time's over."?

The_Philosopher_King: FrancoFile: /Old Man Jack Holloway relights his pipe, smiles, and nods.

I also vote for suicide by cop.

Or he was just crazy. Can't anyone just be crazy anymore?

Tenga: He should have just shot the knife out of his hand.


FTA: They negotiated for more than 30 minutes with the suspect, Sammie Wallace, who continued to hold a knife to the toddler's neck


I'm gonna go with "That's a really bad idea".
 
2013-07-03 04:53:31 PM  
Sounds like suicide by cop.  One of the most selfish and shiatty ways to off yourself.  Go find a tall building, arsehole.
