Beyond belief.

Is his age supposed to make him any less dangerous when he has a gun?

slayer199: Is his age supposed to make him any less dangerous when he has a gun?


  This.  Age means nothing when they are holding a gun.

When you are 107 I guess you don't have much to fear.
 
2013-09-08 08:59:18 AM  
What a waste of a life. All that lost potential.
 
2013-09-08 09:09:57 AM  
When 107 you are, this badass you will not be:


After unsuccessful negotiations, officers slipped gas into the room through a window, he said, and Isadore fired rounds at them.

The officers broke the bedroom door and hurled in a distraction device, and Isadore fired at them again, according to the spokesman's statement.

So a gun really IS an equalizer then.  Who knew?
 
2013-09-08 09:13:50 AM  
Could they have not allowed physiology to run its course and just waited him out for another hour or two?
 
2013-09-08 09:13:54 AM  
At his age, he really should have known better.
 
2013-09-08 09:14:36 AM  
Damn, that old guy was hardcore. And yeah, if you've got the faculties to pop off shots you're still a danger regardless of age.

I was going to make a snarky comment about the guys with the bullet-proof vests but I don't want to end up on some 'list'.

Just wait til his nap time and then go in. SWAT teams are so impatient.
 
2013-09-08 09:19:38 AM  
I realize they have a busy schedule of killing dogs and working their way down the list of world's oldest cranky old men, but was there some reason they had to go in?  Like at all?  He's there, no one else is, absolutely worst case scenario it's pretty much prison with a comfier set of blankets.
 
2013-09-08 09:19:53 AM  
So the fact that he was bound to fall asleep in a couple of hours was lost on the storm troopers.

Sad.
 
2013-09-08 09:20:19 AM  
He's probably been exposed to a lot of anti-government rhetoric. He's right in the center of the AM radio/FOX News demographic.
 
2013-09-08 09:21:02 AM  
Heroic cops strike again.
 
2013-09-08 09:21:29 AM  
Wouldn't this be easier.

All that fancy swat equipment - tanks - helicopter gunships. They don't have something that can deliver a hot turkey dinner & glass of warm milk? Pop a balloon behind his back? Just be small enough to drive through the font door? Cut off his Matlock?

How long could this guy stay awake anyway? Wait a few hours,
 
2013-09-08 09:24:48 AM  
So that's what happens when you won't get off their lawns...

FTFA: "It was not clear what role the suspect had in the aggravated assaults or what they were.
When officers approached a bedroom where Isadore was hiding, he fired through the door, authorities said
."

So, for all the cops knew, he could have been the VICTIM. And then, hearing the cops outside his door, and thinking they were the perps coming back to hurt him more, he shot at them. Geez.

What's he gonna do? Run?
 
2013-09-08 09:27:50 AM  
I wonder if he crapped his pants in fear? I guess it depends.

This is my first thought as well.
 
2013-09-08 09:34:28 AM  
Slightly Off Topic: Are cop negotiators allowed to tell you to just shoot yourself?

Suspect: You'll never take me alive, coppers!

Officer B. Rodriguez: Why don't you just kill yourself, then? It's much less paperwork for us. Well? Let's go all already!

at 107 you probably want hear to well

The SWAT team waits for no one.  Shoot first, ask questions later.  All citizens failing to comply will be annihilated.
 
2013-09-08 09:42:55 AM  
107?

That's like chopping down an old redwood tree cause it was in your way.

It sounds like the old man was a piss poor shot.
 
2013-09-08 09:53:00 AM  
I'd suggest just waiting for him to die, but at 107 I bet he'd forgotten how.

slayer199: Is his age supposed to make him any less dangerous when he has a gun?


I'd say his age made him a bit less dangerous.  And the fact that he was holed up in a room by himself.
 
2013-09-08 10:03:13 AM  
FTFA: It's unclear what distraction device was used.

Did they jiggle their keys?

I see what you did there

slayer199: Is his age supposed to make him any less dangerous when he has a gun?


Yes, the trick is waiting for nap time. If only they had some sort of surveillance to tell them when he nods off.
 
2013-09-08 10:07:23 AM  
That's a long time to wait for suicide by cop. Dude had patience.

Also, stop being such a pussy or just change the user name away from slayer. This whole I was a scared shiatless slayer fan before it was cool to be a scared shiatless slayer fan hipster bull shiat is annoying.

That's for baby gunmen.
 
2013-09-08 10:13:49 AM  
I can understand why cops are all trigger happy. Their cush union contracts give them massive time off with pay for the mental trauma they suffer as a result.
 
2013-09-08 10:14:32 AM  
Why did they have to do anything but keep him contained?

I mean there were no hostages so they just should of waited him out.

More overtime pay too.

Um, if he's 107 years old and living in Pine Bluff, there's a good chance he's the wrong color to be in the FOX News demographic.

what's the fun in that
 
2013-09-08 10:23:05 AM  
And afterwards the SWAT team high fived and sucked each other off.
