    Kudos to your lawyer enforcement officers!!! I was beginning to wonder of law enforcement training icluded only ” shoot to kill” these days, as it seems like all persons encountering conflict with officers are shot and killed….not just disabled.
    Maybe more departments should learn your tactics. Sometimes, shoot to kill is necessary, but I think many cases would end better and police could be better understood if they disabled suspects and then proved their point!!!!
