No I Am NOT OK With That

Lighting the building a SUSPECT has barricaded himself into on fire is not an appropriate law enforcement response.

Surround and contain and starve him out, but you don't light the place on fire.

It was CONVENIENT to let him burn.  Officer safety, AGAIN.  Can't send a SWAT team in, because he's dangerous.

Can't just wait him out because WE HAVE TO SOMETHING, AND BURNING HIM ALIVE IS SOMETHING, WE MUST DO THAT!

I am disgusted by the pro rights people who are cheering the Waco-like conclusion to this story.

If we discard our rights because it's expeditious to officer safety, they are not rights at all.

So many of you are so damn familiar with the 1st and 2nd amendments you've seem to have forgotten the 6th and 8th.  For shame.

For shame.

Update!

It's nice to see I am not alone.

  2. More like "We can't just wait him out because we want him DEAD! We want his family DEAD! We want his house burnt to the GROUND! We want to go there in the middle of the night and piss on his ASHES!"

    Seriously, I have zero faith that any of the LEO's involved in this had any intention of taking him alive if he had tried to surrender, and I guess the ones in charge decided to not even give him the chance once they found him. All they were waiting for was a plausible chance to call it an "accident".
