"At some point those negotiations failed and unfortunately the SWAT team was involved in a shooting, and the subject is now deceased," he said.

So sad that people are now called subjects . Kind of a dehumanising statement . I guess you cant say ,we killed a person .
in a moment when history took a sharp turn, Jefferson sought quite methodically to expunge the word (Subjects), to wipe it out of existence and write over it. Many words were crossed out and replaced in the draft, but only one was obliterated. Over the smudge, Jefferson then wrote the word "citizens." No longer subjects to the crown, the colonists became something different: a people whose allegiance was to one another, not to a faraway monarch.

So you did see the part where they tried to negotiate for 7 hours, and yet you still mention shooting first and asked questions later.
Clearly that's not the case.
