Hell of a lot of gunshots. Like 20 seconds worth of loud cracks and bangs. I really hope no hostages are injured.

Aaaah, the simplest solution. Kill that dog as it can't be seen as a human.
Stammtischreden, that is the German word for it. It is the way for people who have to deal with a ever becoming more complex world, which their mind cannot comprehend much further. Their solutions are the most simple "kill and have a bastard less on the streets!", the most drastic "to warn the others" and they are absolutely sure that they themselves will never be on the wrong side of a lawful gun because they are so rightous.
In fact they are so very wrong.
Taking a humans live by law doesn't make the streets more safe. If you don't believe statistics and studies, take a look at countries which still use the death penalty. Do they seem so much more safer than, let's say, the Swiss. Or Shanghai. Those must have the death penalty in use, too?
It is a morale dilemma: a person in prison can't do anything bad to society. But what afterwards? Therefore, taking the person out of misery by death is the solution?
Nope. It doesn't solve anything. Still murders on the streets. It didn't work and there is no perspective that it will ever do so.
