The amount and quality of monday morning quarterbacking is invigorating here, to say the least. The man was a threat, the LEO saw the threat, and eliminated the threat. The shooting of legs and arms occurs mainly in John Wayne movies.

The LEO did what he is paid to do, "Protect and Defend". And he did it very well.


The rest of the story is, unfortunately, going to have to wait until the next episode unfolds itself.

I'm relatively certain the police officer who shot the man was not trying to kill him. They are trained to stop him with two quick shots to his center of mass, then observe him and if necessary take another shot at his head. The fact the man is alive is simply a lucky accident. In all probability the police officer who actually did the shooting was already in the grip of an adrenalin rush and simply missed his intended target a bit.

If you've never been under the effect of adrenalin, let me tell you it is a very, very potent chemical. When it hits you, you start to shake involuntarily and can accomplish only the most rudimentary of tasks. In a situation like the one described, and assuming the officer was having an adrenalin rush, he (or she) would have reacted as they have been trained to do and nothing else because they would not have been thinking clearly, if at all, during the actual shoot (unless they had been in a relatively large number of adrenalin rushes (caused by a shooting situation) before.

Where in the linked article is any mention of taser use or non lethal attempts or such? How did this become the discussion topic here? I read the yahoo link over three times and am not seeing the terms "taser" or "non-lethal" anywhere in TFA.

Guy walks in with grenade to a Federal Courthouse. Doesn't respond to police , gets shot. Everyone here talking about taser effectiveness and non lethal shooting effects, that aren't part of the article. The issue is the threat of the bomber in the first place, or his motivations, not whether or not cops tried to save the guy from the consequences of his own choices.

Was it a sympathizer for the defendent's "cause"? or perhaps a revenge sort of thing, did the guy have any relations to victims of any bombings by the defendant, his associates, or "cause"?

This incident just goes to show that the Tazer is not the best non-lethal means of subduing a suspect that all the police departments claim it to be. Just fire your gun, but don't go for the 9 or 10 point shot. A 4 or 5 point shot will stop most anyone, will be non-lethal and sends a much more accurate message to those considering challenging the cops.

Suspects don't need to be electrocuted until they are firmly strapped into a chair with a little metal helmet on...
A la Saturday Night Live...what you need is a good bleeding!

i for one am glad he died. everytime someone enters our courts and tries any of this bull#$%* they need to be killed on site. it will serve as a great deterant for future wanna be court massacres. it's bad enough to be sitting in court (for whatever reason the public is there) but to have to worry about your personnel safety. a fact u many never leave an american courtroom alive how rediculous.
