    You shouldn't have any questions, I'm with you there, seems perfectly legit. It is what is is. But then why post it?

    It's like people posting a link to an article with no explination, question, or even a hint at what it is.

    That leaves the rest of us scratching our heads wondering what your point is. If you're going to go to all the trouble of posting something it would make sense to say why you're posting it.

    For? Against? Hey look at this idiot? What would you do? Something like that.
    Sure I hear you, but I post video threads from day to day as I run across them because I like pictures more than pointless chit chat about obvious emotions or facts. And what better pictures are there, but video!?

    If I felt something was debatable I would probably include my own views, but something like this is just purely a "Wow, what was that guy thinking" type of post. If you notice, compared to a lot of forums online, this one doesn't get a lot of new threads each day ... so I'm just throwing out more data for folks to choose from. Can't be plain ole steak and potatos every night.

    We all die someday ... MOST of us don't go out in a blaze of "glory" like this, so on behalf of people "joking" about it ... sorry?

    That video has to be about a decade old. IIRC, he was a mentally disturbed individual that had barricaded himself inside his house. He came out looking for trouble, leveled a weapon at an officer and then proceeded to die of lead poisoning.

    I am not even sure what that sentence means...
    But what I meant was that if you try and go up one against a swat team, you are basically committing suicide because you have no chance.

    To me thats not suicide by cop, that's a guy looking to kill a police officer. He didn't succeed (I hope not anyway, since I have no idea why swat was there in the fist place), and got what he had coming to him.

    Don't worry Taylor13 someday you will and then you will understand, plus in a situation like that a pepperball gun would not be an appropriate choice to eliminate the threat.

    Well, it's kinda like taking....well a pepper ball gun to gun fight....


    Also, if I remember this incident correctly this was a stand off, not a warrant being served.....i.e. the cameras on scene as the events unfolded.

    Exactly, Pepper Balled.....ummmm no! If you've herd an MP5 in action once then you pretty much will always recognize that sound.

    This is an older video but a classic example of (Do not point firearms at law enforcement). This is a clean shoot, nothing more.
