  • Head shot ends stand off

    Them Brazilians don't mess around:



    I would hope an LEO here who made the choice it had to be done wouldn't be second guessed with "but he only had a knife" and other dribble, but we know how that goes.

    This was a standoff in Toronto almost 7 years ago. This crazy man went on a rampage in the Toronto Pathway trying to kill his wife she got away from him but took a hostage a girl on her way to University. This day ended with a .308 to his head from a TPS sniper.

      I thought they would have blasted him sooner when the woman was on her knees and he was making the stabbing motions.

              The biggest thing I noticed was all the cheers coming from the crowd... if that happened here, there would have been nothing but cries of "they could have wounded him!"

                      Saving the life of a hostage is popular. Saving your own is not.

                        If that ain't the truth in the USA, I don't know what is.

                          Did the hostage taker began to sink the knife in the hostages eye? Ouch!

                            It is quite simple and not complex. If you take a innocent person at knife point and threaten to kill them, you deserve a FMJ through the head. As a hard working, tax paying citizen, I applaud the swift and decisive action took. Bravo.

                              Kind of a radical view, but I, feel that any emphasis on preserving the life of a hostage taker should be eliminated from the situation. Period. Thier life should be forfiet and not part of any rescue scenario.

                              I also feel that in situations like the above, that no oversight by anyone that is not a credentialed LEO should occur. No Grand Jury, no civilian oversight at all. It need to be re-emphasized that sometimes killing people is what we do in order to preserve the peace.
