So you'd shoot towards the baby just because you think the phone in the guys pocket might be a gun?

No, I would let him take it back into the house and let him do god knows what to it...

If they had to lay siege to that house, it would be much more dangerous to the baby, and officers. I don't know, maybe in the UK you have a crime free paradise where nothing like this ever happens, so you can't figure out why someone would have to make a split second decision.
In the US they are trained to shoot people before they get shot themselves. They aren't going to stand around yelling for hours. And in that country I don't blame them.

Maybe a better outcome could have been achieved, who knows? But I think this one was acceptable due to the circumstances.

Seems like very drastic action when they didn't know for sure if he had a gun or not. Surely police should be better equipped than most to ascertain whether somebody is armed or not. If they're really that unsure, why not shoot him in the leg or something, rush him, and then keep the child safe and the guy alive.

He might have a gun?
gooseberry fool! Kill him! Ask questions later, who cares if we're wrong, dammit!

Wounding someone who is aggressive, carrying a child and might have a gun, could be dangerous.
But it could very well have been a better option. However, in that split second , you won't have time to figure out all those options.
Plus, didn't it say he held the baby down away from his head? Might be more risky shooting his body.

And I watched Bowling for Columbine lst night on Netflix, so this doesn't surprise me in the slightest (still strawberry floated up though).

Best of luck with the US of A Alvin, might want to take advantage of their 2nd ammendment ;)

The right to nail fat chicks?

America is full of them. Is that why you are going?

You'd think that they'd have to be sure he had a weapon first before shooting. Rather than "hey, there's something in his pocket, shoot to kill!"

Makes me think of Fox News claim that Norway isn't a democracy because the police don't carry guns.

Something that was to do with keeping a loaded gun in their house at all times was a constitutional right.

Ah. Well, maybe... if I'm any good at shooting it.

The US should have nationwide rioting and looting to send a strong message to the government about how they feel.

Because, that's how it's done, right?

There's no reticule in the middle of my vision though, nor am I equipped with a Pip-Boy with VATs.
