As I noted in a related thread, I think the people who approve of this action have forgotten Waco. Similarly, I had forgotten MOVE, so thanks to the poster who reminded us of that.

The thing is, while I have no problem with the police using lethal force against Dorner, the force they employed was just not smart.

What if there had been an unknown hostage in the cabin? What if the fire had grown out of control?

They could easily have set a perimeter, and waited Dorner out. If he had come out shooting, and they had killed him, I would have no complaint whatsoever.

But if we give even tacit approval to this incident, then we only encourage the next Waco or MOVE scenario.
