However all we have is the non-audio tape, so that is all we can comment on, and for whatever reason nobody really wants to talk about tactics right/wrong, but on just some how justifying a shooting none of us will ever have all the facts to.
There's your problem; you can't talk tactics validly from just a video with no audio and without other info. Any talk about what he did or didn't do is pure speculation. All we DO KNOW is that he was justified in the shooting from the investigation done by the DA and police. Trying to armchair quarterback the shooting and say what he did right or wring from just that video is no bueno.
Well that is the entire topic of this thread, and it sure looks like I am not the only one commenting on his tactics now, I see several more joining in. Some even seem to be taking my side on some of the tactics.
There is no incident in life where all the facts are known. WWII history books were written for 25 years about how we won the war. People got PhDs for the work, Books, Movies you name it were done. Then in 1972 a relatively unknown F.W. Winterbotham (and others) wrote a book showing for 25 years, everyone was wrong about how we won WWII. EVERYONE.
So let's get back to the tactics based on the facts we know, we can revisit when new facts come to light. There is a whole lot more info on this if anyone wants to google it that answers some questions asked in this thread.
