The man was obviously so disturbed that he preferred death by cop rather than seeking help. The officers' showed great restraint until they were required to stop the threat with deadly force. I'm glad the officers weren't injured in this deadly confrontation.
I can understand it in this political climate, but it was horribly poor decision making:

1) retreated until the "backstop" was responding Fire & EMS personnel
2) did not advance and incapacitate, once the perpetrator had been shot
3) by a mindset of "render aid," personnel involved created a crossfire box, in which there were no clear fields of fire
:iagree: I kept thinking while watching "how far are you going to retreat before stopping this guy?" The first officer who fired is very lucky the second officer did not hit him while shooting the suspect as he wrestled with the first officer.
Would be interesting to know where the suspect was hit by the first officer's shots and how many hits there were.
