Wonder how many cops now days would have went for their Tazer first. .
I guess that would have been an OK move BEFORE the M1-Carbine came out. But once that guy pulled the rifle.
The officer did seem very flustered and nervous (don't really blame him given the situation). But I wonder how much that contributed to his inability to hit the given that the officer did fire first.
Easy to hit a man sized target at 50 yards at the range. Another thing to hit someone at 20 yards when the guy is waving an M1-Carb around, trying to kill you.
