Shootout in Dallas

Early this morning, a deranged man starting shoot at the Dallas police HQ and planting bombs. No one was wounded. The police chased him down, cornered him in a parking lot, shot out his engine and then, when it appeared he wouldn’t back down, shot him.

I’ve criticized the police in this space for using SWAT tactics in domestic situations. This is one instance where it was absolutely required. As far as I can tell, they handled a dangerous situation well and no innocent bystanders were hurt. So … well done, Dallas PD.

    I don’t know much about the Dallas PD, but I think it’s fair to say that they are far more competent than the LAPD was during the Christopher Dorner manhunt.

    Perhaps some of the blowback from cops trying to be The Punisher has finally started to sink in.  That and you generally don’t hear about Dallas cops being routinely abusive of everyone’s rights.
