    More people are taking the hard way out.

    The first guy had already killed people, therefore he was a threat to others and the cops. He had nothing to lose at that point.

    "When police tried to negotiate with Lopez to come out of the house, he threatened to kill officers. "When you guys do come in I'm going to stab you," he said, according to the report."

    A line from "The Untouchables" by Sean Connery says; "Never bring a knife to a gun fight." Those are words to consider.

    But, I don't understand how the cops can refuse to give a statement. Anyone know how they can refuse???
