Police are now trained to shoot until the threat is over. Too many of them have
died or been seriously injured by assailants who continued to attack after the
so called "double tap" (firing two shots and then re-assessing the
Suicide by Cop. I had a friend attempt this in Boise Idaho several years
ago. Maybe that was his intent, maybe not but he got shot about 20
times.It turned his life around. I hope it does this time too.
