    Perhaps I should have worded it better. I'm sure if it came to that, making the decision to shoot would easy. What I really meant was the officer having to deal with. I'm sure even if justified, knowing you've killed someone cannot be easy.

    True but that has to happen first.

    I doubt there's any rush to put out the fire, at least I hope there isn't. No more good people need to die over this p.o.s.

    I know that asphyxiation is usually the COD in fires, and I know that a gunshot was heard. I hope and pray; however, that he burns to death!

    I'm at a bar for happy hour and they have it on FOX, the bartender asked why the firetrucks weren't there yet. I said the roadblocks are slowing them down :tbo: She didn't get it.

    SCBA does not protect you from heat - and a house fire gets HOT.

    I would not count out any option, if there was a possibility of a root / storm cellar in that cabin I'm keeping a perimeter till we clear everything ..

    Too soon? Not soon enough, if you ask me.

    People quickly forget that a month ago, two volunteer firefighters were killed responding to a fire. Officers were fired on at another fire.

    I'd be cautious letting my firefighters in as well.

    They warn you about keeping full tanks in a hot car, they can't handle pressure increase from tank heating up significantly. I imagine its even hotter than that in a house fire...

    I mean, flashbangs and gas grenades have been known to cause fires. I'm not implying it was intentional, but to immediately dismiss the idea that a flash bang or gas grenade could have lit the house off is a bit premature, don't you think?

    The US Forest Service has access to 106mm Recoiless Rifles.

    I couldn't think of a better use for them than right now.

    I'd say that a fire from CS inserted to the house is a distinct possibility.

    This budges my sympathy meter not at all.

    I rarely do the happy dance at the demise of others (I try to limit myself to 1-2x a day).

    In this instance if/when Dorner is +ively IDed I will smile inwardly and do a week's worth of the jig.

    ...and condolences to the family of that fallen officer. Hopefully, this is the beginning of the end.
