    Very, very tragic. RIP, brother. I wondered if he followed policy, or even if they HAD a policy, about dealing with EDPs and waiting for LEOs, if this would have happened. A stupid and needless way to die.

    We call them ECHO calls and stage until L.E. secures the scene. Looks like protocols may have been broken.
