    It could have ended better, but at least it didn't end tragically.

    That distance is just a guide. Stay alert, stay safe, people.

    Also a good reminder not to always rush in after a pursuit. If the officers on the driver side would have bum rushed the car, they could have got injured pretty bad before being able to even get off a few shots. The one officer who did rush in on the passenger side put himself in some potential cross fire and probably regretted his choice when he heard the shots going off.

    At that distance your reaction time time is measured in fractions of a second. If you are at all reluctant to shoot you are likely going to get hurt.

    Did they administer a post-death tasing as the last seconds of the video suggest?

    Good shoot.

    Thankfully, the good guy lived to fight another day.
    Thankfully, this is a case of police officers dealing with a fleeing thug. Thankfully, we have LEOs who are willing to do this dangerous work.
    Thankfully this wasn't an innocent civilian being attacked.

    I guess we do have a lot to be thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving to all.
