I like how the TFP uses police lingo in their headlines. It's like watching COPS.

More taxpayer money wasted on a wannabe cop killer. Pity he didn't die in his attempt to escape.

Double-tap center of mass then, if still attacking, one [or more] to either the head or the groin [femoral artery], your choice.

Kudos to the officer. Great job.
