This is beyond absurd. Not in ANY situation other than all out war or CLEAR HOMICIDE should 50+ rounds be fired at one person. And don't give me the "oh, their job is tough" krap. This situation called for a negotiator from the start and at no time was there any effort on the part of the police to call one in. Sunday morning, NO SUPERVISORS on duty, rookie cops, suicidal man w/gun to self and now an audio of one of the female officers calling for a HIGH FIVE (audio time 3:56) right after the first barrage of fire. The number of shot fired is disturbing for many reasons. One of which was the risk neighbors in surrounding homes experienced. Bottom line, these officers were not experienced enough to handle the situation and their lack of awareness of that fact is very disturbing. You don't want these officers thrown under the bus? Then they should followed basic protocol and called in someone trained to handle this situation. Mr. Heyward wanted to hurt himself, instead he lost to a bunch of gung ho cowboy/cowgirls that ran in with guns blazing and were cold hearted enough to laugh about the situation during that last few min. of the audio. Sick. CPD has skrewed the pooch and these officers are now targets of lawsuits as they should be...
