Sounds like suicide by cop.

If that's the case, too bad the guy (and others who choose this method) don't realize how traumatic an experience this can be for the LEO.

Im surprised that most the poeple on here arent upset that the cops got shot first. It seems like in Topeka its only ok for cop to shoot only after they have been shot themselves...Even then Im sure someone would complain about "excessive force".

Sorry, I meant to say "upset that the cops did not get shot first".

I can understand whacking the duplicates of the first post, but how did it deserve to get entirely removed?
