Ok so we have armed robbery with a firearm and we terminated the threat. This is why WE are the POLICE! To protect everybody including ourselves from the criminal element!

Good job to the Sgt. glad to hear he's ok. Too bad the shitbag didn't expire. But I doubt that'll stop him. He'll get another oppurtunity.
