I guess Albequerque is not alone in having to use deadly force. Why do suspects try to run so much in today's world of technology with all the cameras on the streets and better communications. They need to give up not shoot at officers that are trained to neutralize a threat when it shoots bullets indiscriminately at officers that could technically hit civilians.

The Bad Guys get the same adrenalin dump we do once that siren comes on, so fight and flight mode is automatic for the suspects too. Ever see an officer at the end of a chase? No matter how long or short the chase, they are pumped. I know from experience, I could never hold a pen until I took a lot of deep breaths after the suspect was secured. The adrenalin takes a while to wind down in us too. We are only human. We can't help it we are all flawed and imperfect beings. All of us can only do the best we can do under those circumstances and nothing more. There are a lot of runners that do get away so the bad guys know it's a gamble too.
