I am glad he did what he did because he could have killed that little girl
in a matter of seconds i the police office did not react as quick and smooth as he did.

Freaking unbelievable!!! Officer made a decision and saved that baby. Great job to the officer and everyone else for getting his back on it

There is a time for talking and a time for action. Thank God the good Captain knew that moment for the little girl's sake.

Give that captain a new raise,equipment everybody can learn from him on this brave day for this young girl and The captain saving the tax payer money putting this punk to sleep.

Job Well done! It was pragmatic, instant and effective. Only the CA Wussies and Wimps will find fault using a host of "maybe's and what iffs."

Sounds like a case of 'suicide by cop'. Good to hear it was handled appropriately.

So glad the little girl did not get hurt, but what about her poor little ears? If the cop shot him at point blank, it would have been SO loud.

Bonnie - it was either point blank or risk hitting the little girl if the guy moved. Because of his actions, her poor little ears are still attached to her poor little unscathed head.

Video not loading after multiple attempts. The only correct decision worked. Praise God and Captain David Huff for courage, decisiveness, and effectiveness, and of course the result: safe baby. I have a daughter.

Nice to see a dangerous criminal's "rights " be waived over the innocent for a Change. Too many kids are dying these days by the callous hands of idiots.
this officer did his job. He had to make a judgment call. He is a hero. I know the girl will be ok. I give the lord and him praise. Wish I could shake his hand.

Capt. Crunch @ 7/2/2013 10:16 AM

Thank God, that the little girl is ok and thanks to the officer that saved her life, he is a hero.

Bonnie are you that fucking stupid? She's alive. I'm sure she would rather have a little hearing lose thean be dead. Yeah I said it. You're stupid Bonnie. It's only what everyone else was thinking.

He made the right decision, and a little girl is alive and well because of it. Thank you, Officer.
