OMG seriously? They did what they had to do to protect themselves period! There is no cover up, this is not an area 51 goverment conspiracy....geez! I can't believe some of the comments here. If you were a cop and you responded to a scene and were shot at, then didn't shoot back then your a weak person who doesn't need to be a cop! Good job guys!!

There again the Sheriff has to rely on somebody else to get the job done.
When the cops responded to this call they were already aware that the armed woman was in a volitile state of mind. As I was not there I won't judge their actions but would like to know if we in Bay County have a trained hostage/stituation negotiator? I sure she probably was not able to calm down because she got shot but rubber bullets would have done the job just as well. As the local media only give us the minimum amount of information on local news storys It is hard to understand why things turn out the way they do. All in all it's a sad story, most people who threaten susicide are actually calling out for help.

Yeah I agree with you to a certain extent but, wether she was crying out for help or not she put those officers in a situation that there was probably no other choice you know? I don't know just my thoughts.... I'm sure they didn't want to have to do it but it sounds like it was a bad situation from the start.

Did you even read the article? She was shot with rubber bullets that had little effect on her. She still was able to point a gun at the officers AFTER being shot with the rubber bullets.

Meh, you are correct, but these were not the regular rubber bullets. These were 40mm rounds. DowJones, if 40mm rounds did not stop her then the swat team had no other choice but the use deadly force.

I totally agree and would never question the choices made by an officer when it is their life on the line, I simply was inquiring if our police departments had other solutions or methods to subdued a person or defuse a situation where gunfire was not an option. If she had a hostage or was in a public area things would have been more complicated and we as a city should have every available resource to combat any situation that can arise, this protects our officers and us.
