    Don, I have seen that one on tv before. It never gets old seeing an excellent shot made!! I still can't believe he didn't lose at least one finger! On the show I saw it on, he talked to the officer that made the shot and commented something about a dang fine shot!

    I've seen it before, and I watch virtually no TV. (But I do spend WAY too much time on YouTube.) Cool video.

    Ive seen it and every time it ticks me off.
    Its been on REal TV a number of times.

    why on earth would 50 police officers risk their lives when a guy clearly wants to off himself.
    sniper had an exceptional shot and Id bet today hed even say maybe a little lucky.
    Next time I hope they dont give the guy enough time to shoot or kill a police officer, or maybe hell miss the officers and hit some poor innocent person who is 3 blocks away.

    Holy cow Allen, what if it were your family member there distraught over a kid of his that died? I can't remember what the situation was exactly, but he was distraught over something. Suicide by cop was a big problem when I was with the Sheriff's department years ago. I realize cops and bystanders (why do people want to stand and watch something like that in person?) were at risk, the cops because it is their job, the bystanders well because they were nosey! It is a good video of good cops doing an excellent job not lowering their standards or morals. Having been under cover of vehicles and obstacles with my gun drawn, I realize the adrenalin rush and really respect the guy that made the shot as well as the other guys that held thier fire waiting for a non lethal shot.
    Now if the shooter ever says he was actually aiming for a headshot, then,,,,,,,,,,, , , , .
    Have a great day everyone!!!
