    1. Excessive and disproportionate use of force!!n Why couldn’t they use a robot-delivered tear gas canister instead of a lethal bomb to incapacitate him?

    2. To #5- Are you naive, or what? Texas is an active death penalty state. If the suspect was captured, he surely would have faced the death penalty. Therefore, he had nothing to lose, by not giving up.
