If someone’s aiming a gun at you, you are in deep, deep trouble. You have exactly three options, attack (shooting first might work), retreat (dive for cover if cover be had) or face the consequences of your inactivity (up to and including death). In this case, Sgt. James Kellerman paid for his strategic blindness with actual blindness; the perp’s shotgun blast took out his right eye. In this report at click2houston.com, the news person repeats Kellerman’s claim that he didn’t shoot first to protect whoever might habe been behind the shotgun-wielding madman. Which tells us he that had no confidence in his own shooting abilities. It also highlights the fact that many members of the police don’t understand the ways of the warrior. And that’s worrying.
