I haven’t looked at these specific links yet, but I just wanted to add that I think we would be a whole lot better off if we had captured the couple in San Bernadino alive rather than dead. I think we need to develop protocols that prioritize taking criminals and shooters in general, and terrorists in particular alive if AT ALL possible, which certainly does not currently seem to be the goal – as long as civilians are or can be reasonably gotten out of immediate harms way.
