    Good point. Gabe has said that good outcomes have supported bad tactics in the past. Thanks for the reminder!

I think the biggest gap was trying to balance the need to address the shooter (initial officer) with the uncovered driver-suspect on the ground. Hard call. Proactive anchor shot? Probably not doable in the LEO roll.
