Corrupted by watching too many James Cagney movies in his youth
107 year old man killed after shooting it out with a SWAT team. "You dirty rats will never take me alive!"
UPDATE: they used to have a way to deal with standoffs in Tucson, at least over the summer. Cut the electrical power and the water. Pretty soon the guy is inside, 105-110 degrees, no air conditioning, air not moving, and no water. Pretty soon he's down to a choice between drinking from the toilet bowl or surrendering, and chooses the latter, since the jail at least has AC.
