In the aftermath of the horror in Dallas, so many questions remain. The magnitude of sadness and despair may be too raw to ask them, but I wonder:
1. If the robot bomb failed to kill the shooter, what was the next option? A bigger bomb?
2. Does the use of the bomb mean that future gunmen will be inspired or encouraged to take hostages, for their own protection against the bomb tactic?
3. How might a judge rule on the civil rights questions of the killing with extreme prejudice of an alleged criminal without due process?
4. If law enforcement is supposed to "Protect and Serve", how do military style tactics fulfill that mission?
