The topic title is well chosen.
The guy has a weapon pointed at him, and gets constant detailed instructions what to do and not to under threats of getting shot, which he even if drunk has understood and is scared as hell, doesn´t always know what to do, feet crossed, hands here, hands there, fingers interlaced, do this and that yell and yell harder still or else …… and so forth.
This goes on for fairly long, with the woman in the meantime being secured, also with great yelling and detailed instructions, but she and her captour make it at least. The chance of doing something wrong is immense after such a long standoff. The other guy after 3-4 minutes just does something wrong, and the cop, who has had his finger on or near the trigger for that time or longer, just goes nuts, or as DK said mayby he wanted to shoot him anyway. Of course the police don´t know if there are further people armed in the room, but the cop doesn´t seem to bother much about the doorway, and mainly has the guy under his sights. Crazy.
You guys figure out what should be done differently; it´s not something I get paid for, I don´t know, but it sure looked like murder to me.
