A man who burst into an Upper Hutt house had a cache of weapons, including a machine pistol. He surrendered to armed police yesterday after officers threw rocks at the house, ending a two-hour standoff that forced shoppers to remain in a nearby supermarket.
I had to read that twice. Police officers threw rocks at his house?
Mr Hill said rocks were thrown through a door and two windows to coax the man out of the house. “That tactic worked perfectly.”
Guys, I’m glad it worked, and I’m glad no-one was shot by the perp, but seriously, does “Throw some rocks at ‘im!” actually qualify, as such, as a “Tactic”?
Does the SAS have access to this tactic?
Does Delta Force?
Inquiring minds need to know!
