33. I'm having deja vu of Linda Lawrence
At Firearms Academy of Seattle, Marty showed the "Ultimate Survivors" video by Calibre Press. The Steve Chaney incident is the one that sticks in the head of most people.

Short story: 1977, Baton Rouge Police Officers Steve Chaney and Linda Lawrence respond to a disturbance call. The BG they encounter attacks them. BG tries to get Chaney's gun. Lawrence shoots BG once. BG grabs Lawrence's gun and kills her with it. Chaney and BG continues struggling and fighting, and Chaney ultimately kills the BG with about 10 or 11 shots, including one to the head.

The sad lesson learned was that a gun is not a talisman. If you NEED to shoot someone to stay alive, you shoot until the threat subsides. That appears to the be the lesson in Cheatham County today. The person with the gun didn't shoot until the threat ended.
