Cocoa Taplin is a fantastic name.

That's what I've learned from this.

Another lesson is don't confront a SWAT team while you're carrying/brandishing a weapon, of any kind.

WAIT, TWO THINGS...

1. WHAT IDIOT DECIDED TO NAME THEIR PARA-MILITARY SQUAD AFTER AN EXPLOSIVE COMPOIND?

2. THE GUY WHO GOT SHOT WAS ESSENTIALLY UNRELATED TO THE MATTER AT HAND, BUT HE JUST DECIDED TO SHOOT AT THE PARA-MILITARY SQUAD? I DON'T GET IT.

According to the O, he thought one of the officers was a prowler, got his gun and went outside to chase him off. In all the pix I have seen of SWAT, or TNT members, they all have POLICE in big white letters on their jackets or coats. Or asm I wrong about this.
