Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

At what point does a desire for justice become a desire for vengeance?
They heard a shot and THEN the building erupted in fire...but no report of shots after the explosion.
So either he shot at a gas-fueled appliances and was killed immediately in the explosion, or the fire erupted spontaneously because of the tear gas being ignited by the gun shot which he aimed at himself....
But then I find this:
TEAR GAS GRENADES | CAMEO Chemicals | NOAAFire Hazard
Excerpt from GUIDE 159 [Substances (Irritating)]:
Some of these materials may burn, but none ignite readily. Containers may explode when heated. (ERG, 2012)
...so it doesn't make a lot of sense, really. Either he blew himself up (painful way to go) intentionally, he shot himself and a random explosion of fire somehow occurred, or he shot a canister not knowing it would (maybe) erupt (but then where'd the flames come from, unless the canister was near a gas appliance), or there wasn't a canister at all and there's no easy explanation for how a shot preceded a mystery fire, 'cause the police said they "pumped in" tear gas.
I'll wait 'til the details are more clear.

Burning him alive is bad if it's used in retribution. That's not the job of police. It is thier job to take out threats and IF! the fire was at least semi-intentional because they didn't want to send in police officers after a guy that stated he wanted to kill police officers I don't see the problem.
If he wanted to exercise his rights to a fair trial he could of turned himself in.

If they were "tearing through walls" as the article in the OP indicates, who knows what really started the fire at this point. I cannot imagine that anyone would have reasonably believed that this would not have ended this way.
