Default Armed Crossbow Man Dies after Stand of with Police..

Hi everyone,

I saw this interesting article in the current news about police having a stand off with a man armed with a crossbow.

Article Site: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-15482861

Now the most interesting thing that I found out about this was that the Man with the crossbow was shot and killed while coking his crossbow. Now to me this doesn't make sense because if I see the police coming, first thing ill do is not be anywhere close a weapon of any kind and second everyone knows that it takes way longer to load a crossbow then for an officer to load up his gun and shoot you. I just believe that the man made a wrong decision that cost him his life. Also this makes us crossbow hunters look bad because crossbows are meant to hunt animals not to harm people. Well just thought it was something that I could share with you guys.

Rule one: Never, ever, bring a crossbow to a gun fight.
Corollary: You can't fix stupid.
