More from the "too many criminals in this town" category. In this story, a man with a sexual assault of a child warrant ran from Houston police. He ran over some spike strips and eventually crashed out. The crook pointed a gun at the officers as he ran away. This tells me he didn't want to face the charge he had on him and was trying to goad the police into killing him. It was learned after the whole ordeal the pistol was actually a BB gun. Of course at the moment he pointed it at the officers they had no idea, they thought it was a real gun. I imagine it's only a matter of time until the news outlets go seeking out friends and family of the crook to criticize the officers defending themselves.
