    Or at least enough to avoid those extra zeros. Sometimes you have to take what you can get.
    It has already made alerrt mandatory every 2 years in texas and many departments have placed shields and breaching tools in patrol units

    I appreciate that, Blues. Just pointing out that hindsight is 20/20, that real life isn't always picture perfect like the movies and TV, and that a negative outcome that had a kid take a police bullet would've been met with a whole different set of torches and pitchforks, rather than an understanding that shit happens.

    (2) the actor reasonably believes that his intervention is immediately necessary to protect the third person.

    And... Texas Penal Code Sec. 9.05. RECKLESS INJURY OF INNOCENT THIRD PERSON. Even though an actor is justified under this chapter in threatening or using force or deadly force against another, if in doing so he also recklessly injures or kills an innocent third person, the justification afforded by this chapter is unavailable in a prosecution for the reckless injury or killing of the innocent third person.
