Delay in Orlando police response to massacre examined - CBS News

As the largest mass shooting in modern U.S. history began to unfold, an off-duty police officer working at a gay nightclub exchanged gunfire with the suspect. But three hours passed before one of the nation's most revered SWAT teams stormed the building and brought the attack in Orlando that left 49 people and the gunman dead to an end.

The decision by law enforcement to hold off on entering the club - where more than 100 people were shot, 49 of them killed - immediately raised questions among experts in police tactics. They said the lessons learned from other mass shootings show that officers must get inside swiftly - even at great risk - to stop the threat and save lives.

We need to ask the question:
What do we expect our police officers to do when they are faced with a deadly threat, but victims are being systematically murdered?

Negotiation can sometimes work but I expect them to suit up and engage if people are actively being killed.
