- Granite State of Mind
That mentality assumes there will be a gunfight, and picking the better location.The mentality is keeping the problem in a smaller secure location as opposed to a gunfight in the grocery store parking lot.
The other mentality hopes to avoid a gunfight by picking the time and place of the initial contact, and using tactics (not TACTICOOL, but actual tactics) that minimize chances of escalation.
Somedood coming out of the grocery store and loading them into his trunk presents a perfect opportunity to catch him off guard. Not by a vanload of agents screeching to a stop and jumping out with raid jackets and guns drawn, but by deception and subterfuge. Use your imagination here, and I'm sure you can imagine any number of ways that a suspect could be distracted, especially one accused to being a chomo.
