well.. they were sneaking up on his truck trying to ambush him... and he ambushed them first. i’d say bad intel on their part.
of course, bad tactical decision on his part. then again, if he possessed clear thinking it’d be unlikely they’d be after him in the first place
he should have used the opportunity to escape. there is no winning a defensive battle with limited ammo, no backup, severely outnumbered, and all escape routes cut off
4 miles from home....
Well he wasn’t a tactical genius, thats why he committed armed robbery instead of becoming a banker or a politician to rob people.
