I dont think what he stole mattered. What mattered was that he was armed and creating a standoff. He could have killed that kid or anyone else. The cops didnt know if he was planning on going out in a blaze of glory, death by cop, taking others with him or what. I can't really say I blame them even if the home was obviously overkill. But the city should have stepped up and paid for the damages. The insurance reportedly paid for it so maybe the logic is that it should have been the insurance company suing the city to be reimbursed, and they clearly weren't. Which I guess gives me my answer as to why the city only agreed to pay the insurance deductable.
