Are you really going to push someone to the floor and shoot them FIVE times if they're a suspected suicide bomber? F***ing risky, wouldn't you say? This is more like execution-style...

Let me just point out that with suicide bombers you definitely want to shoot to kill, so he can't push the button. If anything, I'd criticize them for not emptying the chamber.
