It’s not a happy ending until the prosecutor decides not to charge the two citizens.

“Cocking” does that mean racking the slide, putting one in the pipe?

Does that now forever end this question?

Even when you have the element of surprise, you end up dead.

Maybe our bad guy watched too much TV.

Wanted to be dramatic.

I give the cop the benefit of the doubt that "cock" means to cock the hammer, rather than assume incompetence.
The reporter, may have misinterpreted, what the police said. It could be that the police said " he was trying to rack the slide, to cock the gun" and they simply shortened it, not knowing what racking the slide meant. If the BG was just trying to cock the hammer, it is a relatively quick action, with the thumb. JMHO

That's what I thought at first, but then I clicked the link and heard the cop speak on camera.
Was likely using the victims wording. ... It's not important he got his message across.
