Miriam Carey, RIP!

I was guarding the Royal Palace in Stockholm during military service. I was told: first shout, then shoot into air, then shoot into leg. Kill only as last resort.

If she was driving a car, shooting a tire to stop it might have been a thing. If there had been explosives, killing her would not have stopped explosion, unless she was to trigger it. If she had been delaying it as one delays explosion of hand grenades, killing her would have triggered explosion.

I am so reminded of the scene in Syldavia where Tintin faces the pistol of a King who lost his Sceptre "Don't shoot, Your Majesty, I am no Anarchist!"

But maybe the guards were more into the latest film than into Hergé.
