Herndon does a good job describing the event that happened. But I was struck by the impression that the police response was chaotic and out of control most of the time. More people lost their lives because of this. The Howard Johnson's building was turned into a shooting gallery and they're probably still digging out bullets. One thing that was not brought out was how did the gunman get so much ammo into the building ? It's a good book that points to the changes law enforcement has made when dealing with this type of situation.
