From today's Oregonian:
Is this the result of Kroeker's trip to Israel a few months back to receive training in tactics from IDF (Israeli Defense Forces)?
Sounds like tactics used in Gaza and elsewhere in the Palestinian territories.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Police fatally shot a woman Monday who climbed into the driver's seat of a detained car and tried to drive away, police spokesman Sgt. Brain Schmautz said.
Police pulled over the car, which had three people in it, around 3 a.m. Monday and detained the car's driver.
The woman, 21-year-old Kendra Sarie James of Portland, climbed into the driver's seat from the back seat, Schmautz said. Officers used a stun gun and fired a shot from a service revolver, he said. Three officers were on the scene at the time, he said.
It was unclear why the officers stopped the car. Schmautz did not return repeated calls for additional comment.
The officer who fired his revolver is a two-year veteran, Schmautz said. Police have not released the identities of the officer who fired the shots, pending further investigation.
