Why didn't he just shoot him?

Because it's totally a good idea to shoot at jury rigged explosives..


Because the suicide bomber had some other intention aside from detonating them?

as i understand it, most suicide explosives are operated by a dead man's switch

i.e. if he shot at him the guy would have just exploded with the impact totally undampened

Is there much left to enumerate? What won't idle, well-fed, unfeeling people invent?
