God, being a police officer would suck.
The taser had no effect on him whatsoever, is that rare?
I have no idea, but big fan of your CCTV threads!
it's a terrible situation
the police aren't equipped to deal with the truly mentally ill
the truly mentally ill shouldn't be left to their own deluded choices
and this is what we get
a sick man killed by officers just trying to deal with him without getting killed themselves
it's a shame this happens in a modern society
Cant wait for all the "the cops are monsters they should have talked it out, tried a different tactic" shut up.
I dont see how, a deranged man coming at you with a knife? there is only one choice, put him down.
Not to be a dick....but that giant shield...Can't they just mash him into the wall? he's an old man.
Meh, maybe it's better they offed him...Less burden on society, I guess
There is always a group of people who hate the police and the cops are never right. I think it was last year a guy attacked a cop with a shovel the office pulled his gun out and blasted the guy. The body cam footage was a bit shaky and lots people questioned if the person went after the cop. Last year or the year before in Toronto some kid went on a public bus with a knife, the cops showed up told him number of times to drop it, he didn't and his mom is screaming how the cops "murdered" her son. Sorry for your loss lady, but when a cop tells you to drop something and has his or her weapon drawn...I would have dropped it, end of story.
The taser didn't take him down, or get him to drop the knife, he then started swing, the cops were in the right.
Sad but whatever.
One less burden on society.
If you don't want the possibility of your crazy loved one getting killed, then don't call the cops
They did him a favor.
they should have aimed for his knife hand
Tipsey is on point here. There's really no good outcome in this situation. The mentally ill are arguably worse off than physically disabled in this world.
Great comment....you sir deserve some reps.
A lot of my friends are cops and i asked them this. There answer essentially is because of the shield does t work or net or whatever your dead. And if it is him or you it is gonna be him.
They are taught to shoot to kill because it is you or him.
I hear you and this is awful and I hate this stuff but what can you do?
could he rap
