    This video shows the June 14, 2014 fatal shooting of mental patient Jason Harrison, 38, who was shot while holding a screwdriver after his mother called 911 for help bringing him to Parkland Hospital while he was in a crisis.

    Really. You can see they had tasers, why shoot the guy without tasing him first to try and stop him?? Oh yeah, this is Texas we're talking about...

    Goddamn.
    Cops need to be required to stay in shape and learn basic close quarters hand to hand combat.
    That fucking gun seems to replace a lot of cops brains.
    Thank God I'm white. :hhh:

    The cops are knocking on your front door & you answer it with a potential weapon in your hand

    The guy was mentally ill. Ive been in this situation numerous times, where someone mentally unstable was coming at me with something, be it screwdriver, razorblades, fire extinguishers, scissors, you name it. There are means to prevent this without guns. The fact that they have Crisis Prevention Training, as well as tasters, and they opted to shoot this guy, is reprehensible.
