I literally just watched this, if this video is real how the fuck can anyone defend the police now. Yelling shoot me, shoot me isn't a reason to get shot. I dont care what you think about the guy jumping up on the ledge or whatever it wasn't a life or death situation.
Who filmed that, Dave Chappelle?
Couldn't have tased him?
If he was advancing with a knife (I can't tell by the video) I guess it's justified. Even so, cops shouldn't have a gun pointed at you the second they get out of the car. There's no attempt to diffuse the situation, it's all intimidation and force.
Guy had a knife. He was taunting police with it and went toward them and disobeyed orders when they told him to stop. He got killed.
I guess there's a lesson in there somewhere :\
No, but approaching the police in a threatening manor with a knife in your hand ( which this young man unfortunately did) sure is..
I Agee that this is very hard to watch and I feel terrible that it happened..... But people who do fucked up shit end up in fucked up situations.
What was this young man thinking and why in the world would he continue to aggressively approach armed officers with their guns drawns with a knife in his hand if he didn't have a death wish?
Dun dun dun... another thug bites the dust ahh...
Dont steal shit?
It was reported he had mental issues.
True… he also stole those drinks and some snacks.
Here's an article on this guy:
This is another suicide by a cop incident.
This page has a video of him stealing shit:
Wielding a big-ass steak knife at cops and rushing towards them? WTF man… of course you're gonna get killed. Do that to a gun carrying civilian and he will kill you too.
I'm guessing most people who get themselves shot by police do. No being a dick....just a fact.
It's quite an old adage..."don't bring a knife to a gun fight."
I hope the guy who took the time to film all of this wasn't late getting back to work.
^ Im sure he was on his lunch break.
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
Looks like a case closed to me.
Anyone who wants to live doesn't do one damn thing this dead fool did from A-Z.
This is an outrage at how much the media and eyewitnesses heresay have made him the victim and opportunistic fame whores drag this out.
"What about tasering him?"
He was a few feet away w a knife and advancing. Anyone w a badge or not and a gun in your hand would shoot for self defense w seconds to live or be attacked.
Rest in pieces, douche thug.
Not really. He starts off several yards away, walks toward them, stops, then turns away and jumped up on the wall before lunging back toward them. There was more than enough time to taser the guy. Not saying the kill wasn't justified, but it wasn't necessary.
