    Yes we have stores like this all over :jj:


    Weatherford , TX - The family of Randall Waddel, who was holding a knife when he was shot and killed by a Weatherford police officer in June, this week released video of the shooting, saying it shows that Waddel was attempting to flee the officer and was not threatening the officer or bystanders when he was shot.

    Waddel – who had been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder and was legally intoxicated at the time – was chased at gunpoint through the store and did not respond to commands from the officer to drop the knife before he was shot, according to video and witness accounts.

    “My brother walked all the way around and tried to avoid him [the officer] at all costs,” Waddel’s sister, Joyce Conner, said. “Never one time did he hold up the knife. Not one time.”

    Conner said she doesn’t believe the 49-year-old Waddel behaved in a way that should have resulted in the officer shooting him.

    “He had no lawful reason to shoot my brother,” Conner said. “He [Waddel] was mentally ill and scared.”

    A grand jury declined to pursue criminal charges against 47-yerar-old Christopher Brown, an eight-year veteran of the Weatherford police force.

    Weatherford Police Chief Mike Manning said he believes Brown handled the situation appropriately.

    According to the Texas Ranger investigation report, witnesses reported that Brown repeatedly ordered Waddel to drop the knife.

    As Waddel ran down an aisle and neared the front door of the store, Brown ran in front of Waddel and shot him as Waddel neared the officer and turned toward the door, the video shows.

    Waddel was struck by the first bullet on the right side of his chest and then a second bullet that went into his side, according to the autopsy report.

    How come you can carry a gun around and not get shot, but a knife gets you death?

    Might as well just shoot our mentally ill. We sure as hell don't treat them worth a shit. They're all either homeless or in prison.

    I still don't understand why aren't officers given Tazers as part of their daily gear yet. I bet that officer if he had a choice would have rather incapacitated that person instead dropping two slugs in him.

    A drunk, mentally ill man brandishing a knife ran straight at a police officer and got shot. Who gives a fuck, who gives a shit?

    I'm sure he was going to run right out of the store and turn his life around. I'm sure had he not been shot, the police would never have to deal with him again. I have empathy for the mentally ill, but once you have a knife and start commiting crimes, all bets are off. Better this guy got shot than some poor bastard getting knifed out on the sidewalk.

    but he was mentally ill. everyone knows mentally ill people never actually hurt anyone. they should have let this guy do as he pleases because he was mentally ill.

    mentally ill people should be allowed up to 10 felonies. it's the humane thing to do.

    also, he was mentally ill :grad:

    Let's say he rounded a corner and knifed some little kid in the eye while running from the cop?

    Kill him again.

    Here's one. Unfortunately, the officer was killed.

    http://www.fireandreamitchell.com/2...tea-perry-mackey-kills-officer-in-greenville/
    "Black thug and gangbanger Deontea Perry Mackey shot and killed a police officer in Greenville, South Carolina over the weekend, and it didn’t get a sniff of attention from hthe corrupt national media. Instead, while officer Allen Jacobs was being killed by a black thug that is supported by progressives and black lives matter thugs. Officer Jacobs was shot multiple times as the gangbanger Mackey tried to flee."
