    of course I wasn't there and I'm not a Cop, nor have ever been a Cop, I'm just another schmuck on the internet passing distant judgement but:



    What with all the contention between Cops and the Navajo, and the Cops with Black people, and the Cops with Brown people, couldn't the first fucking response maybe just be:

    a. pepper spray
    b. tazer (let her ride the lightening)
    c. Double team tackle
    d. all of the above

    instead of draw and kill this woman?

    What the goddamn fuck?

    We should have separate discussions about every single incident of violence in the United States. That would be fun.

    Before he throws her it appears she tried to get a few shanks in. her intentions to do bodily harm were clear (likely lethal harm) , and she was making an obvious attempt at a second attack.

    because of that the officer is clear in my opinion

    however,if you know you have backup in proximity with an advantageous position and the threat is scissors im going to err on the side of non lethal action. But i wasnt there so its easy to keyboard warrior.

    edit: freeze frame of the scissors prior to being thrown

    This is after he took her down and she managed to get back up, holding the scissors in her right hand (view blocked).

    His takedown skillz are shit but in that scenario, with her in that close proximity holding a knife, I can see how he reacted to the threat of death or serious bodily harm with lethal force.

    Perps should really check out the use of force model instead of thinking they're gonna be the one the cops choose to disregard it for.

    Looks justified.

    I'm not sure if either of the cops had a tazer but if so maybe the cop in the back could have tazed her.

    It happened fast and in a situation like that instinct takes over.

    Fuck pepper spray in a situation like that, it's shit at best and in that situation I would not bet my life on it for sure.

    Clear Sure, and absolutely easy to keyboard warrior this, but --- I think it bugs me since its a woman. Plus she's walking towards him, not doing the Usain Bolt at him.

    Who's AA?

    The issue is in that situation what are you doing if the pepper spray or tazer dont work?
    I mean the Cop misses his one shot with the tazer, the woman can stab him in the neck or chest.

    Dont want to get shot, dont run at cops with a deadly weapon.

    Nope, too hard apparently. I can't imagine a scenario where i would shoot a woman who had a pair of scissors as a weapon

    She was approaching him with scissors and intent to do harm, it seems like a good shoot to me.
