Default WHY cops SHOOT guys with knives (graphic)

I rc'd this in an email from a friend...

THIS WAS AN INJURY THAT COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED.
DON'T BE A HERO...
SHOOT, SHOOT, SHOOT.

The photos are of an officer trained in hand-to-hand combat.

The officer figured, due to his size and fighting skills, he could disarm a knife wielding aggressor.
Here is why I am forwarding these on.

To all the idiots out there who always say, "Why did the cops have to shoot him? He only had a (insert your choice of weapons here, i.e. knife, bat, club. whatever). He didn't have to be shot."

To that, I respond, "tough crap .. shoot'em".

If an officer tells you to drop your weapon, just drop it.

If you're a retard, stupid, on crack, mental or just "scared" ... too bad.

No one deserves what this cop got for just doing his job.

This is vivid proof of how deadly people who are "only armed with a knife" can be. Some of the public think that officers should try to disarm someone armed with a knife but anyone who has had training in knife fighting will tell you - even if you win you are going to get cut

Keep this in the back of your mind when confronting someone armed with an edged weapon.

I'd like to know who trained this officer in hand to hand? Thats way too many wounds in different areas. Source? Why an officer would close and try to disarm someone like that is beyond me anyway.

"source" was an email, fwd of a fwd, so can't verify... i didn't snope it cuz regardless what happened the point seems valid - there is a time for lethal-force, and we should ponder be oprepared within our personal abilities & gut to use it as best we can.

Turney was suspended after the shooting in what officials would only say was an unrelated matter. Last year he was cleared by the department in the shooting death of an 18-year-old hearing impaired youth, also Black, who allegedly was wielding a pocketknife.

Oh I totally agree with the point..anyone threatens me with a knife, well he or she will just find out they have brought a knife to a gunfight. I just question how well trained this person was..or if he just thought he was. Thats all, thats why I wanted the source to investigate, I mean really the pics could be someone who got jumped or whatever.

a knife is a lethal weapon and you can respond with lethal force in my state.

Thanks for the link I didn't think a well trained officer would end up that way.
