|I would have done the same thing|
Quoting Wiggity Wack:" a. Not really. Both professions require that you stay calm in scary situations. b. I don't really see ... [snip!] ... clip into a suspect that it turns out wasn't holding a weapon. Check your bitchy attitude. It's not needed. This is a debate."

Quoting Wiggity Wack:" Check your messages. What have I said that didn't make sense? Yeah, no smurf. I haven't been in a situation ... [snip!] ... not a police officer. The man in question is, and should be well prepared to deal with hostile/potentially combative suspects."

Quoting Tarynosaurus Rex:" Completely over the top UNJUSTIFIED. Just like the girl who was shot for shoplifting down the street ... [snip!] ... many places. Smurf you...you don't have the right to take a human life without giving them a second to respond to your demands."I thought the same thing...he didn't have to approach so rapidly & fire AS he was telling him to "get on the ground" as if he had any other choice when half his blood volume was spilling out.
Quoting Alicia Holz:" like i told my cousin last night ok they said he had a throwing knife now unless hes a smurfn ninja what ... [snip!] ... did are job im sorry but imo if this was a white guy this wouldnt have happened or they wouldnt have shot him so many times..."
