possibly where I got the idea that you meant "just a knife ".
If he has a knife they don't need to "handle him " but instead use deadly force.I understand everyone has their own opinion and that's ok. I'm not saying your wrong , Department of justice will determine justified or not. I agreed the timing was a little off but do you know how the amount of force justified is determined ? If he had been shot prior to turning around , when he was armed would it be "ok"? I put no stock in the news but when the chief of APD says that a tazer was utilized I imagine he would have a reason to say that ??
I just hate the way you talk. Trying to give all officers a bad reputation because you don't agree with this shooting. That BS man, look at the pictures again......officers putting themselves in harms way to protect people such as yourself and this is how you show gratitude ? by bad mouthing " officers these days "?
AND splatt , the point of a flashbang is basically to disorient . ????
