46 times for a person who wasn't even charging at them with the knife in his hand. He was walking away from them not towards them.

On one hand It does seem a bit excessive but on the other hand it's one less criminal we have to support.

I completely disagree with the way the officers handled this. If the used speed clips they could have shot him more than 70 times at least. No matter what color you are - no matter how special and unique you think you are - when a cop pointing a gun at you commands you to put the knife down - PUT THE KNIFE DOWN. It appears the death was directly related to the stupidity of the offender. He had his chance to put the knife down. Night night.

Sound's likely that they might both have screwed up....the guy did'nt listen to the cops for shit.....and the cop's might have overreacted....unless you can completely see, what they saw, it's awful hard to judge....Many will just judge by race....

It his own fault and no one else's that he was killed. The guy had a knife and wouldn't put it down and was threatening them. Shoot him. I get it.

But I also believe the police was out of control and they did execute him. One or two bullets to put him down would of sufficed.

You expectation that Police should try to "wing" criminals who represent a threat to the life of the officer or other citizens is unreasonable. It is called DEADLY force not painful force or "hurt you pretty bad" force. If you force and officer into having to shoot you what you get is what you get. When the police have to use their weapon have you ever heard of them shooting someone just once - now they may hit them once but it is not in their training to shoot - them check the criminal and shoot again as necessary. You might not be as cool and collected if you had a nut with a knife in front of you. Anyone who forces an officer to use their weapon can expect to get the full clip each and every time.

No! You are grasping at straws or listening to Limbaugh too much; maybe both. The mere fact that a citizen--not an offender--is holding a knife does not give the police--automatically--the right to murder an innocent person. The police MUST establish that the individual wielding the knife is an IMMINENT THREAT to the officer, some other person or himself. It's as simple as that.
.
What has happened in the United States, but not in civilized nations, the police and the courts have tortured the meaning of "imminent danger" to mean "police order." This, of course is especially true when it comes to Black citizens. A case can be made that many whites consider themselves in "imminent danger" whenever they are in the presence of African Americans.
.
Even if the police, in this case, felt they were in danger the police, again in a civilized nation, are empowered to use "sufficient force."
.
This case is an example of how totally uncivilized and murderous some police departments have become. Clearly, their victim was not a serious threat to anyone, and even if he were there absolutely should be no need for six cops and one or two watch dogs to shoot the poor guy over 40 times. Again, in any--any--civilized nation, those cops should have been fired and on trial for wanton murder.

Saginaw County Prosecutor Michael Thomas said later that the squad of police confronting him opened fire "because apparently, at this point in time, he was threatening to assault police."

A man walking 20 away from them was "was threatening to assault police

When an officer commands you to "put the knife down now" and you keep holding the knife you have established yourself as an imminent danger. I don't know where this twisted belief comes from that you don't have to obey a command from a police officer pointing a gun at you. There is no choice or discussion - you follow the command or you get shot. Ask the guy who had the knife - bet he is a believer now.
