Sounds legit if he really did advise him multiple times to drop the knife. It was either him or the perp. Investigation is pretty standard when people start slinging lead.
I love how many of you idiots make light of shooting someone though, you guys sound like you do it every day. A cop may do it once in his life around these parts and it can be a life-altering thing. Smart money is half of you would wet yourself if you were ever in that situation, probably couldn't even get the safety off.
Don't be too sure. A lot of democrats at risk wound up disappearing in New Orleans when they tried to exploit the Katrina chaos by robbing others, etc.

I guess the only people they can safely tazer are unarmed teenagers and the elderly that back talk while being ticketed. If you want to see your distraught, or emotionally disturbed family members killed, by all means call your local PD for assistance, they appear to be more than eager to shoot them for you.
Guardian, the police, me, you and anyone else defending themselves do NOT have the obligation to do a phsyc. eval before defending yourself. If the threat is real, defend yourself.

Let's hope that "guardian" and "perspective" stay knavish long enough to allow a "ute at risk" to run them through.

The officer did what he was trained to do. I once was an officer and the training is cut and dry. Alot of people don't realize that a knife can do more damage than a gun if used properly. The split second decision that officer had to make, brought him back to his training which he re-trains regularly and used the weapon that would instantly disarm the subject and the situation. Kuddos to the officer and i hope he gets some help for the possible psychological effects it might have on him. Also, that same cop that you call a pig will be the one you are gonna want to save you one day when you are in a situation. Walk in his shoes for a month and i guarantee you would not like it.

That cops story reminds me of a South Park episode when the redneck has to justify shooting the animals, "the rabbit was charging right at me". I hope when you morons call the cops you all get the service you have come to expect.

If you "knew" law enforcement, you wouldn't refer to the officer as a "deputy". It's a police officer of the Harrisonburg Police Department.
I know law enforcement I have been in it for 30 years. If you read my thread you would see I never mentioned deputy. I know this is a city Police Officer investigation....... The person I commented on called him a deputy.

sounds like you have been in this criminals spot before? too bad the outcome wasn't the same.:)
Sorry to burst your reality, never been in trouble. One need only watch the misdeeds of men with badges on the news. Yes that doesn't represent all cops but they do spoil the whole barrel. How many times did a cop do something stupid only to have his bosses try to cover it up, even here in Cville.

citizen...... I legally carry a .45 and am not worried about "utes", or anybody else running me through. I wonder if the cop would have shot the mentally distressed man if a camera had been present at the scene of this shooting. ANY and ALL interactions with police, especially on your own property should be recorded.

Which reminds me, Cville cops are doing a program were by some cops will be wearing a video recorder on their person. Hopefully it will aid in reducing unwarranted behavior on their part.

By your reasoning the felons among us spoil the entire barrel of humanity----------

Do us all a favor---when ute at risk comes through the door, handle it yourself and don't call the police.

Yes, he was defending his own right to live.
The camera would have helped him avoid stupid arm chair quarterbacking by LIBS such as yourself!

- Perspective - The police would just erase any incriminating evidence that actually showed their actions not matching their official version of events released to the media, they would also refuse release under the FOIA. They do it all the time. - NO PC BS - My lengthy criminal record must have been why my Virginia CWP was granted same day as requested. By whatever name you go by, you are still a moron.
