I don't think everyone should hate on security guards unless like anybody else they act like a tool.

At least the guard is going to work for a paycheck and not sitting at home on welfare with a video game system.

The person acting like a guard that is tougher than everyone else is a tool.

Dude, seriously, do you have a 2" penis and stand 5'3? Because you sure sound like it! You're a F'n security guard you idiot! There is a reason everyone makes fun of you jack-ass rent-a-cops! You all wish you had the power to carry more than a flashlight and could command even half of the tiny amount of respect the police get today, but you don't! Congrats on the fact you manage to get off your ass and go to work instead of sitting at home and waiting on your welfare check but that's where my or anyone's respect for a security guard ends. Seriously man, shut up before you make an even bigger idiot out of yourself! You are embarrassing the Securitas company and other security guards even more with your attitude and comments and I would actually call Securitas and let them know they had an employee acting like this if I thought for a second they would do anything about it. But, they won't! Want to know why? Because you're a F'n security guard! It's hard enough to find someone to work such a shitty job, they can't afford to fire the ones they find! Try hitting yourself over the head with your flashlight and knocking some sense into your head. Then, go back to sleep and keep dreaming of the day anyone will have any respect for a security guard. And, if you ever do want people to take you seriously then quit acting like a douche bag!(And get a more respectable job, like a cashier at K-Mart!)

The Officer was completely justified in what he did..
With that being said however, If I were in that situation I believe I would have attempted some less than lethal force if it were me.
Try to taze him, if that doesn't work you can always escalate the force used.
Yeah, in a perfect world or if the knife wielding idiot was plenty of distance away then they could have tried less than lethal force. But, if they were anywhere near the golden 21 ft or less then there isn't time to try anything less than lethal. Contrary to popular belief the cops, for the most part, would rather use less than lethal force in most situations. They don't feel good about taking someone's life. So, I have to think the cop made the right assessment of the situation and chose the only option he could to ensure his life was safe.

I can partially agree with your response.

The 21 foot rule is valid. Someone withing 21 feet can reach you before you can pull your weapon and fire.

However, I cannot agree that all policeman would rather use less than lethal force.

There have been many stories where a policeman shoots a dog on site when they are going to call rather than fleeing or using any less than lethal force. I think a lot of policeman just get a kick out of killing.

I am by no means saying that was the case in this situation but I believe that many policeman use deadly force prematurely (even though legally justified) when less than lethal force would suffice.

That's why I said MOST cops, not ALL cops, would rather use less than lethal force.
