The police have been given too much power in recent years. It seems any little excuse is used to be able to show a use of force. The average citizen has no rights when it comes to the police. A pocket knife is in no way a threat to a trained officer. Even if it had, they could have disabled the man with a shot to the leg to allieviate that threat.
One cannot even drive his/her own car these days, without being harrassed by the police at a so called checkpoint, being treated like a criminal. America's new motto; Guilty until proven innocent.

In my opinion, if you pull a gun or a knife on a police officer, they should shoot to kill. Our police men and women face danger everyday, and many are killed in the line of duty. As an added bonus, this man will no longer be a danger to the community.

Do you consider a gambler a threat to the community Jon Garcia ? I guess it's gonna take some trigger happy cop taking out one of the people close to you before you think about what has been going on with the police lately.
Two Cops shoot and kill 19 year old girl with a knife in Huntington Beach, California , these are police armed with batons & pepper spray yet needed target practice. Cop kills 15 year old boy and wounds 16 year old in a stolen car , claims they were tyring to run him down, this thing cops killed this guy at his home , wake up before you become a victim.

The only way to become a victim is if you put yourself in that position and victim is not the correct description anyway you f*ckwit. The proper term is perpetrator and if a perp threatens a cop with deadly force they should be shot and killed like the dogs they are you dumb a**!
Just a thought from your friendly neighborhood arbitor of good common sense.
this is my last post to this thread as well so no last word for you again A**hole!
