Were you trained to shoot at unarmed assailants? He was disarmed before being shot. I hope that everyone who thinks the cops did right in this case have themselves or their family members treated the same way they treated Chris. Because as long as those cops are still around, its just a matter of when it will happen to you.

I just finished five years in the Navy as a police officer, and can tell you from training and legal documents, if someone comes at you with a weapon, and you shoot to wound, you can be held accountable in court for your actions. Police officers are taught more than you can ever imagine about certain senarios and possibilities. Until you work most of your life doing that training, shut up. I guarantee most of the people posting the rediculous stuff about shoot him in the leg, or just take him down, have never looked at a psycho with a weapon. Do everything you have to do without using deadly force, but when it is called for, use it. We don't shoot unless we have to, and when we have to we shoot to kill.
