I don't think we're going to be missing out on anything the dead man might have had to offer society, had he lived.

I think in this day and age, we should consider the deliverance of wastrels off of this mortal coil to be the greenest choice a police officer can make. Think of all the nonrenewable resources that were saved.

Fred why don't you do your research before you say such mean & ignorant comments?! This guy had autism. He was excited for his first day of college, some bully like you made fun of him, so David went home mad & the cops were called on him. He had a knife, there's no reason why he needed to be shot 6 times, he didn't have a fire arm, these cops need to & will be punished. Society doesn't need assholes like you Fred, get a life.

Cops aren't in the business of wrestling with "autistic" people swinging knives. If the guy was swinging a knife on you, I suspect you'd have a different outlook on the matter. Crawl back in your sinkhole and pass out, coward.

My wife comes at me with a knife all the time. I just yell, "let's raise the limit on your credit card" and she drops the knife and gives me a hug.
Cops should try that.
Next time, don't marry a common street hooker. As you've discovered, they never change.

No they aren't, you're right about that. But why fatally shoot a young man holding a knife? Why not just shoot him in the leg or arm? Gun vs. knife...the cops had the advantage AND they were warned of the situation beforehand. They acted too aggressively and in turn, negatively affected so many lives.

Let me explain it to you, Ghetto Queen. Police are allowed and encouraged to use deadly force when their lives are threatened. Waving around a knife easily qualifies.

Dealing with the police isn't a game.

That's a concept you and your lowlife friends and family seem to have a very hard time understanding. Meanwhile, you'll keep getting shot until you finally figure it out. When a cop tells you to stop, stop. When a cop says to put down the knife, put down the knife, or get shot. If you have a problem with what the cop is doing, do as your told, and bring it up in court, like an adult, instead of some primitive ghetto rat.
