My thoughts & prayers are with the NKPD. They are there to protect us & they did. Do you want a person running around town wealding a knife or do you want to be safe. To Jerry, have you read the articles??? They did stun him & he continued to lunge at them with a knife. I'd like to know what you would do in that situation!
I'd tell you what I would not do and that is shoot the kid 9 times. Pretty pathetic if you ask me. NK cops are a disgrace.

the updated story(as of tonight) stated that the stun gun didn't work..so much for the superhuman strength that threatened the police officers. you shoot a human being in leg if it's the absolute last resort....not 9 times, 3 in the face, and several in vital organs. that's a bunch of ****...i knew mark personally. he allowed myself and band members to stay at his apartment while we were on tour...nicest kid i've ever met in my life. hang in there mark...
Thanks Josh I remember Mark telling me about meeting you a few summers ago and letting you stay with him on federal hill, he is the nicest kid..we're hanging in there love his mom

I am sorry to hear a Law Enforcement Officer was hurt!! the man they say has mental problems in the first report! Hopefully he will survive and get the help he needs!! when you are mentally Ill treatment is the key!! glad to hear no one else was hurt!! trying to serve and protect is a hard job I would not want to be the officers who had no choice but to open fire on the man I'm sure the Officers will be haunted by their decision!! but I do understand it!!

This is very sad on both sides I know about mental Illness a family member of mine is Ill! it is a hard nut to crack!! I pray he will be ok!! and I am sure the Officers feel bad I wouldn't want to think this was done intentionally!! trust me they will be haunted by their actions for the rest of their lives!! I just feel so very badly alot of people do not take the time to understand mental Illness some people just label them I have seen it it is really sad!! HANG IN THERE!! I'll keep praying!!

If police aren't properly trained, they are going to screw up, and they sure did on this case. This isn't an isolated situation. I have been researching this for a few years now since my brother was shot to death (9 bullets also). There are many people in RI and the rest of the country who are suing municipalities due their grave errors. This poor young man was a known mentally ill person. He was very depressed, and was seeking help, and panicked. Instead of the police helping, they ruined this kid. There is plenty of training out there for police depts. I have friends in the field, and there are alot less incidents when police are trained. To Mark's mom, I have been in contact with other families who have gone through this. We are going to be working a statewide and national legislation to properly train the police on dealing with the mentally ill, and even have a mental episode due to diabetes, etc. When police are trained, they are safer, and so are those who are sick.
