Arent all officers recieving the same training? Some handle life threatening situations professionally, some make everything life threatening justifying shooting to kill? Hooray for the Oakland Cop Killer he got 4 stars on his chest.

Hooray for the Oakland cop killer?? You dont have the balls to get yourself some stars?? So instead you praise some coward, who by the way was shot to death hiding in a closet! You are not a real "OG" if you are sitting at home (probaly in some ghetto ass apartment), surfing the internet, rather than in jail :)

Why did the officer have to tase him? The officer is supposed to ask politely and shake his hand.

You're right bro. Also, what I said about the Oakland cops was totally wrong. I was abused as a kid and I've done and said stupid stuff all my life. I think that's why I love men. I've always wanted love from my father, but never got it. That's why me and my homies look towards older men for attention. Again, im sorry.

Even if the Police Officer would have shot the man it would have been justified. What the hell was this man thinking pulling a knife out on an Officer? He's lucky he only got tased.

See, this is the way to do it. You got to be some kind of nut to pull a knife on a cop in the first place. But the Officer used restraint and just tazed the guy instead of emptying his semi auto into his torso. Good job, no blood no foul. And no lawsuit for over excessive force.

I think cops should throw their guns at the criminals and use kind words to defuse a volatile situation! And after all is done head over to IHOP for coffee and flapjacks.
