Shooting someone with mental issues is justifiable?

And unarmed?? How about a policy to have the person restrained while transporting them and it would not happen

He was restrained. He was saying multiple times he was going to kill him an officer. He had intent by going after the officer's weapon. Not everything makes the paper of is reported.

Must have had restraints that aren't worth a crap. How can someone get his hands on his gun and break the gun belt is he is restrained?? I thought restraints was suppose to keep him from being able to use his hands? And if he said multiple times he was going to kill an officer, why wasn't his legs restrained so he couldn't kick out windows?

Leg restraints will not keep a person from kicking out a window. They make them kick the window with both feet at the same time. Leg restraints actually wouldn't have helped in this situation.

Additonally, Mental Health transports generally are handcuffed to the front. Thus, the man had availablity for lateral movement. Some psychotic and drugged individuals have an increased strength due to chemicals released in the brain during adrenaline based reactions. Truly, they feel no pain. I can see this happening with all these variables.

Yes the right leg restraints can keep a prisoner from kicking out windows. Legs chained to floor bolts will solve that problem. Also I was always under the impression you never handcuff and prisoner in the front. Do anyone have any idea what some cuffs around a police officer's neck does? How quick he can use cuffs in the front to break an officer's neck? I have seen the restraints US Marshall use to transport prisoners across the county with the waist chains and the hands attached to the side. Maybe the county needs to see the use of these and stop cuffing prisoners and mental cases in the front and use real leg restraints.
yep

That would be nice because that is not the style they have here. Plus alot of officers put too much trust in the barrier in the car. I guess the complacency comes to light in situations such as this.
