  1. This is what I saw, the officer knows that just by his presence alone, the suspect will get agitated, so this officer pushes himself & forces himself further & further know very well that this will increase the agitation of the suspect, then the officer pulls out his taser, purposely misses, continuing the agitation, and now resulting to using his gun.. This cops are fucking dirty, shady, sleazy bags.

  2. If the officer was competent with his taser this could have possibly ended without shots fired. The officer went to tase him and the safety was still engaged on the taser then when he finally fires the taser he waits until the worst possible time when the man with the knife is holding a shirt or something of that kind in front of him making a barrier between the cop and the taser.

  3. If that had been a black man I’ll hell would be breaking right now. Why the fuck did the cop not tell anybody that he was shot. If this had been reversed and that was a black man everybody would be raising hell right now

  4. No reason to shoot him. Plenty of space to drop back and nobody else in the vicinity. No reason to close distance on him to make the shooting necessary.
    Also,awful non existent first aid application.
    Overall, dismal police performance
    Thankfully the man suffering in mental crisis was not also killed.

  5. One shot that’s all it took officers around America. Look that’s how you do it no need to unload your clip or need to have the hole damn department there for one man with a knife officer well done.
