Default Man w/ knife shot 30 times by Police

http://ac360.blogs.cnn.com/2012/08/1...es/?hpt=ac_bn5

First the one in NYC, now another in Michigan.

Where's the damn taser?

EDIT: Examiners say he was shot 46 times.

no shit

hell, a damn maglight should have been enough to knock the knife out of his hand.

and if they are going to shoot, shoot him once in the leg or foot.

why the hell do all of them need to unload unless their only goal is to kill the guy to avoid the paperwork and potential headache of dealing with a person suing the city for police brutality?

that was ****ed up, but what u expect when a ni99a WALKS at you with a knife and lives up to a stereotype, cant take any chances if your white . dude was probably messed up in the head but that firing squad was uncalled for. could have just tazered him, gassed him, hell just a bullet to his legs would take him down. not like that knife he was carrying can be thrown and hit all those cops at once. those cops are probably racist to begin with.
watch the movie freelancer

also see this: man shoots himself in the head while handcuffed from behind in the back of a police car

They could have shot that guy in each leg, eliminating any potential threat. But this is the kind of thing that will be swept under the rug as 'officers were defending themselves',and potentially escalate into a race war.

You can't shoot people in the leg. You get sued. As stupid as it is, that's the society we live in. Every cop in America is taught never to shoot to wound.

I always get annoyed when I read stuff like this. Real life isn't like Hollywood.

If you are going to shoot, you are taught to shoot to kill. Hitting a moving target in the leg in the highest pressure situation of your life is insanely difficult, not to mention the fact that if you mess up it could mean your or another officer/soldier's life.

I remember I was watching cops one time and there was some lady brandishing a big ass kitchen knife. One of the cops runs up behind her and tackles her and she gets impaled on the knife. More cops showed up and the dude was like "yeah she fell". I was like did you forget you were filming Cops dude, everyone is gonna know you tackled her ass.

Not saying he shouldn't have tackled her, he couldn't have predicted shit would impale her.
