Lord P seems to be against police brutality, regardless of race.

He's a black man and you have to commend him.

Too many officers are cowards and kill without merit.

How does pepper spray prevent the individual from stabbing the cop with a knife?

Do you REALLY think that lady was a real threat?

SERIOUSLY?

Tase her first and she goes down like a sack of potatoes.

Transgender people aren't destroying America.

The people that think pandering to their illness is ok are one of the many things destroying America.

You're an idiot and it would take you personally being in a training exercise with a guy holding a pretend knife that suddenly starts running for you, for you to get it. Holy shit... they can close the gap quicker than you think, what don't you get?

If the pain alone doesnít get them to stop in their tracks, the fact that they canít see one inch in front of them might just do it. Iím not an expert on this stuff, but Iíve seen it used on bears, I donít think some feminine dude is going to be able to attack through that.

I agree with you, this guy doesn't seem dangerous at all to warrant that shot. Clearly the police didn't need to use such force. But I'm glad they did, and it's not because he's a tranny. It's because he's a dumbass.

It doesn't matter who, an old frail lady or a big NFL dude, if the police orders you to drop your knife on gunpoint, has given you ample time and warnings and you don't comply, I always agree with shooting them. It gives a good example to everyone out there that this is how law enforcement work and it does not discriminate.

So your main argument is that a melee weapon wielder can close a gap quickly. No shit. The gap in the video you have shown is clearly not comparable to the gap between the students and the officers. On top of that, they all knew what to expect, there were multiple officers at the scene, and they were all given ample time to increase the gap and prepare a nonlethal weapon. The person who shot him was clearly ready to do it at any time, the student took one step forward and got shot. If the weapon wielder was clearly aggressive I would agree with you, but at the very most he was being uncooperative with them.

TBH, shooting him/her is excessive. Tasering would have done just as well. But that being said the transgender obviously had some sort of agenda. Probably wanted the cops to shot earlier so he/she can be paraded around campus as some sort of champion against the police. People like him/her are professional victims

Even with damn video tape to repeatedly freely watch you still can't give a reliable account of events... thankfully you aren't testifying with anyone's life on the line... lol...

You can't pepper spray the person until they are close enough to you. Possibly close enough to take a swipe with a knife.

I can see where a tazer may help. At least an attempt.

Take down, pepper spray shot at the leg are out of the question for me.
