I’m not going to play armchair quarterback and say whether the police officer was right or wrong in this situation.
I will however offer my personal preference and that is for police to tone the shootings down. Police have always had to deal with crazy people doing crazy things. It used to be that police would pride themselves on never having to take out their gun, or use it. Now it seems like police training has defaulted towards gun use and mag dumping. I personally would rather see cops get those long nightsticks again, walk into a situation like this three or four deep, and just go to town. I’d be totally fine with police beating the crazy out of someone temporarily.
