Still your assessment is exact and wading through the BS, a knife wielder gets shot every time..
police are trained to fire CENTER MASS and not stop until the threat is eliminated
You shoot to stop the threat as quickly and efficiently as possible
I will never be able to sway the cop haters looking for justification for a hate that fills and corrupts their very souls.. Most because they got a ticket. Most are never truthful on here anyway.
Comparing other countries, while an oft used tactic on ATS, means absolutely zero as the cultures are completely different..
I am just amazed by the fact that American police are trained to shoot center mass and not stop shooting untill the threat is neutralised.
I mean, maybe the situation over there actually calls for such measures but you have to understand that, to me, that seems like the stuff you see in movies and has nothing to do with reality.

what has 'close combat' got to do with anything in the OP? your militaristic mindset is showing (your avatar is also a clue)
