I didn't say anything about that so don't put words in my mouth please. I just noted what I saw were some weird things about the video...i have no clue what their operating procedures are but I highly doubt they go out with a single mag. Maybe they do...why then was hers empty? It made an obviously hollow sound when it hit the deck...30rounds of whatever make a pretty solid thud when it hits.

Stop being so silly. She was armed with a knife and there was at least 7 officers around her. No -one said bum rush her. They could have approached her peacefully (remember 7 officers against one woman not a one on one situation) and dis-armed her with low force.
In my oppinion the officers ramped up the situation by shouting orders at her. Yes ,yes we know they have to take command of the situation but in this instance it should have been a softly, softly approach.
Equally remember it was a knife she was "armed" with so if she wasn't going to throw it with that many officers she could have been dis-armed quite easily.
