The Los Angeles Police Commission who is tasked with setting policies for the police department, has decided that if an officer is confronted by an armed subject they should run away. The decision stems from an officer involved shooting where a suspect charged two officers with a large knife, citing that the officers should have “redeployed” to “create distance.”

LA Police Union: Police Commission Wants Cops To Run From Armed Suspects

Every now and then I come across a story that's so impossible to believe, I wonder how it could be true. Could it be fluoride in the water, prescription drugs, and GMO food causing intelligence to disappear?

What are Los Angeles police officers supposed to do? If they follow this order, they're putting their lives in jeopardy. If they don't follow the order, they could be facing prison (as far as I understand the situation).

What would you do if you were in their shoes? How about suing The Los Angeles Police Commission for incompetence?

Redeploy to create distance does not equal run away. In a gun vs. knife situation distance works well.

Not to many battles are won by retreating.
What happens when the word gets out on the street that the cops are going to run away when you flash a gun? Sunshine and lollipops is suppose.

Well, that will really inspire confidence. Next question. If the police run away or redeploy as the article states and the suspect harms an innocent bystander as a result .... can the innocent bystander or family sue the police?

Do you base this speculation on the title of the OP, or something factual?

Yes.

Maybe. Possibly. Critical thought will come into play at some point though.
