Having delt with a lot of violent inebriated people over the years profesionally
with the benefit of NO WEAPONS
and having suffered no injuries or charges,
I'm going to say
killing is the cowards way

If he was on SSRI drugs why not shoot his doctor?

i can say they could have taken the time, but that is not the way we roll in the world these days

So you tell me Chad...
Why were tasers introduced into Australia ???

There has been nearly as many deaths in aust from tasers as guns too backinblack.( even a coulple last year)
And in canada 26 deaths have been attributed to tasers since 2002.
So i feel that tasers are just as bad as gun.
Both gun and tasers are violent and unnecessary most time's.
So i still dont know if these cops are wrong. But.......

I still dont know why there isn't a bean bag gun for the cops to use to prevent such alltacations from taking place.

I see what you mean, perhaps trigger happy was a poor choice of words. Perhaps to quick to reach for thier guns and not an alternative to subdue the suspects that were only carrying knives.

Yes obviously it's stupid to lunge at the cops with a knife, i have every respect for what police do everyday ad some of the crap they have to put up with. I am not trying to defend the suspects only defending the fact they were shot.
