Call an ambulance where they can sedate him. Yes, that means getting in arm's reach and that carries risk, but I would think five or six cops could
unarm him using little more than a net or pepper spray.
Are you kidding me? A net? Since when do the police have anything to do with a net?
"Here sarg you take this end and we will circle him a couple of times" Get real!
And ambulance drivers are not bouncers. They are not there or even trained to deal with violent people. That is the job of the police.
People on here are assuming that the officer had a taser on his belt. Not every officer carries one.
Plus as far as I know police are trained 'Shoot to kill" not wound him a bit.
Imagine the law suits. "You didn't have to shoot his knee. You could have shot his calf."
And no it's not trainning to run the other direction if you don't want to shoot the person. That could lead to a law suit as well.
Picture this. The officer backs off and the kid turns on a neighbor and injures or kills him. Can you say millions?
It's not the officers fault the kid did not respond to orders. That loose chimpanzee didn't respond to orders a year ago either. Neither the kid or
the chimp could understand the consequences. Too bad!
To those who feel the police are just a bunch of jack boot thugs, why don't you become one? Be one of the good ones. Then you can try to talk sense
into some crack head. Or wrestle with a weapon yelding autistic kid. We bury good cops every year.
