Obviously, Toronto Police Officers has been watching too much American Law Enforcement videos. Shoot first and ask questions later? or "If you see a
man with a knife, shoot, shoot shoot!!!" We have seen that countless of times here in the states and thats acceptable by most departments because
it's justifiable in their policies.
I can tell you by my experience, when my fugitives decides in his head he's going to pull a knife on me, I will taze him without a second notice.
Your firearm should always be holstered unless its an intimate threat to your life or if he (suspect) has an firearm
In this case, this officer did not use his best judgment and why because they are all trigger happy. This maybe a shock to Toronto residents but here
in the states, that's a normal everyday occurrence.
I do hope that this officer will be held accountable to an degree. Every (honorable) peace officer should have a taser with them.
