Most likely the poor old guy had dementia. You would think there would be alternative methods to control and disarm the elderly who are suffering with a mental disease.

If he was just crazy, he would not have threatened the 2. They have a part to play in this that they will have to live with for the rest of their lives.

What the hell is going on here?
In the urban communities because of high crime this type killing by police of innocent people has gone on for years.
Now that the police state is branching out it stands to reason that non urban folks are going to have more troubling incidents like this with the police.
I can’t judge how a cop should respond but a 107 year old man I think they could have brought in some negotiators or something
