Suspect pulls Knife April 7, 2016

Posted by Retired Geezer in Ballistics.

This went bad quickly. NSFW language.

I’m amazed that nobody shot the guy with the 8″ knife.

a. Mentally ill
b. Non-English speaker
c. Substance abuser
d. All of the above

During this question you will be holding your service pistol while threatened with a 8″ knife. Now…GO!

Holy crap.

Sheesh… I was freaking out when the policeman kept backing into traffic BEFORE any other police showed up. That dude risked his own life seven different ways to avoid further injury to the suspect.

I listened. That cop was always aware of and communicated where any bullet he shot would land, and he really was trying very hard to avoid injury to anyone.

What gun owner — who practices at the range, runs drills at home, AND takes classes covering various situations — would EVER IMAGINE having to deal with this situation.??!!??

Very sad. I heard and felt the officer’s pit-of-the-gut anguish when he was saying ‘let us help you’ but had to shoot the guy a second time. Horrible.

Off Topic: We just watched an amazing film about kindergartners in Sweden. They were out in the woods, rain or shine. Running around, getting wet, using knives, saws, hammers, bows and arrows… learning to start fires, learning about nature.

Mrs. Geezer and I laughed every time we saw the kids doing something that would be too dangerous to be allowed in the United States.


You can watch it on Public TV. You should.
