This officer figured, due to his size and fighting skills, he could disarm a knife wielding aggressor.
To all the idiots out there who always say, “Why did the cops have to shoot him? He only had a (insert your choice of weapons here, i.e. knife, bat, club. whatever) he didn’t have to be shot”, you should look at the photos.
If an officer tells you to drop your weapon, just drop it.
If you’re a “protestor,” stupid, on crack, mental or just “scared” … too bad. No one deserves what this police officer got for just doing his job.
This is vivid proof of how deadly people who are “only armed with a knife” can be.
Some of the public think that officers should try to disarm someone armed with a knife but anyone who has had training in knife fighting will tell you even if you win, you are going to get cut.
Keep this in the back of your mind when confronting someone armed with an edged weapon.
If you are +/- 21 feet away from a criminal with a knife, you are potentially 3 seconds away from being cut !
