But this was a knife, not a potentially automatic weapon, so I'm not sure why the need for multiple shots from multiple weapons vs a single shot...and I'm not sure why aiming for the abdomen doesn't accomplish the desired goal of stopping him from further advancement. However, I'm not an officer nor have I ever had any military training nor really been around guns much...
    I don't know the answers either but one point you missed is that once the first shot is fired, adrenalin kicks in and the thought process changes. Training or not, this happens.

    I dunno.
    shooting for the leg is too hard, especially a moving target where it's easier to miss.

    why can't they peacefully protest? scream and holler, get agitated, show emotion. but what good does it do to burn/loot businesses, especially in their own neighborhood. that's just stupid and only hurts them more.

    did it help to physically attack the police? no. if anything this is going to enrage the police more and cause them to be more on edge and with an itchy trigger finger, or ready to physically counter when they are attacked again. this doesn't help the situation.

    and, like other protests, I'm sure the vast majority DID protest peacefully....but this is a very emotionally charged situation and some have less ability to control their emotions in these situations.....wrong to damage property, sure...but I can still understand how it happens.........attack the police, well certainly not good, but I don't know how many were involved in that or how that part started

    Some people constantly attack people for attacking the police , but never attack the police for attacking the people

    Always justifiying this bs. Every damn time, even when it is seemingly cut and dry.

    this is unacceptable, 1,000 people. there is a lot of looting and rioting, that should not be allowed, that should be condemned, that does not help the end goal.

    well, we could adopt the same mindset you have on immigration where you say 'if they hadn't done what they did, this wouldn't be happening'

    if the police hadn't shot a man on the street, this wouldn't be happening

    yes, if that man hadn't been approaching them with a knife they wouldn't have felt a need to shoot

    but had they gotten the information the man's family had told officials he was having mental/anxiety issues they might have handled the situation differently

    .......this chicken and egg debate could keep going

    sounds good. since I said both sides in immigration have blame, lets do that here. which is what I said when I first commented on this story.

    there is also no excuse for the rioting and violence, that is also wrong.

    ManRam, if only your political knowledge were 1/10th as good as your basketball. He's hiring more cops because NYC is infested with crime. You don't live here but I'll invite you to come to the Bronx and some areas in Brooklyn for the week. Come talk to me when you can make it out alive.

    Be more diligent about disciplining officers harshly for doing crap like that.
