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.

    ...then you typed that last line
    the rest of it IS the reason for the rioting and violence....'wrong' is just such a subjective construct there
    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.
