THIS WAS AN INJURY THAT COULD HAVE BEEN PREVENTED.
DON'T BE A HERO...
SHOOT, SHOOT, SHOOT.
The photos are of an officer trained in hand-to-hand combat.
The officer figured that due to his size and fighting skills, he could disarm a knife wielding aggressor.
Here is why I am forwarding these on.
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.
To that, I respond, "tough crap ... shoot'em".
If an officer tells you to drop your weapon, just drop it.
If you're a retard, stupid, on crack, mental or just "scared" ... too bad. No one deserves what this cop got for just doing his job. If you got a knife, then you should die ... period.
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.
