Perhaps that is what they were doing. Maybe they were killing time in order to wait for an officer with a rubber bullet gun to arrive on scene. However, the fact that the suspect charged at the officers with a deadly weapon forced their hands.

Am I missing something, where does it say he was mentally handicap? He could have been on a suicide mission for all we know - all you are doing is speculating. The cops reacted with the tools they had available (at the time) to subdue the situation with minimal impact / harm to the civilians around.

I'm all for preserving human life, but when that life is trying to take innocents with them they deserve what's coming.

I dont know if its just me but it looks pretty crazy when you're hopping around New York city with a knife, disobeying tens of officers pointing guns.
Whether he was mental just that day or has been for all his life, his killing wasnt justified specially with 10+ shots to his body.

What harm was he going to do with all those cops around... the only civilian that might have been hurt would be some idiot invading his personal space by coming up for a close camera shot.

He may have done something before but at that time you'd have to have a crystal ball to know he was going to harm someone. Do you own such an object?

Hmm, have to say I'm with JD on this one. I've always understood police forces use standard NATO calibre hollow-point (9x17?). Intent is they mushroom out and lodge inside the target. Obviously shooting in cities, etc, they have to be careful of through-and-through wounds where the bullet ends up hitting dumb-asses standing in behind the target with their IPhones out.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but general infantry in armed forces use full metal jackets ~ these are designed to pass right through the target with the intent not to kill, but to disable and take the opponent out of battle.

Police officers are governed by the use of force policy and are given discretion to make these decisions especially in the heat of the moment. While you are entitled to an opinion based on what you saw in a video, you weren't there, nor do you have the qualifications or training to make that call whether it was justified or not.

And how was it a setup? You refer to knocking the bike over. Well, in this case, the officers used nonlethal force AND tried to block him in with a police cruiser, but he managed to get away from all of that.

He came within three feet of an officer when charging before he was shot. What was the cop supposed to do? Drop his gun and wrestle the knife away by hand, all the while hoping that the suspect doesn't get lucky and managed to slit a major artery? No. In such a case, an officer is trained to protect his life, along with those of everyone else before looking after that of the suspect.

Can anyone with police training (RCMP or PD) comment on whether there's training regarding this kind of thing to physically take down the suspect rather than use their firearm, or use of the firearm the only way to take them down? And I mean real PD or RCMP training, not your opinion, or what you heard from your family, or what you think you learned from a video online, or what you think you know now from a few weeks of training in a self defence class.

No, but apparently you do.

You admit he looks crazy jumping around with a knife (crazy enough to be OBVIOUSLY mentally ill), but not crazy enough to harm people? There's some holes in your thought process.

As I said before, I question the amount of bullets being used, but the police didn't "set this up" to go murder someone. Thats fucking nonsense.

A knife in close quarters is the worst thing you can encounter.


If someone comes at you with a knife, run the fuck away.

Honestly, it doesn't surprise me that much. Ever since Dziekansky (sp?) and a few other tazer incidents where tazed people ended up dead...tazers have been on probation with a lot of policing agencies.

I find it kind of amusing in a terrible way: tazers are a non-lethal alternative to firearms. When you don't want to actually shoot someone, you taze them. But with repeated tazes and a compressed chest (from restraining someone and holding them down in order to arrest them) it can lead to complications like heart and/or lung failure.

I get it. I do. In certain situations tazers kill people. But I'll be honest; I'd much rather have cops armed with tazers that in some certain situations can result in fatalities than not having the tazers and simply having everyone armed with handguns. The people who are trying to (or succeeding in) get tazers banned are also resulting in these higher numbers of gunshot fatalities by law enforcement officers. Plain and simple.


Also, CiC, we face some problems. A little while ago, I was taking the bus downtown and (surprise surprise) ended up going through the DTES. In the DTES there is a very interesting mix of drunks, drug users, people with mental issues, and everything else you could possibly imagine.

If someone comes up to you agressively and starts accosting you, the reaction to all three would be very different. You can't treat a drunk the same way you treat a tweaker; the results are completely different. So how do you know who's got what problem? Should we start tattooing peoples' IQs and problems on their forehead? Make them wear a certain kind of clothes?

There is no easy solution. Sadly, rules are inflexible and will only work for the majority. Not everyone understands the rules or why they exist. This is the nature of rules, however: that everyone should be treated equally. We don't treat histories, we treat actions. And if it was me (30-year old white guy with a beard) running through Times Square with a knife swiping at people and charging at officers, I would be just as dead.

Just. As. Dead.

wow, some you guys are just oblivious and naive. Put yourself in a situation where you are NOT a police officer and just a civilian, and a stranger high on drugs was coming after you with an 11 inch knife. Would you choose to try to battle him out with a knife, or would you choose a gun? Now as a Police officer, at the end of the day, you are going home to your family, and serve so that innocent people/the pubic are going home to their families. The last thing you thinking about when someone is threatening to take their life, or the life of innocent bystanders, is to try to "wing" a suspect. As a police officer, you want to bring a gun to a knife fight, pure and simple. You shoot to stop the threat. If a male is non responsive to multiple attempts of pepper spray, what do you think his mindset is at? Who knows how high he is, and you definitely don't want to get so close to try to use a tazer or physical force to disarm him.

Why are people obsessing over the number of shots fired? This isn't the movies where one shot instantly kills a man.

The NYPD are issued 9mm semi-auto handguns (Glock 19, Sig P226 DAO, S&W 5946). 9mm is a poor man stopper. They are trained to continue firing into the centre of mass until the target is no longer a threat. With drugged individuals and poor accuracy in high stress situations, it's not uncommon for many shots to be ineffective.

That what I have been taught and why I had mentioned it a few pages back. I did some forensic ballistic analysis training and was taught that very key difference.

9mm nato is 9x19, 380acp is 9x17.

Yes right before my post, #57 the linked article mentions...
October 2008, he was taken to Bellevue Hospital Center for a psychiatric evaluation
You'd have to be pretty special to be taken to a mental hospital for evaluation. Im sure more news will come to light about this.

So this is how you want your standard of society to be, if someone looks crazy, take no chances and execute them. Fine, thats your opinion.

Like I said, they positioned themselves to be confronted, not back away for other methods to be used, how hard is that to understand. Everyone here has this "American cowboy" mentality, which is really worrying about the people in this city.


Take this local video for example, the cops have positioned themselves to confront the suspect. With RevScene's majority logic, was he to have a kitchen knife, basically everyone in this thread so far would be okay with his murder.

My standard of society doesn't include you, Arash.

What does your standard of society include? Hugs for felons? Gentle caresses for child molesters?
