Phrase it thus - show the pic of the nutcase with the knife -
Some of the commentary is just ridiculous. "Attacking a cop with a knife shouldn't be a death sentence!"
This is more or less what happened to the first guy RIttenhouse shot. He's running away from an "unarmed guy" who is chasing and threatening him - even though he has a gun - and hears a shot. Or two. He turns and unloads.If Someone had already take a shot at me of if they were threatening to and I could get them first, they would be dead meat.
Watch The body cam video. At the rate the psycho was charging you have about 1.2 seconds to talk to them. Put on the uniform and do the job since you are so all knowing.You're making fun, but it's true.
Have you ever even tried to talk to someone who's trying to kill you? Or is it always shoot first and ask questions later? My guess is that you - and all of you right wing ***s - are SFaAQL people and, frankly, it's disgusting.
When confronted with someone in a murderous rage, your first instinct should be to try to talk to that person. 9 times out of 10 they're just having a bad day, the 10th time is usually that they're mentally disturbed, and those people should be helped instead of having their heads blown clean off.
But if someone is just having a bad day and bursts out of their front door swinging a kitchen knife around and chases you up the sidewalk, YOU could be the reason that person ends up in a better mood, and ends up sleeping better that night, instead of dead. All you have to do is talk to them. Even the attempt itself is usually enough to sooth the most berserk of armed psychotic maniacs and will ensure that two people will be walking away from the confrontation instead of just one.
My motto is: If someone one wants to ax you, ax them first - ax them what's wrong.
All they need is empathy. You don't know what they're going through. When they tried to loot target but ALL the big screen TV's were looted already Did you ever think of that? NO - you only think about yourself. That's enough to send anyone into a downward spiral that ends up with rabidly chasing strangers or cops down the street with a ginsu. One day that could be YOU - I just hope the person you choose to sever their carotid has some empathy and tries to talk to you, instead of willy-nilly defending themselves.
