Glad he's dead. One less dumb ass in the world
THEY were shot by the police because THEY were suffering from mental illness. This is a tragic situation that shouldn't have ended in death, because that is exactly what they wanted, to be killed. Its terrible that the police was targeted to do the deed for them but there are better ways to subdue and help someone in distress.
For all you who love to pull the trigger and never mind the questions, this disturbed individual did not need to be killed. A taser, as has been mentioned, would have done the trick. Quite honestly, if they had the right training like cops of old, they would have been able to diffuse this situation with words, just like you do with a jumper. I've worked in mental health and have diffused many such situations and I had no weapons what so ever, with guys who were actually much bigger and violent. I've always been able to bring about a more conducive outcome. I've dealt with knives and guns in the past and 'well', I'm still here making comments at nearly 3 in the morning.
80 billion dollars added to defense spending and yet we cant afford to train police officers x'D or affordable health insurance, or free or even minUtley affordable college, etc... you know the things that could actually defend this country more than a suit and a rifle ever could.
Well maybe now you understand Kap
These police officers have mental issues. Look at the video where a police officer made a video telling his story about him having lunch in a restaurant. And listen to his words. He said that he couldn't enjoy his lunch because he was too busy looking over his shoulder. For what?? He also said that he was watching ppl waste to see if they had a gun....huhhhh??? One of the customers noticed how paranoid he was. so the young man walked over to talk to the police officer and asked if he was ok...understand being alert. But paranoid is a no no
Kid says "shoot me" while approaching with a knife. Dumb af. Officers untrained to handle a situation with a taser or spray before resorting to a gun. Dumb af. Fucking stupidity in the air, all around us.
Suicide by police! Suicide effects everyone involved!
Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. If only these idiots rioted over gang violence. I cant blame them though. When society programs people to think of themselves as victims you get angry mobs of idiots looking for oppressors.
That last part tho......
Wasn't Jeffery Dahmer suffering from mental health issues?
Just as you said he could've easily unfolded the knife in a couple of seconds, so to the police officers could've been on him in a couple of seconds with a taser.
It's amazing that whypipo suffer from mental illness all the time , no matter the situation... but Black Men & Women don't... welcome to police brutality and police murders!!
Gee I though tasers were suppose to stop all this killing it is getting worst. Maybe we need less guns for the police and special squads with guns like they have in England & France.
