VIDEO: Deadly OIS In Calif. Station's Fleet Lot
Inglewood (Calif.) Police shot and killed a sword-wielding man, after he smashed the windows of eight police vehicles parked at the agency's headquarters.
Charles Curl, 46, was shot and killed Saturday night after allegedly using an 18-inch sword that was thicker and heavier than a machete, reports City News Service.
The shooting was captured by a passerby and broadcast by KTLA. In the footage, the man can be seen walking toward an officer who crouches behind the door of a squad car.
The man was likely mentally ill, reports the Los Angeles Times.

This perp may have been a loon, but I would not second guess these Officers. The KTLA left leaning news media act like their IA. California lawmakers should put these types in mental wards instead of spending money micro-chipping firearms.

You can tell the bias of the news team just by the intro. I don't care if he "was bi-polar, and on his meds". You start walking toward me with a weapon, shots fired! The one officer standing in front of him in the video, was well withing the "fatal funnel".
