First and foremost, thank God the officer can live to tell his children of his bravery against the bad guy. Now this is to me an example of equal force. The officer doing his job serving a warrant to then be met surprisingly buy a threat of violence and that threat was met equally. In cases like this one has to applaud the officer for doing his job the right way! But killing a man who poses no threat..! Kicking a man in the face breaking his jaw on camera on a routine stop. Choking a man to death on the side walk. Or shooting a man in the back several times as he ran and then planting a weapon type object near his dying body to cover one's track isn't honorable policing. These images of abuse only fuels the the already existing hatred toward police officers from criminals to be stupid. Such as is the case of the two New York officers ambushed and killed. There needs to be trust built between us and them, officers and the community. There will always be bad guys no matter how much trust

And people wonder why agencies have MRAPS and full auto weapons?
