VIDEO: Head Camera Captures Station Stand-off

Burnsville (Minn.) Police officer Dave Luchsinger had just finished preparing a police report, when a suicidal man entered the police station.

"Drop that knife! Hey! Drop it! Put that down! Put that down," yelled Officer Luchsinger.

The entire scene was captured on the TASER Axon on-body camera system, which has been rolled out in the department. The officer was recently given an award for his handling of the situation, reports CBS News.

It is always good to see something like this - all come out alive. As a law enforcement chaplain I pray for our officers and others involved in law enforcement - because they need it! We need to give them more support and less complaints - COPS are special people. Blessings, Gene Edwards

No argument, Gene. But did the THREE officers need the TASER Axon on-body camera system to accomplish this feat?

Or is this an advertisement for the TASER Axon on-body camera system, "which just rolled out"?
