Obviously a suicide by cop, Im glad the officer is OK, sure didn't appear to be a very tactical move on his part, lucky to be alive.

Pure restraint these officers had. Absolutely professionalism. I don't know if I could do that. After that crash was witnessed I'd have wanted to start shooting him the minute he exited the vehicle with that machete & knife. Tough decisions these days with every social media Tom, Dick, & Harry crawling up the sphincter hole.

I agree, what great restraint was used by the Officers involved. They gave him every chance to surrender. If he was as mentally ill from all the stress he had, apparently he wanted a SBC. Good job.

It's too bad you have to give them every chance to surrender. Many times even to the point it puts officers in danger. It's do that or have some liberal nut bag demanding your job.

Do you all ever wonder what is happening on the other side? cops do not have to shoot to kill...really what if it was your family member?
