The Officers Yelled For The Man To Drop The Knife And He Had Plenty Of Time To Do So And Did Not! Police Are Taught To Act In A Deadly Situation And Do Not Have Time To Think About If The Suspect Is Not Meaning To Use The Knife Or Not He Was Told To Drop it And Refused So The Suspect Made The Decision For The Police They Had To Shoot Before He Did Anything That Would Endanger The Public Or Any Other By Standers! I Think They Did What They Had To The Man Would Not Put The Gun Down And They Are Not Taught To Shoot To Wound! Maybe If There Was A Bean Bag Gun Close They Could Have Used That But They Had To Do What They Had To With What They Had It Is Not Like He Was In A House He Was On A City Street A Busy One At That!
