Read it again and remember the entire situation. Two cops. One is corner and says he never felt threatened during the situation. He is not the one who shot the man. The other cop, his partner:

"It was the second time Marin was involved in a shooting. In October 2009, he shot and killed a knife-wielding man who stabbed his girlfriend and a neighbor, according to published reports at the time. Marin joined the Houston Police Department in 2007."

I would say it has nothing to do with incompetence but most people like to throw around insults as if they are good at everyone job on the planet. Seems like the guy has some unresolved issues when it comes to anyone that is trying to stab someone. If anyone is incompetent though, it would have to the psychologist that cleared him for duty after the first shooting. Not saying that person is, but if you are going to start throwing around insults like you are perfect, at least make it semi logical.


So if there were 2 police officers, and 1 guy in a wheelchair.. and only ONE officer is trapped in the corner... You know what the other cop could have done to stop the situation?

Grab the wheelchair by the handles. Pull it back. Toss the guy OUT of the wheelchair.. He's not going to go anywhere.

People are always talking about gun violence in America and it seems our worse offenders are our policemen.

Heh, I didn't say Italy was better, from the power abuse standpoint. The fact is: America is just... worse, at everything. They ****ing shoot a handicapped person in a wheelchair, I don't see how things could be worse than that.

So you're not saying that Italy is better, just that America is worse.

Did you even think about what you were typing???

I mean that is a comment I expect to see as a Bushism or something similar...

The one that was trapped was not the one that shot and also not the one with the issues that make him snap when it comes to a stabbing threat. Nobody is saying what he did was right, but people are saying he was just trigger happy or some other retarded excuse for it. The cop(not the one that was stuck) should have not been on the streets with the unresolved issues. Every time a police office kills someone, they are suppose to be taken off the streets and evaluated to make sure the experience didn't mess them up in some way. Seems like whoever cleared this cop for duty failed at their job. What the cop did was wrong but suggesting he could have done something else when he clearly has issues is a bit of a moot point.

Sorry, us civilized folks like to also hold a person responcible for their own actions. Messed up or not, the cop should know his limitations. If you can't handle stressful events without first shooting, you shouldn't be in the line of duty.
This was a horrible tragedy caused by a very stupid and horrible person. They didn't think anything through, and instead, opted to use what power they have to end a life when none was in harm.
Also, if a wheelchaired double amp ends up trapping you.... quit your ****ing job. This whole story is one big pathetic wtf.

So isn't that what he was saying? He was saying the other cop should have grabbed the wheelchair and pulled it away / thrown the guy out of it. But instead he grabs a gun and shoots him.

What Shakey says is right, if you can't handle stressful situations without shooting someone quit your ****ing job. And also how the **** does a wheelchair guy trap a full grown cop? One has a very small range of motion, can't really lunge or chase after you the other has both his legs and arms and can easily get out of the way.

That's true and I agree 100%. However, we have millions of police officers who work throughout our country and it's just the 1% of the nut cases that get all the publicity. I'm not a fan of cops but most of them do an excellent job.

One of the big issues (and not sure if it applies in this case) is that a lot of vets are coming back, leaving the service, and go for their local LEO jobs.

The problem is a lot of them end up having PTSD that went undiagnosed, and they don't seek help. So they end up snapping at some point and the results are something like this. Some of the other results you've seen in the occupy movement. A lot of the LEO's that go out to those protests that are vets are the ones that snap and end up causing the things to go south.

I'm not blaming them for wanting employment, but I am saying that if they were properly diagnosed and not allowed to work these positions then it wouldn't happen as often.

What sort of mealy-mouthed phrase is "fatally shot". They killed the guy, pure and simple.
