^ The best choice for them to make was to back off the pursuit and pick him up later. They chose differently and a young man died for pathetic reasons.  It's sad, but eh, that's what happens in violent cultures.

 

For the most part I agree with you but I wasn't there. When someone is acting that way, it could be irresponsible to let them loose on civilians. Generally, if you will assault police, you couldn't care less about untrained defenseless civilians. That's why we have to be able to trust law enforcement.

 

You have to remember cops are just dudes who like guns, maybe always wanted to wear a badge, they get scared, are aware of their mortality, and have families they want to make it home to. He wasn't de-escalating (going solely buy what I read).

 

I have no problem with American police having more concern for the innocent than the well being of the offender. What if a child is crossing the street nearby and they just let him speed off and in his delirium, he runs the child over? Just a hypothetical, like I said, I wasn't there.

No, you get a grip.  Just because you're pro guns, doesn't make this right.  The guy is dead for no reason.  It's over the top, and it should be a homicide.

No reason at all.

 

He was just sitting on his couch knitting a sweater and the cops murdered him.

 

Its not like he was ramming other vehicles with a truck and using it as a weapon, right?

He didn't deserve to die for that.

I try to keep this in mind as we are discussing this. It's easy to make the call this side of the occurrence. I might have an entirely different perspective on things if I had been there.

i don't think people think he should die for that, its more about "how do we stop this guy from killing somone with a 5,000 pound machine"... this wasn't a punishment move, it was a preventive move...
