Bloomberg to ban kitchen knives.
From another article... they posted some Twitter comments...
Hilarious. I love the "shoot to disable" people that believe TV and movie and shootouts are reality.
Exactly, or why not use some mace, maybe rubber bullets.
Good. This guy sucks and could have done a lot of damage. Why put more burdens in the prison system when you can just deal with it.
In an alternate universe, this could have happened:
Police "drop your weapon"
stupid asshole "yes officer"
The guy goes to jail and gets a fine since he didn't start swinging a fucking knife at officers.
Would you want to run up to this guy and spray some mace at him... good luck bro.
Or , just pull the lever and drop the 16 ton weight on him
Since its NYC, pepper spray is the only thing the law abiding are allowed to have on them to protect themselves from these maniacs. What about a stun gun? The ones that shoot out the prongs. That would have made him drop the knife.
at least this guy followed the laws and left his guns at the border
Yep tasering always works...
The cops maced him a good half dozen times, what makes you think in that tiny little brain of yours that a taser would have made him stop? Ive seen videos of people getting tased and they dont even skip a beat. Crazys gonna crazy.
There was one where this naked black guy was trying to break into some Preschool... I think they tasered him like 6 or 7 times with no effect.
Edit this one:
Suicide by cop.
Lil Wayne went crazy
Those things might have worked, however NYPD only gives tasers to sergeants and above. Rubber bullets are highly effective, but obviously nobody there had any sort of crowd control weapon. You have to realize that he is on a busy street full of people. Pepper spray didn't work, so they were likely dealing with an individual that is high on drugs.
So, this is how I see it.
No Sgt with a taser anywhere in the area, nobody on foot patrol has riots gear and a stupid fucker is running around with a knife in a tourist area with thousands of people walking around. The NYPD officers had their hand forced.
Fuck the news. Most people are happy the asshole was dispatched with no harm to others. Stop indulging the tiny minority of rabblerousers who thrive on attention.
Alternately, if the press feels compelled to publish opinions asking why police don't shoot to disable, why not follow up with an actual answer from someone in law enforcement? Edjumacate some readers, be useful.
Chose this one because of the camera mans commentary.... "fucking white boys maaaaaann...." I guess about 10-12 shots.
Hear this at the end."That wasn't a justified kill.. at all"
Sgt and above have tasers. Cars have riot shields in the back. Didn't seem like they could contain this guy to use them anyway even if they did take the time to get them out. I can't remember us ever using rubber bullets. Seems like they did what they had to.
That many shots is pretty easy to understand. It looked like 6 to 8 officers on foot by the time the shooting happened and if he charged and they all fired out of instinct, that would be 6 to 8 shots if all shot once not accounting for some of them firing twice quickly. Most of them might have gone for a disable shot, all it would take was one guy putting a shot on target for the kill shot.
Obviously the racist police harmed the innocent man who was just
practicing his right to bear knives. Fire everyone and sue the city!
Hopefully we will get a good Springsteen song out of this tragedy.
I'd love to see a video of this guy getting maced
They should have called in Paul Newman
Throw a net over the savage and drag him off to be recycled.
Stick to what you know. Like tim foil hats.
