The cop-haters are at it again over a "student" (must describe perp as something other than a drunken knife-wielder) who was shot and killed by police the other day.
Less-than-lethal was attempted with bean-bags but when the druken knife-wielder (I mean "young promising student" who's friends say that he loved puppies) continued to be a threat the police shot him dead.
The news last night kept wondering out loud why tazers weren't used. I kept wondering if a news anchor's life was in danger would they try an unreliable non-lethal weapon to stop the threat or would they shoot the person dead themself.
Look for editorials and calls for police to carry teddy bears and feelings journals to deal with violent criminals.
