"Although I have no issue with officers or anyone else carrying a knife for SD, I have a question for officers who do carry knives.
In a lifetime of reading news stories I have seen stories of BGs getting whacked with batons, beaten with fists, sprayed, tazed, shot with a primary, shot by a BUG, but I honestly don't ever remember reading about an arrestee being stabbed during a scuffle.
Have any of the participants here actually cut a suspect, held one at knife point, have first hand knowledge of an officer needing to use a knife? Just curious. And, if you don't have first hand knowledge of it, are there any good documented news stories about it happening?"
I know a guy that got physical with a suspect and after ending up on the ground he was kind of stuck underneath the guy with his gun facing the ground and could not pull it out. He was able to place his left arm around the suspect's neck and control him but he said he was so freaking tired, so he pulled out his knife and placed the tip against the guy’s neck and told him if he moved he was going to stab his neck. The suspect froze and did not move until back up arrived.
