    Angry LAPD brass vows to investigate fatal shooting of day laborer

    This is ridiculous! The police officer in this story shot a man who was drunk, had a knife and wouldn't put it down, had been threatening people with that knife, then raised it above his head and lunged at the officer! And now people are mad that the cop defended himself and THEM and shot the drunk.!

    "The officer who did this should be subject to discipline and a thorough investigation," said Juan Flores, 39, a cook at a downtown restaurant who knew Jamines. "We want to know, is he on vacation or is he fired?"

    Sounds like a well-justified shoot to me. If there was blood on the knife I'm sure the officer saw it. If anyone ran at me with a knife, especially a bloody one, I'd have shot them more than twice.

    "Killing a drunk isn't right," said Juan Jaminez, also a day laborer.
    It is if he runs at me with a bloody knife. Being drunk does not give someone the right to assault me with a knife.

    I just don't understand how people can view these situations like it was the officers fault?! And try to make an excuse for a drunk man!

    For some people, lunging at some one with a knife isn't violent, just normal behavior.

    I'm sure these quotes were originally said in spanish. Maybe something got lost in translation.

    Anyone who doubts the lethality of a knife attack can read this link:
    http://www.wfaa.com/news/health/Reha...102395719.html

    Mas Ayoob has often written about how police have confronted violent knife-wielding attackers and survived sometimes with horrific injuries. It is a known fact that an experienced knife fighter is easily as lethal as any gunfighter if he is within arms' length and knows where to stab or slash......I think this case will get exonerated in court eventually....

    Oh absolutely. Knives can cause far more damage than any pistol-caliber, and more than a lot of rifle rounds.

    Yep, I live in Mesa, AZ off of Val Vista and Southern, 3 miles up the road off of Gilbert and Broadway there are always like 30-50 day laborers just hanging out on the corner waiting for work, and if a police officer pulls into the gas station on the corner, they all slowly make their exit...

    But he was an immigrant! Don't you know that an immigrant is exempt from being shot in self defense?

    Seriously, that is what all the rioting is about. The drunk with a knife was an immigrant and now the other immigrants in that area are using that as an excuse to riot.

    Interesting that none of the news reports I have seen have so far mentioned whether he was here legally or not. I have my guess.

    Being an immigrant, legal or not, does not give cause to nor does it justify, intoxication and lethal threatening behavior.

    From what I see it was a good shoot. If the "immigrants" don't like that then perhaps they should modify their behavior so that they don't get shot.

    I don't think any officer - or cc'er - in Alabama would have had any problems with defensive shooting in this case.
