    I agree that it appears, in all respects, to be justified on the part of the officer; indeed, it appears (especially considering that we saw only a portion of the cruiser's videotape of the incident) that the officer showed remarkable restraint for a long period of time. During that time, all the young man had to do was stop resisting, and he would almost certainly be alive today.

    The attitude expressed by the father of the young man is an extreme example of what many teachers see in schools across this country..."My child can do no wrong."

    Tragic for all involved, but I think the officer was completely justified.

    That's one of the situations that worries me the most. Grappling, and unable to release the suspect to hit your emergency button, or grab your knife, or draw your gun, because releasing a hand will give him the opportunity to kill you. So you hold on, wait, and try to live a few more seconds.

    That Trooper showed a lot of discipline by staying clinched with that guy. A lot of people would've tried to jump up and make space, which might have given him a nice clear shot.

    It doesn't matter what the father says, this guy is 100% in the clear. He might have a rough time if he were a CHP Trooper in San Francisco, but this happened in Ohio. He'll be fine.
    Rest In Peace Dad! I love you!!!

    would it be different if the cops parents were sueing to bad guy, because it could have gone that way. The cop did what he had to do.
