    The officers said they feared for their safety and shot Ravel multiple times. He underwent surgery as a result of his wounds and is expected to survive.

    The officers involved in the shooting have been either re-assigned or are on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.



    Odd, after shooting the attaker multiple times I would susspend the Officers and sentence them to the shooting range until they learn to be better marksmen.

    Man comes at me with a machete like that one to chop me into little pieces, he gonna die!

    What were they using for a duty weapon?
    What have you done to prepare for the end of civilization as we know it?

    This dirtbag thought he was a 'cut' about the rest...guess not!
    The LEO's need some more range time.
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    4 or 6 yrs makes one a veteran?

    There is probably a lot of variables that come into play, but 3 officers against a machete wielding maniac; and he lives?

    "Police said a woman called 911 just after 4 p.m., saying her 35-year-old son, Cole Ravel, was suicidal."

    "He underwent surgery as a result of his wounds and is expected to survive."

    Darn, I wanted to commit suicide by cop and the idiots can't shoot straight. What does a guy have to do?

    More range time for those officers is one suggestion.
