    don't bring a knfe......

    ........to a gun fight. A Mesa Az. man who, according to his own mother who he lived with, was suicidal, approached police officers menacingly and they responded by drawing their firearms and shooting the suspect. the suspect has since died. do you think the officers should have tasered him instead?

    Negative. Approach me with a knife and the Taser will be the last thing on my mind.

    Tasers arent the end all that everyone thinks they are. The probes can miss, and then you have a worthless piece of plastic trying to fend off a knife.

    Anyone that refuses to drop a knife when they have guns held on them and are told to do so, have nothing good in mind.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I don't know of any departments that mandate use of the Taser in a lethal force situation.

    A Taser is not a substitute for lethal force.

    also sounds a bit like suicide by cop to me.

    Not to sound cliche, but an untrained person with a knife can cover a 10ft distance and severly injure, or kill in less than 2 seconds. Trained, even less.

    Close range, knives are far more dangerous than firearms, and the LEOs in question were 100% right in ending this the way that they did.

    Unfortunately, they now have to live with the fact that they killed someone who didn't have the courage to finish it themselves, very unfortunate, very tragic, and very traumatic to the officers.

    I would have done the exact same thing, his right to be depressed and have emotional problems ends when he threatens someone elses life with a deadly weapon, they were a hundred percent correct in their actions

    It sounds like a win for society. Too bad the officers will be feeling crappy for a while.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    That is not necessarily so.
