OK, I'll play along. Woman with a knife, likely uncomplient. What are your suggestions? Tazer, pepper spray, planed ignoring? Have you ever taken anyone down in order to restrain them? It's just not pretty and you do it the way your trained. Yeah she's 84, but she controlled the knife and took her to the ground. If she was able to have a conversation with the LEO I'm sure it turns out different. These folks need to go home at night just like the rest of us. And FWIW I don't buy the idea that they sign that away because of their job. It definitely makes it harder to go home sometimes, but they have no less a right to. And if someone stands in the way with a weapon, then sometimes they get hurt. What will you do if someone comes at you with a knife. Talk them down?
Bull****, a person could have walked up to her and disarmed her by hand very
easily. There was no reason for that cop to take her down that way, none what-
soever. Sure i wasn't there, but it would have been a whole easier if the moron had
used her brain. Just instances like that would more than likely get me put in jail, if
that had been a member of my family and a cop put them down like that, the gloves
would have been off. No reason, whatsoever.
