Cops Kill Armed Suspect in Monterey Park : MyFoxLA.com
I am so fucking sick of this sentiment. Strictly base don this guy's actions in the video, he absolutely asked to be shot.
You don't have the right to brandish a weapon of any kind to anyone, let alone armed police officers. Even regular people are allowed to kill you if you approach them with a weapon drawn and they feel as if their life is in danger. Why it should be different for a cop? Should he just let the guy with the crowbar go to town on him? Yeah, sure. Or maybe let the dog go and get the dog hurt? Not worth it either. I say shoot the fucking cocksucker when you have your weapon drawn and he comes at you with a weapon after being pepper sprayed, but then again I like living so what do I know?
One of my best friends' fathers was a cop who, along with his partner, was shot and killed iduring a regular traffic stop. What the justice-cryer tweens here don't realize is these guys literally put their life on the line every day and you never know when today will be your last. Bottom line- if you want to live, don't attack a person who has a gun drawn with a fucking crowbar no matter who it is. Failure to realize this very apparent dynamic relationship may result in bullets ripping through your body. It might be their job to serve and protect, but when shit gets real your #1 job is to protect your life first and foremost. I would have shot him in that situation too.
