all i can say is police don't have regular days like everyone else. nearly
everyone they see during a shift is bad news. sure, many will easily say
they should have done this, should have done that, but until you wear
those shoes, you cannot say. when they pull up on a scene they know
there will be trouble and expect it. a thankless job indeed!! i respect
and admire the flint police department. i'd be a fool to attempt second
guessing them.

These are photos of an officer trained in hand-to-hand combat.
The officer figured that due to his size and fighting skills, he could disarm a knife wielding aggressor.

Here is why I am forwarding these on

To all the idiots out there who always say, 'Why did the cops have to shoot her? She only had a Knife. She didn't have to be shot.
To that, I respond, tough crap.

If an officer tells you to drop your weapon, just drop it.

If you're a retard, stupid, on crack, mental or just 'scared' .... too bad. No one deserves what this cop got for just doing his job If you got a knife, drop it or die ... period.

This is vivid proof of how deadly people who are 'only armed with a knife' can be. Some of the public think that officers should try to disarm someone armed with a knife but anyone who has had training in knife fighting will tell you - even if you win you are going to get cut.

[size=18]Keep this in the back of your mind when confronting someone armed with an edged weapon.[/size]

The first rule of being a cop. Go home at the end of your shift. Good eye opening photos Bossman. Shocked ]

The safe distance for a knife wielding subject is now 31 feet ( it was 21). Thats how much distance a subject can move before an officer can get his pistol out and fire. If police ever find themselves in a fair fight, their tactics suck. Police don't have to fight fair, they have to fight to win. Loosing could mean dying. Someone pulls a knife on me, I'm pulling my gun on them. Somebody puts their fists up like they want to fight, I'm going for my baton or spray. I want to end the fight quickly,minimize injury to myself, and most importantly, go home to my family at the end of my shift.

I was just thinking maybe all patrol cars should be equipped with an ACLU member who can step in and handle all the knife wielders. Go get her shes little and her knife aint to long, you get her down and cuffed and well take over from there.

Good point. So the attacker in this case was a mentally unstable drunk lady? Or a man who was strung out on acid?

Now granted my next hypothiechical story is far fetched but picture this. Britney Spears comes to flint and is driving drunk. Gets out weilding a 3 inch knife walking towards these same officers. Do thye shoot her or take out their FAR SUPERIOR WEAPON "Billy Club" and break her arm to disarm her.

I can't wait to see the responses to this one.

I'm not going to pull out my baton ( I don't know of anyplace that still uses billy clubs, those went away with revolvers) on a knife wielding subject. My baton is 26 inches long. Thats closer than I want a knife wielding subject to be. I'm going to the gun.

There are, I'm sure at least 75% of this cities police officers could have came up with a way to subdue this drunk. Even if they had to do some damage to this gal it would be better than death. Unfortunatly it sounds like she got some of the chicken ones, or maby some of the ones that just find it easier to take this direction. This would not have happened to Jack Web...
