    deadly force sounds appropriate to me. Guy on PCP, gets in fist fight with cop. If cop can get to his gun mofo should get shot. Cop should get a medal or at least a cold beer.

    Looks a little iffy, the way the guy backed off there at the end, but judgement call. I probably would have blasted.

    That looks questionable...like maybe the guy was starting to comply. He may have been able to go with his asp or tazer if they carry them. Its hard to give an accurate opinion of what i would do...i wasn't there, and the video doesn't show much.

    I love this:
    This tool obviously has no clue. I know for a fact that the officer would be trained to react accordingly if he truly felt his life was in danger, or if he believed the suspect had a weapon or some sort. If either was the case, and he in fact did feel he was in danger of death or serious bodily injury...his actions are justified. Even if the guy acted like he had a weapon, and turned out not to...its still a good shoot.

    I would have tazed, but honestly, any fool approaches someone with a gun deserves to get shot.

    Oh yeah they do something...maybe not enough in this situation, but i couldn't tell you that anymore than i could tell you if the officer involved believed his life was in danger. I can guess...

    That's one small ass fucking video player. Sure leaves out a lot of details.
    I'd say it was justified, but just barely.

    Justified, once you make the video larger you can see the officer get's clocked quite a few times.

    Maybe we should just ask him (the crazy guy that did a hit and run, had a passenger bail out, and then he bailed out of a moving car and proceeded to swing at a cop) nicely. :hsugh:
