At some point, the woman confronted them with a knife, and both officers shot their weapons, authorities said.

And if we complain about this, we’re anti-Police.

Virtually all uniformed police officers in major metropolitan departments are required to pass basic marksmanship tests, yet they will assert it’s not possible to aim at an arm or leg instead of more lethally-vulnerable areas, even when they are less than 20ft away from their victims, as they undoubtedly were in this case.

The problem is that, with few apparent exceptions, the default policy of police departments is shoot to kill, regardless of circumstance or actual degree of danger to themselves.

Unless the perp is white. Or alligator.

Do you remember the video of a clearly unstable shirtless white male with an AR-15 style weapon being confronted by police? It was in a street in some town. They talked to him for 10-15 minutes, and let him walk away unharmed and with his weapon?

The officer(s) will be fired…and immediately find employment in another department.

“Some questioned why non-lethal options weren’t used in the case.”

I don’t know if you’ve ever seen this video before, but can you imagine if this guy was black and in a Southern state?

In another article , the police ALLEGE she was holding a knife .

“The officers immediately performed first aid,” but fire medics arrived and determined she had died, the police department said in a statement Sunday afternoon.

Did they? Or does immediately mean after rolling her on her stomach and handcuffing her, and then maybe securing the scene and who knows what else? That’s usually what it means.
