I find it troubling in a way that people are calling for a tazer in this situation, as far as I was trained knife = serious bodily harm or death = firearm, we already have a tool to use in this situation, don't need a tazer.
Though I suppose with that many officers on scene one can deploy a tazer with everyone else providing cover with their firearms.
I agree. The world is going nuts with wanting "less than lethal" or "less lethal" weapons.
Maybe Spiderman could have swung down and tied him up in a big web?
The asshat was wielding two butcher knives.
2 x lethal weapons = response with lethal force. Period.
If they had shot him, "critics" would have been sounding the taser alarm or opining rhetorically, "Why didn't they shoot him in the leg, or shoot the knives out of his hands?"
Enough is enough.
Kind of makes the Police Service Board look stupid that no officers on scene had a taser. For those that do not know they voted down buying them for all Supervisors and left them with the ETF only because they wanted more studies.
The TPS officers saved them allot of embarrassment today.
The uncensored clip from the other side of the car is a bit more dramatic.
Did they ever show that clip on the news?
Both times I saw the clip on tv, it was the shorter clip from the right-side of the car.
I think they did a good job disabling the guy.
I would have loved to see the look on his face as he tried to run away from the cruiser. I'm pretty sure in the raw footage you can hear the camera man let out a slight chuckle when the guy gets pinned.
I heard on the news today and on AM640 that the TPS PSB just approved the purchase of 100 new tasers for frontline officers.
here is the link for that story.
I have tried all I can think of and any SAVE option is always blacked out. I have tried Windows Media Player, Nero Media Player, Real Player, etc. all without success.
Even changing the extension to other common formats (wmv, asf) still allows the file to play but not be saved.
How can I save this video file?
