In fact, according to the survivor and a news article, after the suspect punched and stabbed his victim, he grabbed her in a headlock and held her with a knife. I envision it was in a typical hostage style hold. The officer told him to drop the weapon three times. According to the victim, “Right when (the suspect) flexed, that’s when the officer shot, taking his life and saving mine.”
Frankly, guns are needed and cops should never be the only ones to have firearms. Citizens should arm and protect themselves. That’s the blessing of being an American and living in America. The bottom line is violence is sometimes good and necessary in order to preserve life and liberty.
