I’m sure this video above will be deleted when all the comments on the person taking the video standing their like an idiot videotaping and telling cops how to do their job flood in.
First up, shooting the attacker might have resulted in the victim being hit as well. Hitting someone with a baton isn’t as quick and simple as you’d think, and a baton is really just used to bring people down – this guy is already on the ground, back to the officers. A blow to the head with the baton is against regulation in most cases.
In short, good restraint while surrounded by not so smart people making a 15 second video instead of, you know, stepping in to stop the stabber.
Oh well. Page views.<
