    Do you want a social worker or a police officer when a mental case holds a knife to your throat?

    I want a COP!
    I want action.
    I don't want some social worker to show up and discuss the criminals problems and lack of social skills!

    Thank you for the kind words, but you are a pretty darn good shooter yourself!

    Uhmmmm....according to Sleepy Joe a leg shot should have been the action taken . He clearly had a shot at a leg.:rolleyes:

    Or better yet, the officer should have grabbed his shotgun and popped off a couple warning shots.......

    Goes to show that a couple or three shots to the panel box and it's light out, and there's no reset!!

    I'd seen this video. The look of relief on that poor guys face afterwards..."thank God" says it all.
    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes...right???

    Well done from start to finish from an operational perspective. Likely had good training and practice. The perp was clearly a threat that met all the AOJ standards.
