    Rodney King happened because of what you did not see on the video.

    They tazered him, and nothing happened. They freaked. The tazer malfunctioned, but they had no way to know that. He then charged the officers, and they thought he was high on PCP. Not excusing the rest, but that is why it happened.

    With the level of training what it is, or more correctly what it is not, shooting the guy with the knife is the only option.

    Which sucks for all involved but will get no **** from me. I would prefer that a tazer be used there, but if that's just not practical the that's what happens when a dumbass pulls a knife on a cop. Shoot the retard.

    I watched this video when I was a security guy back in Yosemite in the 90's. It scared the **** out of me. I thought, "thanks for showing me how easy it is to get killed and providing NO training to prevent it."

    I remember the video of the thai policemen getting killed by a guy with a knife while trying to shoo the guy. And some kung fu dude who really sucked.

    The scariest thing was the prison inmates practicing killing cops by stabbing that area on the shoulder. Who the **** taught them that?

    I got to see this video back in the 90's as well when I was in Charleston going through ASF as taught by the Marines.

    Good stuff and scary.

    Remember here awhile back the pictures that circled around of that police officer who got sliced up really bad?

    Moral of the story kids;

    Shoot the bastard.

    K, do NOT take this as my agreement.

    Most departments have a "no body hold" rule. So called "come-along" holds are in reality submissions. In the gym, where people do not want something broken, they work well. In the real world, people resist.

    When they resist something gets broken.

    When something gets broken, people sue.

    For a very long time, police have been looking for a "Vulcan Neck Pinch" that will subdue with no harm. Pepper Spray was held in such esteem, now the Tazer.

    Because the people above them think this is a "safe" way to subdue someone, they mandate it.

    Hence, we get things as this.....

    The reason there are lawsuits is because there are cops beating the **** out of people when there is no need, morons resisting when there is no need, and lawyers looking for a way to make a living.

    It really isn't that easy to sue cops. I hate to break it to you guys. There have been several instances of them killing mentally ill people in this county in the last few years, and nothing happened. The truth is that most people understand it's a shitty job for that reason, and courts definitely understand.
