    Another fatal shooting in St. Louis

    St. Louis police fatally shoot knife-wielding suspect | Fox News

    St. Louis police fatally shot a knife-wielding suspect Tuesday after they said the suspect refused to put the weapon down and tried to attack them, Fox2Now.com reported.

    The incident took place about 2.6 miles from the Ferguson protests, and occurred at about 12:30 p.m. The suspect reportedly entered a convenience store and showed the store owner his knife and the two got into a dispute.

    St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson told Fox2Now.com that the man yelled at officers “shoot me now” several times. This account was reportedly backed up by several witnesses.

    This one, on the surface, looks pretty cut and dried but in light of what is happening there already I fear that it will only stoke the fires.

    Would a stun gun have subdued the man with a knife?

    PETALUMA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a naked man who was running on a Northern California freeway resisted an officer's attempt to arrest him and had to be subdued with a stun gun.

    The California Highway Patrol said 25-year-old Alexander Leonard of Hawthorne, California was taken into custody Sunday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs and resisting arrest.

    Sgt. Ross Ingels told the San Francisco Chronicle (Naked suspect blocking Hwy 101 in Petaluma gets Tasered, arrested - SFGate ) that Leonard was driving erratically in northbound lanes of Highway 101 in Petaluma before crashing into a guardrail. He said Leonard then got out of a rented pickup truck, took off his clothes and ran on the freeway.

    Ingels said when Leonard refused an officer's demand to stop, the officer used a stun gun on him.

    The problem may be the police training. Police are not taught to use non-lethal means of subduing upset or belligerent individuals.

    He yelled at officers 'shoot me now' several times. Well, they obliged him. You don't yell 'shoot me now' at anyone who is holding a gun pointed at you, unless you want to be shot now.

    The result would then indicate that the man with the knife was in control of the situation. Exactly the opposite of what is supposed to happen.

    The difference is, that man wasn't armed, and stun guns don't always work to stop someone.

    He was in control of the situation. Anyone who illegally wields a weapon when police have guns pointed at them is in control of the situation. It's up to them if they want to be shot by the police.

    One less idiot, I can't understand why people get upset when we lose another would-be loser? Let's just hope we got him before he did any breeding.

    ". LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson says officers warned a suspect multiple times to put down his weapon before they shot and killed him.

    The shooting happened around 1 p.m. Tuesday at McLaran and Riverview. Police say the suspect tried to rob the Six Star Market convenience store with a knife. Chief Sam Dotson said the store owner let the man leave the store. A St. Louis City Alderwoman witnessed the man walking erratically around and called police.

    When officers arrived, the suspect refused to put down weapon despite multiple verbal command by police. Chief Sam Dotson says the man yelled at officers “shoot me now” several times. Witnesses also confirmed what the man said.

    Dotson says the man continued to refuse the officer’s commands, approached within three to four feet of them with the knife in an attack posture."

    So there is some reason the police could not have tried a stun gun before using lethal force? Seems like poor police training.
