This comes on the heels of many days of protest over the Police shooting and killing a knife brandishing Guatemalan National who had been threatening the life of a woman minutes before.
There have been calls for the review of Police shoot to kill policay and questions asking why no use a Taser and then this. Another death by Taser. Of course the suspect was drunk as was the knife carrying man, when he was shot.
This goes to show you need to learn the language and listen to the police because they don't play games with crazies.
The protesters are out of line on this one.
In Arizona there is a limit as to how close you let the guy with a knife get before you shoot them, and it's about 15 feet. Any closer and they might get to you before you can react, and if that happens you might be killed.
Some people who have heart problems could die very easy from a Taser attack.
