    Well the article was brief, but the gun in th pic looked like it could have been real. I don't blame the cops one bit. They're looking out for their safety.

    Because everyone walks around with MP or G1 Megs pointed at police and refusing to drop it. Not so much an issue of the orange plug as it is what you do with him in your possession. Oh, and drugs probably should be taken into consideration, too.

    This...

    Do you know how many people in NYC decide to end their lives with the help of the NYPD? Trust me it's more than one would like to believe and the officers that kill the stupid asshole suffers in the end.

    You don't ever point anything at a cop. That should be common sense.

    So... why do they kill people? Couldn't they just use other ammunition or shoot at other parts of the body, so people don't die immediately?

    I don't get why, when a cop shoots at someone, it's always a kill shot. Aim for the legs or a arm. That can actually heal. Your heart can't.
    But, A cop's gotta do what a Cop's gotta do. If you where a cop, and you saw a gun pointing at you, would you pull the trigger?

    Just a bit easier to hit center mass. Also, why take the chance of wounded guy still being able to use the weapon?

    Don't confuse reality with Hollywood. In real life, being shot anywhere is potentially fatal nor does anybody have the true marksman ability of a Hollywood gunman. People shoot the torso because its the largest mass and the easiest bit to aim for.

    Happens here all the time.

    They could still shoot.

    If someone is running at you with a knife and you have a knife where would you stab them? In the leg so you can still be killed? Or do you for a place a lot more lethal so that there's no way of getting up?

    I denounce any form of death but the cops made the right choice.

    I adore the innocent ignorance that abounds.
    Why do they have to kill?
    Why do they even have to use a weapon?
    why do they even pay attention to a person with a gun?

    What are the cops supposed to do, kids?

    why don't you gripe to doctors and nurses, too?
    gee doc, did ya have to use a scalpel for that heart transplant...that cut him.


    really. what is so hard to grasp (beyond the politically correctness clouding your judgment) about an altercation between a man with unknown intentions and a cop with a family and who gets his income for protecting the people?

    Just to ruin your day and stubborn attachment to all cops being jack the ripper with a semi-automatic, MOST cops try to talk suspects down from a standoff- if they have the chance.
    But when a man waves a weapon and the outcome is not looking good, cops have to end the situation swiftly.

    Sure, to most of us mortals, a shot from a .45 or a 9mm in the leg or arm will take the fight out of us. but cops don't have the luxury of being that precise in split second engagements.

    Center of Mass= Suspect Incapacitated. if he dies, well, it is NOT the cop's fault.

    People are so overly concerned it seems with the perpetrator's rights and feelings these days.
    He didn't have to die.....well, actually, yes, he should. walking around with a real or fake weapon and terrorizing folks is an open, even the most liberal loon can read it, invitation for pain or possibly, death.

    And for the record, MOST, if not ALL cops want the idiot who seeks suicide by cop to LIVE.
    wanna know the wacky reason why???
    To FUCKING SPITE THEM.

    There's something to be said for having an unarmed police force(for the most part), like we have here in √Čire. For one thing, it pretty much rules out these 'suicide by cop' situations.

    No there isn't. I'd prefer a police force that can protect my ass.

    Looks real enough to me, from a distance I'd imagine even more so.
    Guessing a cop in that situation who second-guesses is more times than not going to end up dead or badly hurt.

    Guy who pointed it at the cop should've known better.

    From a cop.......
    1.You aim center mass off the target.
    2.You don't shoot to kill or wound
    3.You shoot to stop the threat.......Killing the target/subject/threat is the best way to stop them.

    You don't shoot the appendages cause they can sue you for maiming them. You shoot to stop the threat which usually means they die.

    Cop lives to go home to family bad guys die!
