I know nothing about the altercation than what is available on line.
It does pose a question. The LPD I have observed and talked to carry tazers as well as pistols.
IF, the oficers responding to the call were armed with tazers wudn't that be a better
action against the knife wielding woman than a bullet?
If I am threatened by a gun, then yes, I will shoot you and not think twice about my action.
If I am threatened by a knife weilding individual I think I can stay from enough away from the
blade to disable the person with the tazer.
Am I wrong?

Gpa I agree with you, although I don't think that's the general consensus around here.

You are completely wrong.

A person with a knife can cover 25 feet of ground before an officer can even draw his firearm up to a shooting position. Even if the gun is already out, just shooting someone doesn't necessarily stop them from continuing toward you. In close quarters it is as dangerous as a gun. You would not be able to stay away from the blade like you believe you could. Numerous studies and police training videos are available.

Also tazers are not anywhere nearly effective enough, especially when having to go through thick clothing, and you only get one shot on a moving target.

You are absolutely wrong sir. You don't bring a Taser to a knife fight. You also don't shoot to disarm or wound.

Speaking from experience I have had a Taser fail in the field....

you just don't use non-lethal force against lethal force unless you have plenty of help with you with multiple options and plenty of time to have a plan which is hardly ever the case with patrol officers.

I'm sure this happened very fast...

Im 100% against the militarization of our police force, but if she was threatening in close quarters with a knife its a good shoot.

Seems like they could've apprehended without shooting.

Sounds like they did what the situation called for. Sucks for the officers that the girl forced to take her life.

Hit her with your keyboard and choke her with your mouse.
