[QUOTE=Sasquatch;4524548]I don't know the rules of engagement for LEO but something just don't add up here.
1. Talk of a police dog but I never saw the police dog released before the shooting.
[/Quote} I wouldn't release a dog on a knife weilding subject.
Taser is a less lethal option, knife is lethal force, you use lethal force on to answer lethal force.
2. I would have expected the police to use their taser, seems like it's their weapon of choice lately, but not here.
He appeared to be moving laterally.There was an officer from the white patrol car on the left(A Deputy?) I cannot account for, maybe there was an officer in that direction that could not be accounted for or seen? Another thing is if he still had the knife in his had and refused to drop it and refuse to comply they had to prevent him form turning a stationary 3 ring circus into a roving 3 ring circus .Big Boy Rules folks play with fire you get burned.
3. Appeared the guy was moving in the opposite directed of the police, did they shoot him in the back?
