I can tell you, that I am a prior police officer, and when you get into a life and death situation, you are trained, and it becomes second nature, to draw your weapon, and aim.Well, you have the Philly mom wanting to know why her son wasn't tazed when approaching police with deadly force. Only makes sense to not have police involved with the looting since it would incite violence. They aren't hurting anyone - insurance covers those business costs.
Now did I say that with a straight face?
I don't believe the tazers would have worked on this individual. He seemed to be in a mindset and worked up enough that the tazers wouldn't have phased him one bit.
When an individual is pumped up on adrenaline, it's like being high on pcp, or meth. Sure, he would have felt the electricity, but it wouldn't have stopped him until he killed one, or both officers involved.
If I understand correctly, he had a problem with mental instability. The way he was acting, the cops wouldn't have known that at all. They just know that a man rushed them wiyh a knife out and ready to stab someone, or them.
It's an unfortunate set of events that happened.
That doesn't give the people the right to riot, and loot businesses in their own community.
Yes, maybe the store owners do have insurance. But I'm thinking most don't, because it's so damn expensive.
Plus, I'm not sure insurance companies will pay out because this was done deliberately, and wasn't an act of God.
