Officer shoots man after high speed chase.

This Officer was more than patient as far as I'm concerned. I would have popped a cap in his ass long before this Professional LEO did.

That's why I never pursed the Profession. I would just be on Administrative Leave, pending Investigating all the time.

All Due Respect.

Was going to say something about deescalating the situation, but I've heard sarcasm doesn't always come across well on the internet.

Hard to argue with that one, he waited a hell of a lot longer than I would have.

I noticed. Would have been perfectly happy if the officer had shot him the first time he came at him.

yeah.... fuck that guy.

not sure when the cop saw the knife but I'm thinking when he's trying to stab the ground would be go time.

Right, just shoot the knife out of his hand and throw the cuffs on him and call it a day.

Actually he had nine lives on that one. He could have died in the accident or could have died every time the LEO should have pulled the trigger but didn't. He got to close to the cop.

It could have played out very bad for the Cop had the suspect cut him. I'm glad he was able to defend himself and make it home.

A clean shoot IMHO.
