We’ve just had yet another case of a cop shooting and killing another unarmed civilian.
The above video is an example of how police officers can take down a lethal threat without killing anyone. This guy wasn’t even unarmed; he was armed with with two large knives. A taser took him down no problem, even when he charged an officer.
Tasers aren’t the only option. Cops also have access to pepper spray, nightsticks, bean bag guns, rubber bullets, and a whole bunch of other effective weapons that prevent harm to police but don’t kill. Why then are they so often going for the gun?
Next time you see another news report about a cop shooting and killing an unarmed person (and you will), remember this video.
