I’m about to say something thats on my mind,but before I do I want to remind every one that this is a free country and i have a right to voice my opinion.
This being said.the same night that Officer D.Owens was shot by a suspect.The CPD was called to a home where a man with a knife lunged at them and they shot and killed the man. Then a relitive was crying on T.V. that the man did not have to die and why did the cops kill him.Now is this person stupid?the man did not have to die all he had to do was comply with the officers orders to drop the knife,and he would have gone to jail but still been alive he chose to try to attack police with a knife.If I was one of the officers I would have fired my gun,I want to live as much as the next person,and would I have been upset if I had been in the shoes of the police,yes I would have been verry upset.you do not lightly pull out you weapon and point it at someone.You do that because you are forced to by the suspect,and if the suspect puts you in fear for you own life,and shooting and killing the suspect is your only option that you do just that.
than you have to live with the thought that you just someones life.That is a heavy burden that a Police officer or any law inforcement officer faces every day that they are on duty.
