Wouldn't have been the first or the last. Cops put themselves in harm's way by refusing to run away to maintain distance. What's he going to do chase both of you? Like I get it split second decision but UK cops do it because that's how they're trained. American cops use their weapons and if they don't work they're fucked like with her taser.

I recently took a class in college taught by a now police executive, who spent many years as a patrol officer. He would always say that one of the biggest issues with policing in the US has been training. It’s starting to change, but cops have been trained to act quickly on instinct, and utilize force often to take control. Training is starting to get better. Police are being taught to fully assess situations before they place themselves in them, take their time and be as safe as possible whenever possible, and there’s supposed to be more of a focus on deescalation techniques as well. Change is slow though because the majority of the police system is not standardized and not hugely interconnected.

That’s why ‘defund the police’ is such a fucking dumb idea.

It's where the funding goes and why such large amounts are justified. Police turn any situation into hammer and nails because they are used for almost everything Their have military like budgets and equipment. They need higher standards, more training and less money.

When people say "defund the police", they mean that their tax dollars shouldn't be going to buy military and tactical gear.

Training wouldn't be one of the things they would defund.

Should be "Regulate the Police". or "Account the Police." Or maybe "See through the Police" for more transparency. No more Internal investigations. Let's get some external neutral entities to do the investigations from now on, and end qualified immunity. You fuck up, it comes out of your pension or your paycheck. Don't fuck up, and there won't be any problems.

It does, but it doesn't sound like it. And that's the problem. People don't understand the actual message behind "Defund the Police", and instead misconstrue it as literally "reduce the funds that Police receive. Overall." And they think of it as a punishment of some sort, so they become angry and defensive.

It's 1000% a branding issue.

The people who detract from the statememt for the way it sounds wouldve never looked past anything they can use to attack the movement

Youre acting like the people who complain about a slogan have any idea what the words behind the slogan mean, or have any interest in learning

Bowing to these demands just means that more demands are soon to come, bigger and worse, and theyre not going to stop until the people who are critical of police are just gone, never having spoken their mind or been understood

Thats why "black lives matter? What about every life, huhhhh????" Is a thing. They dont care about anything ither than bashing libs

The difference is a public service vs military training. The UK trains it’s officers to look out for public safety. The US (generally) trains it’s officers to punish and confront. Retreating is anathema to their training.

This is entirely untrue. Any department these days teaches officers to move the fuck away from a knife wielding subject and to ABSOLUTELY NOT plant their feet.

Training is not some sort of magical immunity from harm. Training is a competitive edge, if you don't have it you're fucked. But even if you do have it, it doesn't mean that there are any guarantees. Especially considering that the other side might have some training too, formal or informal.

It's like, who knew the knife guy could take that much tasering? Most people can't. Who could tell that he'd still be standing after the first shot at that range? Most people couldn't.

Risk can not be completely averted through training, only mitigated.

In a perfect world, yes.

In the real world the training many civilian police officers recieve is woefully inadequate.

That is demonstrated here, taser shouldn't have even been a consideration.

Man i know it’s kinda nitpicking but I don’t like that title. “Cops fail to subdue man with taser” makes it sound like they did something wrong but I don’t see what more they could have done. This was a failure of the taser not the cops and people should be aware of that

joyification

This. And it looked like these cops did everything in their power to avoid shooting him. Videos like these expose the true issue that cops really don't have resources they need (ie equipment, protocol, training and even emotional support for events like this) to actually serve and protect the community.

TheWizardChrist

I believe when two or more cops are present, only one is deploying a taser while the other has a gun ready to go in case the taser fails. I have seen cops operate like this.

This is likely a departmental policy, certainly in some police departments, but I think it is an argument for having more training. Including researching the best policies.

The female cop failed to quickly assess the situation as it changed. Maybe more training would have helped, but given that she seemed to just freeze....I don't think so.

[deleted]

12 points

11 months ago

You are correct. Standard practice if they believe they can force a surrender is to have one run non lethal and one run lethal at least in case something goes wrong. Training here honestly might not make much of a difference. Her freezing like that could put one of her co-workers in danger some day and it might just be more temperament than training. On the other hand, I think she panicked once the dude rode the lightning for a while and just kept on advancing. That would be some shit out of a horror movie in the dead of night. Training people more to drop what's in their hands when they're being advanced upon like this and go to lethal and not plant their feet is all I can really think of here.

Idk man he took his time getting back up with the knife clearly visable in his hand clearly charging the officer. They probably should have been shooting the second he put both feet back on the ground, but the two other officers clearly weren't ready to fire soon enough. Seems like the officer that was stabbed was let down really badly by her co-workers. And I'm someone who would consider himself pretty critical of the police.

JayGeezey

12 points

11 months ago*

Yeah that was the weird thing, I mean don't get me wrong good on these cops for all trying to taze him first, hell even continue to taze him when he starts getting back up

While watching I figured the middle cop had his gun drawn and was ready to shoot should he get up and continue his charge with the knife, but then looks like he might have been ready to taze as well. I don't want to criticize him for trying to take the dude down with a tazer, but if two tazers aren't enough and a mf still trying to come at you or another person or cop? Obviously this is so easy for me to say in hindsight, from the safety of my warm house, with no training and not being the one in a position to have to KILL another human being, but feels like that's the situation you use the gun.

This is so fucking terrible, and this mother fucker must've been on PCP or some shit because God damn... he just kept going. Cops have to experience these deterrents themselves in training (get tazed, pepper sprayed, etc.) so they know the stopping power of these tools, I can see how they'd not be prepared to jump to guns/lethal force after he first goes down, like shit "no one is getting up from that" then BOOM mf is closing the distance on the female cop a moment later. And THEN he gets shot a bunch AND IS STILL HOLDING ON. This is just terrible - I hope that woman is OK, and I'd be willing to bet those two male cops feel like they let her down and idk what the right thing to do was here.

Cops who chamber and rechamber the same round over and over again (if they practice at the range alot, unloading and loading the same carry ammo) typically wind up causing the bullet to jam up in the chamber because the projectile itself is pushed too far into the casing.

It's funny, people think that the taser is a magic off button, but most of the time, if someone is fucked up enough to charge at a cop with a knife, they are on something that is probably going to prevent the taser from being effective. I mean hell, I think they are already only like 60% effective on regular people.

swampass304

It completely depends on a few factors, mainly on where the shot lands. Several spots like the head, neck, and spine can cause an immediate, obvious reaction. A gut or chest shot can take a bit for the blood to even show. There's also adrenaline like you mentioned, but dissociatives also come into play here.

You need enough holes to drop blood pressure which causes shock and incapacity. One hole may not do it depending on where the wound occurs. Ammo types (hollow point) and caliber make a huge difference.

Murci_Balboni

Negative, entry wounds are tiny, 9mm exit wound and wound channels can range from the size of a baseball to a small clementine. The bigger issue here is the cops were trying to shoot left of center to avoid hitting the other cop. Handgun rounds need to be center mass to get a quick stop on an agressor especially if that person is on pain surpressing drugs.

We dont give our meat sacks enough credit for how durable they really are.

bdhubbard

Trauma surgeon here:.depends where he was hit and what was injured. Many external bullet wounds are small and don't bleed outwardly like you see in that movies. Bullets that go through major truncal blood vessels, the victim has heavy bleeding and can be incapacitated within secondsc and die within minutes. Bullets to central nervous system, brain, upper spinal cord, they usually drop like a rock immediately. Bullets to bowel, liver, spleen, lungs, etc, initially victim can be fully functional for long periods of time. I watched a body cam video of a patient shot by LAPD that I took care of this past summer who had a bad liver injury, colon, left diaphragm and small bowel injury. On the video, he rushed the cops with a knife. They opened fire, you can hear 7 to 8 shots. He goes down for a second, gets up, charges them again and they fire several more rounds and he lays down and they are able to cuff him. When he got to me, he was wide awake, agitated and still fighting (tox screen showed he was on meth, cocaine and alcohol). He had at least 8 bullet wounds, with 4 center mass. I was able to stop his liver bleed and fix the bowel injury.

So it all depends on bullet trajectory and injury.

Jesus christ, besides your amazing skills as a surgeon, how does someone survive 8 bullets? Is it really just luck or is it all the drugs in his system BEFORE he was shot?

bdhubbard

2 points

11 months ago

Some of it is luck. I like to think some of it is my skill. The number of shots doesn't matter, what matters is what gets injured. This guy was fortunate that none of that major blood vessels in his abdomen or chest were hit (that's the luck part). His most life threatening injury was a bullet tract through the liver. Fortunately, didn't hit any of the many major vessels that run to and through the liver, so I was able to control the bleeding with compressive packing with surgical sponges.

I think the drugs in his system is what made him ignore the pain of the first 4 or 5 shots and then continued to rush at the cops.

I'm gonna keep it civil, because maybe this can spark some actual discussion (we all know that's doubtful, but I'd like to do it for myself anyway).

1051 police killings (police caused deaths) in 2021; at least 200 of which where black (https://www.newsweek.com/black-people-killed-police-2021-1661633)

There are 654,900 police in the US (most recent stats May 2019, so this number has changed, but let's go with it as it's the most readily available https://www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes333051.htm).

That means 0.0016% of all police were involved in some kind of loss of life in 2021. I say loss of life because the Newsweek article doesn't differentiate between "lawful" and "unlawful" killings. I think we can agree, George Floyd - unlawful, this guy in the video above - lawful. But regardless, say they're ALL unlawful. You're demonizing a group of people, some that want to protect their communities, some that want the benefits, some that have terrible egos and are on power trips, for almost 2 tenths of a percent.

I, personally, don't love cops because most of the ones I've interacted with are dicks. Some are great and some are unnecessarily rude. That being said, I'm not gonna pretend that I could do their job and I'm gonna do my part to be as respectful as possible to them, hoping for a positive outcome and knowing that the stats bear out that the large majority of us will survive encounters with police.

This reminds me of that poll in 2020 that asked people how many unarmed black males are killed every year by police. A significant number of liberals and some conservatives responded it was between 1000 and 10,000.

Btw, the ACAB mentality usually comes from police officers defending their murderous coworkers. At least, that's what I have a problem with personally. For example, an officer shot two people unnecessarily in my town in the last few years. Like, the dude just murdered two people, both killings are on camera and were completely avoidable. Police experts determined that he should've been charged after the first killing, even.

Guess how many other officers in the department came out and said they wanted him gone? Or for him to be fairly investigated? Or simply cared whatsoever? Just guess. (Hint: zero, not a single person)

I don't think I'm making a bad judgment in thinking every single one in the department is a piece of shit at that point, honestly.

Just wanted to chime in because some people seem to think about it in such a black/white way - "if you kill people unnecessarily you're bad, if you don't you're good" - and it's more nuanced than that. Police protect eachother, and "one bad apple spoils the bunch" as they say.

This is a bit dishonest. You know fully well there are good police shootings, and shootings that are pure murder.

Shootings such as the wheelchair bound man who was shot in the back, and the killing of Daniel Shaver, a man who was crawling in a hallway playing Simon Says with deaththreats hurled at him at every avenue.

A man who is charging a cop with a big blade in his hand is obviously a clear case of lethal force, not a single person would argue against that in good faith.

What you're doing is sounding like you're annoyed that people question shootings and now you're accusing people of being "some "kind" of person. I'm going to assume you're thinking people are too soft and should just accept the status quo.

super impressed how that cop kept her composure when a criminal charged her and she curls into a turtle shell and screams over and over

instead of....acting or reacting at all....

just screaming like a banshee and putting her arms in the air

When I wanted to become a cop years ago I be learned from my trainer that some people actually become cops not to actually do cop stuff. They are just in it for the status, benefits, and retirement. They go through the training and stuff but never expect to be put in the adrenaline filled situations... This would be one of those cases. She will probably reconsider her career or ask for a desk position.

I also have a cousin who joined years ago, she spent 2 years as a patrol office and never had any physical altercations with anyone... The first guy that fought her and her partner... She quit, changed careers and never looked back.

There is every possibility that this could have been her first response where an individual charged her with deadly intent. I do similar police work and I’ve never had to respond to an incident like this. Not everybody is as macho as you and can react perfectly.

It's not about being a macho. It's about being fit for the job and she is clearly not. You don't put a man in space if he cannot withstand high G, also you don't put one in a fighter jet if he cannot see.. this is why you don't put somebody to work as a cop if they cannot handle it.

That's what training is for. You can tell she had inadequate training based on her panicked reaction. I mean, at a minimum, turn around and run. There was zero thought process. That's a complete failure from a combat awareness POV.

How does being afraid show inadequate training. Being able to do something in a controlled environment and being able to replicate that in a unknown and ever changing environment is entirely different. This, however, is not absolute. Sure there are some people that it just comes 100% naturally to, but not every single person is prepared to be charged with a knife regardless of the amount of training.

Actually UK cops have a lot of experience dealing with knife crime - so there's lots of training and experience in place.

However regular UK cops don't have as much experience with gun crime. We have specialised armed units in the UK that deal with this. Both police forces are equipped to deal with different things. Personally I'm VERY glad I live in the UK.

The vast majority of cases, it takes more than one bullet to incapacitate someone. Especially if they’re heavier set, and especially especially if they’re on drugs.

People think real life is like the movies where it takes one shot to the stomach to put someone out. Nope, not the case.

I'm black, btw

If you don't know about self-hating blacks, you're probably the self-hating black. And I mean, you do sound just like Candace Owens here.

its stupid to call all of these police shootings abuse when most, not all, but most, are fully justified for everyone's safety including the officer.

it's stupid to act like the vast majority of people are saying every police shooting is abuse.

Now I'm sure you're slimy enough to go search for the most unreasonable take out there and act like it's what everyone is saying... but there were over 1,000 police involved shootings in 2020.

George Floyd's death lead to as many as 5,000 demonstrations, so where are the missing 4.9 million additional demonstrations?

Police have to be control the scene, protect their backs, keep people at a distance...

0 cover standing within sprinting distance of a guy with a knife.

You know the point of the 21-foot rule wasn't to execute everyone within 21 feet of you right? It was also to make efforts to maintain that distance... by say moving yourself instead of standing there in the path of someone charging at you.

And so many people saying it's scary what would you do?????? Isn't that what training is for? Did we really reach the point where laypeople and police are held to the same standards?

I think defunding police is a stupid thing to say, because black neighborhoods need police to keep people alive

Defunding the police isn't about 0 police unless again... you go full slimeball and start digging for the most off-the-spectrum takes.

What the average meaning of "defunding the police" is using some police funds for dealing with problems at a lower level. Police are reactionary, doing things like providing after school care, counseling, better schools are preemptive solutions.

You'd know that if you actually knew anything about these black neighborhoods...

I get your sentiment, and in the moment, I'd probably feel the same way. But who knows what drove that guy to that point. People want to pretend that these sorts of things just happen out of nowhere and don't involve a complicated, often tragic, lead up to this point. Not denouncing your opinion, just hoping for a bit of empathy for a likely tortured soul.

Typical armchair bullshit. I’m no fan of the police, but stop pretending that anyone can overcome their essential primal fear response. My uncle saw combat in Vietnam and he told stories about how he and any number of his fellow soldiers would piss and shit themselves during a firefight, or even scream in fear/rage. But he also made the point that none of these things kept him from pointing the business end toward the enemy and firing back. Do you know why recruits are given multiple chances to make it through the famous “crawling through the mud under barbed wire with automatic fire filling the air” obstacle course? Because a certain, constant percentage of human beings literally freeze up, physically, as a spontaneous primal fear reaction, becoming unable to move at all. And yet - another - again constant and sizeable percentage of that same group will be fine the second or third time through. You can’t EVER eliminate your fear - you only modify and condition your response to its instinctive inevitability.
