Whats the old saying...Don't bring a knife to a gun fight
Knives are dangerous weapons . You will bleed out .
Gotta agree. The officer better be prepared to shoot, hesitation could result in injury or death.
Been there too in East LA. My partner was stabbed in the spleen. It turned into a nightstick scrum. The 21 foot rule is a minimum and is still iffy with drugs involved. The only thing better than a handgun against a knife wielder is the 12 ga.
Why??? Because the knife holder is a criminal and would have no problem stabbing the Officer. Shoot them and ask questions later!
