Probably because most cops are trigger happy thugs that get off on shooting someone!
Can't you simply give credit where it is due? No. You have to throw in that bull.
Most cops don't want to kill people. They probably dread doing so. But they have families to go home to, who are relying upon them to do so.
If the suspect pulls a weapon, the LEO is rightly trained to use lethal force if it is perceived to be a threat. This cop would have immediately done the same, rightly so, but you call him a hero simply because the suspect did not pull a gun out.
You are severely lacking critical thinking skills. Get sorted. You are part of the problem with society today.
i think you missed the point! the reason a story like this is so rare is because cops forgot how to use deescalation techniques! or refuse to use them....
hey, what do you know! A cop doing his job.
