"One officer shot the man five times, and a second officer shot the man five more times after he fell to the pavement."
So one or two well-placed shots wouldn't have stopped him? So they each shot him five times? Five shots AFTER he was down? A shot in the shoulder would have made it really hard for him to swing that "deadly" bar.
In 20 years of Law Enforment in the military my colleagues and I encountered many incidents not unlike this, and the K-9 unit always made quick work of it... why wasn't the dog used instead of being kept on a leash? And why is the K-9 officer holding his gun the way gang members do..?
The state needs to re-evaluate their training programs in light of the Lancaster incident and this one. Whatever they're teaching isn't working.
