People see on the news where a police officer shot a drunk or even sober civilian and killed him or her. You hear the chants from the riots in the streets “He only had a knife (or broken bottle or other sharp instrument) so the police should not have killed him. Excessive force!”
Let me share with you some advice:
NOTE: This method of self-protection may not be legal in many states, and I do not have any legal experience. I just know that a person with a knife can kill or seriously maim or paralyze you for life with a knife.
My dear readers, if you continue reading Part 2 of this article, I warn you in advance that you will see graphic pictures that show what happened to an officer who is an expert in hand-to-hand combat. The officer, against his better judgment, but probably within the rules of engagement for his department attempted to disarm a person with a knife.
The officer was physically stronger, taller and weighed more than the person threatening him with the knife. You might figure the officer would get a couple of minor slashes, but this proves otherwise.
And, if you ever hear someone complain about excessive force by police, just show them this.
