#2011806 June/July: Private Applications Open

I agree with @Amethyst in that we should be seeing both of you next time around, good luck in advance, though I doubt either of you will need it.




PS, I only just realised what your display pic is (I don't pay them much attention) and I can think of nothing better than a unicorn kitten with butterfly wings.

It is fine. If the girl is on top it means gravity won't allow the sperm to reach her egg.

Jesus fucking Christ this is going to be a long one to reply to.  A few of you are out of your god-damned minds and need a fucking education, bad.



You're right that they're wrong.


They shot him over self defense when he continued to advance on them, disobey orders, and apparently wield a knife.  At 21 feet the assailant is within range to cause bodily harm to the officer before they have any chance of being dropped (if no weapons are drawn).  If weapons are drawn that range is less, but the odds of instantly dropping the assailant do not go to zero.


1) They did.  The assailant was non-compliant.

2) If I put you on the street with an armed man walking towards you with a weapon, and you have the option of a gun, taser, or bear spray, what would you choose and why?

3) If the man wanted suicide by cop it justifies the cops' behavior, because who knows what would have happened if they didn't pull the trigger.  He wanted to die, but what if the sick son of a bitch wanted to take someone with him?  I firmly believe in rehabilitating those who suffer from depression and plenty of other mental illnesses, but when it comes down to people's lives on the line, especially innocent people (Police), then you're damn right the assailant should be shot.


You are right.


You are right.  I'd also suggest to OP and other opponents of the police's lethal action to research the Tueller Drill.


Thank God there is some asshole on this forum still willing to call out complete dumbasses.


You are right.


Why the hell do you always have to be the voice of reason?  (You're right)


You are right.


Try 21 feet from a charging assailant and a holstered gun on the police.  That's also under the assumption the first shot drops the assailant.  (You never fucking aim for the leg, whoever said that earlier.  That's fucking retarded.)


Thank you for a post which adds nothing of value to this discussion. Any person can reply with completely unsubstantiated opinions of what is right/wrong. Usually such opinions are worthless.

You have never used a taser, stop bringing that up. It is not 100% effective and especially at such a short distance.

Yes, officers are trained to deal with these scenarios and they did just that. They acted responsibly, professionally and did a damn good job of protecting themselves and others.

If you knew about suicide by cop incidents, you'll know that people will attack and try and kill cops so that they'll be shot. This would obviously be going through their heads when they make that decision.

If you're American, I suggest you buy a long range taser and try it out on someone a few times. Minimise the distance each time and see if it's as effective. Come back with your results.


Please stop using my assumed ignorance as the only support to your arguments. It is weak.

Are saying that these officers had NO reason to believe that their lives were in danger?


Do you or do you not believe that this man would have stabbed a police officer had they not successfully subdued him?


Whether I believe he would have stabbed them or not irrelevant to what I am arguing, which is that they did not have to kill him in order to subdue him. Like I said, they had tasers and also did not have to fatally wound.

That's deflection Cronus. Address my point directly instead of insulting me.

And how can you tell if a man is "mentally ill" by looking at him? How do you tell if someone is high by looking at them? 


These cops did what their training taught them to do if they believed their lives, the lives of their partners, or the lives of civilians were in immediate danger.


Forget I said that there were claims he was mentally ill. I imagine the claims would have been made by the community who knew him. Whether he was mentally ill or not doesn't change the fact that that it is unjustified.


Can you can explain to me how it is is justified to kill someone when they could have been stunned or taken down (non-fatally)? Isn't that the entire purpose of tasers? Police all over the world use them, which means that they work and are effective.

For god sake, you can tell straight away you've never been in a high adrenaline rushed scenario like the above.

They dost kill him over some bagels or whatever, they shot him in self defence. They shot him because he ran towards them with a knife. What would you do in that scenario?

Tasers aren't 100% effective and there is a possibility that the barbs don't hit, or the volts aren't effective. Now I know officers are trained to shoot but hitting a moving target in a tiny area (I.E a leg compared to the torso) isn't always possible.

On top of that, shooting someone in the leg doesn't not always put the subject down, and if it doesn't, you have two dead officers. Even I know, someone with no firearms training, you DO NOT let anyone who is carrying a blade within a few feet of you. It can go very wrong, very fast.

I don't see what having a few officers (first time I've seen the word few to describe two) on scene has to do with anything. Having more than one person there won't stop a blade going into your chest or throat.

I'm not surprised my rational behind my thoughts scare you. Logical thinking scares and hinders the ignorant.

You've obviously never heard of suicide by cop techniques. It's not a surprise really.


1) Police should be trained to keep a clear head in a 'high adrenaline rushed scenario'.

2) Sure, tasers aren't 100% reliable (is anything?), but there were multiple officers- without a doubt enough of them to get the man down without killing him.

3) Claiming this guy was attempting suicide through the use of cops once again doesn't justify their behaviour.
