Police are justified using deadly force when, a reasonable police officer believes his life or someone elseâ€™s live is in eminent danger. It is not judged from hindsight, but from the viewpoint of a police officer (not a untrained citizen) in a rapidly evolving situation where decisions have to be made in split seconds.
In this situation, the cops contained the bad guy by surrounding him. The bad guy moved at the cops, who have two options, retreat, or shoot him until he is no longer a threat. They didnâ€
Im not sure of the distance pepper spray can get someone, but the cops probably didnt want to go close up incase of an attack.
The cops got the job done and barely injured the insane man. I`ve seen worse injuries in a soccer match, thats not exactly a "rough" sport.""[/qoute]
lol, okay so maybe the song should be `dont want to be a canadien idiot`. But Thats wasn`t really my point thought. I am just saying they had other ways of taking this guy out. Ramming a car into him probably wasn`t the best one.
Also, a few days ago was it...that guy that set himself on fire because they didn`t know how to handle (i.e. just back off and wait for psych pros) a distraught protester. They kept approaching him and he kept TELLING THEM to back off and that they were leaving him no choice.
Anyway. Toronto cops are a special breed of idiot.
Of course, we don`t know what the guy did to deserve it, either. He could be the next Rodney King.

Then he would just cut the net with his knife :p
Dont get all self rightous and blame the police. crap happens when your a raving knife weilding lunatic surrounded by cops.Im sure if the cop knew it was going to do what it did he would have turned a foot or two to the right, but when his brother are out their in danger for their lives, you do what you do.
They could have teargassed em or even beanbag him. The best option would probably to net him, But thats not what these "brave members of Society" did.
Some hippies don`t appreciatte it though.
Suicide by cop is one of the most cowardly ways to die and is very selfish, forcing another person to live with killing another human being. It was a populated area so shooting to disable could have resulted in a bystander getting injuried.
Tigergal the cops here actually wear slash resistant vests not kevlar. Slash resistant however does not mean it will prevent you from getting stabbed nor would it help if he slashed their faces or arms.
