    Dude was running after the cars with a knife and tried to get in to the first cruiser. If a cop had gotten out of the vehicle, the guy would have run at him with the knife and get shot dead. This way, he can get the help he needs when he recovers from his injuries.

    Based off the use of the Force Continuum this was a more than justified action if intentional. You have an individual who is armed with a deadly weapon, and who has shown the willingness to use that weapon. The officer`s are more than cleared to use deadly force against this person, be it a vehicle or firearm.

    In this particular situation I don`t see it as intentional on the officer`s part, the suspect deliberately ran towards the vehicle as he came into the parking lot. Last time I checked, if you run into or at a moving vehicle you get hit by that vehicle.

    Being "mentally ill" doesn`t change the situation in the least. This person tried to kill someone, plain and simple. Had he succeeded it wouldn`t bring the slain person back, or make it any easier to deal with.

    I wouldn`t say it would be justified by the use of force continuum. At least, not the one I was taught. Nevertheless, if there was a crazy guy running at me and I was in a car, you bet your ass I would take care of it without opening my door.

    the cops didn`t hit him, he hit the cops.

    I didn`t know that stupidity was considered a mental illness now-a-days. Good to know.

    I place my faith in the police. I do not think that they would intentionally hit the man. Besides, if you are going to run after a cop car, head on, with a knife, you should simply expect for something to happen to you. Mentally ill or not. He probably just falls back on the mentally ill stigma to get away with doing stupid things like this. I worked in a mental hospital for a long time, even mentally ill people have a small bit of common sense.

    Problem here. The police care was going fast. Intentional or not, it was too fast, and the officer should be charged with something. He could have very well hit the person at less then ten miles and hour and knocked him up onto the hood, then back down onto the ground. No serious injuries, but enough to take the guy down. Not only that, but the force was also intensified by the guy running at him.

    The officer has something to atone for. There were many ways to keep the person from getting too seriously injured like he was.

    oh snap! ya i hate that phrase and think its gay but that was hilarious. i don`t really want to blame the cop here because form the dash cam it looked like he came out of now where. now whether or not he was going to fast or not its hard to say. i`d say he was driving like a badass and a tard got in the way. (i think thats the most cruel and mean statement i`ve ever made)

    DemonicVixen: Problem here: you`re retarded.

    So because according to your own basis the officer was "too fast" not that you know how fast he was really going, he turned from a street into a parking lot so he probably wasn`t going that fast.

    So where are you getting your 10 mph facts, do you run into people in your free time?

    And let me get this right, because the guy chose to run at the car then it`s more the officers fault? How does he have "something to atone for"? He was driving a dumbass ran towards his car, case closed.

    If they had gotten out of their cars and tazed him, hit him, or shot him it would have still been too excessive for you, so when you can come up with the other "many ways" then make another post.

    For the record, I hate the police, and I don`t think 80ll...(long name) should put any faith in them. Though this was a funny video, I did notice that the car didn`t seem to slow down a bit, which adds to the hilarity. And, DemonVixen, I doubt that you could intensify the force all that much just by running toward the car, unless you are a cheetah. That`s more of a Bicycle thing...

    I`m personally glad the officer hit him, intentional or not.

    If someone is walking around with a knife, running at POLICE with it, what do you think they are going to do to the average person just walking around?

    Who cares if he is mentally ill or not. How many murders or attacks are from mentally ill people? He was obviously dangerous and why should the officer endanger himself by getting out of the car. Personally I think everything went ok, Not like he backed up over him.

    With that said:
    If you are ever being chased by a crazy man with a knife or in any other situation that requires immediate assistance from Law Enforcement or any other Emergency Service, I hope someone tells them to slow down as you do not want them "driving too fast"...

    Okay, how about we have someone chase after you with a knife and then lets see how rational you are. I bet you will still want to not hurt the guy, huh?

    The cop had every right to kill this douchebag, he`s lucky to be alive. If you run after someone with a knife, and they have a gun, you should expect to be shot. I have no sympathy for idiots who think they are invincible.

    "

    Ah yes, the cop should have just sat back in his car and let the crazy guy with a knife take stabs at him, maybe the cop should have LEPT out of his car in front of the crazy man, after avoiding him of course, and take a few unaimed shots at the dude with a knife as he`s getting rushed and stabbed.

    What did you want the cop to do? Wait till the guy was on his windshield trying to smash it, and then shoot through it hurting him even more?

    I swear, some people on this website are dumb as a bag of rocks, and that`s giving most of them a compliment.

    This guy was armed. Technically, officers are allowed to use deadly force when faced with an armed man or woman, and/or when they feel as if their life, or another`s, is being threatened. In this video, it shows the guy had already jumped onto the hood of a cruiser, wielding a knife. Already, that`s like an assault on an officer. (If ramming a cop car is assault on an officer, jumping onto their cruiser with a knife has to be as well.) If not assault, that`s already damage to property.
    But seriously, this guy was running at the cop car. If he had not been running at it, he may not have gotten hit. Yet, he was, and with a knife. He`s lucky.

    And those saying it was an uneven match, car against man, or that a knife was harmless against a car... that is just stupid. Vehicle or not, this man was a threat. If he had a chance to hurt an officer, or worse, kill one, I bet you anything he would have done it. Stop feeling sorry for the guy who broke the law.

    I am gonna say he didnt mean to hit him and wasnt expecting him to run at him. Also the police have to do what they have to do to protect themselves, if they cant get out of the car to take him down then use what you have.

    A deadly weapon is just that, whether it`s a knife, an icepick, or a shotgun. Deadly force is authorized under those conditions, and cops are allowed to use their vehicles as weapons, just as you and I are, if the circumstances warrant it; e.g., if some lunatic is trying to kill you.

    And getting hit by a car is way less life-threatening than getting hit in the chest with one or more bullets. I accidentally hit a guy once who drunkenly darted out into traffic. His head smashed my windshield, and left a dent in it with bits of scalp and hair stuck in it. He was out cold, but the paramedics said he had a bad concussion, but would probably be fine. That guy didn`t get hit anywhere near that bad.

    If the cop did this intentionally I would support the cop in this situation. Now we can`t see the cops head in this video.

    But knowing from my driving experience, whenever I turn I look in the direction of the most threatening thing; in this case the road and oncoming traffic.
    As I turn into the parking lot I, again, look at the most threatening thing; the other car.
    Now this doesn`t mean I don`t pay attention to other things.
    Peripheral vision does wonders, and being in marching band really helps with that. Have you ever had a 5 pound piece of wood, or a 10 foot pole coming towards your head? Probably not, but I have, and I have avoided those things.

    If you read this, go back and watch the guy hit the hood: THUD!

    This guy was armed, dangerous and needed taking out of public as fast and effectively as possible. Would say that had been achieved here! Well done to the officer for not actually causing the man more damage through correct driving procedures!

    Man, it awsome that cops finally dont get bashed for everything they do on IAB anymore, used to be if they shot a bean bag at someone that was shooting every woman and child in sight the cop was in the wrong on this site. And this video was awsome

    The alternative was to stop the car and taser him or shoot him. Shooting would be fatal most probably as it would have been at close range and the shot would have to stop him. Tasering might not have worked and by then the officer would have been carved into with the knife.
    The cop did the right thing.

    Good job cops.
    Whether it was intentional or not, it worked, and it needed to be done.
