I`m doing lulz. That was funny.
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!
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.
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.
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.
The officer has something to atone for. There were many ways to keep the person from getting too seriously injured like he was."
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.
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"...
They might hurt the squirrels.
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?
One more dangerous idiot off the streets.
"Yeah, I gotta say, all you heard at my PC for a while was:"He is in critical *THUMP* condition--""He is in critical *THUMP* condition--""Critical *THUMP* condi--""Critical *THUMP* condi--""Critical *THUMP* condi--""Critical *THUMP* condi--"
And so on....
I don`t think I`m evil, I`ve just never ran someone over, and I wanna see what it`s like, heehee."
i did the same thing. if only we could replay those great hits that happen when a camera isn`t around
"He is in critical *THUMP* condition--""He is in critical *THUMP* condition--""Critical *THUMP* condi--""Critical *THUMP* condi--""Critical *THUMP* condi--""Critical *THUMP* condi--"
I don`t think I`m evil, I`ve just never ran someone over, and I wanna see what it`s like, heehee.
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.

I totally saw that and thought of the Dane Cook story on this too. I`m not sure if it was intentional or not, and I feel bad, but I found that absolutely hilarious.
For me, it was thirteen times. XD
I mean, you can only watch a person get hit so many times before it becomes boring.
Good job cop.
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.
And apparently Dane Cook wasn`t lying:
If you watch carefully his shoe actually did fly off.
(Not really a DC fan, but I`ve heard that segment a few times)
So what is he doing outside with a knife?
drating hick I tell you
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.
