The body cams seem pretty conclusive.

I down voated you since the quality of that clip is too bad. I feel slightly sorry about it, if it matters. :)

I'd say this one was justified. As a side note, thank you for not using a biased or misleading title.

A taser shot IF it worked would just be kicking the can down the road guy clearly wanted suicide by cop. They did the world a favor.

I usually think cops are fucked in the head, but these guys did a good job of showing restraint. I would 110% expect to be shot if I did that.

I'm not normally one to defend the police but I have to say after watching the footage it seems like the guy was intentionally provoking them after they drew their weapons, once a weapon is drawn on you isn't it common sense to comply. So good on those two for handling a dangerous situation and waiting until actually being threatened to fire. One small piece of criticism, couldn't one of them had used a taser and if it had failed to take him down then the other officer fires?

If you listen to the video of the first officer's POV he mentions a tazer and the other guy says something like 'no tazer greg'. Then he takes one hand off his weapon and you hear some beeps. ~1 minute in.

The point is that they didn't use a taser against someone with a melee weapon.

a knife is a dangerous weapon (In my state one of four that are automatically considered lethal force). The range that guy walk into with the police, if he was trained, would be able to kill at least one of the officers before being shot.

To take out the taser, after the weapon was drawn like this, would have put the officers life in danger due to the time needed to do so

Well I'm sure many of us would have made the same mistake the man had a weapon and intended to use it apparently.

Well I can't say that isn't a valid point but in the same situation I'm sure many if not all of us may make a similar mistake.
