Sounds like reasonable force to me!
A Houston police officer shot and killed a schizophrenic, wheelchair-bound double amputee threatening people with a pen, police said.
He was just standing his ground.
Just pigs doing pig things
What if it was a really big pen?

How do you allow yourself to be cornered by a one-armed, one-legged dude confined to a wheelchair? Seriously the cop that allowed this to happen should be fired along w/ the one that did the shooting.
Claunch, who lost an arm and a leg in a train accident, trapped one officer with his wheelchair in the corner of a room "where he couldn't get out," said a Houston police department spokesperson who declined to be identified. The double amputee was "advancing towards" the officers and "refusing to show his hands."
Did he have a little ding-ding bell he kept hitting with his finger? If so, I think I know what the problem was.
Could you imagine if someone who wasn't a cop tried to sell this bs story? The investigating cops would probably beat that person to death. Cops take the whole "I thought my life was in danger" thing to ridiculous levels.
Officer Matt Marin, "in fear of the safety of his partner and the safety of himself, discharges his duty weapon, striking the suspect," Silva said.
This stuff makes me sick. What a fucking pussy (the cop). Of course, nothing will come of this.
At least this guy is getting fired. The woman's lucky somebody was filming at the time:
PHILADELPHIA - A police officer in Philadelphia was caught on video hitting a woman in the face at the citys 50th Annual Puerto Rican Day Parade on Sunday. ...
I saw that slowed down. She threw/sprayed something at the cop then ran. He said he didn't know what it was and it was in his eyes. He didn't want her to get away.
He was still in the wrong.
She sprayed some silly string into the air. A few seconds later, as she stepped closer to the cops somebody else threw some beer at the cops. They assumed she was the one who threw beer on them (which is what she was charged with, but they dropped it after the video came out).
The credited response can only be: GoTech or Parlay.
OH SHIT! WHAT NOW RAISE! YOU FUCKED UP!
Of course they did. She got sucker punched by that cop.
Don't police officers watch TV or the news? He had to have known there was a possibility this stuff was being recorded. Hes not in a back alley in the middle of the night.
the thought that any cop is worse than any other is amusing to me. It's like ranking ways to die by misadventure.
....and he's back on the job, complete with full back-pay. Apparently slipping on a can caused her bloody mouth - not the punch to the face that was captured on video.
The former Philadelphia police officer who punched a woman in an incident that was caught on video is getting his job back.
I love when I enter a thread with something to say and found it's already been wonderfully written.

guess that's why everyone gets due process, cops didn't make the decision, the court acquitted him.
i remember a time when i thought you were so off base and that bad cop behavior had to be extremely isolated incidents. lol@past me.
Really, Apple? But to be fair, Apple files a shitload of patents every year that, for whatever reason, never come to fruition.
But they may not need to fear scrutiny much longer - Apple has patented a piece of technology which would allow government and police to block transmission of information, including video and photographs, whenever they like.
All the coppers have to do is decide that a public gathering or venue is deemed "sensitive", and needs to be "protected from externalities" and Apple will switch off all its gear.
The police can then get on with the very difficult task of kettling protesters without having to worry about a few beating anyone to death.
Apple insists that the affected sites are mostly cinemas, theatres, concert grounds and similar locations, but it does admit that it could be used in "covert police or government operations which may require complete 'blackout' conditions".
Police forces around the world have had the problem that when their officers get a bit carried away and start pepper spraying tied captives there is someone on hand filming the event on their mobile phones.
