I don't believe there was no other way. This is not a cop afraid for his life, this is a cop enraged at the gall of someone who refuses to obey a direct order.The officer pulled over a red Honda coupe in the 1400 block of Harvey Road Northeast just before 10:30 p.m. because the car had a burned-out headlight, authorities said. The 48-year-old driver climbed out of the car and threatened the officer with a knife, said a source close to the investigation.
The officer opened fire and killed the man after he refused to put down the knife, Kent police said.
The same thing happens in home invasions and burglaries. Homeowners, not unlike the cops, have a veritable license to kill. And they use it.
I say something is seriously wrong with a society that condones this kind of unnecessary killing.
