    Officer ruled not justified in shooting

    I say he was justified. What do you say?

    you don't often see law enforcement shoot to wound.

    in the present world, he'll probably be paying this suspect for the rest of his life.

    Okay many times I have disagreed with officer involved shootings. The homeless guy in New Mexico or the elderly man they bean bagged who later died. This? Completely justified and they were being nice.

    Officers really do need closer quarter combat training though. Seriously.

    I saw this a long time ago. The girl did NOT pose a lethal threat. The cop had that whole parking lot to back up and try to talk while more help was rolling.

    That is why he didn't kill her. There is no duty to retreat.

    I know the parking lot well. It is in Parowan. My dog shit near the little fake grass patch seen at the start. I’ve parked 2 spaces to the right of the scene.

    There is one hundred feet behind the officer to the mechanics garage. To the left is the fuel and Taco Bell/ Subway/mini-mart, about 250-300 feet away. Wouldn’t want her getting anywhere in those directions where someone could get stabbed or hostage. She was obviously nuts and/or on drugs. A gamble for what she would do. She already had the guy next to her following her commands and had a red shirt wearing partner near by. IMO the taser should have been targeted below the jacket just like the three shots were. Maybe she would have been dropped from that.

    I don't think he had to shoot her. Yet.

    Why don't police get close quarter combat training?

    Why don't police get psychological training to help diffuse the situation?

    Current police training seems to be more along the lines that all police are like SWAT. There is no more negotiator. Just go into a situation with force.

    There doesn't seem to be any flexibility that is situation appropriate.
