    From what I remember from the distance of 20ft away, a suspect with a knife can make it to you to slice you up in less than 2 seconds. So "just that knife" is still a quick effective way to kill someone. If the public saw the videos we had to watch in the academy what a knife can do to someone, they'd understand more about the shooting. I guess that's asking too much for someone to do research, they'd prefer to jump to judgements, and speak on things they have no clue about...

    It's because of idiots manufacturing weapons like these that people get killed by just pulling a so called knife or even trying to make a call. I can't believe these are allowed to even be sold. SCARY!!!!!!!!!

    Love that tag line - Man killed by Officer had knife, not gun.

    Who honestly gives a crap. A weapon pulled on an officer results in getting shot. End of story. Be it a knife, 2x4, broken bottle, whatever. You attack an officer with an object, after being commanded to drop said object, you deserve to get shot. Good job to the Anderson police, people even in Illinois support your choice!

    I can see your perspective on that, too. I am not an LEO, but I AM smart enough to read it and understand that it sounds very much like a clear cut case.

    It's not a good situation either way, but I guess that someone from a perspective other than Law Enforcement had to have been included in a story. It is just disappointing that the only perspective they could find to include was that of a person who does not seem to have a full grasp of common sense. Whether that's the fault of the reporter or not, I don't know that I can judge. Maybe no one else was around who wanted to, or could offer a comment on that situation.

    In the end, I know that I can benefit from figuring out the details of the whole situation.

    Yeah, I see your point. I was a little peeved with the news article. The media printed the friends’ ignorant comments but did a poor job of addressing the use-of-force issue. Some will read that article and presume the police acted inappropriately.

    Oh yes, of course. I don't in any way question that aspect of it Ten Six. I appreciate the escalation of force and the basis behind the officer's actions.

    While it's obvious to everyone here the ramifications for such an escalation on the part of the suspect, I am exploring the insides of that guy's brain and trying to figure out what, beyond the obvious, he could have been thinking in his actions. Also, from an education standpoint, I would like to do my best to fully understand the situation with which the officers were faced.

    Whether or not the knife looked like a gun is irrelevant. A knife is a lethal weapon. Anyone wielding a knife at a cop is asking to get shot. Stun guns/Tasers were never intended to be a viable option during a deadly force engagement.

    What kind of knife looks like a gun? That is obviously a stupid thing for a person to have around. It also seems pretty irresponsible to manufacture such a thing.

    Sad that a jerk with a knife put an officer in the position of having to shoot him.

    Glad the knife wielding jerk did not get to hurt anyone.

    The way I read this the PD is behind the officer on this one. Sounds like he did the right thing and I sure hope he doesn't get hung out to dry on this one. To all officers always make it home safe!!

    Don't they have tasers?!?!? I can tell you exactly what would have happened in this case if a taser would have been used instead. Suspect gets tased and dies. Family is outraged over the use of the taser. "Why didn't they just tackle him?? WHY? WHY?"

    I have no remorse for anyone, ANYONE, that puts an officer in a position to use deadly force.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't LEO's trained to treat any gun or something that resembles a gun to be real AND loaded??
    Totally agree and with the cell phone guns and knife guns out today one wouldn't know if it's just a knife so they have to do whatever it takes to protect themselves and other's around. Good job Anderson officers!!!!!!

    OH GOOD LORD! The girl who made that comment looked like she was strung out on something. She looks like she has a sore on her upper lip, probably from her crack pipe. Typical. I love people like that, I really do. How irritating!!!! Of course, like most of the time, the police are made out to be the bad guys. Even if they did use the tazer, I am sure the same people would still be complaining that they used "excessive force." Idiots....

    I applaud the Anderson officers. You get a big "Right on!" from me
