    Some of my fellow cops in my precinct don't carry while processing arrests while in the stationhouse. Instances like these are the reason why i'm always armed even when i'm doing paperwork at the stationhouse.

      Family wonders if he could not have been subdued instead of shot.
      Officials say Marlon Leroy Johnson walked into the lobby, brandishing a knife and threatening officers.
      Do people seriously not understand how much damage a knife can actually do?

        I recall that several years ago a PG County officer was killed with his own gun while processing a prisoner. Cuff and thoroughly search him just like you would in the field, get him in the jail, and then process him.

          DAL, we don't process at a jail, we process at our agency. We are required by policy to lock our firearms up prior to unhandcuffing the prisoner (who is also wearing shackles) and handcuffs are only removed to print and then put back on. Policy also requires two Officers and the door must be shut.

          I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

            Ahhhh Mr Johnson walked into the lobby at 02:30 on Friday night with a knife and threatened the officers, it wasn't an arrest/process situation.

            Anybody can walk into an "open public" lobby with any thing. Regardless of the sign's telling them what not to bring into the facility.

              The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office has released the name of the 60-year-old man who entered the North Platte Police Department in the early morning hours of March 25, attacked two police officers and was subsequently shot and killed.

              According to Lincoln County Chief Deputy Sheriff Dean Sparks, Marlon Leroy Johnson walked into the North Platte Police Department at approximately 2:30 a.m. on March 25 and started a fire in a paper-recycling bin. Johnson stood by until two officers arrived, at which time Johnson is said to have immediately challenged and then attacked the officers.

              Both officers first drew their taser guns. Johnson was hit by both tasers, but continued forward undaunted. While pursuing the officers, Johnson drew two large knives, which ultimately led to the shooting.

              Lincoln County District Court Donald Rowlands appointed a special prosecutor on Monday to convene a Grand Jury, which is required by state law in a law enforcement shooting. The sheriff’s office will present the findings of their investigation at the Grand Jury hearing, which has not yet been scheduled.

              The names of the officers involved in the shooting have still not been released and have been placed on administrative leave pending further notice.

                "Johnson's family wonders if the shooting could have been handled differently.

                Family wonders if he could not have been subdued instead of shot."

                They can "wonder" all they want, it doesn't change the fact this idiot presented an immediate threat to the officers' lives. The fact they (unsuccessfully) attempted to subdue him with their tasers, shows they had a reverence for human life and preferred to subdue him with less than lethal force. Too bad/so sad, but when that failed their survival depended upon deadly force. It's good to know they prevailed.
