  • Video: Fort Bend County Police Shooting (NSFW)

    NSFW -- Graphic



    Tense stand off. Looks like the officers did the best they could. They gave him every opportunity to drop the knife.

    My next move would be to whup that Sergeant's *** for not utilizing his Taser. He had multiple opportunities to do so, and basically just stood there and watched. He even had it in his hand early on, and re-holstered it.

      First taser was deployed at 2:16, you can also see the wires later, a second deployment was at 2:46. The second one knocked the guy down and he received several additional shocks from it until about the 4:00 mark. The officer was doing pretty good with at least trying to calm the guy down until the charge at 5:10. (You can see the subject pulling the wires out just before the charge)

      I can think of things I might have done differently (I probably never would have gone into the bathroom) but overall it was handled about as well as it could have been.

        Props to the officer for clear directions and attempting to de-escalate with calm instructions. The suspect had lots of time to consider his actions and change this outcome. It seems he wanted to die.

          What video are you watching?

          They used a taser multiple times.

          In any case, there is at least one department here that has a policy AGAINST utilizing less-lethal force vs deadly force.

          overall it was handled about as well as it could have been.
          This.

            Suicide by cop. At 2:49 is when the officer says: "drop the knife". At that point, the suicide-by-cop process is started by the suspect. The officers say "drop the knife" (or similar) another 53 times after that. Then the suspect charges with the knife. That's body language for "kill me".

              He was using the taser. The prongs were still in the suspect, you can see the wires hanging out of the taser. The Sgt kept pulling the trigger on the taser delivering the shock to the suspect.

              Good job by the officers.

                Shoulda had my glasses on when I watched it, I guess. I totally missed that.

                How do you say "tunnel vision"? My focus was on the officer that ended up taking the shots.

                My bad. (And my apologies to the Sergeant.)

                    That's tough. I think they did about as well as a patrol officer could do.

                    The only other options I see would be LL Shotgun, which may have still had little to no effect. Or call SWAT. Perhaps tear gas and flashbangs could have disoriented him enough to get the knife away from him, but even that is "iffy".

                    I do realize that SWAT and LL Shotgun may not have been available to them.

                    I commend the officers for their efforts. You can absolutely see the immediate pain the officer feels when he had to shoot him. That's a sh*tty, sh*tty night! Glad no officers were hurt.

                      Meh, what happened is what happened. I wonder why clearing the house of all others and setting up a perimeter and handling it like a barricaded subject wasn't done?

                      If you can get negotiators and SWAT guys there the chances go down that you are going to have to kill the guy.

                        Hmm.. yeah close range.

                        Maybe just evacuate the house and tell them to return the next morning and see if he's in a better mood?

                          Couldn't be done here. Two officers on shift, SWAT team 1-2 hours away after a mutual aid request is put out...

                            IMO it was a good shoot.

                            On a side note, Whose camera was recording this? Kinda looks like the family set the camera up in hopes they can catch the Police using force and sue.

                              That was my first thought - who is recording this?
