no training for these cops they should be vetted before being released on the streets with a gun...guns should locked in trunk

If children see police armed, they'll grow up thinking guns are good. Alot of police work is dealing with children, so guns aren't necessary. Why teach children guns are good?.

you have to wonder why about three shots were fired even after their initial shots had put him on the ground

I would have shot this violent thug instantly. Many lives were saved by exterminating this predator.
Cilcito 62 (25 days ago)
docbar a British police officer could have asked him to behave, gave him a little lecture, then let him go on his way. Because I never saw a knife and the man didnt do anything wrong. If he did have a knife, he'd have been tazered.
docbar (2 months ago)
Are you fucking kidding me? This was absolutely a justifiable shooting. What the hell is wrong with you people?
No it was not, police should only use guns if the criminal has a gun not a knife
Robin18us (2 months ago)
The man was about 6.5 ft away when he was shot. If he was holding a knife and didn't drop it and was approaching the policeman, the police have a right to shoot. A man with a knife can move very fast at that distance, BUT, after one shot and the man fell, the police had no right to continue firing. If the man had a gun in his hand, yes, but being down on the ground with a knife can't hurt the police. He wasn't just shot to be stopped, but murdered after he was down

Shoot the guy in the leg and stand back if they have a knife if they feel threatened if they have a gun then no quarter given.
STFU 3 (2 months ago)
What did he expect was gonna happen? The point that his hand was over his head or not is irrelevant if I have a knife by my side I'd stab you just as easy if not easier than over my head. The guy was bent on committing suicide by cop. The cops weren't Rambo etc stop the bullshit rhetoric. The cop doesn't have to put his life in jeopardy for the selfish wishes of a knife wielding Moron. Calling the police freaks negates the behavior of the guy with the knife. How does it have anything to do with the color of his skin fucking Race baiting fool.

I always love it when the cops continue to shoot at the body after they have dropped it with bullets. That is absolutely shameful. And there are lots of police video showing them do it. It's disgusting. And these two thugs are such bad asses that they can show up and get out and start firing. What is this Gunsmoke, or America?

Do what other U.K. cops did to a guy with a machete and just throw a wheelie bin at them then taser them not unload about 12 rounds (I know, it’s quite a small amount but I don’t see why not) into some guy they don’t know has a knife.

21 weeks or 820 -840 hrs training for a Police officer in the USA ...Compare that to Europe TWELVE MONTHS to TWO YEARS training for police officers who can be dismissed within that time if they are not fit or come up to scratch and are usually in company with an experienced long serving officer .....for that time ..........Google it ........just saying !!!!!

This show and everyone that respond are a bunch f-ing morons. There needs to be a class in school that educates you in reality, so the police don’t have to keep explaining the same things over and over and over again.

I think all US police should have mandatory training in UK. And stop gun loving idiots joining the police force because all they want to do is go shooting especially people.

British police aren't perfect but they're still amazing compared to many. US police need to catch up to the times and stop living like cowboys where guns are so important.
Aurelian Spodarec (4 months ago)
The UK should have something better than tazors anyway. Perhaps a super strong rubber bullet gun. Tazors don't always work, the instance there in Buckingam Palace might have ended the police getting stabbed. It happen in fact, 3-4police officer with a K9 unit tazered a guy that had a hammer, but it didn't work. Police got hit on the neck, miracle that waasn't on the ehad and miracle the officer survived. When I think about the UK, they are doing great job on not killing the civilians, but them you have criminals that could kill the UK cops because they aren't just armed well enough. I'm not saying guns is the solution, no, but you have other stuff such as riot shiled... how many times I saw UK cops run from a knife... they have no cover! They go into a tube or something with a tazor, the tazors don't work... and what next? Run for your life!

As I do have feelings for the death of the brown boy...... Looking back on the videos that have been shown since this happened.... He was in the convenience store... Very...veeeeeery disrespectful to the store owner and workers... Trashing the store displays..... Grabbing a man by the neck..... Sooner or later he would be incarcerated... And if returned to society... Even worse than before he went inside. He was shown as being a “ good “ boy.....this he was NOT. Yes a life that has now expired.....will no longer be with his family.

richard howard (5 months ago)
In Britain if an armed response officer uses his fire arm then a major investigation gets started into whether the use of deadly force was needed or not. Plus any armed police in the UK have to get authorisation from a commanding officer before they are allowed to use force. And police do get prosecuted here for some killings.
Tyrant (6 months ago)
Yeah the cops are all on edge and you Brits seem sort of clueless as to why. Let me break it down for you so you can stop trying to teach us how to non violently take down 5 cartel members with machine guns. There are so many fucking guns here, that cops are scared shitless and think everyone has a gun and they do stupid shit sometimes as a result. Certain parts of cities, are literal war zones. I don't think you can draw a comparison here. US cops could learn to stop being trigger happy for sure, but the UK is a lot nicer of a place from what it seems, but I'm almost 100% positive your best men would ne shredded by our worst criminals.

If that happened in the uk there would be mad rioting the police would of been getting their heads smashed in by flaming bottles. A guy got shot in London in 2010 I think and there were huge riots.
User (7 months ago)
But why is a man holding a knife, approaching police shouting " shoot me " expect to NOT be shot? Like c'mon, the man was literally asking for it. If he would of of obeyed with the officers instead of being a threat he wouldn't of gotten shot.
Vanessa Perry (7 months ago)
Dang, this is ridiculous! How many more ppl have to loose their lives because of ignorant cowards. The US gov is probably responsible for all this police violence and crimes. They just wants to get rid of criminals (including black ppl). It's so much cheaper and easier to kill and bury a criminal than to keep them alive in jail. It's all about $$$$. That is what this is all about.

Why use a lethal weapon? Don't they have Tasers? The mentally disturbed victim falls at the first shot, so why shoot so many times? These police are clearly mentally unsuitable for mixing with the public. And yeah, I guess they must be racist.

America has twice as many people in prison than South Africa wich is a rough, failed place! Americans say there free when they have twice as many as the next nation on the list with more people locked up in jail!! It's mad! Every ex British colony is free and stands on British principles just like america does also. Nothing special about the American constitution! Every ex British colony has one, and the American one is based of the British one along with American law system.... Britain has far more claims than America to be free and have the best constitution.

rationalguy (9 months ago)
No, in the USA, cops are trained to shoot anyone to death if it's perceived that they may be even the slightest threat. To them, it's important to put as many bullets in as possible. He must be killed, as a wounded man poses a lot of bother. He can sue.

The US Police Force infuriates me. "Forced to open fire"? Did he have a gun? No. In Britain this situation would not have turned fatal. Partly because British Police only use lethal weapons as an extreme resort and partly because British Police know only a baton and pepper spray are necessary in this kind of situation

qwertyTech (10 months ago)
Coming from a UK perspective, the officers should have distanced themselves further, and should have fired one shot or a double tap to see if he went down. If he didn't, then they could have fired more. Here's the thing that people forget. US cops do not have stab proof vests unlike all UK police officers. They have bullet proof vests like our firearms officers. Bullet vests don't protect against knife attacks for the most part, because I remember when they were tested by UK police in the mid to late nineties. So there was quite a risk to them if they didn't shoot etc. However, there needs to be a programme in the US that issues all departments with Tasers. It's hard to justify this in any country.

A few years ago I watched two Australian police officers dealing with a violent drunk who was waving a kitchen knife about. I thought at the time that they were far more violent towards the guy than British police would of been...but, they never touched their side arms, it didn't cross their minds, they whipped out their batons and piled into him.
ZadZadrack (10 months ago)
I think most American Viewers of this Video ought to know that: 1. In UK both the people and the police RESPECT each other, and therefore, there is no need for use of VIOLENCE by either side in any matter. 2. However, there exceptions when the Policed is faced with some serious Law-breaker that appears to be DIFFICULT to apprehend, and therefore, a Tazer is used. In Extrem cases Fire Arms are used ONLY BY WELL TRAINED ARMED UNITS each member of which is responsible for every single bullit he/she fires, and if there is a death occurring, then an Independent Police Investigation Authority is informed immediate, and it' s the Job of that independent authority to investigate and establish if there was any WRONG-DOING on the part of the Police Officer/s, etc. 3. As UK Citizens we always obey Police instructions, be it if get stopped in our vehicle whilst driving, or if we are approached by a Police Officer all most the majority of Citizens stop and show the Police Officer respect, and appreciate how the Police ALWAYS address the members of the Public as: "Sir", or "Madam". Of course sometimes some members of the public seem to be drunk, or down right rude, but our UK Police are well trained at TOLERATING such unsociable behaviour, and they know that after the arrest an offender, he/she apologises to the Police for being drunk, rude, and unruly towards the Officers. 4. Of course, on several occasions, our Police Force make some serious 'ERROR' of judgement, but no matter how long it takes, such Officers who behave outside the Law can be brought to Justice at anytime in the future to face their wrong-doing. 5. It's all about UK Citizens and Police work together for the safety of all. Of course, our system is FAR FROM PERFECT, but somehow, WE IN THE UK ARE MORE CIVILISED than USA when it comes to maintaining LAW & ORDER in general. American Police Officers are a bunch of WAYWARD AND WILD AND UNRULY BUNCH, and they should never be compared to our CIVILISED UK POLICE FORCE IN ANYWAY, SHAPE, OR FORM.

The interesting thing about the clips of the British cops dealing with knife wielding loonatics is that the second clip is the arrest of the guy who moments before being taken into custody he'd beheaded a solider called Lee Rigby in the middle of a busy street and the perpetrator was known to have links to 'home grown radical Islamic groups' prior to this incident! Yet our police managed to subdue him and bring him in alive and physically fit enough to be questioned, no guns used and yet there were armed units in the vicinity!

for god sakes they are 2 against 1 and your afraid of a blade?? if they were scared they could have both pulled out a taser and then pepper spray. any real man though would have charged at him and disarmed him with ease. he was just a young punk, they pulled out their guns so fast you'd think the suspect was a trained special forces killer. i think its a systemic problem though. american men are really becoming soft pussies. when you depend on a gun for your protection it makes you a coward.

I think I counted 9 shots, is it protocol to unload the weapon if you shoot it once?
