According to WCVB: "Man shot by police in Boston had posted threats to police on social media - saying he would challenge them if caught".

If are holding a weapon in your hand and multiple cops tell you multiple times to drop it and you refuse, well, that is pretty much PSGWSP.

Never made a threatening move, just refused to comply so he was shot like a dog. #BostonStrong
You have little clue as to how dangerous a man with a knife is then. Something to educate to especially to protect your own life.

Edit: watch the video posted.

Statists love statists.

Cops have guns drawn on a knife-wielding man. If he flinches, he's going to be shot. But if he doesn't move, and doesn't comply, murder is justified....

Jackass, if the idiot isn't moving and you tell him to do something, if he doesn't comply, that's your justification to kill him? I hope you don't have any kids to teach your wisdom to....

Based on quote FROM BDP, he didn't attack them, unlike the guy from a few days prior. BPD escalated and attacked him. Typical bullcrap cop work. Escalate till they win and you're captured or you're dead technique. Nothing to see here, move along...

"...The shooting came 2½ weeks after Boston police and FBI agents from a Joint Terrorism Task Force shot and killed Usaamah Rahim, 26, of Roslindale, who had allegedly lunged at the investigators with a military-style knife..."

Vs

"...BU graduate student Chelsea Reid said she saw a shirtless man running along the Esplanade and said several officers jumped out of a van and gave chase..."

So, the cops chased him, and murdered him. According to their own words. But let me guess, hearsay?.....smh

You dont even have the correct PD that did the shooting. MSP ( and I am no fan of them at all) were involved. The guy had a warrant, the MSP were trying to serve the warrant. Shake your head all youd like, but at least have a clue as to what took place.

Perhaps you've never done a Tueller drill?

A person with at a standstill can cover 20' in about 1-2 seconds. If he his holding a knife in his hand, previously running away from cops, refuses multiple orders to drop the knife, that justifies deadly force. Is he an immediate threat of death or grave bodily injury? He sure is.

You're not accurate either. The MSP shot the mentally ill person but BU PD recognized his open warrant and attempted to arrest him.

A reminder: you can disagree with people without being disagreeable. If you can't disagree without calling people names, then you are likely to earn yourself a vacation.

In the north woods likely hunting or trapping
Ill wait until the body cam vids are released or more details. However I will say if you flee from the cops with a knife, and when approached, pull out the knife and make a move towards the officer while he is ordering you to drop it, well sh*t is not gonna go well for you sparky.

MSP do not have body cams, not sure about BU cops. I have not heard anything about video so I doubt they do either.

Dead guy has a very long record including 21 yrs in prison (he was 42 yrs old or so) 3 convictions for assault with a deadly weapon, in 2009 he tried to kill his sister with a samuri sword then attack the cops and their cars with it when they came, etc.

Not sure how someone with his record is out of prison after trying to kill someone with a sword in '09. But it's massachusetts, so that explains it.

so if this guy were in a hospital he would be Section 12'ed....clearly some screws are loose here.

i cannot see the knife in the pictures so I'm presuming it's either small or he dropped it? further they had him cornered on a footbridge. perhaps i'm confused but don't we spend all sorts of tax $$ on furnishing and training law enforcement w nonlethal methods?

my guts cringe whenever LEO's gun down a mentally ill person that isn't posing an immediate threat....in this case none of us can say with any certainty whether this guy was going to hurt anyone. there's simply no way to know. Regardless, the LEO who shot him gets to live the rest of their life wondering whether they took a life for no reason.

mentally disturbed or not, if the cop yelled " drop the knife or i'll shoot you in the nuts" would likely get 99% compliance in these scenarios.

Were you there?

Were you?

The eyewitness report I read stated that the dude wasn't moving, he was shot once, then three more times.

If the knife wielding guy was a barking dog (pick your breed) you'd all be pissed off, 21 feet away or not.

I'm about as anti statist as they come, heck I don't even like borders or anything, but what I read is that the police had him trapped and he lunged at one with his knife. If that is what happened, the shooting was justified. Using a taser first might be more reasonable against someone completely unarmed.
