I would have shot that woman. That was assault with a deadly weapon. As far as I am concerned there were four counts of attempted murder. Slashing officers and pushing one over the balcony is insane.

With that being said; there were four trained officers. I can see one, maybe two of them injured, but for all four cops to be either cut or shoved off a balcony shows a serious mistake on their part.

Again, if you come after me with a knife I will not taze you, oc you, etc. I will shoot you to defend myself.

The problem is - if one guy starts "rasslin" with her to try to get the knife away, or he didn't notice the knife, then you have a situation where it is very difficult to shoot. I wasn't there, but I can see how it could happen. I once tied up with a guy and didn't realize he had a knife in his hand (going from bright outside to dim inside) until I knocked him down and he dropped the knife. Me and partnet jumped in him, and were in a position that if either of us shot, we would most likely hit the other.

**** happens. Sometimes bad guys don't play by the rules of making it obvious they have a weapon, and presenting you with a good shot. Bastards.

I would too.

Look what happened with the 9/11 hijackers using box cutters.

Call me paranoid, but I constantly train and enjoy beating the crap out of a punching bag or sparring partner.

Right now I am severely overweight, but I can still defend myself in a hand to hand situation.

My 12 yr old daughter is now leading my workout regiment. She said she not have a fluffy dad. Lol
