Not gonna happen IRL. Warning shots are for tv cops also.

Likely, but that's not how it works.

Science Fiction: Cops have net guns like in the Fifth Element. Not real life. They are not going to fight the dude either.

Oh I know but it's very sad this had to happen. Can't wait til we know more and see the video.

Eta....also as I've said I've seen myself a situation where a guy freaking out was detained without violence. Cop probably didn't follow protocol but I'm sure he also didn't want to shoot a kid.

Cop disarmed himself, while having backup, and calmed him down and then detained him.

Probably not what his superiors would have wanted but why escalate something that doesn't need to be?

re: Student shot on USA campus was on LSD


Rough estimate? In ten years probably a couple hundred. Shot and killed one.

It was the on time when circumstances put me in a position where i was confronted by a junkie without nearby backup. He lunged at me with a knife i lunged st him with a .40.

I have a nice scar on my scalp from where a 5' tall woman. Strung out on drugs broke away from a trained leo and clocked me in the back of the head with a crockpot while i wws dealing with her equally drugged up bf. Size is irrelevant when a person is high

Where do thoughts like this even come from? Superiors are against de-escalation?

I said probably....because I have no clue as to what protocol is. According to some on here it sounds like it wouldn't be.

I don't know. Why couldn't this situation go down without gunfire? Did he have other officers there? If so, why couldn't he take down this could and detain him?

If you "don't know" then why are you talking about what would probably happen?

Yours has always appeared to be against it.

Saying they may not have agreed with it isn't saying what would probably happen. I never mentioned anything that would happen.

Alabama is strict on drugs. The kid was raving about being on a spiritual quest. Guess he got to meet his maker.

You said de-escalation was probably not what the superiors wanted. Somehow you are trying to now say that isn't a claim about what would happen. It certainly is. You are claiming that the response of the superiors would probably not be in favor of the officer's decisions...

re: Student shot on USA campus was on LSD


It seems to me that the shooting was justified based upon what I have read. It sucks for the kid, but it is a risk when you decide to take a a drug like LSD and lose self-control.

I am generally in favor of the PD when it comes to things like this due to the risk they have to take when dealing with idiots.

However, in this case, I think the family should get paid. I have a real problem with an entire department not having access to a few non-lethal options. What the hell else was going to happen when the cop goes outside with only a gun to diffuse the situation. There aren't very many options left at that point. I guess I am ignorant in this area but the first thing I thought when I read it was why didn't he use a taser, stun gun, mace, etc.

The officer should get a pass and the University/State/PD should be punished for failing to protect and serve. JMO.

This kid was an unarmed college student. No way in hell did the cop have a right to use lethal force. Sounds like a typical campus cop. Most of them are rednecks with little chance of ever advancing to a real police role. This is horrible.

So you'd like the officer to fist fight him in this case? The gun was the only thing the officer had.



i think you and i both know is that the point is that the officer should have had some sort of non lethal defense and should have exhausted that option first


officer should have had taser,pepperspray oer some other form of defense and if he didnt have access to it then that is the fault of the USAPD

and to call the dealer in this situation the murderer after just 2/3 days after the killing after stating that the investigation is ongoing and wasnt deciding anything right now is absurd

they are obviously trying to get the spotlight switched off of officer austin as well as themselves. You dont have to be close to the situation to see this

i see the parents of collar winning the case
