Cops are given radio run man with a gun.
They arrive see ml thats described in radio run.
Approx 15 ft away ml turns in a shooting stancevwith stainless piece of metal pipe shaped in a pistol grip and pipe barrel end lresembling a gun.
Perp turns fast at them.
Cops do not have cover reflexive draw their guns reasonably believe ml has a gun and in fear of loss to their lives. Fire strike ml he dies.
Easy to sit home behind a computer and say would of could of. But u are not a cop and never gone into harms way.
Brooklyn is a tough are of east ny. They hate cop and especially wh cops. Thats the same brooklyn ml with 45 automatic assasinated 2 nypd cops in their radio car. Not saying u kill blacks advising high tentions out there. And 2018 has been most violent yr for cops killed in 10yrs so far. Yea you see 8x11 glossy pic of the pipe on the news but cops had seconds to identify just a portion of that stainless pipe pointed at them.
Think before u monday quarterback the cop.

I do not know why anybody aspires to be a police officer anymore in this country... All these criminals are treated like they're terrific sweet people and the police are villians out to get them... it's so horrifyingly wrong, I can't even believe the nonsense happening in this country.

You’re not exactly being fair in your description, are you, lawfulpolicing?

You have less than .040 seconds to react to a threat.

When are they going to learn. You disrespect the Law and approach an Officer with anything that can be used to cause serious injury or death they can use there gun to protect themselves. In this case with a pipe he had intentions on beating that Cop to death. He got what he deserved for being such an entitled Black idiot.

Well said. Hands. Hands. Hands. You would think that people know this by now. A simple concept that a kindergartener understands: Listen. Raise your hands.

...And in another part on town cops fatally shoot a black man who was holding what was believed to be a broom over his shoulder but was actually an RPG.

It's called reasonable threat

Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

I once arrested a man who had what looked like a toy gun in his pocket. It was painted sky blue and had white plastic grips. It was a loaded 22LR revolver. Getting shot at numerous times didn't scare me as much as finding that gun because I knew the great majority of officers would hesitate to react. An officer I went through the academy with shot and killed a homeless man who committed suicide by cop via pointing a toy gun at him. It traumatized my friend. Incidents like these create a huge divide between law enforcement and the uncomprehending protected public.

At the Academy, they said, "There is a gun at every call; YOURS!" The public doesn't get that. A temporarily blinding punch in the nose or strike to the head and an unarmed perpetrator going for your gun and you have a fight for your life. Law enforcement officers take an oath, but they aren't getting paid to get hurt or killed. It's not "all part of the job" any more than dying in a fiery crash is part of having a driver's license.
