  1. No surprise here; just another example of the NWO law enforcement goons following orders to eliminate as many sheeple as they can! Really, this old, decrepit lady was of no imminent threat to this officer! Where was his mace or rubber bullets in a call such as this; there was no excuse for him/her not to be prepared and properly armed to dispatch of this incident! WTFU!

    1. Disagree. The woman, 75, was NOT ‘OLD”. Decrepit is NOT a word I’d use either….impaired and out of control~ yes. Certainly, our law ‘enforcement’ officers are definitely “NOT” :GOONS, either. As reported~ the weapons in her hands were LETHAL devices. The family members knew she was presenting a PROBLEM….to herself and others! Put yourself in that situation. Would mace, rubber bullets and/or a tazer suffice for your own personal defense ? Or protection of others?

      1. Yes they probably would suffice. As a person who has worked with demented patients, redirection is the key, not lethal force. We all know that the more you force, the harder they get to deal with. The more you redirect their attention and focus, the easier they are to control. The officers were not trained for this, that is not their fault. The system failed by not sending a person trained in dementia care to the scene to advise and inform. There are many ways this situation could have been defused. Sad for everybody involved.

    2. no imminent threat. the police were called by a family member to handle a female with a knife in each hand.
      the police are not psychologists!
      this woman should have been in a memory care facility where she could not hurt herself or anyone else.

  2. The average cop is not exactly the most intelligent or caring individual in our contemporary society, they are mostly cut from the same cloth, they start out
    as young gung ho guys who are fascinated by uniforms and guns, and the aura of
    machismo and authority that comes with the job description.

    I am no longer surprised by ”incidents” like these, where totally innocent people are gunned down in cold blood by idiots in uniform who most likely in their imagination see themselves as a heroic ”Dirty Harry” character!

    1. The officers were not trained for this, that is not their fault. The system failed by not sending a person trained in dementia care to the scene to advise and inform. We who work with demented patients all know that the more you force, the harder they get to deal with. The more you redirect their attention and focus, the easier they are to control. The health system fails to because it is so expensive to get these victims into a proper care setting. And I am glad for police and their willingness to put their lives on the line to protect me. Thank you good cops!!!

  3. The family should never have called the police if they did not want the reaction they received. The police react to anyone with a weapon.

  4. The cop was probably responding to a violence call.
    Finding panicked ladies there didn’t ease his fears.
    Would any sane person walk up and gently take away the knives???

  5. If the family would of called 911 and ask for an ambulance to there resident and told the operator that there mother had dementia and was out of her mind; then maybe things would of come out different. calling the police is ok, but explain the situtation a little better than what they did.
