    They'd have their offender cornered and unless they're shooting blind, there is NO reason all 6 cops would need to shoot at all. Only 1 cop should be assigned to shoot, it wouldn't be a go in and open fire situation. Also, it's my opinion that because the aisles are so thin, the only 2 people at risk of being stabbed would be the cops up front - therefore they should enter with the swat shields.
    Common sense.
    You have NO idea what you are talking about. I am not going to debate it. Seriously.

    So don't. I'm not debating at all. I'm stating my opinion.
    You quoted me, stated your thoughts, I had every right to respond with mine.

    Your opinion on police tactics is wrong. I am stating that you have no idea what you are talking about, your suggestions about what *should* have happened are idiotic and prove my point about the armchair quarterbacks. That is MY opinion.

    The beauty of having an opinion, is the fact that opinions can't be *wrong*. I'm not stating my opinion as fact, I'm stating my opinion as thought because that's what opinions are.

    Laurensmom, you are getting really rude and mean here. People are just offering their opinions, which you earlier claimed to be doing also, and clearly getting upset when others argued with you. Isis may not have the best idea of what would happen in this sort of situation because has never found herself trapped on a street car with a knife wielding maniac.... (If my spelling is wrong, please don't bother correcting me....)

    I think you need to simmer down a lot here, and understand the fact that others *may* disagree with you and think that the situation could have been handled in a much better manner than has happened. I get that your DH is a cop, and you will fight tooth and nail for the side of the cop, but seriously, there is no need to get so mean about it.

    How do you know it wasn't? The whole event took 6 min. There wasn't nearly time for them to arrive.

    *I* am being rude? I think YOU were a might rude last night actually.

    Isis said the police were idiots, I replied that her suggestions were idiotic. And, they were. People are welcome to voice their opinions, as am I. But when people who have NO IDEA what they are talking about try and say what *should* have happened, you can be damn sure I will correct anything that is inaccurate.

    It's all in speculation.
    Regardless, 9 shots was not necessary and I absolutely agree with those who feel the officer was out of line here.

    That was just rude.

    I get that you have police in your family - so your sympathies are with the police, and hoping that no police officers are harmed or killed during thier work day - that makes sense and is perfectly reasonable... behaving as though everyone should agree with you however, is unreasonable.
