We're the Only Ones Helping You Along Enough...

So this guy was in the process of sawing off his own leg when the officers arrived...

And the best they can do to "help" him is to gun him down when he "rushes" them.

Let's see. Leg half sawn off...armed with, well, a blade of some sort I guess...charging speed .001mph. Yeah, I guess lethal force was probably justified.

I know, I know. I wasn't there and I'm in no position to make the call whether or not they responded appropriately. But if the Only Ones shooting (to death) a suicidal man doesn't deserve a closer look, I don't know what does.

This one's just plain tragic any way you cut it.

Special thanks to alert (and only) reader Isaac T for bringing this to my attention.

Hey, hey now. Don't be so hard on yourself. I gave my younger brother the address to the page (so if you start getting comments from someone playing devil's advocate all the time, it's probably him). Anywhoo, thanks for the funny post. I still can't believe it happened in Davenpit.

Oh great, just what I need. A lawyer shooting my arguments full of holes just for fun.

Totally kidding, if you're reading Zach. Prov. 27:17, after all. Iron sharpens iron.

I of course, welcome all comments.

(Except for the spam from Cialis that I got a few weeks ago. What the heck is up with that?)
