A woman who had already wounded a police officer approached another brandishing this.


If you were the second cop what would you do?

Absolutely whatever is needed, to ensure she does not get within 21 inches of me.

I have been in that situation a couple of times, there is no straight answer. On the first occasion attending a domestic dispute the girl concerned picked up a carving knife when I entered the kitchen. Saying the first thing that came into my head, which was,"You can put that fucking thing down now" it actually worked and she did (to much relief).

The problem is that there is a likelihood that the person you are dealing with may well be mentally ill (since the available treatment in this country is dire). Do you want to kill them? The favoured option is the Tazer, if I'd been forced to carry a gun I would have resigned the job.
