In a shocking story from Las Vegas, where in unhinged man knocked out a police officer who was attempting to detain him after be breached a secure door.
Another officer then shot the man twice in order to stop his rampage.
As The Daily Mail reports:
A man is undergoing surgery after he was shot by officers at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas on Thursday morning, officials said.
Officers of the Las Vegas Metro Police Department were alerted to a door breach at Terminal 3 and found the man out on the tarmac near Terminal 1 at 3:30am.
The man was then approached by three officers, who attempted to escort him back to a public area, however the person became ‘extremely irate’ and attacked one of the officers, knocking him unconscious.
A second officer then attempted to de-escalate the situation with non-lethal means but the individual also attacked that officer and pushed him to the ground.
Sorry to hear that he wasn’t “shot dead”!
The guy who got shot deserved it! Was his name Abdul Badussy?
Montgomery: Unconscious officer charged and jailed for assault. Montgomery newspaper champions the person, raises community awareness and gets an award, So if it happened here.
Broke through security door next time shoot first or taser or stun gun before they attack
If the situation was as reported then I feel the LEO’s action was justified. But I am certain there are Snowflakes out there who will ask: Was the guy armed? Wasn’t there some other way to resolve the situation? After all, there were still one or more officers who hadn’t been taken down.
Keep up the good work, Officers, I know I would feel more comfortable there knowing you’re on the job.
