    He literally ran at them with a knife and yelled at them and people are still saying they were in the wrong
    Are people really this blinded by race politics?

  2. shaidul Al on December 16, 2021 at 11:06 am

  4. Scott Pepper on December 16, 2021 at 11:07 am

  5. Mookaron Tha Don on December 16, 2021 at 11:07 am

    Dude apparently had mental issues! I seen them detain be ass wild gators without killing them on private property, but I guess this guy was more deadly!

  6. Tim Murray on December 16, 2021 at 11:07 am

    The damn kid had a small pocket knife! You have 2 cops, I completely agree with them doing their jobs, but if they were smart key word here (SMART) HOW ABOUT USING A DAMN TASER!! Then you shoot the kid 14 times then hand cuff him as if he is a threat ? Wow. Dudes brain is the size of acorn if you ask me!

  7. Antone Lost In Asia on December 16, 2021 at 11:08 am

    Really? These two retarded Police officers need to be given jail time for illegal use of unnecessary force, if I was the Judge I would give them the death penalty for lack of concern for human life.

  8. Eus Privat on December 16, 2021 at 11:08 am

    Lets just sprinkle some crack on him

  9. Ben Morgan on December 16, 2021 at 11:09 am

    We’re trained that you don’t decide that the person is dead until EMS verifies it

  10. Little Tomatoe ! on December 16, 2021 at 11:09 am

    I think there are two types of guys you are facing as a police officer in this situations. The aggressive and the more reasonable one. The reasonable man sees your gun and sees your backup and he gives up. Unfortunately the first type doesn’t care for that. The first type you really have to comfort , be nice to him and cool his fire with water. The police usually doesn’t do that so something like this will happen again and again. I think that female officers are better with those situations ( they are probably more empathic than the average man, no offence )because I saw a video with a female police officer who was attacked by a man armed with a knife and she backed up several times, told him to drop the knife like ten times and then fired a single shot at him. He dropped and the thing was over. That was awesome police work !

    smart ass asked for it.

  12. CaptDeano57 on December 16, 2021 at 11:11 am

    So I guess you people STILL DON’T UNDERSTAND that when Police roll up and get out with GUNS DRAWN, it’s time to drop your weapon or take a ride to the CORONERS OFFICE.

  13. Junio bohol on December 16, 2021 at 11:11 am

  25. Andy Rock on December 16, 2021 at 11:26 am

    But did they have to when he was on the ground?

  26. Vegeta_Goku 427 on December 16, 2021 at 11:27 am

    sure he had a knife but did he deserve to die? the police pulled up on him guns loaded ready to shoot and keep shoting after he hit the ground.

  27. Tony Koo on December 16, 2021 at 11:29 am

    Suicide by police officer. He had a death wish and it was fulfilled.

  30. Jon Doe on December 16, 2021 at 11:31 am

    Update: One of the killers in this video, Ellis Brown III, was sentenced to 6 years in prison for beating a suspect.

  31. Scott Patrick on December 16, 2021 at 11:32 am

  33. Koda_51 on December 16, 2021 at 11:35 am

    Idiot. Should of drop the knife. They gave him enough warnings. Stupid. Follow the commands. Simple.

  34. Steve Mack on December 16, 2021 at 11:36 am

    They always cuff people. Alive or dead.

  35. LostTacos on December 16, 2021 at 11:36 am

    What exactly do cops use tazers for these days? Seemed like the perfect choice for this situation

  36. Rami Lucky on December 16, 2021 at 11:40 am

    Good I like that he said he want to go listen when the police said something be smart move do what the police said but these people’s dum big dum go

  38. Young Keazy on December 16, 2021 at 11:43 am

    Was it really necessary to keep shooting AFTER he was already down…

  39. Stan Manfredy on December 16, 2021 at 11:44 am

    One shoot to leg its solve the problem

  40. Ana Sanchez on December 16, 2021 at 11:46 am

    I hope they classify this as a crime by police and not self defense. These people should get deported. They violated his rights as an American and should be deported to a communist country. Cops are Mking Americans unsafe

  41. Michael Poyntz on December 16, 2021 at 11:48 am

    You gotta know that if you go at a cop today with a weapon in your hands you are going to die! The cops didn’t just kill him…he killed himself!

  42. Tony Koo on December 16, 2021 at 11:51 am

    He knew what he was doing. He wanted to die, but he didn’t want to kill himself. I can only imagine how much pain he was in order to do this. The police put him out of his misery.

    Rest In Peace brother.

  43. Ana Sanchez on December 16, 2021 at 11:53 am

    I hope everyone writes a letter to their congress. That cops have to have jury trials so, a judge doesn’t give them a pass when they are wrong. Cops always go for a bench trial to avoid a jury. Judges always find an excuse in their favor. Write to the state legislation to change the law for blue uniform criminals don’t get a free pass on murder. Jury trial. We need these criminals in jail since they don’t understand the constitution send them to communist country

  44. Rellz Rizzle on December 16, 2021 at 11:56 am

    St Louis police just evil asf

  45. Seetalfahrzeuge GmbH Seon on December 16, 2021 at 11:58 am

  46. souza barro on December 16, 2021 at 11:58 am

    Still have the corpse at gun point

  47. Ivan- on December 16, 2021 at 11:58 am

    Cops are pussys

  48. John on December 16, 2021 at 11:59 am

    I understand why they shot but does anyone know why they shoot so many times even after he’s subdued? Seriously just curious

  49. fallenpatriot 79 on December 16, 2021 at 12:00 pm

    He was armed with a deadly weapon and he advanced toward the police with it after repeatedly told to drop it. This is self defense plain and simple. The police acted as they have been trained. An average person with a knife or other contact weapon can advance 21 feet in 2 seconds–AVERAGE. A person in good physical shape and possibly hopped up on drugs can do it in closer to 1.5 seconds. The criminal also has the advantage of the fact that action always beats reaction. These facts are a part of all police training. The average person more often than not doesn’t know these things.

    I have a question for all individuals who are playing this whole what about less lethal cry baby bullshit. If a man is approaching you with a large fixed blade would the use of lethal force be more appropriate in your eyes? Less lethal is often ineffective against it’s intended target. Ems for 5 years in houston and have seen time and time again officers severely and even critically injured due to ineffectiveness of less lethal (especially when target is high or experiencing excited delirium). So having said this think, use your head and be open minded. If someone is approaching you with intent to harm or kill. Do you want to hope less lethal works, and then if is ineffective again hope that you can use lethal force before he inflicts severe damage to you or even kills you. Also dr. Dumbass in the background. He’s dead why they cuffing him? Because that would not be first or last time an officer made that assumption and it cost then their lives. So many pussies making comments. I can almost guarantee none of them have been in a possibly lethal conflict and I KNOW for fact none of these cunts have been in foreign wars. When someone wants to kill you, you have the right to be nervous and ready to respond in the same manner as they intend to. 12bravo 4 life
