The few eyewitness reports I read said the guy was charging at the police with meat cleavers raised. Trying to digest news like this as it breaks is a mug's game.
He said the police shouted no warnings or made warning shots. The 2 guys were walking to the Police, hands down by their sides.
I don't think police are meant to wait for people to shoot at them. Doing that gets you shot.
Eye witness just made a Han/Greedo statement... Uh-oh
Anyone know the actual protocol for firing at two *suspects*?
