The bullets don't go in the machete, the machetes come out of the gun.

He was probably expecting the officer to have a spoon, for one of the classic knifey spoony standoffs

This is another, of many, examples as to why you need a "high capacity" magazine for a firearm.

Kid was shot 3-4 times and wasn't fazed at all.  He kept coming at the officer.  Officer fired another volley and hit the kid around 1-2 more times.  Sounds like the cop fired around 10 shots total.  And that's not even bad marksmanship.  A handgun is not an accurate weapon.  Firing around 10 times and hitting 5 times is pretty good for a moving target.

10 shots to incapacitate a single individual.  Imagine if there had been more attackers.

The fact that Joerg normally shuns wearing any safety gear will tell you that even he thinks that's an especially dangerous design.

Cops should shoot more criminals.
 
2020-08-14 3:37:07 PM  
CBC has a story with a video of the shooting here.

You can see just how close this kid got to the officer before the cop resorted to lethal force it says a lot for the quality of the officers involved that they gave him every opportunity before shooting him.

While nothing you said is factually wrong, you have made the mistake of saying it on Fark. Saying words which can be characterized by a motivated observer as not actively anti-gun are not acceptable on this premises.  Please remain where you are while the WhidbeySquad finalizes the location of your account for termination.

Also, who wasn't upset about Eric's Trip breaking up?  Other than Eric's Trip.

Maybe the cop should be investigated for being such a poor shot.  five bullets, and the perp is still alive.  You suck at shooting.
 
2020-08-14 4:04:56 PM  
Most likely the kid thought he would just respawn with better load out.

I still remember watching that the first time was a kid.  I LOL'd, and was beyond surprised.

He was drillpress guy but with machetes. In fact, we should call drillpress guy "machete guy but with drillpresses".

That was one of his really early contraptions. 9 years ago. And even HE admits it was a stupid idea. Considering some of the other things he's built, that's saying something.

This is the 7/11 closest to my home in Winnipeg. Can't tell you how many times I've had to deek out young muggers hanging out around this place on my way home after the bar. Thankfully, today's hoodlums aren't as streetwise as us ol'dogs. Sadly, there's a red light district across the street, with a corner that numerous women have gone missing from.

Just FYI - I love Winnipeg. It hits above its weight, culturally, a small city with a ballet, symphony, numerous play houses and a good live music scene. You can also access pretty much every vice available in larger city centers. I enjoy a city where there's the potential to be stabbed. It makes for a more interesting Friday night!

Per TFA: "wounded."

I'll take that over "shot 382 times"

Ask a cop in the US to shoot to wound and they laugh at you for being a noob.

Gee, maybe in Canada, the cops *don't* shoot to kill, and know that the country's not a free fire zone?
