Calling all socialist cry-babies

You know what... you're right... I don't think cops should have used a taser here either...

A man died Tuesday after police used a Taser to subdue him, in what is believed to be the first such case in Winnipeg.

Witnesses told CTV Winnipeg the unidentified man, reportedly in his 20s, had been wielding a knife.
This guy had a knife... they should have played it safe and put a couple of 9 mils center-mass.

You call a play like this... just don't be too surprised when someone "Lawrence Taylors" your dim-witted criminal ass.


RELATED: Never saw it this coming, huh?
“He would carry a little knife, because you know what?"

"That's what kids do."
Well, Mom... I don't know how to break this to you... but that's not what kids do around here.
I didn't approve of it, but how are you going to stop that? Especially in this rotten city.”
Uh, here's a thought... you could been somehow involved in his life.
She hadn't seen him for two weeks, she said, because he had been staying with his father, who lives in a rooming house and gets his money panhandling on Main Street.

She was told her son had once been to hospital and said he had used crack, but Ms. Shymko doesn't know whether that's true.
If only there were more social workers.

Actually, I think that the Winterpeg cops use the Glock 22 in .40 cal... :P

Dennis is correct on the .40 calibre.

Very effective on thugs with screwdrivers.

Considering how often these things kill people, isn't this a perfect example of when to use a taser?

If someone was freaking out at me with a knife I'd feel better knowing he had some brand-spankin' new holes in him.

"anon says... Dennis is correct on the .40 calibre."

i remember the first time i compared .45 acp to 9mm... and 40 s&w is 45 cal on steroids.

Already we're hearing how he was such a good kid.

I'll bet his death was caused by head injury when he fell.

It'd only be too ironic if he fell on his own knife.

note that 8 canadians are killed every day in traffic accidents in canada.

how about we ban automobiles and really save some (mostly non-violent, mostly non-crack addicted) lives.
