yeah, I’m 170 too and I agree with you, I’d empty my gun. We aren’t in the position to know what happened, nor do we have the resources available to police. I have a concealed carry permit and if a 6’3″ 300 lb guy charged me I’d empty my Glock 10mm into him as well.

We aren’t cops, at least I’m not, so I don’t carry a taser, nor do I have the option of calling back up. If the guy walked away, would I tell him to “freeze”? I don’t know, maybe, but I’m sure I would’ve called back up before doing so. There are certain situations where cops have no choice, maybe this was one of them, but I’ll say this,┬áin the last several years there have been a lot more situations where police have been excessive than not, IMHO.

I live in a small town and our police and sheriff have found it necessary to apply for and get a “bearcat” armored vehicle. I’m wondering why? Whether we like it or not, police are becoming militarized and I’m not sure that’s a good thing.

As always, JMHO.
