"Shocking and shameful"
From the Chronicle's Letters to the Editor, April 12:
I find it disheartening that heavily armed and trained law officers were unable, without killing him in a rain of bullets, to disarm and subdue one possibly dazed and confused homeless man with a kitchen knife. It appears that the only force left willing to risk their own lives and safety to save human life is the fire department. The inability of police, often in numbers, here and around the country, to subdue men and boys, unarmed or with only a blade, without an over-the-top armed response, is shocking and shameful. We focus a lot on race issues, as we should, but we might also want to look at plain incompetence as well.
Thanks to SF1st.
