‘Drop the Knife!’

Posted on | July 31, 2020 | No Comments

Two weeks ago, we brought you the story of Daniel Hernandez, who was shot to death in Los Angeles after refusing to comply with a police officer’s repeated command: “Drop the knife!” You might think people would have learned this lesson by now, but stupidity is pandemic:

An intoxicated, knife-wielding man was shot as he charged at a Phoenix police officer while threatening to “slice” her throat, wild video shows.
The footage, released Thursday by Phoenix cops, shows suspect Jon David Brouseau, 55, repeatedly threatening to stab a female officer when she encountered him on June 14 in a parking lot of a supermarket.
Officers responded to the scene after someone called 911 to report that a “drunk man armed with a knife” was threatening customers inside, police said in statement Thursday.
“Drop the knife!” the officer tells Brouseau, video shows. “Put it on the ground!”
“No, I’m going to f–k you up,” Brouseau responds before turning his attention to another person in the parking lot whom he also threatened with the knife.
The officer manages to reengage Brouseau, stopping him from approaching the other person as she calls for backup. The suspect then focuses again on the officer, whom repeatedly tells him to drop the weapon, video shows.
“Shut your f–king mouth, b—-h!” Brouseau said as he walked toward the cop and around a police vehicle. “Shoot me – I’ll kill you, you stupid little bitch! I’ll f–king slice your f–king throat!”

Uh, no, sir, you will not.

 

There will be no protest marches decrying “excessive force” by the police officer because, you see, Jon David Brouseau was white.

 

He was only wounded, and is expected to recover, but even if the cop had unloaded her magazine on this deranged dimwit, there still wouldn’t be any white people protesting. If I may appoint myself as a spokesman for the white community, I’d say our general sentiment is, if you’re stupid enough to bring a knife to a gunfight, you deserve whatever happens to you. And did I mention Crazy People Are Dangerous?
