That is incredible training from those police officers. They showed incredible restraint and professionalism as they waited for the cop with the taser to take the shot. (SLIDESHOW: This Blonde Bombshell Might Be The Hottest Model On The Internet)

It likely would have been 100% justified if they just took him out with an actual bullet. Instead, they were able to end the situation without much violence. (SLIDESHOW: 60 Times Abigail Ratchford Wore Almost Nothing)

The reality of the situation is if you pull a knife around police, you’re just asking to get lit up like a Christmas tree.

Pulling weapons out around armed officers is a great way to find yourself dead. These police clearly had a lot of great training to make sure the situation didn’t escalate.
