The Contra Costa District Attorney's Office made the right call. DA Becton brought in use-of-force experts and the decision was made. However, DA Becton's decision apparently did not sit well with the social justice warriors (SJW). The SJW now want AG Bonta to review the case. Only one problem: AG Bonta and DA Becton are cut from the same cloth. Read into that if you will, but Bonta will not go against DA Becton and use-of-force experts in this case. Bonta may make a show of it, but that's as far as this case will go.

One thing is certain, the officer had every right to defend himself. A knife is just as dangerous as a gun. Look no farther than what recently happened in Las Vegas. The suspect in that stabbing spree left two dead and six others injured. Also, just to prove how dangerous a knife can be, French law states that carrying a pocketknife, whether you are in a city or the countryside is prohibited. It's also illegal to carry most knives or any weapons in public in the UK. London set a new record of 30 teenage stabbing homicides in 2021. Stabbings accounted for almost two-thirds of all murders.

So, for anyone who thinks the officer was in the wrong, DA Becton, use of force experts, and facts related to this case, prove the officer defended himself within the scope of the law, and with both sheriff's department policies and training.
