When the police officer arrived at the Pelosi home, he ordered the criminal to drop the hammer. The criminal ignored the lawful order, and instead at that point started swinging the hammer toward Pelosi. Instead of immediately shooting the criminal, to stop the attack, the officer allowed the criminal to beat Pelosi and instead tackled him many seconds later, allowing the criminal to break Pelosi's skull and inflict numerous other blows. If the officer shot the criminal, instead of wasting time in putting the gun down and then running and tackling him, Paul Pelosi would not have been injured.
This situation shows how dangerous it is to law abiding citizens when the liberals demonize the police and refuse to allow them to do their job and protect innocent people from injuries. It is terrible what happened to Paul Pelosi, and I hope this incident makes those politicians and their liberal allies rethink their constant attacks on the police for using force to prevent injuries.
When you refuse a lawful order to drop a knife, a hammer, or any other possible weapon, the police must be allowed to shoot the criminal to protect the officer and law abiding citizens from injury.
Those who have constantly attacked the Danville police officer for shooting the criminal who ignored the lawful order to put down his knife and instead approached the officer are deadly wrong, and their rhetoric is very dangerous to law abiding citizens.
