A newly released video shows a Las Vegas man charging police officers with a butcher’s knife.
While liberals always cry about American police officers and how they are too trigger happy, this video clearly shows how necessary it is for our police officers to be armed and prepared to deal with dangerous situations like this one.
According to reports, Officer Kyle Prior shot Pedro Ramirez, 28, after responding to a domestic violence call. When officers arrived at the apartment, they knocked for 10 minutes, before a child eventually let them in.
After entering a woman told them there were no other adults in the apartment.
Conservative Tribune reports:
The video shows the body-camera footage of the officers as they spend some time clearing the house, looking for whatever other party caused the domestic violence call.
It took them some time, but they found him hiding in a closet off of the master bedroom. Police ordered the man to drop his knife, but he did not. Two officers fired tasers at the man.
Ramirez lunged at the law enforcement officers with a massive knife, and he didn’t make it far. He was shot multiple times.
The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that Ramirez was taken to a local hospital, where he died of his wounds.
Metropolitan Police Department Assistant Sheriff Tim Kelly told reporters that the woman lied about her husband because she didn’t want him to go to jail.
Good thing this happened in the United States and not in Britain. The fact that those officers were armed saved their lives and allowed them to put a quick end to a violent situation.
