Mentally ill people don't get a free pass for being mentally ill.

I will point out a previous dealing with a mentally ill man, not all that different:

Here

Given the choice between shooting at him, and hitting him with a Taser, I'd take the Taser every time.  Because that was the choice here.

If a mentally unstable man is coming at you with a katana, how would you respond to that? Please do tell.

Really jmac? Really? No, I'm serious....REALLY?

What were they supposed to do,produce an armored knight or a ninja to have equal force? They justifiably could have capped his arse. Crazy or not, he's an imminent danger to everyone around him. "Less leathal" means it is an alternative to deadly force. I think tasers should be used in cases where it's safe to do so as an alternative to a firearm, this is clearly one of those cases. Do you really think officers should have tried to take on a guy with a sword using a stick?

Actually, I kind of like the dressing up as a knight and taking him down idea.

Not justified at all. It was just a katana, it wasn't a gun.  Don't the police get clubs anymore?  That should have been more than enough to defend themselves with, especially if they used their training.

Again: Baton=stick

I don't care what kind of training you have, a katana can theoretically cut a man in half and is a deadly weapon. It's not like it was a pocketknife or bic pen. This has inspired me to bust out the katana and try it on a frozen pumpkin.....

Fine, next time the police have this problem, you can handle it.

My brother and I used to katana/club fight all the time.  It really isn't a big deal.

Taser=attempt to save four lives in this situation.

Firearm=saving three lives in this situation.
 
Baton=putting three lives at risk.
 
Do the math.

Cops are always putting their lives at risk with everything they do.  Their lives were already at risk, therefore:

Taser=putting one life at risk

Firearm=Ending one life
 
Baton=saving one life

Do the math.

For one, I dont see many police officiers walking around with batons much. Mind you, im in a crime ridden city.
 
Secondly, the guy has a katana. Approaching him within range of said katana puts you at a HUGE risk. How do you know if the guy knows how to use it? How do you know if the thing is real or a replica? You dont.
 
Id try to subdue the guy with a tazer every time. I'm sorry, I want to see my family again.
 
Finally, its relatively easy to kill someone by slugging them in the head with a baton, anyway.

Here's the only real question you need to answer before it's justified: Was he resisting arrest?

If he didn't want tased, he should've dropped the sword and stopped after the first zap.
