From what I have seen in the videos it appears the officer was in fear of this lunatic stabbing people if he got back in the store. He says he didn’t use the taser because of the wheelchair being in the way. Doesn’t look good, he was terminated already. I’ll let a court decide that. That is the system at work. But the nut threatening people with a knife is a hard core violent felon with a long rap sheet including attempted murder and human trafficking. Sorry if I don’t shed a tear.
