The man was also autistic, and they left his body on the sidewalk for 2+ hours

If the guy is dead, aren't you supposed to NOT mess with a body until investigators clear the scene?

Not saying the cop wasn’t justified, but not surprised to see those two things left out of the riveting discussion you guys are having on here. 

The cop should have done some questioning to the man before shooting? What about running? Maybe the man was just trying to give the cop a hug and he ran?! 

Nowhere in any news did either of those things get mentioned when I had about 15-20 minutes of morning reading. I don't care what happened or how, if someone is running at me with a knife...I'm shooting. The cop was called on a domestic violence call. The last thing I checked was "violence" doesn't typically mean "nice things." Sorry I cannot understand your narrative here.

EDIT: was able to do some additional digging. He was not autistic, from the reports I read. He was bipolar and schizophrenic. His sister called to try to get him "involuntarily committed." He had an episode and was off his medication.

The deceased also was involved in an altercation in March 2019 where he stabbed 4 people, including a 16-year-old boy in the face. In May 2015 he was charged with stalking, harassment, and trespassing.

So, if any of this was known by the responding officer, then the officer knew there was a chance more violence could occur...maybe. 

It's a sad story. I cannot begin to understand mental illness. I wish there was more that could be done to prevent it, and prevent incidents like this.

I have an autistic son. If my autistic son charged at a police officer with a deadly weapon and died...I would be heart broken, but inevitably I would blame myself for letting him be in that situation and/or do such a thing.


Anyone blaming the cop is a moron.

The the people in that house should have done a better job handling the situation.  BTW, If they scooped up the body in 20 minutes someone would be yelling about it being too quick

Lol that Lebron stuff is the dumbest shit ever. Why is it his job or responsibility to help catch the gunman? Seems like law enforcement should be doing that! 

*Edited since killer isn't really the right word.

Well, this is the sheriff who came under a bit of fire due to trying to cover up that a bunch of his deputies were taking unauthorized pics of the deceased after Kobe's fatal crash, so doing dumb shit in regards to famous basketball players isn't exactly a new thing for this dude.

False, especially without any context.  The department doesn't defend or pay settlements, insurance companies do it, and they always do it to minimize their expense.

It is public record. Of course the taxpayers or insurance pay depending on the city  but the numbers are  100 percent accurate..but please provide a link and educate me if I’m wrong

I've never heard of a gang inside a dept, but damn! 


Anyway, 1 million dollar bails for some of the violent rioters in Lancaster. That stopped things rather quickly.
