It has happened again. The headlines seem to be familiar, but once again the real story of Police courage is lost behind the media hysteria and use of the word ‘terrorism’.
The officers shown in the video below show incredible restraint in trying to arrest the man who has already attacked members of the public. He is seen swiping and slashing with a large knife at Police, who must have been in fear of their own lives.
In the USA, I am fairly sure that guns would have been drawn and fired within a couple of seconds, but the Australian Police in Melbourne went above and beyond the call of duty to try and ensure due process of law in the courts could take place.
Inevitably, the man was shot and in my opinion the Police had exhausted all reasonable actions prior to this.
Hats off to the officers involved as well as the two members of the public who also tried to help.
