    Over a justified shooting...

    Violent clashes break out in Philadelphia after police fatally shoot man with knife...

    Police in Philadelphia clashed with protesters late Monday night just hours after a Black man armed with a knife was shot and killed by two officers in the western part of the city, reports said.

    Officials said early Tuesday that the overnight violence resulted in 12 officers being hospitalized with various injuries, including one sergeant who broke her leg after being hit by a pickup truck at the site of one of the clashes.

    Philadelphia Police Sgt. Eric Gripp said the shooting occurred at about 4 p.m. after officers responded to a call about a man with a weapon, Fox 29
    reported. He said the officers were “immediately met with a male who was carrying a knife."

    It's either more "white supremacists" instigation, or it's just a riot that isn't counted as terrorism, and therefore doesn't count as violence.

          It took me 5 minutes to figure out how police could shoot anybody with a knife.

          I thought you needed a gun to shoot somebody.

            I live across the river from all this. I work in New Jersey, but my company's main office is there in Philly.

            And it doesn't help much that Philadelphia's polce commissioner's name is Danielle Outlaw.

              A knife is considered a deadly weapon, and if someone is threatening police officers with it then self-defense is justified.

                You didn't get my point. I understand that a knife is a deadly weapon and that self- defence is justified.

                My point was that the wording of the sentence in the op reads strangely. It appears that the police used a knife to shoot the man.

                For the record, I agree the police are well within their rights to use deadly force as necessary.

                  Ah, okay, you were being funny. I missed that. I thought you were asking, "How could police shoot someone who was wielding a knife?" as in what was the justification.

                    Trying to be funny, anyway.

                    It's Bert from Mary Poppins saying, "I met a man with a wooden leg named Smith".

                    And the response, "What's the name of his other leg".

                      Probably because we've been over this ground so many times there's nothing left to be said.

                          Burn the police precincts to the ground.

                          What they really mean is defund the police.

                          And what they really mean by that is...anyone's guess. It depends on whether the interviewer is on your side. If it is a friendly then of course it is literally burning them to the ground. If not it's just kids blowing off steam.

                          Truly when the rains come it won't be liberals peeing on your head.

                            I would buy that, except people love going over the same ground if it, say, blames white supremacists for the violence. This is just avoidance brought on by cognitive dissonance.

                              Getting pretty used to it.

                              The timing may assist Trump in the elections.
