    That is because the Metropolitan PD was there to take the blows as these rioters said they were going to KILL the Senator.

      I am pretty sure Senator Paul's overriding feeling (besides concern for his wife) was amusement. But his profession is politics, so he is going to milk what he can.

Nor do you know he was "reaching for a weapon"... Maybe having been tasered twice he just wanted to sit down - perhaps his kids were upset at seeing him tasered and he was trying to get closer to him. He had no weapon in his hand when he was shot and was faced the other way. It may have been 'legal' by the laws of that state but trying to justify it as the use of 'reasonable force' and making up hypothetical conjectures about him intending to 'kidnap'/'torture' his own children is just guff.
        You are an idiot! Resisting arrest is all the justification cops need to shoot you! Period! Dumbass! Again, dumbass! The guy has ALREADY shown that he can fight off extreme pain (tasered TWICE), LETHAL FORCE IS NOW JUSTIFIED! Keyword LETHAL. TO PROTECT EVERYONE, COPS DON'T STOP SHOOTING UNTIL HE STOPS MOVING.

        Lastly NO ONE is suspended, let alone FIRED! PERFECTLY LEGAL USE OF FORCE!

        Your opinions means SQUAT ALL and like all your legal horse puckey IS NOTHING MORE THAN YOUR ILLUSIONS THAT YOU THINK YOU KNOW MORE THAN ANYONE WHEN IT'S NOTHING MORE THAN TOILET PAPER.

          Ahh....no. They weren't going to kill him. Where do you get that?

          It was a publicity stunt, pure and simple. He did it to play to the simpletons in his base.

          • Well Albany, feel free to drive down Pennsylvania Ave at your leisure to threaten the life of the Senator of your choice since you believe it is no big deal.

              Sir, you can make your point without resorting to insults. Please stop.
              My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.

                  Very fact that no one is suspended nor fired should tell you that this is now just a formality.

                      It is a 'reasonable use of force' to shoot an unarmed person in the back seven times in the back. The job is to arrest him - not to obliterate him.

                      I have acknowledged that if there is no criteria of 'reasonable force' then fine it is 'legal'. In Europe a Police Officer who did such a thing would be suspended straight off and an inquiry held.

                      I do not think I 'know more than' anyone let alone everyone. But I am allowed to have an opinion.

                        The job was to STOP HIM. Again, after demonstrating that he can fight off extreme hurt, YOU DON'T STOP SHOOTING UNTIL HE STOPS MOVING.

                        Simple maths tell me that there are more than 20 cases when European police firearms are used that they emptied their mags.

                        And IT IS STANDARD PROCEDURE in ALL WESTERN COUNTRIES to investigate ALL Police firearms discharges and the Policemen themselves put on Administrative Leave (as opposed to a suspension without pay) so that the Policemen themselves do not corrupt the investigation either willfully or ignorantly. They are still bound to and portected by the very police departments they work for. Suspension without pay means that they are not going to pay for dirty cops.

                        There is a BIG difference between an EDUCATED opinion and WILD ASSED assumptions. Guess which one yours fall under.

                        Here's one that has been drilled into me since the first time I held a firearm. Never point your firearm in a direction unless you're intending to shoot in that direction. Always be aware of your shot. Be aware if you shoot, you're shooting to kill.

                          hate to break it to you, but within the US criminal justice system, the amount of cover-up of police crimes by police or DAs is staggering.

                          here's a recent example:

                            Also hate to break it to you. Everything about Blake is on record and no one is covering up anything. The resisting arrest is recorded. The tasering is recorded. The knife is found. There might be police cover ups elsewhere but this one ain't it.

                            • that is also true in the example above -- there was video, yet the police commander defended the officer's actions, said it was a "matter of life and death", and blamed the dog's owner.

                              the officer hasn't been fired, either.

                              no investigation yet, and the only reason why there may be one is because the video went viral.

                                Know PA AVE very well. I grew up in that city and walked PA AVE as recently as 2 months ago...no problems. Try it sometime.

                                As has been said...Pussy Paul used this as a political act. Again, if he felt that fearful of his life he should have been in a vehicle and not walking...never mind the fact he shouldn't have even been at that Hatch Act violating assembly at the White House.
