Police Officer vs hatchet during traffic stop

Did he pat them down? I would not want to touch that.

In my city, an officer who uses the slightest force against a pedestrian threatening, yelling, axe wielding psycho, becomes a poster child for how to get reprimanded, when innocent bystanders are extremely thankful, but the threatened violence was by a deranged homeless person.

Note as the officer turns to check out the car stopping as a “something’s not right” activity, he placed his hand on his gun, ready to draw. That prep move probably saved him a quarter to half second of response time when he had to draw. Good for him. This is a lesson for LEOs and self defenders both.
Pray for the officer; the psychological aftermath of having to kill someone is severe.
Pray for the family of hatchet man; no matter how evil or insane he was, they will suffer from his actions and the loss.

Can you Illinois members find a profile on this nut-case? I’m going to presume he was a UPITA or a GPA in his own family or neighborhood, and had had a history as a result with police. I’ve found nothing on websites so far.

When I worked Traffic we learned that there is never “A Routine Traffic Stop”

When a police officer has an unknown person unexpectedly stop at his traffic stop, he should go on high alert.

Yes that’s referred to as “staging your draw” and any time you’re alert enough to a dangerous situation that it allows you to stage your draw it can be a huge advantage in your self defense

The video (car-cam and body-cam) made it to the Jessie Waters show on Fox last night. Jessie gave kudos to the officer.

This same thing happened to my cousin who used to be a cop and his deputy except it was when they responded to a burglary call. They shot and killed him.

It wouldn’t have given Leftists another chip for their hit parade on guns.
