Aiming to understand the danger police officers face

By: Laurie Mason
Bucks County Courier Times

The first time I was killed, it wasn’t with a bullet, but with a wrench.

I had pulled my gun out of its holster when the angry man started walking toward me, but kept my finger off the trigger. He wasn’t armed, right? Surely I shouldn’t shoot.

He was yelling something. Coming toward me, faster now. Swinging the wrench. Drop it, I ordered him. Drop it! He ignored me.

Since February, Bucks County police officers have fatally shot three people. None was wielding a gun, but allegedly threatened the officers with a shard of glass, a knife and a brick, respectively.

The glass shard incident involved a Bristol Township man who reportedly lunged at two cops and a probation officer inside his cluttered apartment in February. After an investigation, District Attorney Michelle Henry ruled the officer was justified in using deadly force.
