    Man Threatens Fort Collins (CO) Officer with Knife

    I have to wonder why this guy's still breathing. I'm going to ask around.

    FORT COLLINS (AP) - Fort Collins police have arrested a man who they say pulled a knife on an officer and fought her as she tried to arrest him.

    Police spokeswoman Rita Davis says 19-year-old Arturo Luna allegedly approached the officer with a knife as she responded to a report of a fight between two brothers around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.

    I have to wonder why he is still breathing also. Does this mean she will hesitate if her partner is getting shot at?

    Depends on the circumstances. I've been in a position where I was on the ground fighting with a guy who pulled out a knife. Had I tried to get to my feet, or let go of him to go for my gun, he'd have been able to stab me. Instead I pinned his arm to the ground, then broke it.

    So based on my personal experience, I know for a fact that you can be in a fight with someone who pulls a knife, and you may not be able to shoot him.
    The world would be much cleaner if blind people carried brooms instead of sticks.

    At communion, when the priest says "Body of Christ", I say "Thanks, I've been working out", then I grab the cracker and run back to my seat

    An amateur practices until he gets it right. A professional practices until he cant get it wrong.

    They've got us surrounded? Good. Now we can fire in any direction. Those bastards won't get away this time.
