We are critical when violent situations involving police end badly so its appropriate to applaud an opposite outcome, when the public is protected and the threat is taken down without serious injury.
Today on Commercial Drive, Vancouver City Police faced an unstable person threatening pedestrians with a large knife. The woman did not respond to voice commands or taser use but was eventually disarmed with less-lethal baton rounds, then taken to hospital.
To the brave officers of the VPD: job well done.
