This is so much like what so many of us go through with-our g'sfg that I couldn't help but post it. I completely understand the family's position. It did not have to escalate to this point. In this case, backing off would have worked. He only had a knife (in the beginning), and other people approached him, not the other way around. Maybe his life will be a lesson for police and SW in the future. One can only hope.
