This is just wrong...

I'll just repeat the first sentence of this article and reserve comment: "Four police officers shot and killed a teenager who charged them while holding a 9-inch pair of scissors early Sunday morning, Anne Arundel County police said."

Ok, maybe I won't reserve comment. A pair of scissors? WTF? When confronted by a teenager with scissors, don't police officers have more options at their disposal than, say, "doing nothing" and "shooting the teenager to death"? How about using a taser? Or a billy-club? Cops still carry billy-clubs, don't they?

That's a hell of a way to kick off National Police Week.
