Why do they shoot these fuckers and then take them to hospital? What a waste of tax payers money.

Swing at a police officer with a metal pole - expect to be killed or severely injured. This is *not* a case of "let's get the taser out and hope not to die" - it's a case of "delete this scum". Pity it survived - now I expect taxpayers need to pay for it to be repaired in hospital, pay for a trial, pay for an appeal, pay to imprison it - and then upon release, wait for it to go feral again and start all over again. Pity he didn't keep firing until empty.

You come after a Texan with a fucking METAL pipe we shoot you. When you come after a Texas Police Officer with one you just signed your own fucking death certificate.

That last shot to the back is questionable. Had the officer deployed any non- lethal yet? Did the cop have time for back up? Need more info on this.

That and the fact that the cop approached the individual. Looks like attempted homicide on the officer's part to me. You should always leave a safety zone between you and actor. He clearly entered it.

That cop probably hit him 1-2 times and he was still up. Pretty good indication that this guy was jacked up on dope.

I don't think bringing non lethal into a lethal metal pole fight is a good idea...

The 9 x 19 mm JHP expands to fast in fat, doesn't get deep penetration.

I believe that this would have been an instance where a taser could have been used.

Or he could have complied. Cop already chose his sidearm. Suspect was less than 10 feet away with what looked like a 3 foot long 2x4. So in order to go less lethal him he would have had to holster his weapon choose taser/pepper spray. During that time he is defenseless to an attack from this jerk off who might be methedup/off his meds or just retard crazy........

Tasers work LESS than half the time. If someone is armed and swinging at your head, you need to work out what chances you want to have in going home that night to your family. And you have about a tenth of a second to make that choice. Even if tasers worked 99% of the time, it still means on the 100th time in THIS kind of situation, you are probably going to leave your family without a breadwinner - so some feral scum can swing at someone else.

Nope, the swing of the pipe would deflect the Taser wires. Getting too close for pepper would have made the cop too close. A Bullet or three was the only choice.
