    A couple of weeks ago, I got a call at 0300 about a "Man with a knife trying to kill his family."

    The 911 dispatcher could hear screaming, yelling, etc in the background...........

    I get to the trailer(by myself) and the front door is open about 1/2" and I see a guy face down in front of the door and a woman screaming /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif. I boot the door (which is soooooooooo cool to begin with /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif) and announce who I am.

    The screaming woman is pointing at the man on the ground screaming. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Suddenly, the guy jumps up and looks like Mohamid Ali on smack /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif.............. Right away I can tell the guy is high as a kite on meth (or crazy..............you decide /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif) and moving towards an 11" butcher knife which is laying on the floor about 5 feet from him /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif, so I pepper spray the guy and draw my Glock yelling at him to get on the ground.

    This goes on for 1-2 seconds and the guy is yelling obscenities (use your imagination) and then he makes a leap for the knife.

    Now, I am thinking pretty da*n fast here............I put my Glock back in my holster and make a dive for the guy. I felt like I was in "The Matrix" because everything was slow motion and crystal clear. I grab the guy just as his hand is about 6 inches from the knife, grab him pinning his arms to his side, stand up, and turn 180 dgrees away from the knife and do an improvised "suplex" on the guy. As we both hit the ground (with my 6'3" 210 lbs on top of him), I could hear the air escape from his lungs, but since the guy is high............he does not need to breathe /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif. The guy does a push up with me on his back like nothing /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif so I sweep his arms out from under him and end up cuffing him after a short struggle /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif.

    After talking to the guy, he said that if he would have been able to grab the knife, he was going to kill either me, his wife, his kids or himself.......................or make me kill him. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    My Sgt. nominated me for a "Life Saving" award for not shooting the guy even though I was justified. I thought that was kind of cool to be recognized for my actions.

    Good take down, brother!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I have a question:

    What makes you decide to not shoot a guy like that? I mean, I'm sure you're more than able to handle yourself but what goes through your head in that split-second that makes you realize you can take a guy down instead of shooting him?

    Like Rene said, I would have just shot the guy in the leg and be done with it. Of course, I'm just a ditchdigger so I'm a little less than qualified to make a judgement on this one.

    You definately went beyond the requirements.

    Just don't let yourself get hurt to save a bad guy - the bad guys are winning cuz we don't have enough guys like you.

    Congrats tho!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
