Scary situation, my thoughts are with the Sheriff's Deputy.

It's so sad when people are suicidal, but even more so when they try to force someone else to complete the act for them - a police officer or a train engineer or a motorist. Trying to make someone else end your life for you is incredibly sad - and cruel. I feel for both the victim and the officer.

The story is Sheriffs shot and killed two people in Santa Clara county in the last month. Both killed had no guns and one was a 61 year old lady. We will never get there side of this one sided story. So at LEAST two armed Sheriffs had to kill a man with (UNSAID OBJECT) why? I live within seeing distance of where this man was killed. You believe what you will but the Sheriffs are the only armed Gang around here...........
