Cops shot and killed a Brooklyn man Friday after he lunged at the officers with a knife moments after stabbing his roommate, police said.

The man allegedly stabbed his roommate about 8 p.m. inside of their Carroll Gardens apartment, cops said.

The roommate then ran downstairs to a spa, where workers called 911. When cops arrived, the injured man pointed out his attacker, who was standing on the street outside.

The uniformed police officers shot and killed the man after he lunged at them with the knife as they approached, cops said.

That doesn’t sound like a level playing field. Either the cops give the perp a gun, or they only use equal weapons and toss their guns down and use a knife. Hey, fair is fair.

Does anyone still wonder why journalism is the chosen major for “D” students at community college?

Yet another proof that sentence diagramming is no longer taught in English class.

To stop him from voting for Obama again

This headline goes quite well with today’s other headline about a homeowner holding a robber at gunpoint in his bathrobe. LOL!

"Taken to Long Island College Hospital and treated for tinnitus"?

Now they can claim job related disability and sit on their butts for the next 50 years!

There is no treatment for tinnitus.

Bringing a knife to a gunfight never seems to work.

Only cure I know is tell everyone to holler louder. It works for me.

I had to go back pretty far to top that headline, but I recall this from about fifty years ago. It was the title for a Washington Post article about disputes between Russia and China:

Chinks in the Alliance?

I wonder if they “ran him over” after the incident.

I need to support the NYPD here. A guy, already dead, menacing them with a knife: these officers have no training against zombies. They did what they had to do.

Most of what you can’t hear is likely aggravating anyway.

I was thinking the same thing. “Cops shoot dead knife-wielding man’’. Could have put it as “Cops shoot a knife-wielding man dead’’ or “Man wielding knife is shot dead by police’’. Nope. The reader is led to believe a man, already dead, is shot as he wields a knife. Some ‘’journalist’’ is paid big bucks to mangle the English language in Americas oldest continually printed newspaper, started by one of the Founders, Alexander Hamilton at a $1.50 for the Sunday edition. Amazing.
