:lookinup: Guess that is a good way to deal with a suicidal woman.. she shoulda just bought her own gun.

FORT WORTH — A woman was shot and killed by police Monday afternoon after she came at an officer with scissors, officials said Tuesday.

Stacey Burris, 46, was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital where she was pronounced dead from multiple gunshot wounds at 8:32 p.m. Monday evening.

Sgt. Pedro Criado, a police spokesman, said officers were dispatched to a suicidal person call in the 1300 block of Country Manor shortly before 8 p.m.

There, a family member told the officer that Burris was making threats to harm herself and family members, Criado said.

An officer had entered the house and was walking along a short, narrow hallway toward the woman's room when he encountered her standing in the doorway, threatening to stab herself in the throat with a large pair of scissors.

"He kept ordering her to drop them, obviously to no avail," Criado said.

Criado said a second officer had arrived in the hallway when Burris "suddenly lowered the large pair of scissors toward the first officer and came toward the officer."

Criado said the officer fired his duty weapon multiple times at the same time that the assist officer deployed his Taser at the woman.

The shooting is under investigation by the department's major crimes unit, Criado said.

"Multiple" gunshot wounds? Did she brandish multiple scissors?

Reminds me of the joke about the Aggie robber. He walks up to a person, puts a gun to his head and says "Give me all your money or I'll blow my brains out!":crazy:

Sure sounds like Suicide by Cop. Tough to reason with the unreasonable, very unfortunate but these scenarios escalate and twist in an instant. Horrible situation from every angle. The article mentions them as large scissors, which will act just like a knife under force.

It's not like in movies where one shot would have knocked the scissors out of her hand. ;) Shoot until the threat is neutralized. Her momentum was toward an officer, at least two shots are coming.

If his only chosen option regarding neutralizing a female with a pair of scissors is unloading a revolver into her, I suspect a grandiose lawsuit.

Doesn't say much for his training.

It becomes the fault of the person with the scissors when the person being assaulted is not as well armed.

I'm sure the officer had several options other than drawing his weapon in order to neutralize his attacker.

By the way... it's "whittling."

Were you not told as a child -You should not run with scissors ? Well... there's your proof, your mother was right.

You, my friend... are a victim. You don't know it yet... but you are.

Yeah, let me know what you feel like the next time someone comes at you with a long sharp object...

Here's my thinking, on the basis that I'm thinking like a cop:

This woman is crazy and she's threatening to hurt or kill OTHER PEOPLE!

I have a gun, a baton, a taser, and a bullet-proof vest.

Wait, this vest will do absolutely nothing against a knife...

****, this bitch is coming at me! BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG! (I'm carrying a 1911):thumbsup:

I'd feel like I could handle it without a gun. It's called "training."

In my case, it's martial arts.

No, I'm not a police officer, so I would expect one to be more trained than myself.

So I'm to assume that your mother told you that if you ran with scissors, you would be shot?

Running with scissors would only injure myself. She had a weapon, sure, but the cop had no spine.

I sincerely hope that in my community, the police officers can neutralize a 40-something woman with scissors without having to put her down like a charging Pit Bull. (Which also is spineless.)

I'm no victim. You are. Of ignorance.

Must suck for you to live in such fear.
