The shooting death of Parminder Singh Shergill by our veteran police was senseless !

The deceased only had a knife, not a gun. The police were not in mortal danger of losing their lives. It doesn’t matter whether he was charging them or not. I’m sure either officer could have inflicted one shot to the foot or leg. This would have been enough to maim him long enough to get the knife away from him. There was no need to fire several shots and kill him.

My condolences go out to the family and friends of Mr. Shergill.
