Can't police officers subdue without shooting and killing?

Knife-wielding men killed by police.

The latest example of police shooting and killing citizens in the Spokane area was Wednesday, Jan. 23.

What in the world is wrong with this picture — several “trained” police in cars, armed to the teeth, approach an individual with a knife and they can’t subdue the person without killing him? 

It happened in Cheney last summer, as well.

Couldn’t three officers distract the man and one other knock him over the head? At least he could survive. Other possible options are lassos, dart tranquilizers, dog catcher loops, bean bags and bear mace.
