Drawing no conclusions as to how well or badly this situation was handled: In 1997, I attended the Portland Police Bureau's Citizens Police Academy, which was for any interested citizen. As police officers demonstrated how they handle threats, including people with guns and knives, we were told that often officers fear knives more than guns because a bad cut from a knife that slices a key blood vessel can cause an officer to bleed out before help arrives. I and others in the class were at least a little surprised at that information.
