Only in October

A New York City man called the cops on himself, refused to to drop the knife he was carrying, and was shot and killed by responding officers.  Of particular interest:

“After the man, Emmanuel Paulino, 24, tore the Taser’s electric probes from his body, two officers fired nine shots at him, the police said. Mr. Paulino was pronounced dead at NewYork-Presbyterian/Allen hospital.”

Obviously this is tragic and sad, but when this guy gets up off the slab at the morgue and puts on a William Shatner mask, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
