Pennsylvania trooper shoots, kills man armed with knife

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania state trooper shot and killed a man who refused to drop a knife during a confrontation on Halloween, authorities said.

Troopers had responded to a domestic complaint in West Hanover Township where they said Glenn Custer, 59, of Harrisburg, was acting erratically and was armed with a knife.

Custer disobeyed commands to drop the knife and was moving toward a trooper and toward the residence where the domestic complaint had been made, authorities said. That’s when another trooper opened fire.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C. S. LEWIS

Oh Noes! That Harrisburg po-po shot and killed Michael Myers! On Halloween! No more “Halloween” movies! Oh Noes!


Another Custer makes a last stand. Bet he left a greasy grass stain. And that’s no bull.

Kick in my door and you will be confronted with immediate violence.

That hide-a-way hand cannon is no turkey. Kinda reminds me of myself. “…still a demand for the old warhorse (ht 2 Pete Longstreet), especially compact and lightweight variants…”, tho it has been awhile since I was 45. I am that ‘splodey stuff that comes in a small container.

Another Custer makes a last stand. You beat me to it KoB. Looks like knives are in vogue these past few days.
