The AP is reporting that San Francisco police say a knife-wielding man in a wheelchair stabbed an officer before the attacker was shot.

The suspect and wounded officer are in the hospital with non life-threatening wounds,which is surprising because most cop would riddle your body with bullets if you even threatened to stab them!

  1. Hate to side with the police on this one. I know several homies in wheelchairs and they are fearless they feel they got nothing to lose and if you have ever slap boxed with a nigga in a wheel chair they are hella strong and can spring up out of the chair on you, thats prolly how that first cop got stabbed, scared they bitch asses for real !

  2. He got hand-i “-Capped” by that cop!
