This was clearly attempted murder to me. The victim did not move an inch or raise his hand, The sworn affidavit by the officer says that he took several steps toward him with the knife in a raised position. How can this be anymore clear? It does not matter that there is no audio. No statement by the victim could justify the officer's action. This was attempted murder and should be prosecuted as such.
