This particular incident is only a few days old and truth be told, it’s quite sad. The woman in the video below charged at police officers armed with a knife and the officers involved had no choice but to shoot her, thankfully, it was all captured by the officers bodycam, so there is no dispute as to what happened.
Since most major cities across the country have instituted mandatory vaccination for their police force, we will see a reduction in police personnel, that means less police (and other emergency personnel as well), will be able to answer the public’s calls for help. That will cause an increase of lives lost, simply because there just won’t be anybody there to help when the public calls.
There are quite a few people out there that just don’t understand how stressful a police officer’s job is and they show their ignorance when there is an officer involved shooting, especially when the suspect is armed with a knife.
Those same people say that instead of shooting ‘center-mass’ (as every police department trains their officer’s to do), that the officer should have tried to shoot the suspect in the arm, or the leg. That is just not possible, police aren’t trained to to ‘wound’ the suspect, their job is to put the suspect down, before he/she can cause deadly harm to them, or others.
Sadly, that’s exactly what happened in the video below. Luckily for the suspect, she was not shot fatally and survived the situation and more importantly, no others were harmed because of her actions.
Here is a written account of what occured in the video below:
Simi Valley, California — On October 5, 2021, at approximately 7:45 p.m., Simi Valley Police Officers responded to a report of a Dispute between two female subjects at the 7-Eleven Store located at 5820 E.

The suspect was identified as 31-year-old Sarah Repp of Simi Valley. When the officers arrived on scene, they contacted Repp in the 1800 block of Yosemite Avenue, which is down the street from the store.
