Guy holds elderly mother hostage by knife, gets dropped by Cop

Frank
A 58-year-old man was holding his elderly mother hostage with a knife. A police officer ordered him to drop the knife. He did not drop the knife. The cop dropped him. It was over that fast. The elderly mother can be heard pleading for the cop to not kill him, but it was too late for that. He messed around and found out. Not sure why the guy was doing this, but if he's willing to hold his own mom hostage with a knife and not comply with the police, then he's literally asking to get shot. Also, he's white, so there won't be any protests or free sneakers and flat screen TVs this time around. Sorry folks.

It really sucks to be that mom. Not only did her own son hold her life at stake, she then watched her son die because of it. No matter what, she was getting hurt one way or another that day. Man, that must really suck no matter how it pans out.

Police Activity reported the details of the case:
Los Angeles, California — On July 26, 2021, LAPD Pacific Patrol Division officers responded to a radio call of a “hot prowl burglary” at an apartment in the 3700 block of Barry Avenue. Upon their arrival, officers heard yelling and saw the suspect, later identified as 58-year-old Herman Gonzalez, through the broken front window of the apartment. Gonzalez was in the front living room, armed with a large kitchen knife. Gonzalez was holding the knife against an elderly woman, shielding himself behind her, as they walked toward the front door of the apartment. The officers gave Gonzalez multiple commands to drop the knife; however, he refused to comply; resulting in an Officer-Involved Shooting. Gonzalez was struck by the gunfire and fell to the floor. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the scene and pronounced Gonzalez deceased. The knife Gonzalez was armed with was recovered at scene.
