Sammie Wallace shot dead by police officer David Huff in Oklahoma Walmart as man threatened child with knife

The surveillance video from an Oklahome Walmart shows a heroic police officer saving a 2-year-old girl from the clutches of a deranged man with a knife. He did so by shooting the criminal at point-blank range, killing him.

Her mom screams for help, and other shoppers call 911 and surround Wallace, according to police.

“I mean we waited until the last second to use deadly force,” police chief Brandon Clabes told NBC affiliate KFOR-TV.

“No one wants to take a life, especially in the line of duty.”

Police released video and 911 audio from the June 17 incident last week.

Fearing for the child’s well being, a heroic police officer, Capt. David Huff, shot the man at point-blank range. The child was unharmed in the horrifying ordeal.

Wallace had no prior connection to the child or her mother, police said.

    Granted this was a life or death situation and in the end the police had to do what they did, that said one can’t help but feel saddened by the loss of life of an obviously mentally challenged individual, despite the overwhelming support on the web for his blood…

    On some level one wonders what this suggests about society’s stance towards challenged individuals….?
