WATCH: Miami Beach Cops Shoot Man Holding Knife after he Stabs Cop

Miami Beach police shot and killed a man holding a large knife Saturday night after they say he stabbed an officer in an incident captured on video.

The video recorded by a bystander shows cops surrounding a man sitting on a short wall on Ocean Drive, which is the main drag on South Beach and filled with tourists.

“He has a knife in his hand,” says the bystander holding the camera recording.

The man sitting on the wall then lifts the knife up and it appears as if he was struck by a taser because he fell to the ground and the cops swarmed him to arrest him.

Only they ended up shooting him to death after they say he stabbed a cop.

The actual stabbing is not scene on video because the man appeared to fall into some bushes but police start shooting within moments. About 20 shots were fired.

“They just killed him,” says the bystander with the camera.

According to CBS Local:

A man stabbed an officer, which in turn led police to shoot.

The officer was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital in stable condition.

The suspect was taken the hospital in critical condition. Miami Beach police later confirmed the suspect, who has not been identified, succumbed to his wounds.

“Our officer, thankfully, is in stable condition, expected to be OK,” said Miami Beach Police Department spokesperson Ernesto Rodriguez said. “Again, just after 9 p.m., busy Miami Beach, the heart of south beach, 10th Street, Ocean Drive, one of our officers was stabbed. Unfortunately, you know, this is what our officers put on their badge and put on a gun on their side each day and are prepared to face.”

Police have not released the name of the officer or the suspect.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
