Suspects Armed With Knives

Studies have shown that, on average, if you [a police officer] are twenty-one feet away from a suspect armed with a knife, that person can run up and stab you before you can draw your gun, aim, and fire. Even if the suspect is more than twenty-one feet away, he can still throw that knife at you and embed it in your chest. You don't really think about this scenario until you've actually had a knife thrown at you. Then it becomes all you think about.
