I hate the phrase "advancing with a knife." That's so vague and open to interpretation.

Was he sprinting with the knife readied in an attack stance? Did he say "I'm gonna stab you if you come near me!"? Was he walking toward police with a knife in his hand, perhaps to surrender when he had plans to hurt himself? Were the cops guns already drawn?

I can't stand when there's almost zero information given in these cases. Body cam footage, evidence, etc. needs to be released immediately when cops kill somebody, not a year later. It's a recipe for media/political disaster.
