  1. Sounds like the NPD did an excellent job of dealing with this situation. The perpetrator charged them with a knife but they were able to subdue her without firing a shot. That same scenario has resulted in countless police shootings across the nation. So for the sake of the perp, the police and our community as a whole — job well done, officers. You’ve saved everyone a bunch of grief.

    • The NPD should highly applauded Because it could have gone in another direction and once again, we will blame in the NPD
      Christy Williams was on oxygen on a daily for years , Who knows the oxygen could have caused her mental state ,that’s why we should have medical professionals all of the scene when episodes Like these happen so the victim will not be killed because of the impatience of the police
      Thanks be to God her life was spared
