Newly-released body cam video shows Officer Josh MacMillan defuse a tense situation with a mentally ill man who threatened to kill himself in Fontana, California on November 2019.
MacMillan repeatedly told the suicidal man to take his hands out of his pockets (without holding onto the gun that MacMillan saw through his hoodie).
The suicidal man pleaded with MacMillan to shoot him, but MacMillan refused.
MacMillian talked the man down, gave him more than adequate time to remove his hands from his pockets, and (with his his fellow officers) placed the man in handcuffs without even escalating the use of force, as so many police officers do.
