Man attacks police with frying pan and hot grease

From richmond.com:

Two officers encountered Andre Mangram, who was welding a frying pan, and were injured trying to arrest him. One officer was hospitalized, while another was treated and released.

An RPD source adds that the officers were injured by being hit with the pan and hot grease, and makes the obvious but important point that this man did not get shot.

As for pointing out that the man was not shot, I think he was lucky. A hot grease attack is justification for self defense with the use of deadly force!

@Jean McDaniel – there has been much discussion in national media recently of the disparate treatment of white vs. black criminals. Google “bath salts cannibals racial disparity,” provided you aren’t eating or planning on eating anytime soon… Anyway, I can’t help but think that in a lot of the more extreme incidents (I.e. The one I just suggested you google) what’s concerning is not use of force, but that that the police don’t just shoot the white perpetrators as well.
