Ibragim Todashev, a 1-0 professional MMA fighter, was shot and killed by the FBI last night after being questioned in relation to the Boston Marathon bombings.

What the hell? There seems to be no explanation for the justification of lethal force here. There was a mention of him becoming violent - but there should be proportionate force used. I guess the full details haven't come out yet - but this doesn't seem right.

Something here stinks, but BE probably isn't the right place to go to get the legal details. I truly hope they got the right guy...

Seriously...WTF.

If the guy had had a gun, they would have mentioned it. I don't see the justification here.

There'd better be some sort of investigation into this.

Stupid media is just trying to make the mma community think a certain way. Due to me having to use my phone this is all I can do to help clarify the situation.

CNN

"While the man was being questioned by an FBI agent, two Massachusetts State Police troopers and other law enforcement personnel, "a violent confrontation was initiated by the individual," FBI spokesman Jason Pack said.

Seems shady as hell...

In order to become a mixed martial artist you must register your hands as lethal weapons and lethal force is met with lethal force. Seems like a pretty open and shut case to me.

He was probably high on marijuana too which probably sent him into a frenzy. Brian Caraway, can tell you just how dangerous weed can be (hint:VERY).

He pulled a knife out on one of them, was being questioned about a 2011 triple homicide and before that he connected himself to the Boston Bombers. I'd say "good shot gents!"

Can't post links from my phone, but yeah its there:

While the FBI's investigation into Wednesday's shooting is ongoing, the preliminary details are that after Todashev implicated himself and Tamerlan Tsarnaev he became angered when authorities pressed him for a full confession, the sources said. Todashev brandished a knife, prompting the officials to feel that their lives were in danger. The FBI agent then shot Todashev

Crazy, though, if the story is true and there is no reason to think that it isn't, it is not really very shady for a leo to shoot and kill a guy who just implicated himself in a triple homicide and then pulled out a knife to threaten with.

Of course, some people might not believe the leos. I would say that whatever skepticism I have about the LEO's story, it is dwarfed in comparison to the skepticism I have for the alternate explanation that this was a planned killing.

You are 100% wrong. This "hands must be registered as lethal weapons" bullshit was never true anywhere except Chicago in the 1920s.

The agents can make the argument that they were in fear of their lives because they know he's a trained fighter, but this argument may or may not hold up in court. He's certainly not considered a lethal weapon in legal terms though.

I'm friends on FB with several folks from Wai Kru MMA, where this dude trained. After the news broke, just about everyone said he was bonkers and one of his training partners said:

"This guy was the most irrational and violently impulsive person I've ever met"

These were his friends talking, so makes me think him randomly attacking the FBI isn't out of the realm of possibility.
