What happened to police training? Firearms training? 6 uniformed officers get scared of one man to the point where they ALL unload their clips?
I've fired the .40 and the 9mm that officers carry. In order to dump a clip in 2-4 seconds (as someone earlier posted), you have to be all out. And
with basically NO accuracy. Yet 6 officers managed to fire 80 rounds at a single target. That is not "justifiable". That is outright murder. They had
no intention of disarming the suspect. They had no intention of subduing him. They were firing to kill. Period.
I've never trained as a police officer. But my father was one for 26 years. I have several friends in the SCPD and in the NYPD. I asked them recently
if they were trained to subdue anymore. Most said no. Or that they usually use a taser because they are not allowed to use any form of choke hold.
Why are we constantly hearing these stories? Because the police are not the police anymore. They are militarized. They are not taught to treat the
"citizen" as human beings anymore. We are all "garbage" to them. SCPD is one of the highest paid departments in the country. When I went to take the
test several years ago, there were over 20,000 people taking the test as well. All for about 20 openings. They can be extremely selective. When I
asked my friend in the NYPD, he said they offer the test every week. Their only requirement is a 2-year college degree, and they tend to often take
the "loons" he said. Ever wonder why so many cops seem to be on a power trip?
Police have been militarized. They are not here to "serve and protect". They are here to raise revenue for the county in which they operate. Period.
They make stupid arrests to fill the prisons. They gun down anyone and anything they deem the slightest threat, and often get a slap on the wrist, or
a paid vacation. There never seem to be any repercussions for these actions.
When does it stop?
**edit to add**
One officer was using an AR-15. Or what looks like an AR-15. Perhaps that accounts for the multiple shots?
