The whole point is that police are trigger happy and there are far too many innocent fathers/mothers/children getting killed in the crossfire bc officers would rather shoot than do any risk assessment.
It is this reason that infants end up being blown up with tear gas while sleeping in their cribs.
The day will come when all these smug trolls bombarding this thread find out how much the police rape the citizens lives.

Oh really, you think cops are gonna come in and save neighborhoods? What happens when a crack neighbor hood gets too bad? Cops stay away, don't answer 9-11 calls, too dangerous.
Not that I blame them. What happens is residents end up cleaning up those neighborhoods.
But to generalize all cops as "trigger happy" is just way too lazy a comment. You know very well that there are some really good officers out there that will go many extra miles to avoid ever having to fire their service weapon their whole career. You can't minimalize those types of officers just because the news never discusses them.
I don"t believe all LEO's are power hungry evil scum
I believe police are necessary.
