One little finger accidentally pressing the trigger will cause problems. When you got so much cops around get two cops to disarm without gun equipped at least.

What the heck happened to the times when Cops carry "Batons" around instead of just a gun. I bet most of the police aren't even trained to disarm a person. All I see in the police shooting news is fat cops sticking out the gun and telling everyone to drop down. One little finger accidentally pressing the trigger will cause problems. When you got so much cops around get two cops to disarm without gun equipped at least.
Most of the cops seems to just want to use the gun and expecting a gun fight.

I don't think I would take a Baton to a gunfight.... Just not bright. I wasn't to clear if you were describing cops in the USA or not, perhaps you need to travel to some other countries that have some low crime rates and see what there cops are carrying... In the US if your not shot you will be taken to Jail, maybe the hospital if your injured. In Serbia you are robbed, then beaten, then shot and left in a ditch.
The US cops surely not perfect but a whole lot better to some of their peers in other countries like China, Mexico,Russia, South Africa,India, Pakistan,Italy, and Germany. Yes Germany. If you need more proof, Get a passport and fly to Mexico. Find a policemen and ask him why he being a jerk, then see what happens to you. Go ahead. jaywalk across a street in Kiev then tell the cop who stops you something brilliant like he's violating your rights. You will understand the meaning of true pain as he drags your butt off the street into an alley and pounds you into dust.
I don't understand why any person would deliberately pick a fight with a armed person in uniform that is trained not to take any crap from you. Has the power to kick your but and haul you off to a cell. When I talk to a Law Enforcement officer, (Getting Directions) I try not to provoke him into gunning me down in the street. I respect them and stay away from them because the can be tired of taking crap from people all the time...
PS: I would chill on the FAT COP thing too. Two Three Hundred pound Donut sucking monsters can crush your skull without using any weapons.
