I stopped reading your essay after the "police are paid to" bit.
No, police are not paid to "engage suspects non-lethally." Arguing from a position of ignorance is still ignorant.
Your ignorance of the catalyst of this issue is epic.......the Police are not paid to lethally engage the MASSIVE MAJORITY of the suspects they
encounter......there must be a complete re-do of the PARAMETERS under which weapons can be unhlostered and fired...full stop.
The Trumpster is about to tune in this oppositionally defiant attitude you exude with your pre-emptive references to ignorance. ....lol....oh sure you
are snappy smart....but as shallow as Hal.....lol...and look for a lot of Judges and lawyers and politicians and financieers to be sandbagged as soon
as Trump is in power because he and Putin both took over deeply flawed and crooked Countries rife with extenal influences forcing puppet-like National
Yes.....Police are paid to engage people with the LOWEST LEVELS OF FORCE POSSIBLE SO AS TO AVOID A TERMINAL OR LETHAL ENDING TO ANY ENCOUNTER.
You can play the strawman all you like...tis ok with me.
Listen ,any fool who is willing to endorse an SOP procedure which dictates that a weapon is NEVER DRAWN unless it is going to be used AND WHEN A
WEAPON IS USED IT IS TO BE USED ONLY UNDER CIRCUMSTANCES JUSTIFYING A LETHAL DEADLY OUTCOME...WHICH TRNSLATES SALPPY INTO AN ...IMMEDIATE ...not an
"IMMINENT THREAT" to the Police or to the Public....just holding a knife and refusing to drop it then taking one or two steps forward DOES NOT JUSTIFY
THE USE OF LETHAL FORCE.......just holding a gun is not justification for using lethal force....it simply is not.....lol...anytime a Cop is facing
bigger person they will use the murder by Cop option...BECAUSE SLAPPY....as soon as they "feel they are under imminent threat" they may begin to
escalate their application of force and BECAUSE a bigger suspect can tackle a Cop who isnt retreating .
They are PAID to retreat under most circumstances where we see them murdering people.....retreat and negotiate.....in the name of public safety...THE
POLICE AND THEIR UNION AND LAWYERS TRY TO TELL US that shooting to kill to end the threat ASAP is in the publics best interests
When I see 2 165lb Cops taking on a 340lb suspect alone I know they wish to kill him by playing the "esclation of justifiable force" game.....they
KNOW they cannot handle him and he will present an imminent threat of harm to them because he cn use his immense size to take thei weapons if he
wrestles with them......and....when I see 4-5-6 Cops working together to cuff and take into custody suspect I EXPECT WITH A 100% CERTAINTY THAT THE
SUSPECT WILL NOT BE HARMED PEMANENTLY.....you see SLAPPY there are MILLIONS of violent patients handled in Hospitals and Hospices and Nuthouses every
year and we dont see their Caretakers SHOOTING THEM FOR DISOBEYING A VERBAL COMMAND OR FOR BEING TRUCULENT OR OPPOSITIONAL OR FEISTY OR MINIMALLY
PHYSICAL IN THEIR RESISTANCE.Your ignorance is no excuse for your apathy.
When suspect tries to escape in an automobile in todays world they are signing their own death warrant even if they entered the vehicle
unarmed....because the POLICE CHOOSE WILLINGLY to interpret ANY MOTION AT ALL TOWARDS AN OFFICER OR THE PUBLIC to
