Thanks to all three of you. Yes, this was exactly what I was looking for. I wasn't aware that it was standard to be "one level above" the potential
assailant. That makes some sense.
I guess what I need to say, which I'm sure gets lost in translation many times around here, is that I have the utmost respect for all the good LEOs
out there: thank you for what you all do.
You are needed in our society, and I and most here, are not willing (or capable at this point) to fulfill that need.
Given that, understand that a lot of us are concerned because we can't parse out the good cops from "the bad cops" very well. Because of that, to
many of us, an armed LEO represents ... potential death, regardless of what we are doing.
I know that's not the case every time, and I know that you have to deal with the dregs of our society on a daily basis.
My ideal situation is that we counter the forces in this situation, as in all situations, that are desperately trying to drive wedges between us
