A gun is only shoot to kill.
They are giving alot of tools to use first.
Conflict resolution, mace, tasers, batons, hand to hand submission.
If all of these fail and you have to draw your gun it is a last resort and a lethal one only.
A gun is not a tool of intimidation, it is a lethal tool.
It is used as a last resort to save your life and the lives of people around you.
You have to teach someone to know this and understand this.
Use all of your other options and only draw your firearm as a last resort.
An officer has many tools to be used and the last one to be used is a lethal one.
So yeah it is proper to teach someone to kill with a gun because it is made to kill and only kill. It is not a tool to maim with.
You are possibly forgetting the tons of other tools and ways they defuse a situation and just concentrating on a gun as a tool of intimidation to be
waved around to cause fear and shoot people to maim.
An intelligent officer will use all tools available knowing the gun on your side is a last resort and is only meant to kill not blow kisses and
rainbows so people will comply.
Why do you care they are being taught to shoot to kill and not the fact they are being taught to shoot at all?
I am sorry you do not approve of there method of being taught violence, maybe you should try teaching them something usefull like gardening or an art,
where this will not be an issue. Not being sarcastic just honest, every thing I learned about violence was a waste. Looking back wishing I had spent
my time and energy on something better.
Being taught to kill is being taught to kill.
A gun is a tool to kill.
Police are being taught to use every aveunue available before using lethal force.
Your expample of ccw training has nothing to do with this at all in any way. The two are completly seperate things.
You are not taught any of the conflict resolution things, get no anti lethal weapon training, not givin anti leathal weapons, you are taught to safely
shoot a gun.
Do not mistake gun training with Police training.
If I teach you to drive a tractor are you a farmer? No you can drive a tractor.
