You know, it's a really scary thing to see starting to become an issue too. That being, the very concept of self defense shootings vs. uniformed
Police. Another of those things I never thought I'd see the day come to find raised as a serious thing to be addressed.
The problem I see isn't with cops (Criminals with badges..in this example) who go so far over any line of decency that even an average citizen feels
compelled to intervene and with all necessary force. That situation, by nature, would be so clear as to remove the moral/legal questions...we'd hope.
It's that once the precedent is set, as you note, where does 'creative exercise' lead? Every law has people creatively push bounaries and for most? On
a daily basis, somewhere. Imagine where THIS one leads to be tested that way? Anarchy....Chaos...and a break down of civil order, in the most dire of
scenarios over time.
I wish cops would just leave the damn gun in the holster or at least...fingers OFF those triggers ..unless someone is clearly in danger of DYING in
the next moment. Period. That would solve it all before getting into the stickier issues, eh?
