OVER-KILL ONCE AGAIN BY POLICE:
This kid had issues, and they knew it, yet they still decided to sentence him to death. Everyone who defends these actions always says “You arn’t in these situations, if it were YOU, you would shoot to protect yourself too.”
ACTUALLY NO, if you need to SHOOT at someone who is running at you with a knife, then you need better tactic/stress training. Tazers, Submissive Combat, Batons, Mace (the same kind they use on peaceful protesters)???? these things arn’t applicable because the cop panics?
You can’t use self defense as a justification for murder when an officer of the law is a representation of the government. PERIOD. The police should only be able to use their gun (fire it) when they are shot at FIRST… I would much rather them spend our tax dollars on bullet proofing themselves versus killing citizens in fear, then calling it “official police duty” or saying that the victim “egged” it on themselves…
Death is the ULTIMATE punishment, how is it fair that every single officer in America has the right to carry out that sentence themselves? You didnt sign up to be a teacher, you’re a cop, accept the danger you signed up for and TRAIN better if your that scared!
