    That is a good point.

    Well, I don't anymore because I left the department almost 2 years ago.
    But, yes I wrote alot of citations and when required I did appear in court as a witness. What happened where I worked was the first court date (the one on the citation) was in "administrative court" where basically you pay, or you let them know you are challenging the citation. If you are challenging the citation then they reschedule your case for the trial court room the officer is assigned to. Once THAT new court date comes up, the Officer is subpoenaed to be there and the case is handled.

    But each court district may handle traffic citations differently within the same state. And obviously different states handle the cases differently than other states, etc.

    I'm sure they exist, I just had no interest in seeing them. I didnt even bother to find out why he's living with his grandmother. I didnt seek out any stories on the cop either.

    Did I state anywhere that it is okay to "terrify innocent people" ?

    It's already standard police procedure. Are you suggesting they 'not' search all suspects? That kind of 'rethinking?'

Firefighters often work for a volunteer department for a couple of years and then apply to the city fire department. Etc.
    That is true... and who knows if Wilson applied at other departments and got turned down because they weren't hiring. Alot of pay freezing, layoffs, and no-hire situations have been occurring in the Law Enforcement community over the last 4 years or so. When the cities were going broke due to the bad economy, so was Law Enforcement.

    I'm suggesting that they may have other options besides shooting to kill

    Please show me a quote ANYWHERE in this forum where it says that Brown deserved to be shot because he:
    A. Robbed a Store
    B. Made gansta rap music
    C. Dressed like a thug (which he really didn't as much as others, he seemed pretty clean cut).

    This has been discussed over and over and over again.

    You put lives at risk when you shoot to wound.... because trying to shoot a small target like a leg increases the chance exponentially that you fail to stop the threat. Which in turn causes death or serious bodily harm to the Officer.

    Lethal force is just that.... Lethal

    Oh so now the 300lb giant is a small target. How convenient.
