    You want a cop who makes one f up to pay with his life.
    What if someone just gets caught in Dateline's To Catch A Predator, but did nothing prior and probably wouldn't have done anything currently if not for the purposeful entrapment? Do they get your leniency too? Or is it just cops. Based on the FALSE assumption, BTW, that the time they spent as cops they spent doing the right thing. But you don't know that, and a corrupt cop being corrupt is not really a trustworthy character to assess that on.

    It's just that perchance, some consistency in your calls for punishment may strengthen your arguments.

    He only shot one man.

    Yes you will. You "what if" the cop, essentially, with the assumption that they've done nothing else wrong. What if the cop didn't do anything else, do you want to punish him for one mess up. What if the child molester didn't molest anyone else, do you want to punish him for one mess up?

    You already did it, you're just trying to define your terms to account for the inconsistency in your call for government force. A cop shooting someone, let's treat them special. A citizen shooting someone, f'd in the a.

    He fired 4 times. A double-tap which is this initial aggravated battery, then the guy put his hands up and the cop shot again, a pause, and then again. That's one count attempted murder for the 3rd shot and one count attempted murder for the 4th shot.

    Then the cop cuffed the guy, so that's one count false imprisonment.

    And don't forget all the firearm-enhancements to sentencing for using a firearm in the commission of those felonies.

    I did not. I rarely "what if" because you can what if things forever.

    If a cop did that to me and had no prison, I would come find him.

    You just incorporated it into another structure. The reason you said they should be treated special is because they "do good", but that's the what if. You just folded it into an incorrect assumption.

    Justice is blind, or rather it is meant to be. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

    I would have returned fire right then and there. But that is just me.
