We are not talking about cookie cutter situations. We are talking about this situation. In this situation the cop opened fire against an unarmed person that was not a deadly threat at that moment. Those are the facts.Training does provide a base knowledge, but it is impossible and probably deadly to train everyone to react the same way to any particular instance. Training should be disigned to educate someone on the basic theory of how to react to a situation. But since all situations are not cookie cutter situations you can draw up in a training environment, all training should ever consist of is basics with an emphasis on using you brain to think thru the scenario.
Cop wants you to stop walking. You don't. Cop shoots you and you wouldn't feel pity? I had two cops, one with a dog, attempt to grab me when I asked them if I could walk past them to my car. They were funnelling people out down the street and blocking side streets. I jumped back and they missed me. Had they grabbed me I would have been arrested and there is no way I would have been able to "fight them in court". Don't even try to be silly about that... I walked down the street, out, around the block and called over to them and waved.If you feel this way, I would not have any pitty on you if an officer shoots you dead. Right or wrong, who cares!
You aren't a soldier with a gun, are you? Right or wrong you don't care... holy ****ing **** that is ridiculous. No offense since I don't know you but damn!The officer's only concern in a situation where a citizen starts a confrontation with them is public safety and their own life. If you put them in a situation where they feel thretened by creating a hostile environment, I would not fault them for taking it upon themselves to protect themselves. Right or wrong, I don't care. If you want a confrontation on the street with an officer, just remember that officer has the right to defend themselves from you and that not everyone has the same threshold of what they will put up with until they feel they are in danger.
About no knock warrants and police killing innocent people? Nice to know that you don't care, right or wrong.No education needed.
