Even with the "good" shoots, anyone would be hard pressed to say every one of those was absolutely necessary to prevent the cop's death. There used to be an idea that cops were doing a necessary job that carried some level of risk for the sake of public safety, but that has gone out of the window for the idea that even the slightest risk to the cop needs to be met with deadly force.

Over an average year, cops kill about 1,000 people while about 75 of them are killed (excluding traffic accidents). If even the slightest bit of required added restraint resulted in 10% more cop death but saved 10% of killed suspects, that's still a net savings of 92-93 lives. But of course every cop in the country would be howling about the imposition because the reality is that public safety just isn't a real priority.

it actually makes quite a bit of sense if "working class" people live in areas where cops have a long response time if they're even going to show up in a way to where someone would call them in the first place

for most people a gun is better than a cop


Edit: that was literally the county sheriff's recommendation to my mother when she moved out of town: "yeah response time is like 45 minutes, so just buy a gun"

Isn't the klan an example of an "armed working class" itself though? Not that klan leadership wasn't almost completely overlapping with the political leadership of that area, but plenty of the rank and file were/are just blue collar racists.

This entire loving thing is stupid. Dousing the officers is stupid as gently caress. Anyone that does it can get charged for at least disorderly conduct. At the least. If they resist, add on that charge. If they strike the officer while resisting, add another.

However, all the assholes saying that those guys should've went after whoever did it are stupid, too. It's a losing battle. Two guys surrounded by an entire neighborhood. They go to take one into custody, he might start to fight. His friends might join in. You are forced to use force and it escalates. Now you're outnumbered 10-1 and your only option is to go lethal. Yea you could use spray but that will only get you so far. And it's loving water, not rocks.


It's a damned if you do, damned if you don't thing. You'll get criticized from both sides no matter what you do. Better to err on the side of restraint than to get into a huge brawl or possible OIS over some water when there's just the two of you.

Many departments are so short they're making exceptions for 4 year degrees and even if you've smoked weed in the past. A lot of departments are so shorthanded their guys are doing mandatory overtime 1-3 times a week just to cover the bare minimum of bodies.

If all departments got rid of the "never smoked weed" or "haven't smoked weed in 3 years/1 year" requirement, there would be a lot more bodies to fill those spots.
