But as I've said before it seems clear that there needs to be better training for police officers across this country.
If a suspect is armed, obviously that changes everything.
But if you are dealing with only one unarmed and already agitated mentally ill homeless man, is rolling up 6 cops deep with guns drawn really going to do anything other than escalate the situation even more? Especially on a sidewalk with civilians all around.
Where did you see cops aggressively approaching with guns drawn? cause the video clearly starts with him upright and throwing punches at everything around him. The guns don't come out until one of them shouts, something to the effect of, "he's got MY gun."
But out of curiosity..., what better training do you think would be effective in de-escalating situations that involve hostile criminals who assault unarmed citizens? or try to take guns from law officials holsters? And if you actually have an idea of how to do that? Then how do you get said offenders to comply with officers "new" training? or do you believe that hostile criminals bare no responsibility in their own demise? Once they tazed the guy, he could have submitted. But instead he grabbed the police firearm. So technically you are right. This man didn't have to be shot to death.
Undefeated would just be icing on the cake. But the Championship has and will be the focus of this team. But by any other teams standards, a 30 win season is always successful. but, in Lexington we only count championship Banners, not wins.
