You mean if you shot a 15 year old kid who was sitting in the passenger seat of a car and then you claimed that the car was coming towards you instead of away from you, that you might be in trouble with the law?
“You gotta love cops. The guy kills someone and his punishment is: He’s fired. You and I would be looking at hard time if we did something like this.”
I am a supporter of “good law enforcement.” As a society we need that. But all too frequently, we have some guy with a badge and a gun wearing size 44 coveralls and a size 4 hat making ill-informed life and death decisions. Somehow, we have to engage in severely punishing LEOs who take civilians lives where it isn’t warranted. The idea that this sort of punishment will be detrimental to the overall performance of our cops is bullshit! And the one thing that needs to be addressed more fully is the “no nock warrant.” That is an invitation to a gunfight when the occupants are simply people trying to protect themselves.
badges and costumes grant the wearer extra special rights that us regular Americans do not have
