Seems like more and more I put on the news I see these left wingers showing a video of a police officer spraying OC or shooting a 'poor innocent person' Coming from a Law Enforcement family and having gone through the police academy as a self sponsor myself I could probably tell you that 95% of these officers were following applicable tactics and procedure. I think most of American society views the world through a colorful, fruity, and nice colored lens. They don't realize how fcked up the world is and how fast a washed out tweaker will turn on an officer and try to kill or hurt him. I cringe when people say we should disarm our police officers. It's a shame that our own president doesn't back up our officers when in a time of need. It's a shame that the career path of law enforcement is no longer respected by the public. I've experienced this first hand. Being back in college and applying for jobs most will stay very quiet and have sort of a biased face expression on their face of judgement when they find out. It really is a shame.
All this being said of course you get your few bad apples just like there are in any career or social institution. Out of my academy class of 64 recruits I could probably tell you that only 3 of them that graduated probably shouldn't of been there. Truth be told I don't think anyone should judge and say "I would of done this" because you have no idea what the fck you would of done. When it comes to pucker factor x9000 you're movements and tactics are muscle memory and based off your training. Nothing else. You have no idea how you would of handled the situation because you were not there.
Perfect example of how quickly a situation will escalate from a consensual encounter to a fight for your life
My academy class.
