Wright or wrong, justified or not, trained police shouldn’t kill people. Soldiers do that. Police “serve” and “protect”. Lately, it seems that younger police are more interested in “catching the bad guys”.
Only a few bad apples ruin the barrel. Most police are good… for now. But if we continue to praise the good police and ignore the bad apples, we could be looking at nation-wide lawlessness as good cops say, “Forget this incompetent government, I’m protecting my family.”
If an officer is justified in killing someone, he should be honored to end his own career. He serves, after all.
