  •  Don't blame them? (12+ / 0-)

    Are you kidding? They never bother to ask around the neighborhood if there are any deliveries during the day? They managed to find out a truck was heading toward them and didn't bother confirming type and color? They shot at the truck indiscriminately! And you say don't blame them? Of course I blame them. The whole point of police training is to drum proper response into the human lizard brain and these guys completely lost their shit when the just got idea of "push" (as in push coming to shove). They should NOT be police officers and should NOT be anywhere near weapons! There are those who will say it's unfair to punish them for one mistake, but I say to hell with that. They have so much power, the next mistake could cost innocent lives and their jobs just aren't worth that risk.

      If I were the father that found four bullet holes in his doorway after this incident I would be very angry.  The police have to be held to a higher standard than the average gun nut.  The right to use lethal force comes with he responsibility to use it carefully.
