    your diary says. More police means more opportunity to handle situations in an alternative manner.

    You are passing on an alternative manner to handle the problem of citizen murder by police.  An alternative, which would employ people and reduce the excuse of needing a gun for protection because response time is not good.

    You are dug in to your way of thinking. There is nothing you will consider other than kicking police ass.

    Only gun owners can control their guns and they say oopsie way too much. I lost it, I forgot it, it just went off. Support Gun Kill Speed Limits and Gun Ownership Speed Limits.

        LE to subdue a mentally ill citizen. First all, it takes way more people to subdue a mentally ill citizen than to make a traffic stop.

        You might want to brush up your understanding how many people it takes to restrain someone who resists without hurting the person.

        You are just upset and want to hurt back.

          mentally ill citizens? I do. In fact, I know more than a handful of people who work every day with mentally ill citizens. They don't carry guns, and they don't roam in packs. There are very effective ways to either talk someone down or immobilize them with a mere handhold while awaiting transport to the regional psychiatric hospital. Where doctors, nurses and orderlies don't carry guns or roam in gangs either, come to think of it.
