Police Tactics and American Views

I know that some people are saying, “Enough already!  We’ve got it.  The police are the good guys and they have a dangerous job.”  But the American public do not see how easy it is to get killed on a ‘simple call‘.  They don’t connect that danger to police tactics.  Instead, they believe the police are too often being officious.  “Why do you have your hand on your gun?”, a typical remark from someone at a police call.

Watch the following news report and you will get an idea of how easy it is to get killed on the job.  Because this rookie didn’t use good tactics, he allowed a ‘suspect’ to keep his hands in his pockets — where a gun resided.  Unfortunately, it meant the end of the cop’s life.
