I had a event in NYC on Friday. So in preparation for my Thursday flight to LGA, I brought out my beautiful bespoke midnight blue tuxedo...and left it hanging on my door knob. As an emergency measure, I bought a Suitsupply tux from the Madison Ave store about 3 hours before the event. People had heard that I left my tux at home and were ready for me to turn up in some kind of Jos. A Bank rental. They were astonished when I turned up in this. "You look amazing. I can't...

Why is it okay to shoot a ton of people in the head in CoD but not to hear a gunshot in real life? There shouldn't be any negative consequences to this. How many mandatory fire drills are...
Some shots on the range with earpro sound very different than shots down the hall in a different room resonating around a bank of lockers.

The problem with this is that it creates a hesitance that makes it very difficult for an officer to do their job effectively. LEO brutality, etc. is a problem that exists deep in institutional bones. It's a cultural thing, a recruitment selection thing, a psych maintenance thing, etc. It can't be solved by playing with penalties or laws or code of conduct on their own.
