That's why it's so important for police to learn and practice deescalation tactics. Deep down at the core, this is an issue that affects every American. Making sure that police use lethal force only as a last resort should be important to everyone who believes in the Constitution.
I agree wholeheartedly with this 100% I am sincere about this, absolutely.
But here's an observation. We are a nation of laws, correct. Generally state laws govern these incidents ( though I guess they are all subject to Federal review ). I wholeheartedly believe we should accept the judgements of authorities, be they local or Federal, as to the outcomes in these case. Many are unhappy with the results in cases like Eric Garner, Freddie Gray and Mike Brown, and don't want to accept Obama's DOJs findings. I do, and it's not because of an agenda. I thought it was a horrible injustice that Mosby indicted the 6 cops in the Freddie Gray case, but I'll wait to see how it plays out. If any of them are ultimately convicted, then that is the legal judgement, and we should all accept it.
And I'm not saying it will happen or should happen, but would you accept a No-Bill of a possible indictment of the Alton Sterlings shooters?
What is the solution? To me it is changing standards from within, and legally. No one has the right to say " I don't like the laws as written, they are unfair, they shouldn't apply to me, and I will resist them. Well, anyone has the right to try that, but it's not what I believe.
As to BLM, here is a statement today from a BLM leader ( as described by CNN ). It sort of applies to what we've said, in that we all want standards reviewed and changed. I want it done from within and legally, and that doesn't seem acceptable to her,
