I still disagree with the average person being held to "low standards". I don't think any more or less should be expected from people based on their career. I think we should all hold ourselves to high standards so we can excel the most in our communities.

As for the situation though. What is the slightest turn to you? Picking up a gun, pointing it at you and saying "I'm going to kill you all" is a slight
turn? I think most would agree that it's a pretty big game changer. How does it support a peaceful solution? Peace ended when she picked up a firearm. You can't ride on doubt until you absolutely know they have killing intent because for them to prove they have it, they'd have to kill you. Now you can't do anything, and as an officer that would mean not only the obvious things for everyone like your family and friends losing you, but you also do not stand in the way of any future crime. What's the point of being a police officer then? They can't be expected to talk to everyone or anyone that points a gun at them. The job would just be a meat grinder if the police had to wait until someone shot them before they were allowed to act.

You completely dodged any and every question I asked. It's sad that you look at the "average joe" as "low standard", because that is who you are. You are the average person, and if you see yourself as some sleazy low standard, then that's probably why you refuse to think of others and how they feel in a position, while criticizing how they do what you won't even go as far as imagining yourself doing.

But if you change your mind, the question stands. If you were faced with someone with a loaded gun, threatening to kill you, why would you wait until they shot you with it to do anything?

Ive never been in such a situation so I dont entirely know. I might not wait if people I cared about were at stake, i might if I still have my doubts that the other person is really willing to be a murderer for the rest of their life. Maybe im just a suicidal idiot but I wouldnt want to kill someone unless I know without a doubt that that they have killing intent themself. If the assailant doesnt fire first, there will always be a doubt. Sorry if that answer isnt direct enough for you but unless I at least go through something similar, I wont know for sure myself. Thanks for the psych-analysis though, doc.

The low standard I mentioned was the fact that an average joe, a citizen, isnt signed up for that sort of job. They havent pledged to protect lives and willingly thrust themselves into the line of duty, so why should someone who has be expected to behave in the same manner as someone who hasnt would?

Im aware that cops are normal men and women just like us, im not a complete fucking sociopath. They have every right to fear for their lives when it is at risk, which could be a daily occurence for that line of work. That kind of stress is taxing without a doubt. But does every variable that supports a peacful solution have to become null and void when a situation takes the slightest turn? Was the point of no return that first shot or her announcement?

Are you actually being serious? So one cop has to die every encounter?

Military is not the same, there is usually more distance, prevention and safety in most situations. If someone shoots they will probably miss.

A CQB with the police even a shitty shooter will hit a cop. Why does someone has to loose a life to neutralize someone who is pointing a lethal weapon towards the cop?
"Oh cool, Phil is dead now, we can shoot her an neutralize...that is if I can react fast enough before she also blows my face off".


Why don't you apply to the local police force to be the bait to be shot in every encouter? jesus christ.

Why would you wait for one of your fellow officers to potentially be killed before taking action?
If you pull a gun on someone, you should fully expect to have your life ended- regardless of what position they're in. It's common sense.
Guns aren't toys. They're intended to kill.
To treat is as anything else is suicidal.

Well I would say put yourself in that position. You are faced with someone who has a loaded gun. You also have a loaded gun. They're giving you no doubt what they are going to do with it, by saying they are going to kill you with it.

Why would you like to wait until they shoot you with it rather than stop them? Why do you insist the aggressor make the first lethal move like it's a game of chess rather than use what power you have to stop them from trying to end your life? If you do not want to wait for this, then I'd ask why do you believe others in that position should?

If someone doesnt want to put themself in harms way, why be a cop in the first place? Should officers be held to the same low standard as average joes looking out for themselves? I wouldn't put on a badge and pledge to protect and serve if im only going to be willing to protect myself.

This shouldnt have to be some sort of guideline when there are fantastic cops that follow this mindset through sheer sense of honor. The standard for a peacekeeping, authoritative force should be their best members, thats the way I see it at least.

If you point a shotgun at someone else with a gun and say "i'm gonna kill you", you should expect to be shot. Its self defense. At the end of the day, it is not worth a cop's life to attempt to come to a peaceful solution with a violent person. The police and the military shouldn't exactly be treated the same, and you shouldn't expect military precision out of the police. Police officers are there to keep the peace and uphold the law, they don't exactly go into work expecting to draw a gun on someone.

She had a gun, a shotgun, and I don't know what kind of training you think the police get but its not nearly as extensive as the army because the army has you for awhile when you join you could quit the police in a week.

If youre pointing a gun at someone with minimal training whose job is to mitigate total damage and then proceed to yell about killing them all youre going to die. The fact she got the gun out and was able to point it at the cops before being shot is amazing to me.
