    Default Cops shooting innocent members of the public.

    Seems its a problem thats growing.

    Here we have a black officer shooting a white housewife.

    Not sure what the underlying problem is with street cops and where they point their weapons.

    But I think many of these fucking idiots need retraining as to which part of the target to point the weapon at depending on circumstances.

    Also maybe a course in anxiety management and in some cases anger management.

    So it isnt all white cops killing black street youths...

    Its getting worse something needs to be done.

    Weird.... very weird.

    The story is that the cop was "startled" by the family's German shepherd.... whatever "startled" means in this particular case. The cop goes to shoot the dog, slips on the snow, and shoots the woman in the chest. So on the surface, it was an accidental death. Yet... one has to shake his head at the complete and total incompetency of this cop and how the hell can he be licensed to carry a loaded weapon. Went to kill the dog... slipped... and killed a mother and wife instead. Ooooops!! My bad.

    This is a police officer, supposedly with the proper training in the use of firearms and lethal force. Imagine what an average citizen would do in a case like this. Probably get off three or four shots on his way to the ground and take out a small village.

    Still, it is unclear what the dog was doing. There's a big difference between just "following" the officer, and pouncing on him with the intent of ripping out his throat, in which case the shooting of the dog would've been justified.

    Americans are armed to the teeth with legal and illegal firearms. Cops are living in fear and paranoia. A cops worst nightmare is to go out on the beat one day and respond to a simple call say of domestic violence and to answer the door and see a tech nine or a glock in his face and get blown away and never see his wife and children again that day. This is contributing to the trigger happy bullshit that the cops are now manifesting. Cops need to be retrained. on the other side of the coin. They are arrogant trigger-happy power-hungry bullies who love to intimidate common people

    Shoot first, think later. These people are pumped up on goodness knows what and are shooting down the public with reckless abandon. It's like Rome in the dying days.

    It's hard to make a judgement on it without seeing what happened. The cop was treated for a dog bite so I guess the shepherd had attacked him.

    Cops need the right to defend themselves because their lives are constantly in danger. Two cops in Ferguson were shot just recently I read. It seems like a tragic accident but those kinds of things are going to happen. I don't see it as an epidemic. It's easy to sit back after the fact and say what someone should or shouldn't have done, but when you're in the moment and your safety is in danger, people are going to make mistakes. The best thing people can do is make the cop's job as easy as possible: don't resist arrest, don't put your hands in your pockets when a cop tells you to put them up, and in this case don't start a fight right in front of a cop and leave your guard dog inside the house.

    It is always tragic but you have to keep it in perspective. Last year there were 250000 misdemeanor arrests in NYC and only one resulted in a fatality which was the Eric garner cigarette case. We have over 300 million people in the US and God knows how many cops. More civilians kill cops than visa vie. Again, the numbers are tragic anyway you look at it but when taking in account the size of our population it is relatively low. I do own a gun the only thing I ever use it for is target shooting.

    I legally own a Colt .45, a 9mm Walther PPQ, a Lange Pistol 08 German Luger with removable stock, 2 US .30-06 rifles used in WW2 (one Springfield bolt-action and one M-1 Garand semi-auto), and a Lee Enfield rifle from WWI. I have shot all of them in upstate New York at ranges and on private property. No hunting or anything, just target.
