It amazes me every time the DR has a cop shoot thread that the number of people who simultaneously hate cops and think they should be super men.
"Help Super Cop! Help! Calmly talk reason to that drunken slob and show him the error of his ways!"
"That didn't work Good Citizen, he's still being an ------- and violently attacking me"
"Quick Super Cop, within the next 5ms, determine the least lethal manner to subdue said -------!"
"He's already taken my baton once Good Citizen, I'm afraid I'll have to resort to my firearm."
"Super Cop, be sure to use your expert marksman skills to precisely place a shot that will subdue the foolish drunk, but do the minimum of harm to said drunk."
"Good Citizen, you do realize that this ------ is charging at me and attempting to do great bodily to myself and perhaps you once he's done with me?"
"He's going to come after me, FARK THAT - Put a cap in his ass!!"
I'm not normally an apologist for cops, but some of you folks need to get a handle on reality and cut these guys some slack. Should the cops be allowed to walk around and beat people senseless? Hell No!, but there are times when people do get what they deserve.
