It is their job to know how to handle such occurrences.
And 99.9% of the time it comes out fine..
That is what they are being paid to do.
Yeah, not paid to die.
The question you should be asking is why was the training, provided to the police involved in this incident, so bad and how has it been changed.
Do you feel the training was bad because of the outcome? IF this is how you evaluate the training then it will never "good". Bad things will always happen, the question should be are they getting better?
Is it really necessary shoot 55 bullets at such a close distance to neutralize a person?
People smarter than us deem this to be the case.
Why did they seem to severely exacerbate the situation instead of trying to defuse it?
Seems like they were "defusing" it, the responded to a call that someone was sitting in the drive through asleep. They cops then saw the weapon, and decided to try to ascertain the weapon from Willie, then get him out of the car. Seems like a good plan? But isnt defusing enough for you?
What went wrong ...
Well look at the thread on ConcealedCarry ... Liberals complain it increases violence, then here complain cops are at fault for someone not using any common sense when it comes to a weapon.
Its fascinating to see.
Liberals defend craziness, then complain people want protect themselves.
Liberals want guns off the streets, then complain when someone is shot because they handle one with no common sense.
