Damb famb, you cold blooded
Danger is part of the job true, and as a result their is a high chance you might lose your life.
We pay cops a premium to take on this risk, but we do that for many other jobs
If a coal miner gets killed you don't here folk say "I have no sympathy, he risked his life" (but of course there are some
Even though someone willing takes on the danger and extra risk, it is still sad and unfortunate when that person lose their life just doing there job.
Calling for a end to systematic racism/bias, demanding justice for innocent people killed by the police and still feeling sympathy for cops that have died should not be mutually exclusive in my opinion
That being said no where in laws does it say not cooperating with police orders, running away from them, or making them uncomfortable is punishable by death
Police killing fleeing suspects only became illegal in like what, 1980s?
The police no have a built in excuse that just feeling in danger give them the right to kill someone. Doesn't matter if the threat was real or not, a cop just has to say he was unafraid and he can spray with impunity. That to me is ridiculous
We pay police a big premium to take on the risk, tax payer also foot the bill for all the wrongful death lawsuits that the police cause, so I in no way find it unreasonable to demand that we raise the standards for the police.
