Same reason that blacks killing blacks isn't newsworthy. Hundreds of blacks killed in inner city violence? Nah, pass on the news story. ONE black killed by a cop, during the commission of a crime? STOP THE PRESSES!!!

As it should be.

Cops are supposed to be the sheepdogs of society. People licensed to use force under limited circumstances to protect us from the wolves.

Sheepdogs must not attack the sheep. Wolves are expected to. Is it fair to be harsher to an errant sheepdog than the wolf? Yes. We give trust and power to police. Abuse is a big deal and should not be tolerated. Skin color has nothing to do with that.

You can't excuse bad behavior of some because others are worse. Yes the statistics are clear. The greatest danger to a young black man isn't the police. It's other young black men. Usually.

Keep in mind this trend is relatively new. Years of racist welfare state and drug laws have brought us to the problems of unemployed, not in a sane relationship, fatherless poor young men with high resentment to being second class citizens. An education system designed to keep them serfs.

It's not the Klan that's the threat today. That was fading even when I was a kid. Few openly support overt, old school Confederate racism. And those few deserve open and vocal contempt. The threat today and since LBJ, is the false do-gooder who's racism is covered by public intentions 180 from the hidden agenda. Mostly Democrat but not entirely.

How would you feel if you were told you aren't good enough to compete equally. That you're incapable of telling right from wrong. That you're too stupid and childish to behave like an adult. That it's all the fault of rich white people who exploit you. ( and it is, just it's the people telling you all this ) ????.

So. Yes. Every cop shooting must be investigated and if unjustified the officer corrected. If murder, tried and convicted. More harshly but otherwise equal in the eyes of the law.

I agree absolutely - murder is one thing and I agree that the offender - whether in blue, nor not - needs to answer for the crime.

I was speaking of the "wave a gun at a cop" or "try and shoot the cop" situations where clearly the officer was justified when it comes to drawing and firing their weapon.

Agreed. There are justified shootings nearly every week.

American Rifleman, the NRA magazine publishes them every month. That doesn't list police shoots in defense of self & others.

Then there are the true tragedies. The mistakes. Shooting the fellow with an object in hand that turns suddenly when someone screams at them. Natural response plus amped up fear equals tragedy too often.

This also happens with bows and swords.

Limiting people to nerf weapons isn't the answer.

"Limiting people to nerf weapons isn't the answer."

I find it appalling that all the Trekkies that helped to develop cell phones, scanners and teleporters could not be bothered to get those phasers set on stun...

There's a problem with beam stun weapons. They're perfect for robbery. Stun the whole lobby of the bank and empty the tills. Also they don't exist that are mostly harmless.

Sticking sharp little harpoons into someone with wires to a high voltage power source is how you hunt whales, not politely stop an assault. ( the current solution, pun intended ) It's only acceptable as an alternative to slamming high speed metal objects through a person, killing them.

Problems aside, knowing there's no perfect solution that leaves humans with personal choice, a Star Trek phaser on stun is a near ideal self defense weapon.

Never mind the kill/heat/vaporize options. Completely unrealistic power requirements and the ridiculous notion of combining them in one pistol are enough to reject that Star Trek idea.

In fact, on the Trek Homage show "The Orville" during a fight, a main character drops her beam weapon, It's picked up and fired by bad guy, missing, the good guy gets it back, fires, hitting, & kills bad guy. Traumatizing good guy because she had not intended to kill and in the heat of battle, hadn't noticed bad guy had reset weapon to kill.

We want the police, & us civilians, not to have the problem of accidentally using the wrong setting in a crisis. You think shooting someone today is bad, it IS, But imagine the anger when "my son didn't deserve to die because that murderer couldn't be bothered to check a switch!".

Isn't that called a "safety" today?

Boy shot by classmate playing with daddy's gun, didn't know the safety was off...

Regardless of technology - bullet gun, stun gun, hammer, rock - the only true measure of safety is....you guessed it, THE PERSON.

Guns kill people like pencils misspell words.

If a person doesn't understand the instrument they hold, bad things can happen.

Responsible gun ownership means guaranteeing that nobody holds your weapon unless they fully understand its capability.

Understanding comes from education. Paint a face on a watermelon, stick a ball cap on it...and send a hollowpoint through it so the kids can see what a real gun does, not a video game gun. Then explain to them that if they decide to do dumb shit, and get aggressive towards a cop, or refuse to show their hands, or worse yet, make a lunge at a cop...they stand a good chance of being that watermelon.

Color doesn't matter at that point. Stupid matters. Make the right decision, at the right time. Don't be a flat squirrel who couldn't choose.

And...choose wisely. Cops know how to work a safety.

Mea culpa too.

And.... ; ) I disagree about the "safety" bit.

Take Bean Bag guns, for example. You can kill someone with one but that's not the primary function. You might have one mounted under your AR like a grenade launcher for a alternative home defense weapon, but there's 2 separate triggers. I'm sure there's some cases of people accidentally firing their grenade launchers with a M203, instead of the M-4 it's clamped to, but I think the Army puts those accident reports in the "too dumb to live" folder.
