Caso325

Pro

I believe that 95% of the time it is truly seen as self defense, and after the case is received and forensics have been analized and the case is deemed as self defense the people still can't face the fact that people have a fight or flight reaction that cause them to react in a way that should be considered necessary no matter what the race is. Who is justified in thus situation dont believe what media tells you find your own information

Alright, thanks for starting this debate. To win, all I must do is prove that there are situations where cops have not been justified in taking a life, which I plan to do this debate.

I will not be talking about race because it you did not make the topic about race.

Thanks

Alright, to be real here, there has definitely been at least one case in the history of the police force where the police have used excessive force. Thanks.

Define "necessary." The battle for truth is a battle for definitions. If "necessary" means "necessary to fingerprint the suspect," then you will probably lose. If necessary means "necessary to save the officer's life," you will probably win.
