Police needs to be fully militarized, air, sea, land. Criminals have no respect or care, so why should anyone care about criminals? They're worthless and deserve any amount of excess force possible done upon them. Police need to be safe from these maniacs and need to be better equipped and given full abilities to do whatever is needed to keep themselves safe, and law abiding citizens. Many police officers are ex armed service members, so they need the safe level of equipment on US soil
If all criminals surrendered when confronted by police, this wouldn't even be a question. The matter of a fact is that most criminals are more than willing to fight back. So if you were to corner a 230 lbs man who is wanted for murder, while he is holding a brick or a weapon of some sort, you will probably want to use that taser gun.
The definition of brutality is polices hitting or doing something without reason. Such as protestors being hit, or polices hitting a criminal who has been resisting arresting after the criminal has been caught. I have really not been part of a protest but I'm willing to participate in a protest if it agrees to my opinion and if it's non violent.
Police brutality means that normal criminals or suspects are assaulted by police to arrest/stun them. If allowed, police would be able to put people in chokeholds or shoot them with tazers to arrest them. Why would we ever need this? Unless the suspect is assaulting the cop then yeah, then maybe the cop should try to at least get his/her hands behind their back and then try tazing them or something. Try fists before weapons. That would work instead of just outright tazing them.
One cannot claim to be serving justice or moral good while resorting to the tactics of criminals/tyrants/villains. The point it that a good and just person is one who acts rightly - no matter how much harder it makes things. It's not easy to be just and good, But evil acts can always be "justified" to the criminals committing them.
If the police resort to criminal behavior - then they become the criminals and lose all right to police other criminals.
Not everyone is cut out for police work, And it involves putting aside your base human nature. Criminals have the same inalienable rights as anyone else, And as soon as we start justifying the revocation of these rights (or dehumanizing of a transgressor) we cross a line into criminality.
