No

Police men need a break they have constant stress and have to be on edge the whole time if the person is assulting then the police have every right to use self defence (standard argument)

Yes

Police should have the training and patience to figure out the task at hand and not let it get out of hand (standard argument)

I feel it would be better if you said shootings in general.

Yeah, shootings in general. However if you said that, everyone would have said no, lol.

"However if you said that, everyone would have said no, lol." You are probably right.

Well not everyone though, I think retrogamer would still have voted yes.

I don't feel there is an option that truly states my opinion. In the videos I have seen it is evident the police officers do not have enough training to handle a situation properly. Going in guns blazing shooting as many people as you can is not the proper way to police, and should only be used as a last resort. However, in some situations using weapons is necessary in order for the safety of the officer and to fulfill his job duties.

When one has a gun and the other does not, there will always be an issue when it comes to conflict in tense situation. Training for police officers and education is one of many issues in a combination of other issues. Seems more that a lack of communication between culturally diverse minority population and the Police needs to be fostered. Minorities have the fear of Police cultured over many years of mistrust. I don't know how you can tackle ta lack of trust amongst other factors- there is no silver bullet for the problem.
