Trained to Shoot to Kill

The policy of PDs nationwide has become "officer safety" rather than going to lengths to ensure the safety of citizens. They are trained to shoot to kill & use overwhelming force if they feel threatened.

They have been trained to overreact, better to make a deadly mistake than for a police officer to die. It is totally upside down thinking.
