Comment: I am a mother

(See in situ)


I am a mother

I'm trying to imagine myself in a car with my one year old child in the backseat. If 5-6-7 healthy looking men with guns drawn surrounded the car, the first thing I would do is put my hands in the air, let them see I'm not armed. I would follow whatever orders they gave for the sake of my child. I wouldn't want them firing their weapons into the car.

Unlike the movies, an officer is not going to shoot out tires, or wound someone, when an officer draws his weapon, he's going to shoot to kill.

Someone mentioned to me it might be suicide by police. It's a possibility.
