That is the problem

I do not want to or mean to be confrontational. I have told this to many people that people who want to serve as cops need to have a certain degree of testicular fortitude. The recent incident where the kid was carrying the toy gun and was shot to death by a police officer highlights this issue. The officer should not be so scared that they have to shoot first and ask questions later. The officer that watched over the high school I went to had an incident where a student was walking down the hall with what appeared to be a gun. He was behind him and pulled his less-lethal taser and issued a command to drop what was in his hand. The standard convention for the cowardly scum that masquerade as public servants today would have been to "shoot him in the head".
