This is kinda the point so many people are missing. The cops are not fucking Judge Dredd. They’re not executioners. “Oh he stole X, oh he might have had Y” even if 100% guilty, none of those carry a death sentence and all of them still are innocent until proven guilty in a court of fucking law. How many of these empathy devoid apologists would be A-OK with being shot in the back of the head because they rolled through a stop sign? Because this is basically the type of ‘justice’ they’re advocating.
“The woman deserves to be arrested, in jail for a week and charged $1000. She wrestled a bit with the arresting officers but nothing serious. Oh, what’s that? This is the US and she MIGHT have a gun? Well, then it’s fine if they shoot and kill her then.” The cops are the first people lining up with their lifetime NRA memberships, which they then turn around to use as evidence that anyone could have a gun at any time so we always have to shoot first and ask questions later.
