    The police thread

    If police officers didn't carry loaded guns, accidents such as this would not happen. Oh wait, maybe that isn't such a good idea.

    This necrophiliac cop thought his body camera was turned off.

    It wasn't.

    Two gunmen tried to rob a jewelry store in South Florida and fled when the owner started shooting at them. They commandeered a UPS truck and led police on a lengthy chase before getting stuck in rush-hour traffic. Police killed them in a shoot-out that also killed the UPS driver and a motorist. In August, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a bill (AB 392) limiting police officers' use of deadly force. They now have to be able to show that deadly force is necessary because of an imminent threat. Fearing for their safety is no longer a justification. I have a feeling Florida's legislature and Governor may now decide to pass an identical bill.

    Four died in a shootout with police after a UPS truck was hijacked in Florida. Could it have been avoided?

    Was this advice really necessary? Don't most black men already think white cops act like white supremacists?

    This number is smaller than last year's total of 47 but it clearly shows that good guys with guns do not always stop bad guys with guns. In most countries, yes, but not in the United States of America, which has more guns than people.

    38 officers have been shot to death in the line of duty in 2019
