That's about as graphic a demonstration of how inadequately trained US cops are as I have seen. Well done.
Similarly in the UK. Two years training followed by a further two year probationary period. In 2018-2019 three (3) people were fatally shot by British police from a total of thirteen (13) incidents involving firearms, to which armed response officers were called to deal with. Something is very wrong in America.In the Netherlands it is 2 years and 4 months to become a regular beat cop. And no officers may be out of shape, fat normal officers you will most likely not find in the Netherlands. In the past 4 years 47 people died during or shortly after arrest. In about half the cases a firearm was used. Most others died from heart attack or drugs overdoses.
In 2018/19 the police in England and Wales fatally shot three people, compared with four in the previous reporting year, and six in 2016/17.
