That's about as graphic a demonstration of how inadequately trained US cops are as I have seen. Well done.
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.
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.

Those other 3 countries don't have near the number of criminals that we have in USA, nor nowhere near the amount of guns out in circulation that are available to the criminals that help cause these deadly incidents here.
Exactly. We seem to be agreeing that the problem is there are too many guns with too much ease of access to get one. Guns provide far too much impulsivity for very dangerous fly-by decisions people make during emotional times for themselves. Those other countries don't have the criminals we have because their prison system is built on rehabilitation to reduce recidivism instead of like ours which is built on punishment and retaliation.

Plus we have a different breed of criminal here in the US..... criminals that are not afraid to attack or shoot police, criminals that are not afraid to resist arrest.
They are emoboldened by the arms they carry. Americans are no different than anybody anywhere else. We are not inherently more violent.

You are correct that they feel emboldened. What's your solution to keeping guns out of their hands?

Conservatives: "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED"
Black man: *Has a gun*
Conservatives: "Why did he have a gun?"
The depths and stupidity of your comments really cant be properly sounded. Do you even think about what you post? Like...ever?

Let me ask you...do you actually believe law enforcement doesnt engage and shoot armed white criminals? Or that every black person stopped by a cop is shot?

The 2A has been misinterpreted over the years. When originally set down it only prohibited the seizure of firearms held by 'well regulated' state militias. Today it is a jobs bill for the gun industry.
May want to do a bit more research before you make such dumb statements.

And you can quote the conservative saying that right.
Oh you can’t and are just lying. How unsurprising.

Japan style requirements on gun purchasing and an aggressive buy back program and a more highly monitored review to limit production/distribution by the gun manufacturers. Require licensing and insurance for gun ownership.

Why don't you interpret this: "The right of the citizens to bear arms in defense of themselves and the State shall not be questioned."

Cons cheer when states make gun permitting not necessary, then get mad when a black man has a gun. Go figure.
They only want those laws for people like them not others.....

Just regurgitated tripe from other snotty smarmy comments that are more invested in stirring up hatred thn actuslly addressing he problem. That people will look at a news story involving ANYONE with a gun in their waist band that fights with cops while reaching for said gun and their first response is "cops kill another poor innocent black person!"...just...****ing........stupid.
