So, again, you think the cops' fears are justifiable?

I understand why they're fearful and can be quick on the trigger.  That doesn't justify them shooting people when they shouldn't, like the recent teen in Chicago.  I'm saying the fear makes bad behaviour like this more likely.  Imagine if another cop in the dept was shot the month prior by a kid with a gun and this cop was then overly vigilant due to fear?  There's nowhere as violent as the south of Chicago in Canada.  Chicago had 769 homicides in 2020, Toronto had 71, and both cities are about the same size.

Cops are human and have emotions (fear, hatred, anger etc), and the ones that can't control these emotions do bad things like this, and the fact they get away with it makes it much worse.  In 30 years cops might be AI drones without emotions interfering with enforcement and we'll all be better off.
I queef, therefore I am.
