    @mufasta --

    "How about you offer some solutions better than the system we currently have in place? What do you suggest police do when confronted by a suspect intent on using a weapon. As was the case in the Denver shooting where the suspect used a car as a weapon to insure police officers."

    Start with body cams for all cops.

    A recent randomized study found that use of force by police drops more than **50%** when body cams are required equipment -- and complaints by private citizens drop by **80%**.

    That's a HUGE difference -- and it tells you a lot about how much cops are overusing force in their everyday work.

    Body cams protect both private citizens and police. Nope, they're not perfect -- but they're a great place to start.

    @HVC- Incomprehensible Rant? Nobody is saying that police officers don't make mistakes. What they are saying is that we have to follow some basic rules to avoid fatal conflict such as: Never point a weapon at officers and comply with instructions so you can be secured and questioned.

    Likening this case to the shooting in Colorado, is not warranted in any way. It is just fomenting social discord and encouraging rebellion.
