No, I don’t understand how a man running away from a shooting with a gun in his hand would be problematic for police men. If your job is to determine who is a danger and who is not, you should be able to determine who is a danger and who is not. If I do my job wrong and somebody dies as a result of a decision I make, I’m going to be fired and most likely prosecuted. I don’t get the luxury of a team of my coworkers deciding I did nothing wrong – allowing me to keep my job and effectively avoiding any negative consequences as a result of my bad decision making.
Unfortunately, it is not always that black and white, and I don’t know what job you do, but it’s likely not fair to compare to the job that cops have to do on a daily basis where lives are on the line. Very few jobs run the daily risk of someone TRYING to shoot or kill you, and that’s at least one major distinction. It’s not like roof construction or electrical line work where if YOU make a mistake, you might get hurt or killed (or possibly someone else). In police work, there are people that are ACTIVELY TRYING to kill you.
Also, it is important to acknowledge that if we carry a gun and we’re intent on using it especially in public arenas, then we accept the risk that we might be misidentified in a confusing situation. We also have the responsibility (if we want to minimize our risk) to do certain things that help police understand who we are and that we’re not a threat. I make my thoughts pretty clear on this in Episode 276 where I talk about body language and behavior along with some basic tips to help address this. Thanks!
