I understand that it must be terrifying to be a police officer in the midst of a confrontation or stand off and that there are all sorts of unknowns. However, there are ways to disable someone believed to be presenting a threat short of killing them. We are clearly not using these methods enough. And we are using them far too often on black, brown and poor bodies. STOP.
