The police shouldn’t have the right to kill like this. The standard (or lack thereof) that we’re holding them to is absurd. It’s like we grant them an overwhelming right of clemency to kill.

So our police departments are hiring some of the least qualified in society and giving them the most power of anyone in our society. What a ridiculous system!I suppose some people think you should use more than .842 seconds before deciding to kill someone.
