commented on Guest Editorial: Why You Should Sign Initiative 873 to Change the State Law on Police Killings
Editor: You have an "it's" in the second to last sentence where you need an "its".
On to the subject matter: Try a thought experiment. Suppose that for a year, all US police secretly agreed to never draw their firearms under any circumstances. How many police officers do you suppose would be killed for lack of self-defence? Probably in the single digits, or a few dozen tops. Compare this number with the hundreds and hundreds of citizens the police kill every year.
Do you really believe the life of a police officer is worth the lives of ten or more citizens? If not, then you have to conclude that the police are too quick to use force in this country.
