@ rich bachelor,
Zero. I'll stick by that statement. A couple of decades of trying to figure something out won't give you common sense. Common sense is what is lacking in many solutions offered. Handleman and Copwatch have unrealistic expectations of what police are able to do, what they should do and the amount of risk they should expose themselves to.
As for you, Clifton (damos), you're not worth the effort it takes to respond.
Since Dan Handleman is such an expert, why doesn't he give his number to PPB dispatch so that he may be called to situations like this.
In all seriousness, he and the rest of Copwatch are extremely critical of actions taken by police when they have zero knowledge of how/why police handle situations the way they do.
He bitches and moans when things go bad and offers no solutions other than asinine flash cards? What a douche.
"Turner is playing a cold game to drive a message he wants his members to hear: Using constitutional levels of force, especially during encounters with people perceived to be suffering from a mental illness, is going to get officers hurt—or worse"
No. His message is that consitutional levels of force can get officers in trouble (Frashour, Humphries, Nice, etc.). Not using adequate force will get officers hurt. PPB now has to play by different rules than any other police agancy in the country because the City and a bunch of civil rights attorneys on contract with the DOJ who have no life experience or common sense say so.
"There's no recommendation that would have stopped Jack Collins or Raymond Gwerder or Aaron Campbell from being killed."
Maybe early intervention by Jason Renaud would have helped.
"But basically, what they're saying is this:"
I'm sure the two black cops giving the presentation were basically saying just that, DamosA.
Clifton "DamosA" Brooks,
You never resort to name calling, do you? Let's read up on your blog... http://targetingcops.blogspot.com/ . Proof of just how much of an unreasonable human being you are. You're in a league of your own.
You put "less-than-leathal" in quotes as if it isn't true (it's spelled L.E.T.H.A.L. by the way). You've been tased twice and you're not dead yet.
