Do some cops need to go back to do some new training? And learn new stuff in order for the media to get off their backs.
Everyone is disgracing the cops and hating on the cops because of what they have become in everyone's eyes. Stone cold killers. But very few people come up for a solution about this huge problem. Tracey Meares, a professor at Yale Law School and a member of the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing,says that “There’s a set of training that is designed to help officers deal with situations that become escalated because of emotions and because the person they’re dealing with might have mental challenges.” traceys plan to help the cops out with their emotions and how to control them seems like a very good solution if we can train our police to stay calm and remember their other training then I bet their will be way less fatalities.
Seth stoughton a former police officer who has served in multiple departments says “Use-of-force training should also emphasize de-escalation and flexible tactics in a way that minimizes the need to rely on force, particularly lethal force. Police agencies that have emphasized de-escalation over assertive policing, such as Richmond, California, have seen a substantial decrease in officer uses of force.” This just shows that with the right training cops can and will do better in the field and when they get into a hot situation they will act right and do their job properly. So with the right training police will operate better and keep people safer.
