    The actual motto of the police forces of the entire country is "to serve and protect"..... The people. Wow

    Are you special? A person with a gun (armed) pose a much greater person attacking you with fist(unarmed) not much if an argument there pal. Two different situations the should approached differently... By professional law men.

    And you think that doesn't include themselves?

    If there is a person posing a threat and coming towards them, someone else or they are reaching for a potential weapon, they are required to stop the threat which means shoot until the attacker stops. Pepper spray and tasers aren't reliable in stopping an attacker. This is too hard for you to understand?

    We don't all have the luxury of being able to avoid the police.

    "To serve and protect" was a PR campaign created by LAPD in 70s and 80s. The primary functions of law enforcement are to enforce local/state/federal laws and protect the u.s. constitution.

    You're very dense. No one said an unarmed person posed just as much or more of a threat than an armed person. My argument is that an unarmed person can STILL POSE A THREAT. Get that through your head.

    In New York... Craziness! But not surprising.

    There was a controversial murder case happened near my home in Santa Ana last summer. Basically, 2 Mexican chicks beat to death a Vietnamese chick at a night club by stomping on her head. Yeah, these are chicks, not grown ass adult man. So if anybody thinks you can't kill someone with your barehands, then you need to get your head stomp a few times.

    Thats seriously a concern for 5 or 6 police against 1 man? that he will beat them all to death unless they shoot him?

    5 men with clubs cannot handle 1 unarmed. Great.

    It's a PR campaign by the LAPD. Do you know what's a PR campaign is?

    Also, since when LAPD represents all law enforcement agencies? There are literally hundreds of law enforcement agencies in the country (city, county, state, and federal)

    You know, contrary to what seems to be popular belief, police don't have x-ray vision and don't know someone is unarmed until they pat them down.

    In that case, then yes, it's pretty excessive. We had a case like that in Anaheim in 2012 where 4-5 Anaheim cops beat up a homeless man, Thomas Kelly, to death. Two of those cops are now in prison and the other 2 are fired.

    Cops obviously have the right to protect their lives with deadly force. But it's an abuse of power to shoot an unarmed person with out reasonable cause. There's always a threat. But as a peace officer your mind set should not be shoot to kill.
