"So. Our ancestors clawed their way out of the caves, fought behemoths with their bare hands; survived earthquakes, floods, volcanic eruptions, meteor showers and plagues, all so their descendents could sit on the road and wail."

Well I agree with
these folks that this is very disturbing and frightening but I disagree with them about the reason. Several of these cases don't appear to pass the requirements for use of deadly force. I doubt that it's because the cops are evil power-drunk assholes out to kill people (especially minorities.) I would guess that the problem is inexperience and lack of training. We pay for the protection of the police. When this kind of problem exists we should look at the real causes and fix them. Do you really want undertrained, armed people deliberately sent into dangerous, high-stress situations?

UN resolution accomplish?
