    It's happened before.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Not stating your the Police when you are about to arrest someone in USA where everyone got guns is as bad as bad ideas gets.
    Yeah this is really not okay, and one of the things that I have argued in the past is that only *certain* kinds of cops should be armed...but in that case, then less citizens would have to have guns for that to really work, because there would be less risk to the police.

    I have also argued that our police should be better educated and cared for properly. We live in a country where our vets from war suffer from unadressed mental health issues, and I think this also extends to cops.

    Cops should not be ignorant bullies, they should be required to pass tests for mental health and also have to have a certain level of university education, not just be trained to action.
