Liberals constantly complain about American police officers, saying they are too violent and calling on them to be more “tolerant.”
However, a new video out of the United Kingdom shows what happens when “tolerant” police officers are forced to respond to dangerous situations.
It took over 11 police officers to take on one man in the video. In the United States, we value not wasting money and would gladly use one bullet to take that violent criminal down.
In fact, in the United Kingdom, most police officers don’t even have a gun. Only 4.4 percent of officers are allowed to carry a gun and that’s because they were able to prove why they needed one.
The one thing that liberals fail to understand is how difficult it is to react in a situation where people’s lives are on the line.
There is a common myth that police officers are trained to shoot individuals in the arms and legs, to disable, not to kill, but this isn’t true either. Current police training teaches officers to neutralize a target by shooting them in the center of their mass, the chest, because it is the largest target and the least likely area for a bullet to ricochet.
So, the next time you sit on your couch, eating potato chips, think twice before you criticize our hardworking police officers and remember that they are throwing themselves into dangerous positions on a daily basis to protect you from the type of people that you never want to meet.
