Police officers, like athletes, must perform in the "public eye" under tremendous stress and pressure.  The self-proclaimed experts then scrutinize the decisions made, or not made.  They sit back in their armchairs, not having to make split-second decisions.  Many have never played the game, yet they are quick to criticize.
