I just wonder how many shootings everyone talking has been in. I also wonder how much activity decreased, along with the number of officer involved shootings. Decrease in stops, field interviews, on site activity, I wonder. I do agree with more and better training for all officers, but I do know the very difficult situations that officers are called on to resolve. Now many agencies are dealing with staffing issues, due to financial issues. That sure will not help the brave officers, doing a difficult job.
