Thanks for the personal attack!!! :bigtup: (Super professional!)
I agree with the above statement, the problem is it isn’t just certain situations that force is being brought out for; it’s being brought out for everything! Bring a bigger bat to the fight than your opponent and subdue them with force; when it used to be have the bigger stick ready, but talk the situations down and keep them from escalating instead of having to show the bigger stick.
Low level pot dealer that maybe has 1 oz and no history of violence and no known weapons and known children in the house - bring a tank, full body armor, and 20 SWAT officers all with assault weapons and shotguns; then throw a flash-bang into a baby’s crib! That’s not overkill at all!
Now if it was high-level offender with a history of violence, gang member, and known weapons, sure bring everything.
