When interacting with police, its the POLICE who have been trained to deal with a myriad of potentially dangerous situations. Its their JOB to act and react in the best possible way to anything a person might say or do. People, especially black people, should not need to be on their best behavior when talking to cops if they want to live.
So I dont give a shit if someone is screaming profanity at them while holding a steak knife. Its never the cop’s job to kill them.
Killing people is not the police’s job. Ever.
So no. None of those killer cops was never “just doing their job” and they should be able to deal with high tension situations better than any civilian. There’s no excuse.
