Beware of ‘use of deadly force’ trends

With the trend of police use of deadly force hitting the mass consciousness, the method of suicide byway of police is increasingly vital. Protests against police violence have been subverted by radicals calling for violence against police, hyping up a war-on-the-streets. It’s dangerous to know that police will respond to any perceived threat with deadly force. Some people could use this to their own hellish advantage, but in rare occurrences are not successful.

‘Why haven’t you shot me yet?’

Recently at the Ambassador Bridge border crossing between Windsor and Detroit a man waving a replica handgun was shot by border security. According to the Canadian Press:

Shortly before the incident at the border, Windsor police say they were called to a McDonald’s parking lot at 2:40 a.m. ET to reports of a man with a gun.

According to a news release, the man got out of his vehicle when officers arrived and had a gun in his hand.

The man allegedly approached the restaurant, at which time police ordered him to drop his weapon.

Police say the man pointed the gun in the direction of the officers and asked, “Why haven’t you shot me yet?”

Attempts were being made to de-escalate the situation, police said, but the man got into his vehicle and fled onto the EC Row Expressway.
