Re: BART cop didn't commit murder

I believe that police should be held to a higher standard. If their job is to protect society they should be absolutely sure before either using deadly force or even threatening to use it, even if it puts them in greater danger. After all that's what they are being paid to do, put their lives on the line. At the same time I would support giving police greater leeway to shoot violent criminals if it came with much harsher penalties for mistaken shootings. Great power matched with great accountability solves both problems.
