    Who teaches cops they are warriors? And you call them a clan. Wow

    The training people that get hired to teach cops to be warriors.

    And I meant clan in the sense of tribalism. Perhaps the choice of words wasn't ideal.

    Innocent 

    You quoted the word

    When cops are taught that they are "warriors" and that getting home safely and helping other members of their clan do the same thing is more important than anything else, perception of threat is all that matters. Besides, police don't ever decide who is guilty and who is innocent. They deal in "suspects", "subjects", "persons of interest", and increasingly "threats".

    The police aren’t trained to kill innocent people 

    They basically are.

    Quote

    More than a year before a Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin, pinned George Floyd to the ground in a knee chokehold, Mayor Jacob Frey banned “warrior” training for the city’s police force.

    Private trainers across the country host seminars, frequently at taxpayer expense, teaching “killology” and pushing the notion that if officers aren’t willing to “snuff out a life” then they should “consider another line of work.” Frey explained that this type of training — which has accompanied the increasing militarization of the police over the last few decades — undermined the community-based policing he wanted the city to adopt after a string of high-profile killings in the region.

    Perfect topic for the hypocrites on these forums. The same ones who are outraged at people that dont follow social distancing are the ones who defend the idiot looters & criminals

    I don't see too many people (or anybody) who defends looters, so that seems like quite the staw man.

    There will be a massive spike in Coronavirus cases in a few weeks. It's a real concern.
