Comment on the “death penalty”

As long as police officers have guns there is an implicit “death penalty” the use of deadly force. The New York Times once published in their editorial the statistics of police officers killed in the performance of their duties and they suffered a lower number of casualties when there was no “death penalty” than with it. One might argue the gun tech has changed, but on the other hand so has the police, i.e., SWAT, armored vehicles, etc. The “death penalty” perhaps leads to “no way out” or a “no win” belief that leads to further shootings in confrontations with the police, or “suicide by cop”. The Supreme Court reversed the States on this issue, perhaps they will re-examine it again, or the states move back behind the lines they’ve created. Sunday Roundup 12:24 PM 3/21/2010
