just thinking about the process of capturing a human being

could it be safer and easier to arrest someone once outside their nest/burrow/home turf?

is there a  way to minimize risk for all involved? 

might produce a better outcome or the odds of a better outcome
 
Saw that big time over here. Praying for everyone.

Very sad. I don't know the story behind this and I don't need to know, although officials trying to understand the whole set of events might.

Don't know if I said it here or somewhere else but I suspect that there are a whole range of things that affected how the Capitol Police acted - from failure of their leadership and the administration supporting them and hanging them out to dry, taking a stand to do their job when faced with a clusterfuck, trying to tone things down when the mob entered the building, allowing their preconceived biases in favour of trump to affect how they did their job, and probably more complications of human nature. They aren't all the same person.

In the context of the worst recession since the 1930s, this is totally cool.   Terrific political marketing for the police force.

In the past, I have run across anecdotes of other police officers doing similar in terms of providing a service that is above and beyond what the job description calls for.

I have this feeling that we could debate this for 25 minutes and then end up in each other's arms bawling our eyes out.



In theory or is that according to one narrative? ..... Americans are supposed to inflict atrocities on foreign non-white people in distant lands.  Going along with that narrative, it is always shocking when Americans inflict atrocities on people within their own borders.    Or maybe it no longer is.

Here's an excerpt of the article:

A police sergeant later testified that he was approached by Mohr’s supervising officer who said, “Hey Sarge, we got a new dog. Mind if it gets a bite?” The sergeant gave consent, and Mohr set her dog to attack Mendez, an undocumented immigrant whose only crime was seeking a safe place to eat and sleep. Mohr testified that she was doing her job as trained, and the victim needed “only 10 stitches.”

Of course it's been an outrage for decades due to the tireless efforts of...the president elect. So I don't expect it to get better any time soon.

An investigation has been opened against the four police involved but commentators say that the images — first published by the Loopsider news site — may never have been made public if the contentious Article 24 of the security legislation was made law.

The article would criminalise the publication of images of on-duty police officers with the intent of harming their "physical or psychological integrity". It was passed by the National Assembly although it is awaiting Senate approval.

The controversy over the law and police violence is developing into another crisis for the government as Macron confronts the pandemic, its economic fallout and a host of problems on the international stage.

In a sign that the government could be preparing to backtrack, Prime Minister Jean Castex announced Friday that he would appoint a commission to redraft Article 24.

But he was forced into a U-turn even on this proposal after parliament speaker Richard Ferrand — a close Macron ally — accused the premier of trying to usurp the role of parliament.

For critics, the legislation is further evidence of a slide to the right by Macron, who came to power in 2017 as a centrist promising liberal reform of France.

The commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Cressida Dick, has acknowledged the force “is not free of  discrimination, racism or bias” as London mayor Sadiq Khan announced plans for an urgent review of stop and search tactics disproportionately used on black people.

Dame Dick
said she recognised trust in police was “still too low in some black communities, as is their trust in many other institutions”.

“I feel very sorry about that. It is something I have worked to change and I commit now to stepping up that work further."
