What I find hard to believe about the Bettie Jones and Quintonio LeGrier shooting is that the officers on the scene, obviously, learned absolutely nothing from the Laquan McDonald case with regards on how to handle an agitated and aggressive person.
What if doctors and nurses at Chicago area hospitals decided the only way to handle agitated and aggressive patients was to kill them? How do you think that would go over with the public.
Well, we, the public, see the Laquan McDonal, Bettie Jones, and Quintonio LeGrier shootings that way.
If doctors, nurses, and hospital security can figure out how to do it without killing the patient, I see no reason why the Police can’t. It just takes TRAINING.
Would not that five million dollars the city paid out to Laquan McDonald’s family have been better spent retraining its officers and supplying them with tasers?
And finally, that definitely in cases like this should be UNPAID LEAVE. Not in every case, mind you, but definitely, in cases like these. Seriously, who shoots at suspect through a closed door? How many officers were seriously hurt in Chicago by a suspect with a knife? How many officers have been seriously hurt in Chicago by a suspect with a bat?
