Same Dave Grossman who wrote "On Killing" for military? Militarize much?
Truth is...there is a middle ground to this story...one that's not portrayed by this biased article. We need to have a serious discussion about appropriate use of force, proper roles of PEACE OFFICERS, militarization, the failed WoD, etc., but instead this story seeks to polarize the anti-police crowd just as much as the pro-police crowd is polarized by articles arguing that anything the police do is appropriate.
I welcome the discussion...but as we've seen here on probably one of the most libertarian sites on the web, you have authoritarians and pacifists who can't see the middle ground at all.
I will say this....in the Yanez case, Grossman clearly did his job. He scared the living shit out of Yanez to the point he would have killed a 90 year old woman in a coma thinking she could "come out of it at any second, guns blazing". Dude NEVER should have been a cop....
