[QUOTE=Jetdawgg;4432373]On the other hand , the training [I] “We try and teach that every day you go out, you are going to be encountered with deadly force by someone trying to kill you.”[/I]
This seems a bit extreme[/QUOTE]
Seems...because you have never done the job.
Its about awareness as opposed to actually believing someone will try to kill you every day.
I forget the name of the book, I read it years ago;
It was comprised of interviews with cop-killers.
The overall theme repeated over and over was "they let me do it" and "they werent careful, they never took control of me".
Many of them said the idea of ever killing a cop never crossed their minds until they were in a situation where they realized...they could do it.
The key is... or was for me anyhoo...to look them right in the eyes and let them know "it aint happening". I learned this over time.
I'm not saying to be abusive...or rude...but you must be assertive and in control. Human nature type stuff in a society where there truly is a thin blue line.
