Opinion: People who never fired gun can't judge 'excessive force'
By Thomas Sowell
The Deseret News
People for whom indignation is a way of life — and there seems to be an increasing number of such people — repeatedly have outbursts of outrage whenever the police fire a lot of shots at some criminal.
People who have never fired a gun in their lives, and have never had a split-second in which to make a decision that could mean life or death for themselves or others, are often nevertheless convinced that the police used excessive force.
