My heart goes out to any Police Officer who has had to make the decision to kill another human being. Because it might have to be a quick decision, I wonder how much self-talk goes on in his head. And what is the process used to resolve any conflict the officer may have had with the decision?

We all hope to never have to use deadly force. Most officers that have shared their experience say your training kicks in and its all instinctive. As for the after thought I could only imagine how disturbing it could be, no matter what crime that person commited there is someone out there that loves that person and will miss them. On the other hand we all know very well what duty we signed up for.

Yeah. You or they serve and protect us. I have high hopes of never becoming a perp, nor a victim. I never want to be in a position where I would have to hurt someone else in order to protect myself, but that is one reason why they make guns. I live in a small town where virtually nothing happens - yay! My local PD are good guys and they care. They show up when I call and they are polite but inquisitive. They figure out what has to be done and do it. I am very happy with them. Their boss is a real good guy too.

Of all the policemen I have talked to in my life, not too many of them have been disappointed with their decisions to become Policemen. For the most part they like their jobs. They always wanted to be cops, wanted to make a difference in the world, be a part of something bigger than themselves. They do not lack passion. They are called to a situation that they don't know much about and they try to resolve it, helping both parties sometimes. Ya know, it's like they just knew right from wrong and how to enforce it way long before they became police officers. They are right when they tell you that it takes a certain breed of man or woman to do this type of job.
And they (police) are different from just ppl like you and me. They not only have common sense but many are highly educated men and women. They continually educate themselves. Plus, they develope over time this keen sense of intuition. They just freaking know the world around them. I wish my senses were that accurate!

I really appreciate the police and all that they try to do to make my town a safe and comfortable place to live.
