The first instinct of a public servant should not be to empty a magazine on someone's body. As far as I am concerned, any policeman that shoots the first shot before a criminal shooting first, should be scrutinized to the maximum. Seriously, if you such a fucking coward that you need to empty a magazine on an old dude on a wheelchair running away from you, you deserve to be inside prison so that you are protected from the rest of humanity in a safe cell where nobody can hurt you.
Policing is not even top 10 dangerous work. These idiots need to calm the fuck up. Replace all fucking guns with a device that screams "I am a fucking pussy" every time they pull the trigger rather than shoot bullets.
