Little innovation comes about from politics.  We'd rather keep throwing the same old dollars (and lives) down the prohibition bunny hole rather than try something different.

Dad calls cops to teach son a lesson; cops shoot son dead | Police Problems and Policy | Scoop.it
James Comstock called Iowa cops when his son took off with his truck; the 19-year-old was shot dead in the vehicle VIDEO
Rob Duke's insight:

Bit more going on here than the article would have you believe....

The force looks reasonable given the suspect's actions, but there's another policy question: Do you pursue in this situation?

The suspect is known and the pursuit is clearly a public danger.  It would have been more prudent to call off the pursuit and seek a warrant.

There is definitely a lot more to this story that they are not telling. It would have been alot better all the way around if they did call of the pursuit and seek a warrant. I also think that the father should be some what responsible. Honestly if you were to call the cops here in Alaska to teach your kid a lesson they would ignore it they do not have time for that and it is not the police responsibility to help you help discipline your children.

I think that is what is today's problem with the police they do not get all facts and evidence before they start accusing and the interrogation is and can be very scary and people are afraid if they do not give the answer the officer is looking for they will get into more trouble.

[Leadership] Army Doctrine Reference Publication ADRP 6-22 (FM 6-22) Army Leadership

[Leadership] Army Doctrine Reference Publication ADRP 6-22 (FM 6-22) Army Leadership | Police Problems and Policy | Scoop.it

 Army Leadership Competent, Confident, and Agile

https://www.fas.org/irp/doddir/army/fm6-22.pdf ;

 

Chapter 4 LEADER 

2 Empathy........................ 4-9

 

the Army leader to build high-performing and cohesive organizations able to effectively project and support landpower. It also creates positive organizational climates, allowing for individual and team learning, and empathy for all team members, Soldiers, civilians, and their families.

 

2-15. Three major factors determine a leader’s character: values, empathy, and the Warrior Ethos. Some characteristics are present at the beginning of the leader’s career, while others develop over time through additional education, training, and experience.

 

4-4. Character is essential to successful leadership. It determines who people are and how they act. It helps determine right from wrong and choose what is right. The factors, internal and central to a leader, which make up the leader’s core are—

    Army Values.

    Empathy.

    Warrior Ethos.

 

EMPATHY

 

4-42. Army leaders show a propensity to share experiences with the members of their organization. When planning and deciding, try to envision the impact on Soldiers and other subordinates. The ability to see something from another person’s point of view, to identify with and enter into another person’s feelings and emotions, enables the Army leader to better care for civilians, Soldiers, and their families.

 

4-43. Competent and empathetic leaders take care of Soldiers by giving them the training, equipment, and all the support they need to keep them alive in combat and accomplish the mission. During wartime and difficult operations, empathetic Army leaders share the hardships with their people to gauge if their plans and decisions are realistic. Competent and empathetic leaders also recognize the need to provide Soldiers and civilians with reasonable comforts and rest periods to maintain good morale and mission effectiveness. When a unit or organization suffers injuries or death, empathetic Army leaders can help ease the trauma and suffering in the organization to restore full readiness as quickly as possible.

 

4-44. Modern Army leaders recognize that empathy also includes nourishing a close relationship between the Army and Army families. To build a strong and ready force, Army leaders at all levels promote self sufficient and healthy families. Empathy for families includes allowing Soldiers recovery time from difficult missions, protecting leave periods, permitting critical appointments, as well as supporting events that allow information exchange and family teambuilding.

 

4-45. The requirement for leader empathy extends beyond civilians, Soldiers, and their families. Within the larger operational environment, leader empathy may be helpful when dealing with local populations and prisoners of war. Providing the local population within an area of operations with the necessities of life often turns an initially hostile disposition into one of cooperation.

 

B-35. To improve leader counseling skills, follow these general guidelines:

Display empathy when discussing the problem.

Cop Records Himself Shooting Man For Running Away

Cop Records Himself Shooting Man For Running Away | Police Problems and Policy | Scoop.it
The Muskogee, Oklahoma Police Department just released the video from a fatal on-duty police shooting Friday (scroll down for video). The whole thing was
Rob Duke's insight:

The article illustrates why these shootings are misunderstood.  The officer has a mindset that the suspect is armed and the suspect fleas when the officer feels the gun during a pat-down search.  A short time later, the suspect drops the gun while apparently pulling it from his coat pocket.  The suspect stops and turns toward the officer and bends to retrieve the gun.  The officer perceives a threat and fires at the same time it's revealed that the suspect may still be intending to continue to run from the officer--but the officer has already perceived the threat and has begun shooting.  Several rounds fly even as the man turns and runs a step or two away.  It's still not clear to those who witnessed the shooting that the suspect had pulled the gun and that the gun is cocked.  There are so many contradictions going on before, during and after the shooting.
