The irony is that since all of the hubbub about police brutality the proportion of lethal killing has sky rocketed. I grew up in the 60′s and 70′s with the LAPD and believe me, you did not screw with these guys. They’d mess you up good if they had a mind to. Pisser is they had more discretion and might be apt to let you go after you learned your lesson, hell, maybe even give you a ride home. Now, it is a kinder and gentler police department and your chances of being shot dead went up around 300%.
Yes, they won't touch you with a finger until they will shoot to kill.
