This made me feel sick.

The saying that we were taught when we were learning to shoot as kids was, "Never point a weapon at anything you do not intend to KILL," not "shoot." Big psychological difference.

There’s at least one line every Marine knows: “Never point a weapon at anything you do not intend to shoot.” The St. Louis County Police Department apparently never received that memo.

And I am glad they got rid of that wacko that pointed his rifle at civilians and shouted "I will fu***ing kill you."  When asked for his badge number, he replied "Go f**k yourself".

That was good in explaining the series of little progressive steps. If a modern militarized police force had instantly appeared in the fifties or sixties the people would've been outraged... but today we've slowly been conditioned to accept it. Future generations will know nothing else.
