It is nice to know that there are perfect workers out there please send them my way.

Mechanics that never forgot to tighten a nut, doctors who never cut in the wrong place, radio and TV personal who never messed up a broad cast, farmers who never stuck their hands into a corn picker.

Air line pilots who's mistakes kills hundreds at a time.

The list could go on forever of people who have made mistakes on a job.

Why does it happen because people are not perfect.

Those who expect any profession to be perfect do not have clasp on reality.

But doesn't mean that we can't expect them to do the best job they can.

But stuff happens.

When it comes to saving life's ones time would be much better spent going after mistakes made by medical personal. Who's mistakes kill thousands every year compared to law enforcement.

Good point, especially when doctors start driving around pulling folks over to do surgery on them against their will. :rolleyes:

I get your point, it has been made many times here and by many members. If I could do just 1% of what a doctor could do I would likely have little interaction with them.

I likely could do most of what a cop does and yet I could be "consensually encountered" regardless of whether or not I request a cops services. Since the law is written the way it is I have little justifiable recourse to do their job except in the most dire of circumstances.

You don't want a doctor to kill you don't go to a doctor. Not sure how you can prevent a cop from coming to you if he really wants to and you really don't want him to.

There, they decided to buy some groceries and argued over a box of Steak-umm sliced steaks.
Well, no wonder they did what they did. Not mentally competent, obviously.

Who, in their right mind, argues over a box Steak-umm.

Quoted from the autopsy report "his cause of death is described as a gunshot to his right chest that perforated his left lung and heart, exited through his left armpit, and lacerated his upper arm".

So bullet entered somewhere on the right side of the chest, tracked across to the left side perforating the heart and left lung and exits arm pit. Doesn't sound like a straight on from the front shot.

Not saying it happened this way, but it is plausible that IF he did get hold of a gun while cuffed and WAS limber enough he could have gotten the gun far enough around his right side when the gun discharged. Bullet entered right side of chest and the rest is history.

I have seen someone that was hand cuffed from behind reach around the side with both hands and bend their head down to scratch their nose. Maybe they worked in a circus or a carnival sideshow as a contortionist.

I agree with you 100% but would add that if a mechanic forgets to tighten something then he (the company) will pay for the repairs or lawsuit, a doctors insurance will pay for the malpractice, the airline will pay for the damages, but if a cop screws up it is the taxpayer that will pay and the cop won't even loose their job or they will get a medical retirement for mental distress.

Mistakes happen just most cops are not held accountable the same way someone else would in the same situation. All the other jobs described don't come with "immunity" likes the LEO's get.
