I wish the news had pictures of how many cops were involved. That was the dangerous situation. What did they think would happen when they were shooting him with pepper balls and setting off flash grenades? What were they trying to save him from? Himself? and their solution was to shoot him.
Is death the proper punishment for not getting out of his truck?
I have little kids, sometimes they do bad things and I have to choose how to respond and often punishments are necessary. When I respond to these situations I do my best to not create a power struggle and let my child "save face." I don't call anyone extra over to tease him, I handle it as quietly and calmly as possible. He still gets his consequence but is able to save his dignity. When too many people respond to a situation or too much force is used it escalates the situation and makes the person feel there is no way out.
(Before I post this can I save a few people some dumb comments and point out this is a METAPHOR. Metaphors are comparisons that show how two things that are not alike in most ways are similar in one important way. The important way I felt these were similar was that things go better when the "authorities" allow someone to save face and that when attacked it is human nature to defend ourselves and resist, not submit.)
