Constant fear: A potential dangerous environment
Never give a fearful person a gun. The results tend to be fatal, as we have seen. Any “director” who instructs “always assume that the violator and all the occupants in the vehicle are armed” creates a fearful set of circumstances for everyone, and apparently feels pretty good about himself projecting his own image of power, and fear. Automatically assuming a person to be a “violator” sets the stage for the officer to be judge, jury and executioner in one fell swoop. We have seen plenty of that lately, in New Mexico and elsewhere, with no more shooting out tires or throwing a nail strip out to stop a vehicle. Instead, it’s just shoot the “violator,” children in the van or not. This country is becoming so afraid. We are all in mortal danger from those who fear everyone and everything and carry guns, police or not.
