Have you ever seen a musicians friend play the banjo? It only works if the friend is a musician themselves.
Months ago I sat down and watched my daughter attempt another round of Rockstar Rolling, or one of those similiar guitar playing video games. She genuinely smiles thinking she’s accomplishing something.
Chances are in the next year I’ll check in to seeing if she wants to dabble in either strumming a dulcimer or learning to finger a violin. Anything beats the next phase she’s already interested in...the drums.
I'm sorry, but I was trained to use lethal deadly force when necessary.
I've had to make the decision of when or if to use such, and I've diffused situations much more dangerous than this with everybody involved being able to wake up the next morning.
I've had people under my command who obeyed orders up to that point. 1 man with a knife facing multiple police officers, a canine police unit...and reportedly 45 shots fired?
Obviously this town in particular is paying too much for too little on law enforcement.
