Here in the United States police officers can use deadly force base on a thought or belief as in the case study below. I am wondering if this is the case in foreign countries such as England, France or Germany? I also would like to have a discussion about whether this is reasonable for police to be able to take a life because the "THOUGHT" they were reaching for a weapon. In the case study below an innocent man was killed because the officer "THOUGHT" he was reaching for a gun. He was unarmed.
There was another case where an innocent man was on the ground at gun point being ordered to crawl toward the police. During this time the man was begging police not to shoot him. At one point he reached for his pants and was shot and killed by police because they "THOUGHT" he was reaching for a weapon. In this case and most likely the one above these individuals were simply trying to pull up their pants which is a reflex movement if you feel your pants falling.
"Officers responded to the residence, and when a man opened the front door police told him to put his hands up and move slowly. The man, identified by relatives as 28-year-old Andrew Finch, allegedly moved his hand toward his waistband.
Fearing that Finch was reaching for a gun, an officer fired a single shot that struck the man, who turned out to be unarmed. Finch was transported to a hospital, where he died."
Police cannot use deadly force because they THOUGHT the person was reaching for a weapon. Police should only be allowed to use deadly force when the SEE a weapon. Most certainly I want this for Asgardian police.
