I can’t understand why police do not have to participate in coroner’s inquests. Isn’t the oath to serve and protect a good enough reason? Isn’t the reason for these inquests to get the facts first and foremost, no matter what?
I also can’t understand why with so many options — like Tasers, rubber bullets, pepper spray, etc., and just plain old reasoning — there are so many shootings, especially when the suspects don’t have guns.
It also seems to me that having cameras in all the cars, like they do in most other cities, would eliminate many of these problems.
