It is time to change the strategy when officers are called out to any kind of scene, especially high suspect areas. Officers should always go to any scene with a “suspect set-up to kill a cop.” It is the nature of the beast whose mentality is raised to “hate” cops. These beasts have to be treated in the manner in which they are raised – respect for law and order is not present as we all can see – even with the politicians representing those areas.
Time to treat those areas in the same manner in which they present themselves – no respect given to the cop and – no respect given in return to the people.. Always anchor the “mad dog(s)” first and clear the scene of the innocent before starting the process.
A lot of innocent people are losing their lives because these people have no mentality and no common sense. You have to treat them like you would treat any mad animal – proceed with caution and use the necessary means to protect yourself/others at the scene.
May God protect you in your dangerous job.
