An example of why police should not be allowed to carry weapons is evidenced everyday. They kill about 400 people each year according to USA Today. Perhaps we should have just armed swat teams and normal unarmed police as was the case in London. They are gun happy and should be disarmed. The say doctors bury their mistakes, but police and prosecutors kill their violently or imprison them for life. A woman in San Jose was fatally shot by a police officer who thought the cordless drill being pointed in her direction was a gun, officials said. Come on. If a police officer cannot tell the difference between a cordless drill and a gun, they should not be allowed anywhere near a gun themselves.
The 19-year-old woman had threatened to kill her family with an Uzi is what the police are claiming about 10:36 a.m. at her home in the 700 block of Blossom Hill Road, San Jose, California.
