This doesn't bother me one bit. Why should cops be exempt and special compared to other citizens?
Because maybe cops are put into situations much more dangerous than the average citizen.
That's actually a myth used to drum up support for police. Where are cops 99% of the time? In interrogation rooms and behind the wheel writing tickets.
The unvarnished ignorance of this post made me angry, then sad as I realized it had to have been induced by head injury.
Now, to address the some of the slightly more thoughtful posters, the allowance of physical resistance to unlawful police authority isn't entirely novel. Ohio's statute on Resisting Arrest requires the arrest by "lawful", that is supported by probable cause (a much lower standard than proof beyond a reasonable doubt; a jury could reasily acquit someone of an underlying charge but convict for Resisting arrest on the charge).
The outrageous and stupid thing here is to permit resistance by lethal force. That's amazing.
