could it be safer and easier to arrest someone once outside their nest/burrow/home turf?

is there a  way to minimize risk for all involved?

Sure, but it's not as much FUN. Where else are they gonna use all those fancy military-grade toys?

Local (former) Sheriff escalated situations for ratings. Which led to at least one death. See: 'Live PD Williamson County'. 

FYI, Wil-co recently elected the first Dem Sheriff in something like 20 years. Whats-his-name is still costing them a fortune, in $$$ and reputation.

Very sad. I don't know the story behind this and I don't need to know, although officials trying to understand the whole set of events might.

Don't know if I said it here or somewhere else but I suspect that there are a whole range of things that affected how the Capitol Police acted - from failure of their leadership and the administration supporting them and hanging them out to dry, taking a stand to do their job when faced with a clusterfuck, trying to tone things down when the mob entered the building, allowing their preconceived biases in favour of trump to affect how they did their job, and probably more complications of human nature. They aren't all the same person.

In the context of the worst recession since the 1930s, this is totally cool.   Terrific political marketing for the police force.

In the past, I have run across anecdotes of other police officers doing similar in terms of providing a service that is above and beyond what the job description calls for.

    I have this feeling that we could debate this for 25 minutes and then end up in each other's arms bawling our eyes out.



    In theory or is that according to one narrative? ..... Americans are supposed to inflict atrocities on foreign non-white people in distant lands.  Going along with that narrative, it is always shocking when Americans inflict atrocities on people within their own borders.    Or maybe it no longer is.

    Here's an excerpt of the article:

    A police sergeant later testified that he was approached by Mohr’s supervising officer who said, “Hey Sarge, we got a new dog. Mind if it gets a bite?” The sergeant gave consent, and Mohr set her dog to attack Mendez, an undocumented immigrant whose only crime was seeking a safe place to eat and sleep. Mohr testified that she was doing her job as trained, and the victim needed “only 10 stitches.”

    Yep, it's an outrage. Your boy Trump was not much help.

    Of course it's been an outrage for decades due to the tireless efforts of...the president elect. So I don't expect it to get better any time soon.
     

    Even if it may be hard to fathom for you, Trump isn't exactly 'my boy'. Neither is Biden.
